Looks like Aussies are not that good at playing our spinners. Even in the tests, Rafiq bowled really good. Now in ODI, Razzak and raifq are having their way against them.

SHould we include, Enamul or Alok for the rest two ODIs??

I guess thats not a bad idea. But again didnt they slog murali for 100 or so? Or was that SA?

Yes they can do that on the hard pitches in AUS, SA but not on the subcontinent pitch.

Exactly!! the pitches in sub continent not like those artifical hard ones in AUS or ENG. These pitches are made for spinners.

And more importantly, Rafiq is playing his best this series. THe rest of the spinners as well.

And, we should bring back Shahadat. Russell is too rusty. He just not got hit, he practically cost us the game by dropping Gilly on 38.

Rafiq is the best player we ever had produced, no emotions here, this guy gives more than 100% every time he is out there in the middle, I wish only our other players have learned these traits from him.

And, we should bring back Shahadat. Russell is too rusty. He just not got hit, he practically cost us the game by dropping Gilly on 38.

Yeah that was really an expensive miss. That certainly has cost us the match. The only difference between the two teams was that blasted innings from Gilchrist. But hats off to our spinners, they have made a real contest out of that paltry total. Our batsmen need to learn, and they should do that quickly.

Aussies aren't very good against SLA in ODIs. Vettori has very good record against them.

Yeah, drop one of the pacer and bring rana in team and open the innings bowling by one spinner at one end.

By the way, did not Gillespie prove in test how aussiees handle the spin?

Never liked Rana's Bowling or Batting .... he is too mediocre in both. If we want another specialist spinner, we should Pick Enamul Jr. (Is he fit now??). With 3 specialist spinners working, the Aussies will be in real trouble.

I don't mind their batsmen scoring at a strike rate of 60-70 (certainly not 165+), anything less than 230 if they bat first or in excess of 250 if we bat first is sufficient to make aussies struggle on a low and slow track on any day. Make sure the pitches are slow we can even win remaining two matches of the series.
