link it ****
Nil all out is obviously not possible practically.
As for 125, that is how much Pakistan bowled SA out for the last time they won a test match against South Africa, so given that it has happened once previously and worked, it is realistic, possible and hence the comment was based on that.
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
What a relief it must have been for Misbah and Younis to not come in at 20/2.
Still don't rate Manzoor too highly and not sure if he can be consistent but for the sake of the team I am proven wrong and he is indeed a solid player and full credit to him for being able to something most Pakistanis have failed to do in the recent past.
Memories of Sydney and Galle are still quite fresh so I don't want to think too far ahead.
Sydney? You mean one of Akmal-loo
And Galle? Where SL piled on about 500? Totally different situation, but the Sydney comparison I definitely see.
BTW good man for linking Smali but tbh I didn't see a whole lot wrong with it, just a normal crappy match report
1st Test: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Galle, Jul 4-7, 2009 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
Or even something like this, chasing 146 at home.
3rd Test: Pakistan v South Africa at Faisalabad, Oct 24-27, 1997 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
This is what I mean, the ones who are making the smart ass comments have not experienced this sort of nightmares, so they won't understand why 240 all out is not a cause for celebration.
Anyway, back to this match, so far so good, fingers crossed.
Thanks for the clarification, but when we say Pakistan are ahead in the game or their bowlers have won, we say that knowing Pakistan have the capacity to **** it up, but that still doesn't mean that Pakistan have to be in such a dominant position before they can be considered on top. In other words being on top doesn't equal being in an impregnable position
Who's asking you to celebrate? But when you guys constantly foretell doom it gets tired . When your teams doing well and is completely on top, why can't you look at it practically and say " Well played Pakistan now don't screw this up" instead "Were going to collapse as usual "
If Pakistan don't lose early wickets here it's hard to see SA getting back into the match, especially with Benchy's boy Peterson heading the spin attack
Waqar seriously needs to put his fake American accent to rest. And Chishty needs to stfu. Reading aloud every bit of the on-screen statistics as if everyone watching the live coverage is somehow blind, is something not worth tolerating.
Disgraceful commentary team. A few of the SA commies are the only relief.

Chishty is an old man and him pointing out the obvious is kinda endearing.
Maybe standards are so low these days that they shine in comparison. When there are guys like Danny Morrison etc it's hard for me to complain about that pair.
