Proud Australian Streak ended by Pakistan,History recalled

Finally the history recalled,Pakistan have ended the australian winning streak in cricket world cup since 1999 when they were last defeated by Pakistan.

Extremely great bowling performance by Pakistan.Umar Gul sensational ,Abdul Razzaq in great touch and every other contributed to make this happen in favour of Pakistan.Pakistan were considered under dogs before world cup and now they have topped their group with 10 points.

Three matches more to win the world cup , if they bowl like this the cup is there for sure.

Finally, after 34 games without defeat in the World Cup, Australia have been toppled. Intriguingly this sets up a likely clash between Australia and India in the quarters, while Pakistan will probably play West Indies.


Ill mannered Ausies continued to be ill mannered .

Favorites not up to the expectations

Cricket World cup 2011 favorites are not up to the expectations.As the performance of India against Bangladesh with the ball ,Australia with bat against Zimbabwe and today England‘s bowling against Netherlands .Australia is too cautious in their batting as early loss of two wickets can set them on the back foot.Aussies will be really missing their anchor Michael Hussey(Mr cricket).
Indian bowling attack is not of the class if someone calls them as favorite of world cup.England was also suffering in this department today and set 292 runs to win.

Well Srilanka is in great touch both with the ball and the bat and have shown their class against Canada.
Though Pakistan is not among the favorites by cricket experts , let us see how they start their campaign as they are my favorites.
