What a chase by Pakistan!!! reminds me of 92 worldcup ..Indeed itz one of the most unpredictable, amazing and scintilating team...i wish Bd plays this type of cricket one day in near future....and to prepare for that ...our Under 19 team(!) should stay in Pakistan and play more trophy matches to get hold of that type of cricket spirit of Pak crickets

Pakistan played really well but ya I think We don't have to follow anyone. If we have the spirit to do better and learn, we will do it. We just need sometime, good management, good coaching, more grounds, more cricket academies and no politics in cricket; then you'll see that we gonna be named in the tops of cricket. And playing our U-19s in Pakistan is not a bad idea to achieve our goals.

Sami is definite the successor of the Two W's. With Akthar, he can destroy any batting order. I wish We have a bowler like Sami in our team. Masri showed a little hope. but don't know where the fate will take this guy.
