    Lost only to good teams (I'm assuming Aus were ranked pretty high), beat lower ranked teams... And didn't lose to Zimbabwe. Pretty easy to see why they're 3rd tbh

    yes they whitewashed aus at home (I mentioned that) but they also lost to England at home
    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 because India was no.1 and had accumulated alot of points before their whitewashes, so didn't end up in as bad a state as many would have thought. And yeah losing to higher ranked teams doesn't hurt you as much (England last yr). On the other hand, losing even a single match against a minnow costs you around 10 points straight away (in a 2 test series).

    Basically 1 defeat against a minnow is worse than 4-0 against a top nation

    And don't forget that the other contenders haven't been able to take advantage of India's poor run. Australia lost the Ashes and now Pakistan are merely compensating for 3-0 earlier in the yr.

    Dale Steyn might not play due to an injury. I don't know if it's serious or ABCD was lying to make Pakistan feel easy and then suddenly unleashing Styen at the last moment.

    Steyn is legitimately injured. I have a feeling he'll probably play anyway but either way I don't think he'll be at his best.

    Time to show Pakistan how to play Kallisball, IMO.

    The era of Kallisball is over. Kallis is now balls.

    Funny thing is it might actually rob him of the chance to correct that blemish if he doesn't play... If he does play I don't think he'll be fully fit. Huge blow either way for South Africa... Best batsman and bowling spearhead both gone

    I have a really weird feeling that Pakistan will be outdone by the man they least expect - Imran Tahir.

    Yeah that was my reaction too. He hasn't deserved a spot in the ODI side for a while now. What i like about the guy is that even when he cribs, he smiles
