    So if they're in division three, why are they at the top grade 20/20 WC? It's not as though they have any money to buy their way in either.

    Do ya reckon if we went and trialled for one of these sorts of teams we'd get in?

    Lol, it is a baffling choice of team.

    Actually they won promotion, so they are now in Division Two
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Ah thanks. But wouldn't they still have a ranking of like 222nd?

    Probably, a trouncing from the three others teams is on the cards. Also, do not be fooled that 90mph will absolutely scare these people, they may be minnows, but they are not babies.

    Bollocks. They will get blown away by the pace, if it's accurate enough.

    If it doesn't swing, they will be able to play it I reckon.

    Nah, no way. They'll be overcome by sheer pace, I'm sure of it.

    Well, it could rain on the morning of the 8th.

    Afridi blitz 53 in 13 balls. 7 sixes, 2 fours, 5 sixes in one over, and a four.

    Before this Pakistan didn't look as commanding as they probably should've been, is that a record for fastest fifty? In any form of professional cricket?

    From what I gathered its the second fastest. There was a 12 ball fifty in a List A match, jeez.

    Uganda 24-3 in reply. They started well enoigh amd were 21 without loss after three, but I fear they might not make much more than 60 or 70 now. Umar Gul has two, both bowled, reportedly done for pace. Asif picks up the third after two fairly expensive overs to begin.
