Look at the partnerships he had though, Younis, Razzaq were bigger culprits for strike rate. Umar Akmal was doing well - and getting enough of the strike - was just fooled by a variation and certainly Pakistan were very much in the game with little run rate pressure till just before that delivery. Perhaps only Afridi might have felt run rate pressure, but you couldn't tell if that altered his style of batting.
He didn't have a great day for sure. But the main story that innings (except Hafeez) was Indians bowling their opponents out at very regular intervals to good bowling.
If you have th blame Misbah, that catch of Tendulkar was probably a bigger miss on his part
