typical pakistani batters ......... besides shafiq and umar akmal none cud take in the labour to finish off the match in style..they may peak the table but batting perofrmance speaks other wise..easily cud have lost such a one sided match..they shud do a lot of soul searching after this match.especially so called seniors in yunus, misba and afridi.. these three guys lukd lyk they were giving catching practice..an openers need to work on getting singles instead of blocking lyk as if in a test match..

Can umar akmal make his fifty ?

Do u guys think Ian Chappel is a little over critical of Afridi's captaincy and Pakistan team in general?

it means australia will be crushed out from this world cup by india in quarters and take revenge of 2003

Oh Yes Pakistan Need a little score but it is a big test for them to become World Champions.

Rehman deserved the reward for bowling so well, he has been amazing during this world cup so far, except that one over against NZ.

Fielders are deep allowing australian to take single easily, Afridi needs to bring the fielders in to put some pressure

Posted by dummy4fb on (March 19, 2011, 11:20 GMT)

Dont understand why Afridi needs to give bowling to Razzak just bcoz he is in the team. Spinners are doing a good job, should keep the spinners on.
