point no 3...
point no 3...
There was no way Indian could have limit us to 259/7 in 50 overs
Had our Batsmen played the 50 overs (even Misbah from start to end) we would have won
asad shadiq was really impressive... that kid has cool head on his shoulder..really impressive
This went wrong...
1 Pathetic Fielding
2 Very very Pathetic Captaincy
3 Careless and non serious attitude of Batsmen
Mistakes of the Day in Order
1. Umar Gul
2. Abdul Razaq
(both were absolutely USELESS today. Razaq sometimes I wonder why he's even in the team)
3. Shoaib Akhtar (should have been there in place of Gul or Razaq)
4. Fielding (worst ever or what???)
5. Too many extras (bowlers need to be much more disciplined)
6. Batting (need folks to stick on the crease, rotate strikes, throw the odd ball for a boundary, most importantly be disciplined enough to avoid playing absolutely RIDICULOUS strokes like today)
7. Power play (have some sense on when to use it for God's sake)
If all these mistakes weren't there, and pressure was established from the beginning I got a feeling India would have been bowled out below 150 and Pakistan would be on its way to the final.
I don't write all this to be negative or hate. I believe Pakistan cricket has incredible potential and wish to see it achieve the success it deserves. But the mistakes and stupidities are just too many to ignore. Seems we haven't learned much from the professionalism of the Australians in the past decade. It's overall a lack of discipline in fielding, bowling (correct line), and batting, not necessarily talent.

lot of members here are cursing misbah, but he stood his ground till the end. wickets were falling all around while he was standing helplessly at other end. had any batsmen supported him no one knows what would have been the result. in process of saving tailenders from facing bowlers he had to surrender 6-7 singles. now if those 6-7 singles are deducted then the margin was not much.
The Indian team had fielded well,whereas the Pakistani team lacked at that point(mis fielding,dropping catches etc.)Besides,th Pakistani side really lacked some robust batsmen like Sehwag or Sachin,who can give the team a jump start,and stay on the pitch building up good partnerships.
I was shocked to see him appear so low in the order when there are no other batsman to be with him at non-strike end,apart from misbah.He is a pinch hitter,the role that is played by Yuvraj for India.If he had come earlier,may be he could have set the scoreboard in motion and made things easier for Pakistan...
As someone said , Had Pakistan play 50 overs without loosing crucial batsmen trying to hit boundaries,they could've won.
Bowling was awesome .
Batting was immature. Bye.
Sorry to say, catches win matches!
