    Yeah, I know that the rule didn't used to be over waist height. I should have been stumped of one in a game a few years ago.

    game over for Pakistan here it seems.
    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

    Nah. Even if they lose this by a huge margin (ie) Bangladesh gets a bonus point, Bangladesh still have to beat Sri Lanka and finish on 9 points for India to pip Pakistan (assuming we win over Afghanistan with a bonus point). Strangely enough, if Bangladesh win this with a bonus point, they'll be the only ones with destiny in their own hands. If they also beat Sri Lanka with a bonus point, they go through no matter what

    Not complicated enough? Even Afghanistan can go through but only if they win by an absolutely humongous margin AND Pakistan and Bangladesh finish on 9 points

    great effort by Bangers sure Pakistan for some reason has turned on the sleep mode (don't know why when their final place is not yet confirmed) but they have actually manged to grab the opportunity with both hands.

    Is that because head to head trumps all?

    Yep. They only use NRR if it's a three-way tie on the ladder or the two teams tied on the ladder also tied when they played.

    Bangers should attack with Pak with as much spin as they can here.

    even the start is barely run a ball. Pak haven't lost an ODI to the bangers since that fateful odi in the 1999 WC. I guess they will lose tonight

    yeah, Shakib's 2 overs have barely gone for 3 runs.

    I can't remember how in hell did we become so **** at playing spin recently in ODIs. It used to be the pacers who used to trouble us.

    Ahmed Shahzad seems to have forgotten that this is an ODI and that Pak are chasing a huge total
