Pakistan Vs India T 20 …………..More than a practice Match

Arch-rivals India and Pakistan will get an early chance to size up each other ahead of the World Twenty20 when they clash in a high-profile practice match in Colombo next Monday. The match, part of the warm-up schedule drawn up by the International Cricket Council, is the only one of 12 practice games that will be beamed live by the host broadcasters.

Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez welcomed the chance to play against India before the tournament starts on Tuesday. “It is usually a high-pressure game and good for us to experience it early,” Hafeez told reporters in Colombo on Wednesday night. India coach Duncan Fletcher said his team’s two warm-up matches — the other is against host Sri Lanka on Saturday — will be important preparations for the main event. “We have come here with the belief that we can win the World Twenty20 and it is crucial we get attuned to the conditions,” Fletcher said. “We have obviously got a good build-up. “We look forward to the two warm-up games which will give us the preparation we require for the tournament.” India and Pakistan have been drawn in separate groups for the preliminary league, but will meet in the Super Eights round in Colombo on September 30 if the seeding go to plan.

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.



Group A

Teams Mat Won Lost Tied N/R Pts Net RR For Against
Pakistan 6 5 1 0 0 10 +0.758 1312/275.1 1155/288.0

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 .

Uncertain Pakistan wins 3 in a row

Uncertain Pakistani team has won their third game against Canada.Pakistan were jolted by Canadian bowling attack and Pakistan were bowled out for just 184 against a minnow team.

But in reply Afridi was star for Pakistan once again.Some serious bowling by Pakistan to defend a small total of 184.A full tension match and some were expecting Canada to cause second upset after Ireland defeating England.England entered the tournament as one of the hot favorites but one more loss will put a big question mark whether they will be in quarter finals or not.

But for the moment Pakistan will be in quarter final for sure , there bowling figuring today were like this

Bowling O M R W Econ
Abdul Razzaq 7 2 16 1 2.28 (1w)
Umar Gul 7 1 20 1 2.85 (4w)
Shahid Afridi 10 0 23 5 2.30 (3w)
Wahab Riaz 5.5 0 23 1 3.94 (2w)

Saeed Ajmal 8 0 31 1 3.87 (3w)

Mohammad Hafeez 5 0 21 0 4.20

And here is the points table till now

Group A

Teams Mat Won Lost Tied N/R Pts Net RR For Against
Pakistan 3 3 0 0 0 6 +1.747 778/150.0 516/150.0
Sri Lanka 3 2 1 0 0 4 +2.663 744/118.4 541/150.0

Pakistan quites the Critics

beast image

What a match that was, between Pakistan and Srilanka .The most interesting match till now in cricket world cup 2011.Great victory by Pakistan defeating one of the favorites by 11 runs ,two in a row.

By this thrilling contest Pakistani cricket team has shown the Critics that they are underrated .Pakistan team is not dark horses.A collective team performance by Pakistan.Awesome bowling by Captain Afridi once again ,very very impressive Shoaib Akthar , Younis and Misbah great batting.

Bowling O M R W Econ
View wickets Shoaib Akhtar 10 0 42 2 4.20
Abdul Razzaq 5 1 23 0 4.60
View wicket Umar Gul 9 0 60 1 6.66 (1nb, 2w)
View wicket Mohammad Hafeez 6 0 33 1 5.50 (2w)
View wickets Shahid Afridi 10 0 34 4 3.40 (1w)
View wicket Abdur Rehman 10 1 63 1 6.30 (1nb, 3w)

But there were also flaws in Pakistan’s performance.Poor wicket keeping by Kamran Akmal , worst bowling ever by Umar Gul ,bad fielding and very low score in batting power play only 36 runs.In next game Wahab Riaz should be used instead of  Umar Gul.
