    Afridi is the man who won this game for Pakistan IMO.

    Yeah I noticed this as well. Afridi probably gets away with it as well what with Malik's passive nature.

    Why is Afridi is allowed such a dominant role within the team, he is hardly a Murali or Lara in the team.

    His a senior player who has the respect of Malik, he should have a dominate role given his experience.

    Enjoyed the last game TBH.

    Just like in ODI's where 230-270 range produce the best games, it seems in T/20 the range of 150-170 will produce the better games. Last evening game was as awful as that 434-438 game.

    Most exciting match I have ever seen was the final CH match were NZ chased a score of 340.

    Quite a poor match from what I remember, the quality of cricket especially the bowling was utterly rubbish.

    Far out, another one.

    Whilst I am far from a fan of Twenty20 cricket, Asif isn't going to suddenly bowl defensively in test cricket because he's played this World Cup.

    People act as if bowlers like Monty and Asif are 2 year olds. Seriously, Asif isn't going to be influenced how to bowl in tests because of any limited overs cricket. He is a very very intelligent cricketer, and you only need to read his interview on Cricinfo to see that.

    To be perfectly honest some of the bowlers were perfectly on song especially for Australia, a one wicket victory in the last over is always a grand match, Tait completely skittled our top order and Bracken went for nothing but Fulton began playing some beautiful strokes and from there momenteum built.

    To be fair to him (and in general I agree with you), he said most exciting and not 'best'.

    Poor quality matches can be exciting.

    I thought Scotland bowled quite well and set off their chase well too. Then they seemed to have some kind of collective brain meltdown when the spinners came on and it was all over. Shame!
    Ponting is made out of hay. Lolz!

    It is the Sottish mind set to try and hit it over the fence when they can't, they should concentrate on hitting it into the fence instead!
