    Nice post.

    Odds of batting failing? I guess the odds would be something like 13 out of the last 16 times

    Want Styris to score runs tomorrow.

    bandwagon.jpg I am still on it.

    I realise you jumped off the bandwagon some 5 or 6 losses ago and have now listed New Zealand as your 4th most hated team.

    My optimism is based on the fact we used to be ranked 4th with the same team. They have to return at some point.

    NZ thrash minnows,and become a minnow themselves against the test sides.

    Expect the trend to continue.I have a feeling Afridi will come good with the bat this time.

    They weren't pushed big time against Canada, to be fair. They were never really in danger of losing. It was a bit like our match against Ireland yesterday, maybe a touch closer.

    I disagree with you they were bowled out for 184 which fair enough was a tricky total on that deck but that 100-3 Canada had a real chance, after that Afridi raised his game and was one way traffic.

    But for a good stage of that match the upset looked like it was on, that was never the case yesterday when we played Ireland.

    Nah they never really had a chance to score 180 against that attack, in my opinion.

    I think we will have to agree to disagree! at 100-3 I really thought the chase was on and they had a chance of course that changed shortly after but at that moment they had a real chance IMHO

    The trouble was that once Canada would let the req run rate slip they would have an uphill task against the Pakistan bowling attack and especially on that pitch. That is exactly what happened. The key against this Pakistan side is to get a good quick start. That would bring Afridi under pressure. None of the sides have managed that so far. Even SL started off slowly, Gul gave away a 16 run over which boosted their run rate otherwise the start was not that great.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    You've just doomed us to another thirty games of terrible batting. I hope you're happy young man!

    Misbah Ul Haq and Ross Taylor are the key here. If either of them fail their respective team can see their chances of winning grow thinner. Taylor especially really needs to step up if New Zealand are looking to go through to the later stages of the tournament. I actually think both teams bowling attacks are pretty good. Pakistan could capitalise on a bad Southee/Bennett day though. I have a feeling the New Zealand selectors might see this coming though and play Oram at the expense of probably Bennett. Both teams will be go into the game with a decent amount of confidence, especially Pakistan.

    What's gone into you man???? You were the guy who was hell bent on proving that Kyle Mills was better than Shahid Afridi in all areas of the game. You seem to have lost all steam????
