So typical of Pakistan's batting. Their bowlers give them a very manageable total and they can't score at all. Hope they can get going soon. Losing 2 wickets so quick and being in the 15th over already is trouble.

They won't win. Too slow. Need to be within 100 at most (80 or so is preferable ) with 10 overs left to stand a chance.

So slow at adding runs. 96 off 30. Need around 138 so it's still possible but they need to use their Powerplay. Get 50+ off the next 10 overs and they can do it.

Looks like I overestimated Pakistan's batting competence. This reminds of the Bangladesh teams batting in the early 2000's.

Can't rely on a 39 year old Misbah to score a century every game.

These pitches in England are not easy to bat on. If you check the scores of the games (aside from the 1st one), only the good technical batsmen have been able to score big runs (60+) - Amla, Sangakkara, AB (He was looking good before being run out), Bell, Misbah.

After watching a butt load of T20 games, it's refreshing to watch games where the bowlers actually get something to work with.

I'd laugh if Pakistan somehow defeats India but at this batting rate, they will not.

That's only possible if India fold for less than 150.

I don't know to be honest. A partnership was all they needed.

Dave Warner has the right attitude. Cant beat the Poms on the field? No worries, just beat them up in the pub.

I like David Warner. Joe Root probably had it coming.

This is why I picked Sri Lanka to win. No matter the total, they can bat it.

Just so fun to watch. They're so comfortable in the crease. You set them a total; "Beat that"

"Okay".

Thought you'd be more upset that England lost?

2.01pm In fact, I have got it now. The game will start at 2.30pm, and will be 31 overs a side. Powerplay blocks are six and three overs. One bowler can bowl seven, rest allowed to bowl a maximum of six

Regarding SA vs WI.

I've been out of the loop for a while because of the upcoming midterm week (4 in 5 days ).

Just saw the score of the England vs Sri Lanka game. Gonna have to catch the highlights for that after the exams are over. Gotta hand it to Sangakkara, the guy is an absolute beast.

True about the songs.


I'm hoping Ashes is postponed until say 2025. By then we should have a good team again.
