Taylor Bunged Pakistan’s Progress……Kiwis Mortified Green Shirts March 10, 2011

ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

Pool (A) Match 24:

Pakistan Vs Newzealand:

Pallekelle (08/03/2011):

How to approach this politely? Ian Chappell was pretty polite. “If his batting was as good as Don Bradman’s,” he said on air, “he couldn’t score enough runs to make up for what he costs them with his keeping.

Afridi boys finally found themselves in hot water against a less but proficient opponents, having decided to bat first the kiwis lost McCullum early whose stumps was dislodged by mighty Rawalpindi Express, Jamie how batted for some time ,tried to settle his nerves, but he was unable to find rhythm  after 29 balls he was ruled out lbw to a good delivery off Umar Gul. The biggest climax of the match occurred in 14th over of Shoaib, when he delivers a wicket taking delivery to Taylor, Shoaib has Ross pushing at a one that held its line, and the healthy edge goes ever so slowly to Kamran who is in good position to take it, gets gloves on it, and clangs it, Shoaib can’t do anything about it, he looks hysterical, Taylor and Guptill added some 50 odds for the third wicket, Martin Guptill contributed 57 to scorecard providing Newzealand a solid pedestal. Some little but consolidated contributions from Styris 29 and Nathan McCullum 19 helped Newzealand’s cause and raises its total to 210/6 in 46 overs. This is the time when every one had expected Newzealand to post a maximum of 250 total at this venue but fortune favors the brave, that’s what assisted Ross Taylor with his outstanding blows he had dispatched the bowlers particularly Razzaq and Akhtar in all corners of the ground ,it was worth watching, a total controlled colossal hitting with all hits going way behind the boundary ,biggest six of the tournament was also hit by Taylor ,Jacob Oram also chipped in with 3 sixes adding 25 to his name ,Newzealand ended their innings at 302/7 in 50 overs ,Pakistani bowlers conceded 92 runs in last fours overs which became a world record of giving maximum runs in last 4 overs of the innings by any team in an ODI.Umar Gul was the pick of the bowlers with 3/32 in his complete 10 overs. Pakistan have to chase their highest ever total to win a world cup match ,the openers from which many have expected to perform well in WC 11’ haven’t come up to expectations yet & they have revived their same performance ,Pakistan started her innings in a clumsy manner ,at one stage they were 23/4 in just 8 overs .Misbah and Umar Akmal tried to stabilize the innings ,their efforts ended in vain ,some smart hits from Afridi showed Pakistan might change the scenario through skipper’s Century but he hesitated to stay on the wicket ,Newzealand lost vettori early in Pakistan innings but Pakistan didn’t materialize this tragedy ,Razzaq was the only 50 plus scorer ,he contributed 62 while Umar Akmal 38 and Umar Gul 34* were the other dominant scorers. Newzealand winded up the proceedings in 42th over ,Pakistan ended up with 192 all out ,Tim southee with 3/25 in 8 overs was the pick of the bowlers while Ross Taylor was acknowledged Man of the Match Award for his Match-Winning innings of 131 with 7 sixes and 8 fours. Pakistan had again paid for Kamran Akmal’s blunder.

PAKISTAN CLINCHES VICTORY FROM THE JAWS OF DEFEAT ….SKIPPER LEADS FROM FRONT March 3, 2011

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.
