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.

West Indies v Pakistan

Today is the start of another away series for Pakistan, where both teams are even Stevens since both;
1. Wants a direct entry to 2019 CWC
2. Want to improve their records
3. Wants to carry on the momentum to up coming Champions TrophyOn paper, Pakistan's record looks much stable but like we all saw in recently concluded PSL where QG team combination just before the finals was disturbed, whereas PZ was with full strength, so my point was the team whose combination would be stable will win, and for that I'd rate Windies for it since they have been playing as a team and this is a second series with almost the same combination, whereas Pakistan team on the contrary is new, no doubt vibrant but like I always heard a term especially from the Indian Commentators, The Trust Factor where when a team plays with a particular combination, management team and other relatees start to trust a particular player, bowler etc, that thing isn't available for Pakistan, whereas Windies have tes…

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…

West Indies v Pakistan 2017 - T20I series

Tomorrow marks the start for Pakistan's first foreign trip after PSL 2017, according to Pakistan time, it'd start at 9.30 pm Pakistan Time. After seeing the Caribbean Boys at this years PSL, I was expecting something extra but than I remembered that the current Windies outfit and the boys played at PSL were two different outfits. But most importantly both teams are equally poised as both are both are in their bleak, means it'd be anyone's game whatsoever, as both teams are mercurial and on their day both can have havoc on their opposite's camp.T20I squad for Pakistan
