    Misbah's innings. Played far too slowly and didn't let Lala get in his groove.



    I agree with those saying Shehzad. Probably not the worst innings, but in the context of the match Pakistan really needed him and Haris to set a strong platform. Shehzad basically was super scratchy and his inabiiity to take quick singles was what hurt Pakistan the most.

    Shehzad's innings reminds me a lot of Rohit Sharma in a run chase. Good player but his approach is more on the high risk side.

    Ballance the first to have two innings nominated in this thread. Dubious honour.

    Morgan's dismissal was the worst. Still can't believe it. But Broad's innings gave gutless a new name.

    Another reckless innings from McCullum after such a promising start

    Wasteful

    Morgan's wicket was bad, but Broad was plain embarassing.

    The Faf innings v Zimbabwe was pretty rotten and seems to have slipped under the radar.

    Gayle v Ireland was poor enough as well especially compared to how Stirling batted.

    Don't really agree with the Broad inclusion. He's played the same innings for a while now regardless of the situation. He's a tailender who came in at 110-7. Through Johnson then having his nose broken whilst batting he's lost anything he once had. Sure it was crap but that's no different from all his batting at this point. Inclusion should be dependent on an ability to play better- Broad doesn't really have that ability right now.

    Yeah, not sure why people think he can still bat and he's always been hopeless in ODI's anyway (ave of 12 and top score of 45 FFS)

    Harsh. Batting conditions for Gayle were tougher than for Stirling and Gayle was in atrocious - nearly Morganesque - form coming into the game. Gayle's innings was not why WI lost that game.

Shehzad just couldn't get the ball in the gaps at all and built tons of pressure on himself and Harris. Once or twice, he released the pressure with a very high risk shot like a charge down the wicket swipe through midwicket and a sliced slog down the ground... but it only ended up delaying the inevitable. The pressure he built at his end affected Harris too and it completely stifled the Pakistan chase.

    It'd have been a good innings if he'd absorbed the pressure and played a proper anchor knock and scored 80-100 off 120-125 balls. But he buckled under the pressure of those dot balls and dug his own hole.
    you have just dissected every Shehzad's knock where he does not get a 100. Whenever he gets a start I began dreading because he suffocates the life out of the innings and only makes up if gets a really big score..
