    Yeah, I realized that and changed my post. Unfortunately, Turd was too quick for me.

    Don't worry, Pakistan's not going to underestimate India, and that's why I think nothing's gonna stop them from winning. They should play the same team, with Nazir and Hafeez opening, and then Malik 1 down and Afridi at 4, no later than that because so far Pakistan haven't been able to utilize him properly because he's been coming so late down the order.

    After long long time (Since 2003 WC India-Pak Match) Watched the match with bunch of buddies and what a game it was. SreeSanth and Yuvraj were amazing. Bhajji bowled well.

    Great cricket, didn't know 20/20 could be so interesting, but it sure was and now suddenly Scaly's post on Twenty20 make a lot of sense.

    Younis needs to bat at #3 IMO, he's the rock of the Pakistan order. Malik, Afridi, Alam, Akmal to follow I reckon.

    Looks like you don't keep up with the news

    They beat Aus in a Semi and Got 1 Million

    Pak got $10,000 USD for beating them in a group match

    "Musharraf had also lost his cool after Pakistan's dismal show in the last world cup in March when the team was eliminated in the first round of the competition in the West Indies.

    There was more good news for the Pakistani players after their win over Australia when the board also announced a cash prize of USD 10,000 for each of the players."

    Hopes opens for Bulls but certainly won't be doing that in odi series in India (thats if he is selected), but Hopes bowling at 140K, now that news for me i considered him to be in the Ian Harvey mould as a batsman and bowler, but looking at his stats from the last season he certainly seems to have improved a lot.
    I guess then Hopes = late bloomer!!

    Pakistan's best batsmen have been Malik and Misbah Ul Haq in this tournament, and you always want your best players to face maximum number of overs, especially in a T20. Younis Khan takes a over or two to get going( he scored I think 2 runs of 10 balls against NZ), but if he has to come down the order with few overs to go and Pak are in a good position, he can just start playing his shots right away. I guess the team management will decide what's best, but if they've lost only 1 or 2 wickets in first 10 overs, then there's no way Afridi, Malik, Misbah shouldn't be batting ahead of Younis Khan.

    Indian teams WC83 and T20 WC 2007

    are both primarily composed around a couple of unquestionable young talents (then Kapil, now Yuvi) but mostly a collection of non-superstars who have no reputations to lose and can play out of their skins as a team (then Amarnath, Binny, Madan Lal now almost everyone) .

    Except Dhoni and Yuvraj - none of the others could take their spots for granted in the regular team. (and not even Yuvi in tests). All the other internationals are either trying to make a comeback (Sehwag, Harbhajan, Pathan) or seem on the fringe (RP, Uthappa, Sreesanth, Gambhir) or worse (Rohit, Joginder).

    Ganguly and Zaheer now both in their second acts, are also examples of non-superstardom. Amazing what a bit of hunger can do. Perhaps giving Yuvi the Porsche was exactly the wrong thing to do.

    Australia is touring India soon...i won't be surprised if they whitewash India in the series. Not saying to make my Indian mates mad over here, but if you look at the facts...Aussies come really hard on you if you give them a run for their money....and India surely did today.

    Anyways looking ahead for the final game bw Pakistan & India. It's gonna be one hek of a cracker.

    Even if Australia were under-cooked for this tournament, if this would have been an Odi tournament they would have still walked away with the series, its just that T20 brings all the teams to a plain-level-field so anybody can beat anyone, but that would change too as teams play more and more of T20 cricket and the better teams would move ahead of the weaker sides when they gain more experience of this format of the game.
    This is pretty much exactly what I've been arguing and I've been shouted down for it.

    If Indian fans have improved as much as they think they have it will indeed be a whitewash. In their favour.

    Shreyans Motors Mumbai are official dealers for Porsche. They offer Boxters, the Cayman, 911 Carrera and the Cayenne. They import the cars deal with the import regulations and pay cutom duties and other taxes and you can buy from them.

    It does not help as far as the price is concerned but the hassle of import formalities isnt there.

    Imported cars in India are very very expensive.
