    Chanderpaul has to play in my opinion. West Indies' batting could really do with his experience. It was horrible in the last game.

    Don't see how picking Shiv is linked with these two games.He didn't set the world on fire in that match.
    See below. There might be also be a wishy-washy argument that he would be one of the few players with the experience of being in a winning team against Pakistan in a WC match, but the main reason is that he is too good a batsman for them to leave out.

    I would go with something like this:

    Smith
    Gayle
    Bravo
    Sarwan
    Chanderpaul
    Pollard
    Thomas
    Sammy
    Bishoo
    Russell
    Roach

    Make Pollard and Sammy bowl out their quotas, they simply cannot afford to shorten their batting lineup so much just to have the extra bowling option in Benn (who has been terrible anyway).

    EDIT : Ideally, you'd also get rid of Sammy and play someone who is likely to actually contribute something, like Rampaul or a proper batsman, but seeing as that's never going to happen, I'd go with the above.

    Yeah, I'd go with the same team.

    batting order for pakistan...

    Shahid Afridi
    Kamran Akmal
    Asad Shafiq
    Younis Khan
    Misbah Ul Haq
    Mohammad Hafeez
    Umar Akmal
    Abdur Razzaq
    Umar Gul
    Abdur Rehmaan
    Shoaib Akhtar.

    Reason why i think Shahid Afridi should open is becouse he has some good records as an opener, i think it was against India in 2006 (correct me if im wrong) when he avereged around 80 with a few hundreds and fifties. Even if he doesn't get away with a big score him and kamran will give us a flying start and help us keep the run rate up.

    qarishahg has a point
    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

    Yes, I can see the logic in completely revamping the batting order then expecting it to implode so having to pick cover low down.

    If Shahid opens I would say WI would be delighted.

    i think pakistan improved their feilding and bating. we have a very strong bowling department. only we need to do improvment in batting and feilding. i think pakistan is favorite in quaterfinal.

    I quietly fancy Pakistan for the tournament.

    I don't think there's a better side if they fire.

    But the question is will they continue to fire?!

    They are way too unreliable with the bat. bowling has been more consistant in last few months.

    Fielding... lets not go there! (although that catch by wahab against canada was one of the best of the tournament).

    Theoretically Lil Bravo could keep instead of Thomas but I'm not exactly sure how good he is. Would allow either Kirk Edwards or Rampaul to come back in though

    I have a feeling that West Indies might just pull this off, Pakistan are most likely to take them a tad lightly and that might prove to be their undoing.

    Windies probably need to strengthen their batting a little bit and playing Edwards at #3 or #4 won't be a bad idea, because whatever little I saw of him in the last game kind of impressed me.

    The West Indian bowling with Rampaul and Bishoo coming into the mix looks pretty good and I guess the only problem for them is choosing between Rampaul and Benn.

    Benn shouldn't be in the side for the WI. He has been a iability so far. Quite ordinary really
