View Full Version : our tail-enders

In the second practice match: from 81/8 to 166 all out, which suggests that the last two wkts did 85 or so runs. I guess, one of the batsmen was Pilot. Was it again Tapash who gave support to Pilot?
Looks like our tail is stronger than our top orders.

Our tail-enders are finest in the world. I would like to see Masud up the order.

Our tail-enders are nothing amazing. Its just that our top order sucks!

In addition to what Sham said, our bowlers suck too, because how come our bowlers can't get a tail ender out for even under 50 runs?

Our bowlers can't get tail enders out because they can't do good reverse swing and yorkers. These two are required to get tail enders out quickly. Otherwise you have to face the wrath of sloggers.

Zimbabwe has better tail enders than us - Zimbabwe could get past a respectable score of 150 runs (168 all out to be exact) , when they were 38 for the loss of 4 wickets after 15 overs, and could reach the 100 run mark after 30 overs, with their wicket keeper batsman - Taibu scored a fifty.

Oh, and they could bat until the 50th over (49.1 overs) even after losing the 9th wicket in the 40th over (or may be even earlier - didn't follow the game closely).

And that (of Zimbabwe achieving such a feat) was against Pakistani bowling attack consisting of Mohammad Sami - the uttorsuri of Waqar Younis/Wasim Akram, Abdur Razzaq, Shoaib Malik - the clone bowling action and style, type of Saqlain Mushtaq - uttorsuri of Saqlain Mushtaq, Danish Kaneria - TRAASH for Bangladeshi batsman, Mohammad Hafiz, and a couple of other emerging youngsters.
