    yeah,that was what i was thinking. England bad vs spin is not something that is true for this team.
    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

    Well I heard that Australia had the best attack in the world. Make short work of them despite a shaky start.

    Pakistan's best bet is to bowl their best, take wickets to create inroads and restrict opposition to a below part total - the template they have followed so far in CT.

    The problem with that template is that it is incompatible with England's template. England do not slow down after losing wickets. The strike rate of the new guy is higher than the guy just dismissed. So no matter how well you bowl, 300 is on the cards. You might bowl them out for 300 or you might take 8 wickets. But that total is comfortably beyond reach of Pak based on this tournament

    Also because 270 was a below par total and not really defendable against this England side

    1. No, chasing is the modern trend
    2. Yes, and I hope so. Otherwise I lose quite some money
    3. Yes. Root or Azam
    4. No, same pitch again and good bowling lineups
    5. No, good spin playing batsmen and not so great spinners
