First test has already begun. pakistan is batting and made 44 without loss. pakistan is playing without mohammed yousuf in this test

January 11, 2007, 05:14 AM
Sovik you beat me by three minutes!!!

January 11, 2007, 04:52 PM
a win is a win.

January 12, 2007, 06:31 AM
Even a good start by Pakistani openers and two half centuries in the middle order failed to pose a threat to South African bowlers, as Makhaya Ntini is continuing his super form in test cricket by taking a 5 wicket haul against Pakistan.

January 12, 2007, 03:34 PM
from cricinfo commentary

Pakistan all out for 313, having at one stage been handily placed on 183 for 2. A bunch of happy hookers have let South Africa off the hook, but credit to Makhaya Ntini, who picked up the fine figures of 5 for 83.

January 12, 2007, 04:43 PM
SA 254/4 at stumps. With SA batting last...I'd still say anybody's game..

January 12, 2007, 10:25 PM
south africa needs atleast a lead of 100 runs. it will be tough to face mohammad asif in 4th and 5th day

January 13, 2007, 08:15 AM
south africa got the lead over 100 runs and now its the bowlers turn to get pakistan out within 250

January 14, 2007, 09:11 AM
The Pakistani tail enders turned it on! 296/9 now and a lead of 192 now....interesting!

January 14, 2007, 09:19 AM
Pakistan 302 all out. SA should be able to get 199 but u never know...Good last innings on prospect...

January 14, 2007, 11:04 AM
south africa needs 130 runs and they have 8 wickets in hand

January 14, 2007, 03:40 PM
I am glad that Pakistan is going to lose comprehensively!

January 14, 2007, 10:00 PM
1st Innings Score has Made a Huge Difference..............Don't Know Pakistan can Show some Extra Ordinary Game Play or Not. Otherwise It is sure to be 1-0 for SA after the First Test.

Friday, 19 January 2007
SA is getting Shoaib Akhter & Kaneria treatment, in 37 overs they are 113/7

Is any one watching the match ? What is the pitch like ?

Hafeez was dropped in the first over. Now Ntini has got Farhat. Pakistan 0 for 1.

January 19, 2007, 09:53 AM
79/4 45 behind the 1st innings total of SA. They were 19/3 at one stage. Yousuf gone. Another 25 overs to go.

January 19, 2007, 02:43 PM
16 wickets in 1st day. this match will be over in 3 days.

January 19, 2007, 04:36 PM

January 20, 2007, 03:09 AM
40 overs, all out by 124 runs. I understand this doesn't happen consistantly in their case, but really, anything's really possible in cricket. Loose shots from SA batsmen caused this...lets just see how Pakistan replies!

January 20, 2007, 03:13 AM
What a shame...at the end of first day, Pakistan scored 136 losing 6 wickets. The only good thing is, Inzamam's yet to bat.

January 20, 2007, 03:50 AM
Thanx Carte Blanche ! Ur REAL buddy !

January 20, 2007, 03:55 AM
Pakistan 148/6 ..... Lead by 24 runs so far.

January 20, 2007, 05:14 AM
from cricinfo
When Inzy took that single off the last ball, he ran across, his eyes following the ball, and Pollock was also indulging in some ball-watching and the two collide against each other. Obviously, it is Pollock who goes down to the ground.

January 20, 2007, 05:18 AM
the series will be very interesting. looks like pakistan is building a good lead their lead is now over 80. and it will be hard for south africa to save the match

January 20, 2007, 05:20 AM
Pakistan 212/9....A lead of 88 now...Once again Inzy at his brilliant best under immense pressure.

January 20, 2007, 05:33 AM
Pakistan 223/9 at lunch....a lead of 99....Inzy 62 not out.

January 20, 2007, 06:58 AM
Pakistan 265 all out....A lead of 141....Inzamam 92 not out.....Game on !

January 20, 2007, 10:28 PM
What Happened to SA Batting Line up............They Cannot Do Well in Their Home Soil.....................What Kind of Wicket is This? 16 Wickets Had Fall on the 1st Day. but In 2nd Day was Little Batting Freaindly.

January 21, 2007, 06:00 AM
south africa got a lead of 50 runs but they still need 250+ more to win this game

January 21, 2007, 12:57 PM
Pakistan need 191 to win and at the end of the day is 8/0....

January 21, 2007, 01:23 PM
Pak should be able to do that easily...unless there's a situation like the first day.

January 21, 2007, 10:27 PM
Good Luck to Pakistani Batsmen and South African Bowlers.......................

January 22, 2007, 07:31 AM
Attack is the best form of defence :)

Pakistan recovered well and now slightly ahead.


Younis - 49*
Kamran - 25*

January 22, 2007, 08:17 AM
Finally Pakistan made it.

A 5 wicket win squares the series 1-1.

Final score

South Africa 124 & 331
Pakistan 265 & 191/5 (57.3 ov)

Younis 67*
Kamran 57*

Kamran defnitely kept those drop catches in mind while batting ;)

January 22, 2007, 04:53 PM
south africa should replace devilliers

January 22, 2007, 09:50 PM
South African Test Team is Not That Good.......................They Lost to Pakistan. But Pakistan Played Very Well.............................It is Also very good That The Series Will be an Interesting One.

Good Luck Pakistan and South Africa for The Third Test.

well today it seems like South Africa have the edge unless asif screws them up tomorrow morning.

January 26, 2007, 06:50 PM
south africa should not have rested pollock.

January 27, 2007, 08:15 PM
its a fifty fifty chance now. lets see who can pull the rope.

January 27, 2007, 09:54 PM
This Test is Going to Finish within 3 Days.................Strange....................Wh at Kind of Wicket is This? According to Wicket, Both the Teams has 50-50 Chances to Win. SA Batters have to Prove their Temperment and Pakistan Bowlers have to Prove their Attacking Capability According to Situation.

Well, Good Luck to South Africa Batters and Pakistan Bowlers.

January 28, 2007, 03:40 AM
Smith falls to Asif before SAF scored any runs today. 36/3. Pakistan suddenly on top.

January 28, 2007, 08:57 AM
all over for pakistan. SA winning by 5 wickets.

well south africa finally won the series. great innings by kalis and prince. although kalis had to return to the pavillion just before winning but prince was there.

South Africa need to improve their Batting. They were Struggling in their home soil aginst Pakistani Bowling Attack for Chasing 160 only. If Shoib was There or Pakistan has got one or two high class bowlers, I think It would be tough for them to win. Condition also Played a Vital Role. But it was suposed to be problem for Pakistani batting Line-Up. SA also strugle there. So............................

Finally Congratulation to South Africa for Winning the Series and Well-Done to Pakistan. They Really Played Very Well and The Series was a Good and Interesting one. Congrtulation to JH Kallis for being Judged as Man of The Series.

Now The time to Enjoy the ODI Series. I think SA One Day Side is Much Better than Their Test Squad. Pakistani ODI Squad are also Good. If both of the Team Get their Best Eleven, I Think It will be an Interesting Series.

Good Luck to Both South Africa and Pakistan for ODI Series.

Its true that after loosing Hansi Cronje, Allan Donalk, Jonty Rhodes SA team was never able to get back to that kind of form anymore. They will be in bigger trouble after Kalis and Pollock leaves. Smith is a good player, but he lacks consistency.

They are getting very close to Australia in the ODI Championships and I think they are the favourites for the next world cup.

What type of pitch SA have?
How come everyone scores over 300 there??

On another note, are the bowling has gone down the tubes??? Aus, NZ, Ind, WI, Pak, SA, SL all are scoring 300+ regularly. That is 6+ in an over. Or this is the after effect of Twenty/20???

February 7, 2007, 12:54 PM
Let's see how SA tackle 351 today.

February 7, 2007, 01:20 PM
Free live audio. easy chance of a runout is spilled out by the pakis. 111/3. Asif finished his overs already.

February 7, 2007, 01:30 PM
They are funniest commentators I have ever heard. lol
Lights are out play is stopped for now. I think one of the commentator is a Pakistani Mr. Nair. He is making fun of Durban for not having the lights.

February 7, 2007, 02:00 PM
If this is a sabbotage then I would not have words to discribe the SA Cricket.There were 2 balls left (19.4 overs had gone) before a result could be posted if the power don't come back.2 blocks away there is power. In the streets there is power everywhere around the stadium there is power yet the entire stadium is dark. lol. Lets see what happens. But I am sure it would not be a quick fix since SA is on the losing side. 113/4 in 19.4 overs chasing 350 with prince 2* and Boucher 0*.

February 7, 2007, 05:15 PM
A better series than I thought........Pakistan crushed SA by 141 runs! Series Leveled

This is a Good Question. In Recent Time South African Wicket Allow Batters to Score 400+ Three Times (Aus-SA and Zim-SA). In This Series Both of The Game Had 350+ Score. Are They Changing Wicket? Not Only SA, Wicket is Changing Some Other Places also. Perth (Australia) has Started to Help Spinners. What is Going On. May be due to Change of Overall Condition.

Why Younis Khan was Judged MOM? Shahid Afridi Score 77 of 35 Only and Picked up 3 Wickets of 25 Only. But He wasn't Judge MOM. Younis Khan Scored 93 of 98. It was a Good Innings but I don't Think He should be Judged MOM.

Anyway, Good Luck to SA and Pak for Next Match.

Third match was going pretty even untill the rain stopped the match. This series is gonna be a belter. 3 matches have gone by and its hard to nominate, which team is better. Altough i have to admit that being at home the SA are a bit more favorable but still its too close to call.

February 11, 2007, 05:10 AM
pakistan is still in trouble. they are scoring under 3 runs per over. superb first spell by pollock

February 11, 2007, 10:17 AM
What a punch in the butt of the Pakistanis. 10 wicket win within 14 overs and hitting a 6 to win the match when scores are level!

This is simple demolition. Now, can Pakistan come back?

Probably yes :)

February 11, 2007, 06:12 PM
If South Africa win the last odi of this series and Australia lose 2-1 their next series in New Zealand then South Africa will be the new number 1 in the odi Championship!
Check it with the icc predictor:

February 12, 2007, 12:47 PM
south africa is safe now. they can't loose this series

February 14, 2007, 08:55 AM
pollock destroying pakistan. 5 wickets for him

February 14, 2007, 02:04 PM
Pollock ends on 10-3-21-5 as Pakistan collapse for 153.
Then Smith goes out first ball to Asif, but deVilliers and Kallis both make 71* and it's an easy 9-wicket win for South Africa on 28.2 overs!

Their rating in odi championshps is now 128, closely chasing Australia on 130.

February 14, 2007, 05:29 PM
All Australia has to do is win against NZ to remain at the top.

I am enjoying Pakistan's inconsistancy. Who knows we may face each other in second round. But this can however, boost Pakistan in to another level and eventually winding up in the finals.

I remember, India getting hit hard at NZ right before the last WC and got their acts together and had a good run at the WC. Same thing can happen to Pakistan but I doubt it will.

February 14, 2007, 05:51 PM
south africa had a great summer of cricket. they are the favourite like always and who know this time they might not chock

February 15, 2007, 02:46 AM
At Last South Africa Won the Series. Well Done SA. They are Becoming a Real Opponant for Australia in One Day International. In LG-ICC ODI Ranking They almost touch Aus. Hope SA can Continue this Form in WC too. It will be a Great One.

Good Luck to Both of The Team.

All Australia has to do is win against NZ to remain at the top.

...which may not be that easy, as they go there without Ponting and Gilchrist, and Symonds and Lee are both injured. I wouldn't be much surprised if NZ win the series!
