    If they're going to do this, they'd be better off having a massive mow across the line and getting bowled out in 35 overs, rather than nick and nudge their way around like that.

    Mind you, if we come out and can't get the ball off the square either, I will take it all back

    In fact, I'd like to see our blokes contrive a tie, so even if India win they miss out by a solitary point (if I've got the tables right).

    Not to start a flame but India and Pakistan can say whatever they like to the media,that they don' dislike the other team but deep down they know that ain't the case.
    Pakistan and Indian cricket teams have always disliked each other.
    We all know it,its just that the last few Indo Pak captains have tried being diplomatic.
    like or dislike, they are paid to play every match for a win
    **** them

    Sorry if I offended any Pakistani posters on here, that wasn't my intention. It was simply my observations on how this game was panning out. Dire.

    Even if the Aussies manage to fail to reach 205 runs, India will be out of it. Unless they beat WI really, really big!

    Australia will fancy chasing this down, but Pakistan have a good bowling attack. Will Mohammad Asif be able to pull off something special on his comeback? There's also the spin duo of Ajmal and Afridi, so it should be interesting. Let's wait and see. Join us in sometime for the chase..

    Cricinfo trying hard . BTW disgraceful. Not a good advert for an ODI game

    yeah we don't know maybe they are being tactical might want to face NZL or it could be a difficult pitch to bat on but yes did not look nice at all.

    why i'm worried is that if we lose semi final(hopefully we don't) People will say they took money to lose matches

    That's not a fixed match though. A fixed match, to me at least, implies that you're fixing it for sinister reasons (ie. money), whereas if Pakistan have deliberately turned in a below-par performance here, it's more just making a strategic decision, albeit unsportingly, based on the set-up of the tournament. There's definitely a difference.

    Maybe Australia just bowled well in the middle? The score when I first looked didn't look as though Pakistan weren't trying. I am only following online though.

    Anyway, I hope Australia win and get through. They were most likely going to beat India before it rained so it seems only fair.

    It can be for both reasons

    Also, according to the laws of the game I believe throwing a match is throwing a match
