    The Windies have the talent, they've just struggled to put together an all-round performance.
    Pakistan looking good to win this, but if the Windies can just get everything to click...

    I have a sneaking feeling this will happen if they sort their batting line up out.

    The Windies are near enough just as talented as the Pakistani players, but they struggle as a unit. That's the difference between the two teams in my opinion.

    Still Pakistan are favouritives

    I actually quite fancy the Windies for it provided Gayle, Roach & Chanderpaul are restored to the team.

    Rampaul made a good case for being retained today as well.

    I'm finding it difficult to look past Pakistan in this one, but that's generally when they surprise you and produce an inept performance. They still have problems with their batting if Younis and Misbah don't produce, but I expect their bowling to prove too much for WI, especially if they go in with the lack of depth they've played with in the last two games.

    Think WI will have difficulties in getting Rehman/Ajmal, Afridi and Hafeez away, while Gul and Akhtar (or Riaz) will provide the cutting edge to the attack.

    Tentative vote for Pakistan, they still have the ability to self destruct but i think on current form West Indies look more likely to, chances for WI depend on Gayle and Roach. If they don't fire all over.

    Pakistan will definately start as favourites, even though I am far from convinced by their top order.

    While both sides are talented and mercurial the Pakistanis have better depth in batting and bowling. They've a lot more balance to their side, especially with Chanderpaul being left out and Sammy getting a free ride.

    A battle of two awful batting teams. Either team will fancy defending 230+ regardless of the wicket

    It'll all depend on the team balance that the Windies decide on, presuming Roach and Gayle are fit. Thomas coming in at 6 is just asking for trouble. I can see the Windies rolling Pakistan for a slow total though with the two (maybe three) Rs destroying the Pakistani top order. On paper I don't even think Pakistan are ahead by much, if at all

    lol......true. The batting for both teams is just awful. Gayle the key for WI. Pakistan need Umar Khatmal to do well.

    The battle between the two most unpredictable sides in the tournament.
    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

    May well turn out that way. If you ask me this one is the most even out of all the group games, Think SA, India and SL will cakewalk their games. This one could go either way, though I think WI have yet to peak this tournament and Pakistan may already have.
