    With Gayle in the opposition I don't see how any team can be comfortable in this position. But Pakistan is batting like 220 is a safe score. Add Pollard and you see why they need to push more.

    He is in the side because he was the one who brought back Misbah from the wilderness. Misbah owes him big time.
    I agree with this..I don't rate him highly.. But somehow, he always brings his A-game against India..

    He has to go home remember

    Shoaib Malik's example is like Irfan Pathan's who would be anally screwed by every team but he would **** the **** out of the Pakistan batting
    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

    The problem is that Pakistan can't afford to lose any wickets. If they lose wickets now they might not even get to 200 hence they are batting like this. And the bowling is comparable to the best attacks out there so Misbah knows that if Pakistan cross 200 they are in with a chance especially with a team like WI who can collapse just like Pakistan

    Shoaib is an all rounder. Maybe not a very good one but he is definitely in the team for his batting and bowling.

    WI are bowling well, Pakistan can't afford to lose a wicket and I think they'd be happy enough if they are 85-3 from 25 overs, then look to lift the run rate.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    84-3 from 25 overs. Can't confirm that they are happy enough with that score. :P
