    Is Amir slang for Santner?

    Lol since when do we take Ian Chappell's views seriously?

    Should be a good game this. I've seen all the matches so far this tourney and I think the BCs will win this, but I've got one question: does the pitch look like it will support turn? Because that's pretty much how we won the last two games. If it does I think Pakistan will get trounced, because they seem to still be picking heaps of seamers despite the conditions.

    The toss was crucial in both of NZ's wins, so if they have to chase it probably won't be all that straightforward. Batting frankly hasn't looked great but they did have very slow conditions to contend with.

    Pakistan have looked a bit of a mess lately and NZ have generally been able to handle them in LO cricket in the last 2 years, . Wahab's injury (?) though might not be such a bad thing, with Imad Wasim coming in it balances the attack well and they are more likely to outright bowl NZ out than any of the others in the group.

    Wahab might be out. Blessing in disguise IMO.

    it is a pretty transparent blessing, nothing to disguise about it
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    If Pakistan win this,they're making the world cup final.Calling it here.

    Big IF though..NZ's all-round quality in their bowling give them the edge.The best they've had since a while.

    Hafeez is also injured. How is this Khalid Latif guy?

    That's not always true - from what I've heard, most NZ fans didn't know much about Inzamam before he broke our hearts in the 1992 World Cup.

    He is ok against spin, but yeah NZ won't be losing sleep over him. Hafeez is a poor T20 player as his numbers over the years show, and as he can't bowl its no major loss.

    However it does mean Sharjeel will play which when you look at the gun spinners that NZ have is bad news, he genuinely has no clue against any sort of spin whatsoever. Then you have Shezhad opening with him eating up the dot balls as if his life depended on it.

    Ideally they would get Sarfraz up the order as he actually plays spin quite well, but as its Pakistan they will open with him in England and Australia, and hide him down the order in Asia.

    Its T20 so anything can happen, but its going to need a monster performance from Umar Akmal or Amir for Pakistan to have much of a chance. If NZ are anyway serious about winning this then they need to be beating average sides like Pakistan comfortably.
