    *Official* India in Pakistan Thread

    A week away and amazingly nobody has started one, so I thought I'd oblige!

    The news is that fans were queuing for more than a day before tickets went on sale for the first ODI.

    Also it now appears that Sky Sports are covering it in England.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    That's common in subcontinent, PY. For the Ind-NZ match in Hyderabad last year, on the day of sale of tickets i went at around 5 in the morning but already the queque was 1 to 1/2 km long :O . I had to get tickets for that match in an illegal way.

    BTW, around 25,000 were expected to go to Pak from India alone but Pak restricted it to 8,500 by issuing only that many visas. Lot of hype surrounding this series.

    Seeing as you live in UK, Sky Sports is telecasting b'coz Gavaskar did not accept BCCI's invitation to visit Pak by saying he is cotracted by Sky Sports to commetate for them during that series.

    Finally we have an official thread - there must be about fifteen threads on CC alone which concern this series

    Seriously though, I'm looking forward to next Saturday. Will be a cracker of a series, I expect it to go right down to the wire...but India to take it eventually 3-2.

    If Sky is showing it then Fox Sports in Australia should show it too, as Rupert Murdoch owns both networks.

    Here's hoping anyway.....

    (Does anybody know for sure if they are showing it in Australia?)

    I think the test series will go down to the wire, and most likely be 0-0. But other than that a Pakistan win of 1-0 seems likely as India's bowling will struggle to get Pakistan out twice.

    ODI's to India 3-2. All in all a very entertaining series is expected!

    The real question is, can one guy in Akhter outgun six Gods (in Sachin,Dravid,Laxman,Ganguly, Sewag and Chopra)? I think its impossible for near impossible. Akhter might have taken quick 5-6 wkts against teams of the likes of NZ and Bang,but Indian batsmen are of different breed,and Pak will soon realise that getting Indianteamout twice in a test match will be one hell of a job.

    Apat from Akhter the rest of Pak attack is pale. Sami is wayward, Shabbir is vey ordinary pacer, Saqlain is past his best while spinner like Danish are hard to miss in any club team in India.

    In contrast Indian test attack (Ajit and Kumble will be back for test) have more variety and aggression. Idon't think how bowling out Pakistani batsmen wouldbe difficult for them especially when Pak team has an opener of the class of Shaid Afridi which has been a laughing stock in international cricket since a long time.

    I wouldnt be so cocky ajaagarkaraja. Agreed that Sami and Shabbir aren't as good as Akhtar, but Akhtar is a real threat.

    A real BIG threat. Chopra, Sehwag and Ganguly are nowhere near batting 'gods'. I can see Akhtar getting Ganguly and troubling him very often.

    India's bowling lacks penetration and experience at times, and Ajit Agarkar (no matter how much I enjoy see him playing well and support him) is inconsistent at best. Pathan too is inexperienced but is full of potential. Zaheer hasn't had any warm up games as of yet so he wont set the house on fire unfortunately.

    Akhtar destroyed the much vaunted Australian batting lineup in Sharjah and Colombo in 2002, and if he can do that against Australia, he can do it against India as well.

    Also you can never ever count Yasir Hameed, Yousuf Youhana, Inzamam Ul Haq, Abdur Razzaq and Shahid Afridi out.

    Especially Afridi, he is the sort of player you make fun of, but he comes back and bites you on the backside. He saves his best for India and whether its with bat, ball or in the field, he always puts in some sort of match altering performance.

    Saqlain has a fine record against India, and Shabbir and Sami might just put their critics to rest.

    But my point is this ajaagarkaraja, never ever underestimate your opponent, always respect them - even if it is Bangladesh or Namibia, because if you don't respect an opponent and underestimate them, your half way there to losing mate.

    I doubt Sourav Ganguly and John Wright would be carrying around your mentality. They will back themselves to win no doubt, but they will be also be weary of the opposition.

    And that's how it should be.

    I would still say sami and shabbir are a danger.Sami only had one bad series against new zealand and i would say that he is going to improve and cause havoc.Shabbir is not ordinary,he is one of the better bowlers in the world right now as he proved against Bangladesh,SA and NZ.But you are probably right about Saqlain he is past his best but you never know he might cause a problem to the Indian batsman.I wouldnt class Chopra as a god in the indian team or Ganguly on current form but he does play his best against pakistan
