    Their problem isn't lack of practice. They work extremely hard..The last two coaching regimes - Waqar and Arthur have had a lot of emphasis on fielding and they worked a lot..

    The problem is that they lose focus in the game, drift away, are not anticipating the ball. That's why they are late to the ball, or not really expecting the catch, or dropping a sitter. This is not lack of practicice but lack of focus and confidence. Shehzad was fielding yesterday and he still misfielded. That's because he is just disinterested in the game..he is there physically but in his mind he doesn't give a **** about what happens on the ground. So how do you field well with that kind of attitude?

    Love how the poll at the top shows no one voting for Pakistan. Anyone really see that coming, especially after the India match?

    ^ No one saw it coming but here's South Africa vs Pakistan ICC tournaments in the last 10 years

    Played 6
    Pak: 5, SA 1

    This is a complete 180 from the 90s when Pakistan used to thrash India and be scared of South Africa their bogey team

    Who'd've thought?

    Also well done on umpire Ravi for breaking new ground by calling a no ball when it happened rather than having it sent upstairs.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly notwithstanding the fact SA is also quite "skilled" at finding ways to lose.

    South Africa seem to have got the definition of an "X-factor" player wrong when it comes to Parnell. There's absolutely nothing wrong with having a player who on his day can put in an extra special performance that almost single-handedly wins the game, but it's supposed to be an extra specially good performance that wins the game for you, not an extra specially bad performance that wins the game for the opposition.

    It was beautiful to see Hasan's MOM presentation, the way he called Imad over to translate for him. Instead of having the manager or coach do it, it should always be your fellow team mates who translate for you. Helps build the camaraderie.
