    It might be harder to score 400+ now that wahab is out of the tournament. 350+ is still on though
    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

    IMO there are basically two ways in which Pakistan can win this game -

    1. Similar to what I thought was possible for the India game, hope that the pitch offers something for the pacers , swing the ball and hope for a good lollapse from SA. (This strategy requires Sarfraz to not be full ****** and go to a spinner in the second over of the game after an excellent first over by a pacer.). This was more likely against India though, less chances of this happening against SA.

    2. A different one which would not have worked against India (because Kohli), is to bat first and try getting to 270+ somehow. SA have a tendency to come under pressure while chasing. (Especially if you can pick up ABD/Amla without much damage.)

    I don't see any other likely way of Pakistan winning, overall I would say 85-15 in favor of SA.

    Pretty much.

    Pakistan will have to force the pace and look to cruch SA with pressure .

    The problem with that template is that pitches are not prepared for that kind of cricket anymore nor do Pakistan have the bowling attack anymore. With 2 new balls and no reverse swing, Pakistan do not have the skills to pick up wickets later in the innings, nor do they have Saeed Ajmal to give them breakthroughs in the middle overs.

    The best bet is to have Amir/Junaid pick up a few early in the innings when batsmen are still cautious and then hope that pressure restricts South Africa.

    But then they'll still have to bat out of their skin and match a total that is still quite high by their standards

    Apparently Sarfraz is so cool that he names the final XI a day before match and does not care about the conditions etc

    Solid decisions by Sarfraz. Shehzad and Wahab were weak links.

    Hopefully he drops Imad from that 12.

    I think I'd rather play Shehzad then Hafeez, especially if the latter is not going to bowl. I'd probably also play Fahim over Shadab IF Hafeez is to play and bowl.

    Shadab is the best fielder in the side, went for 51 runs, had a catch dropped, and got the breakthrough. Best bowler in the match after Amir from Pakistan's perspective. Drop Imad for Fahim.

    Imad looked the real deal last summer, how come he's not considered good enough these days?
