    **Official** Pakistan in Scotland and Ireland 2013

    I'm not sure if this is actually being discussed anywhere already but Pakistan are already playing their first ODI of the tour; struggling against Scotland. Ajmal saving their arse with the bat to a large extent before playing an awful shot. Looks like they'll just scrape over 200.

    They got 231 in the end, courtesy of a couple of Misbah sixes off Carter. Should be too much for Scotland with Ajmal and Junaid playing but you never know.

    I was surprised Josh Davey didn't bowl at all given he was selected for Middlesex the other day as a frontline bowler and batted #8. His batting is definitely his stronger suit IMO but it's still surprising to see him not bowl at all in this lineup.

    didn't know there was such a thing taking place until I went to cricinfo a few hours earlier
    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

    It's a pretty good idea from Pakistan IMO; acclimatising themselves to what will be similar conditions to the Champions Trophy. You go straight from the Ireland series to your CT warmups. Better prep than any other side will be getting, and it promotes high-level associate cricket as well.

    yeah.....I first thought it was a warm up game of the CT.....then realized that Eng-NZ series going on so warm ups might still be some way off

    "With a stick of rhubarb" says Kyle Coetzer.

    The batting really drops away in class after these two (Coetzer and Davey) so they need to make this partnership count.

    And now Coetzer is out. Going to be really hard work for Scotland from here with Ajmal yet to bowl. Reckon he could just run right through them now when he comes on.
