didn't India white-wash australia this yr or was it 3-0?

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
and technically Pakistan didn't lose to Zimbabwe
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
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.

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
Waiting for the 2nd test match on 23rd wednesday
