A threat for early exit for the defending champions

Prior to last night's clash between Aussies and Pakistanis, Aussies no doubt outclassed Pakistanis in every department of the game, which was expected and which I was concerned for but other people didn't acknowledged it and were being optimistic with the result.

Don't wanna say anything regarding yesterday's match and performance of Pakistani team but now we're on the mercy of Australia v Bangladesh match, which I think is gonna happen that Aussies would want Pakistani kicked out of the world T20 by making Bangladeshis winning the next encounter against the Aussies because Pakistan no doubt can prove to be a tough opposition for Aussies. That's why teams have this option of depending on other team's results on their last priorities.

So I bet it would be Pakistan who would be returning home, because statistics of Group A are saying so, after playing two matches Pakistan got 2 points with Net Run Rate of -0.325, whereas Australia after winning their match yesterday are on +1.700, they still have to play their match against Bangladesh and Bangladesh on -1.050 and they still have to play another match in this group which is against the Aussies. So a person with limited mathematical knowledge can easily understand that if Bangladesh win their final match of the group against Aussies, they will definitely going to become the second seed team of this group with Australia replacing Pakistan as the First Seed team in Group A. All Pakistanis can hope for is that Aussies thrash Bangladesh out of this tournament!

Tough luck. We should start preparing for "grand welcome" for our team. And like I said, Aussies will definitely do the same to kick out Pakistan as they are a difficult opposition to tackle and to make their position concreted for the semis.

Whether you agree or not, much to learn than celebrating

More cons than pros, when we talk about the outcome of this seriesAtlast the end of Pakistan-England series about to, when Pakistan would be facing the English at Abu Dhabi tomorrow for the final and the decider T20 match, where according to the points table, both teams are equally poised but in my personal opinion, Pakistan's batting woes were exposed in this series. On the longer version, they were able to hide their weakness but in One Day and T20 series, it were exposed and not only exposed but exposed miserably. In such circumstances, even IF Pakistan able to clinch the series, still I won't be rating it as a big achievement due to genetic flaw in our batting and than fielding. Earlier it were said that out fielding and than batting were headache, I slightly differ the equation in putting batting first and than fielding, because although Pakistan DID had an exceptional 2011 but they won it on bowling basis, secondly Pakistan is going through the same phase, l…

The day after the thrashing

Today i.e. 16th June 2013, the day when Pakistan is all out from the penultimate edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, a trophy which Pakistan couldn't stage on their closet. But the time when the team was announced for Pakistan, since than whenever someone was asking me about the same including some of my Indian colleagues, I was not optimistic since what I already had heard about England and its weather at the start of their and the European summer, is very windy, cloudy, overcast and chances may that there would
going to be rain intervals for sure, and therefore in our current team there were no players except Misbah himself who could able to play the ball late and could shift gears to back foot.

As far as our bowling was concerned, I was not satisfied in a sense that no doubt pace battery was awesome but on a broader perspective it was a monotone attack because all left handers, except Wahab Riaz none was able to generate late swing or taking advantage of the la…
