marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
That's it its all over for Pak........................there is no way the tail will pull this one off from here....Afridi, Umar, Rana..........the pitch is too good for them to bat freely....
I still ask the same question why make a green top when you want the trohpy to be a success and you want to see hitting and runs being scored..............WHY??????
Very important over on its way from tonge.................hopefully Pak will survive it.
Umar is averaging 70 so far in his 5 ODI's that is pure beauty.....
I want to see him up the order perhaps....in place of Misbah.....Misbah is a waste seriously....he is useless now..
100 up for Pak and a sigh of relief for me...
Any thoughts on the NRR? Looks pretty ordinary for Pak....
Umar has shown a lot of character here in this game.......people like Misbah should be sacked at once now....their days have expired........

That was blatently deliberate from Best.
The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
"Somebody in the top four has to score a hundred, if we are to compete." - Reifer
Luckily he bats 5.
Tonge looks a decent bowler, certainly better than Baker. In fact I'd say the Windies C/D team did a pretty good job of defending that score. If Kemar Roach had been playing instead of Tino Best (who must never play again) it would have been closer as he swings the ball prodigiously. So all in all the bowling didn't look bad and Miller is a decent enough spinner if we get slightly different conditions in the next match.
The batting is disgraceful though. Not one batsman looks even half as good as the seniors. Those were not easy conditions for batting and the seniors might not have found it easy. But the fact remains that none of these players can play spin bowling effectively and today they found the seam movement extremely difficult to handle.
Why oh why is Flloyd Reifer in SA? If we are going to be so poor at batting we might as well have picked Braithwaite and Creary. 19 year old Kieron Powell should also be playing so we can establish some kind of positive from this tour. The best thing that can happen would be for Reifer to pick up an injury before the next game and therefore Sammy would be captain.
Pak always manages to put themselves in a tough position...
Good bowling from Gul and Aamir today.....it makes that much harder for Asif's return.
