Box-In day for both teams

A box-in day for both teams, going to be started
at 0600 Pakistan Time
A box-in day for both teams obviously, as its my personal opinion that both teams aren't in a good nick to go for the Cricket World Cup which is just round the corner, and here there's a team in great controversies Spot Fixing is to name some and because of it several of its players are under suspension, which I personally think is a great setback to Pakistani team. And if we goto the Black Caps camp, they're also having a similar sort of situation as couple of days ago was their chief coach sacked thanks to a winless tour to Bangladesh and India where they had to face a white wash and like Pakistan in their last tour to Australia 2009-10, they had a winless tour to subcontinent.

So in my opinion, both teams are Even Stevens, with home team have a clear advantage that Pakistan lost their last 2 T20s i.e. 2 against England and later against South Africa where they were clean sweeped by the opposition, secondly when both teams met in the West Indies for T20 event, Kiwis were the winners in a nail biting match beating Pakistan by 1 run only, thirdly which I forgot to mention that they're facing Pakistan for the first time in their own backyard for a T20 clash, so Kiwis would be in a chance to set their scores even with Pakistan because record basis Pakistan have the clear edge over the host by the margin of 4-1, so winning this series would mean Kiwis could bridge the gap easily, plus I feel that they've a great chance as they're having THIS T20 match against Pakistan in their own backyard where they'll surely have a clear advantage, already Pakistan lost the only tour match before the T20I match on the box-in day, and as I was saying both teams are in a spot-of-bother as here Pakistan is without their pace battery with Sohail Tanvir made to sit out plus already lacking batting firepower with expense of specially Senior Akmal. Already Pakistan's moral would be down and out because they recently had two clean sweeps under their belt.

Kiwis also had blows like replacement of coach and coaching staff and secondly they'd be playing with a make-shift captain when their original skipper is on rest, along with him is Nathan McCullum, who is this format's favourite batsman as he's the highest run scorer in this format plus highest sixes scorer as well, so muting Vettori and McCullum is a great blow for them as well as one is format's 4th best bowler and other premier batsman in this format. Ross Taylor would by-now be skippering the side, as its still not confirmed who'll the leading their ODI side after the conclusion of the Test Series.

Hope for the best.

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…
