    I think bowling wise we are not that far off from SA.

    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

    SA are probably stronger with the bat now though, and as you said, you've taken into account the fact SA randomly drop hope tests, and that is what the Port Elizabeth loss was.
    Really I thought it was a very competitive series with all games open till midway the final innings if Shoaib was fit (I know) the whole series Pakistan would have won the series however this SA side is definetley much stronger that the 2006 side with Pakistan being weaker.

    have a feeling SA is much tougher mentally after the away wins to Eng and especially Aus where they were on the back for a lot of the series they might have just overcome the random home losses.

    My prediction 2-0 to SA but certainly Pakistan have the ability to pick up a win. Think this will be a very competitive series. Also none of the teams will be under much pressure, isnt it? Pakistan coming off a series win against India and also no one expecting Pakistan to win the series so it's all to play for and SA proved against England and Australia.

    yeah, at this point in time it is difficult to see Pak winning given how their bowling pans out.

    PEWS thinks Pakistan's bowling will suck in SA conditions. Not sure about that. It could be like the 2010 Pak-Eng series. Where the bowlers from both sides wreak havoc. SA batting to carry the day for their side

    Do you have any inside information that first test will not go beyond 4th day?

    I would not play Irfan in a 5 day game yet - It just takes toooo much on one's body, and Irfan doesnt have the body for it IMO.

    I would go and open the bowling with Junaid and Ahsan (lets see what the new guy is made out of, there is a lot of hype about this guy - a lot. Even I liked little bit that I saw in him in U19 WC).

    Bowling line up with Junaid/Ahsan/Gul/Ajmal/Rehman and Hafeez just sounds super nice.

    Battingwise, I would go outside the box and open with Taufeeq and Nasir, play hafeez at asad's spot


    • We get to give nasir a chance when he is in form and have him open the inning.
    • Nasir is far more likely to be comfortable against pace and new ball than hafeez.
    • Protect hafeez from new ball and bouncy SA conditions and have him come to bat with an older ball in operation.

    That's what I would do but unfortunately I know how much of 'thinking' misbah puts behind his decisions so the top order that he is more likely to play is going to be

    Hafeez
    Taufeeq
    Azhar
    Younis
    Misbah
    Asad

    Wouldn't go in with 5 bowlers, especially when your keeper is not exactly the best batsmen going around and you have a decent option in Hafeez. Makes the lineup way too fragile. Rehman will have to sit this one out unfortunately.

    yeah....going with both Rehman and Ajmal will be very risky.

    Sarfaraz is a bit of clown with the bat.

    They have to try Irfan out. Test matches don't take as much toll on the body as do LO games
