Embarrassing total. Much more embarrassing than Pakistan's even which was bad in the first place.

Lowest team 'all out' total in Cardiff before today's game was 202 in Eng vs PAK some years ago.

It's going to be a long summer for the Aussies especially if Clarke cant get his back right.

Tense game. Too close for comfort for NZ.

Pakistan vs SA should be great tomorrow if PAK can get even average batting.

Great game. Not sure why Matthews chose to go with a spinner when the Kiwi's were visibly uncomfortable against pace.

Steyn is out for tomorrow, no Morkel, no Kallis. The Saffers have basically their 2nd unit in the bowling department. The only real threat I see is Tsotsobe. Their batting is still pretty strong 1-5 though.

Given that, I'd still favor Pakistan because of the bowling they have. I see 6 world class bowlers in their team, along with about 4 batsmen who on their day can change the outcome of a game. I don't think the SA bowling will be strong enough to break down Pakistan before 250.

Going with Pakistan for tomorrow. What do you think?

I also think Pakistan is going to win but not handily by any means. Again, it'll all come back to the batting. Their bowling is arguably the best in the tournament and their fielding is good but if they're expecting 1 or 2 guys to score decent and everyone else is out in single digits like last game, they're in for trouble. Ajmal/Hafeez is a dangerous combo on the spin and if Junaid/Irfan can contain runs early, Pakistan can put themselves in a good place. Wahab Riaz is so on and off, he's a wild card to me. Either he's going to play brilliantly with the ball like he did last game or he's going to have a bad time. There's hardly a middle ground with him. Shoaib can come in as well if Wahab struggles giving Pakistan options.

It seems like either teams are scoring big or not scoring at all in this tournament.

I think they should put Shoaib in for Wahab Riaz. He has some batting ability, and he's pretty consistent with the ball. It's scary how good their bowling lineup is even without Umar Gul, who I think is a top 5 pacer in the world right now.

New Zealand made that a lot closer than it should've been. Sri Lanka need to beat England now yes?

Well they need to, but they don't HAVE to. Even if Sri Lanka loses to England, you could have 3 teams tied at 1 wins with England being the group winners.

They'll need some big time luck if they lose the next match though.

If they don't win though then they'd have to score big against Australia and skittle them for around 150 yes?

Yea, the margin would have to be big to make up the gap in NRR. They've got the worst NRR so far.

I'm really hoping for Pakistan to advance. Ajmal is one of my favourite players.

It's too bad Ajmal got into the side in his early 30's. I can't even begin to imagine the kind of damage he and Saqlain would have done if they both entered the team in their early 20's

Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, Saqlain Musthaq, Saeed Ajmal, Mushtaq Ahmed.

Holy balls that lineup would **** every batting lineup at least once

Same.

I don't see South Africa winning today. Two big players out and Pakistan with a good bowling attack. Reckon they'll set 200 or there abouts.

181/3 in 39 overs. 250+ total coming up I'd assume.

Decent innings by Pakistan. Lots of timely wickets and containing them to a manageable score.

Misbah with the monster catch what a dive. Very impressed. Now lets hope PAK batsmen don't crap the bed.
