    Azhar Ali looks like he's trying his best to get out early and that's actually quite concerning...

    > cuts it in the air 4th ball
    > Goes for a suicidal run in the second over
    > Runs down the track to smash Thisara for a huge six

    This is a weird Azhar innings

    and cricinfo says "Azhar, Zaman STEADY in chase"
    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

    Now 91Jmay, you had said you would rather face Pakistan/Sri Lanka over South Africa earlier in one of the threads. Why though? Just interested given South Africa's performance in ICC tournaments and both these sides have looked better than South Africa, regardless of who qualifies.
    Because one or two games doesn't change the fact that Ab, Faf, Amla, De Kock exist. Sri Lanka/Pakistan aren't going to be walkovers but their strengths go up against our strength, and I back out strength over any bowling attack. Where as if a strong batting line up went second against us I'd back them in most cases unless we go 350+.

    I would still want to face South Africa in a knockout because in a tournament..it isn't about who's the better side overall, it is about that 1 game.

    Yeah that is true.

    This is why I'd fancy either of these two teams though. Score 280, which i'd back us to get past fairly comfortably and you can put them under so much pressure.

    Pakistan are in a really excellent situation to screw this up.

    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...

    Wouldn't worry until at least one of Azhar/Malik are gone, plenty of batting to come to be fair.

    Babar Azam has been the disappointment of the tournament. Supposed to be the good one

    I rate Imad, but these two must build a partnership else they will leave too much for the lower order to do.

    Anyone's game now though.
