ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

Pool (A) Match 17:

Pakistan Vs Canada

Colombo 03/03/2011:

When you are steaming through your way & you are stuck in some weird situation, in an odd game against lesser opponents, what you call it?? Lesser Side Played Well, our team didn’t work out on the plan or simply it was not your day? Same happened with fate of Pakistan today in an exciting game of cricket, who was going through some terrific World cup match results but suddenly Canadian attack surprised their batting line-up & only 2 little cameo’s were the only  prominent figures of Scorecard ,After winning the toss ,Afridi decided to bat first on a good wicket .Chouhan ,Osinde ,Gordon  & Rizwan Cheema bowled upright spells & limited Pakistani batting Card  under 4 runs per over when Kamran Akmal departed ,a ghastly total of 67 was on the board with 4 batsman’s back in the hut. At this stage Misbah Ul Haq the leading run scorer for Pakistan in WC 11’ alongside with Umar Akmal hang about for some time in the crease which was adequate for Umar Akmal to open his arms & hit the first six of the match, this 73 run partnership has stabilizes the innings with a little pinch hitting from skipper Afridi as expected was the only glamour exhibited in batting by Pakistan today.  Pakistan has to preserve a modest 184 run total, Canada started things very inaudibly .In the 4th Over on Umar Gul’s delivery after a laud appeal for LBW, after Harper has turned the decision down Pakistan was compelled to take their first UDRS & the decision goes in Pakistan’s favor, same happened when afridi’s ball hit baqai on middle stump, it looks plumb but turned down again by Harper once again UDRS assisted in turning it Pakistan’s way. In 15th over when Canada was 44/3 it sound as if Pakistan will windup the proceedings but Surkari & Hansra added a fifty joint venture to their tally. When Canada reached 96/3 in 31 overs, Pressure started to built on Pakistani fieldsman & bowlers, a big six was hit by Surkari when he came down the track to Hafeez over the head of Deep Long off, finally the breakthrough the most awaited one for Pakistan’s Point of view was provided by Saeed Ajmal of a superb delivery pitched on the middle & leg, again the UDRS was exploited by Pakistan as originally Umpire favors the batsman. Surkari was ruled out lbw by Ajmal for 27 was the game’s turning point ,Afridi brought himself back into the attach & this was the time Pakistani’s are praying for he bowled a superb second spell  in which he delivered 4 overs for just 9 runs & grabbed 4 important wickets ,a chance of Hat-trick was also created but he didn’t cope with it ,Pakistan restricted the Canadians to 138 runs ,some slangs  were also exchanged between Umar Gul ,Ahmed Shahzad & balaji Rao late in the innings which were a part of the game ,a spectacular effort put up by Canada & certainly its an indication for Pakistan to learn from their mistakes ,they have 3 games to conduct experiments before it will be a Do or Die situation arises in quarter Final. Afridi with 5/23 was the pick of the bowlers & rightly so, was acknowledged with Man of the Match award.
