Never supported them and never will, but the way they've played, especially the Semi Final against South Africa, they deserved to win this tournament as much as the Lankans did.

A good thing happened for their team and their country.

i wouldn't say SL were the better team...the way i see it, SA were the best team in the tourney, they just choked like they always do in the semis...

umar gul is something else...and SL's triple M attack can't combine to do what he does. and of course "beast" actually hit consecutive 50s to help out.

garbage cricket crowns its 2nd successive asian champion.

Sri Lanka were the best side in the tournament.
If we compare performances against Test sides:

Sri Lanka beat Australia, West Indies (twice), Pakistan, New Zealand
South Africa beat India, West Indies, England, New Zealand
Pakistan beat Sri Lanka, South Africa, New Zealand

However Pakistan played well when it mattered and convincingly beat South Africa and Sri Lanka, so they are deserved winners, but are not necessarily, the best side.

Big congratz to Pakistan!

Afridi has finally come of age...he was superb with his bowling, batting, fielding and body language. The 17 year old fast bowler is to watch out for like ou Rubel. Ajmal and Gul was superb too throughout the tourney. Younis showed class and good leadreship skills. So, all in all, they are the worthy winners.

SL were superb also, particularly, Dilshan. Malinga, Angelo had a very good tournament. Congrats to them too.

I wanted Sri Lankans to win, not because I love their style of cricket, but the whole team was saved by a miracle not long ago. Saying that, Pakistan deserves the win, and they still remain the most unpredictable cricket nation. I am not fond of the team or that nation, but cricket needs Pakistan.

As a cricket fan, it was a pleasure to watch Gul, Afridi and the youngster Amir bowl. Afridi's responsible batting was also good to see. If he continues to bat like that, Pakistan will continue benefit from his services.

Congratulations to Pakistan, T20I World Champions ... :applause: :applause: :applause:

Congratulating someone for being champion is ok, that's what I did. That doesn't mean that I forgot their run in the tournament. Please Get over worshipping names.

They were dragging their feet in the tournament, with all the disputeable 'Bests'. Probably I am not as masmarised as you are. Neither I'm so die hard supporter of Pak team as you are. So get your admirations right, that's enough I guess.

Thats How Nearly ALL World Cups Are won, It's very rare to see any team dominant from beginning to end.

TBH I am still not impressed. With those many chances, law of averages catches up. Give those many chances to any batsman and he would fire once or twice.

But having said that, one has to admire the way he led his team to a world cup. The Pakistani cricket fans needed this so badly. The game was gonna die there without some achievement.

Is that so? May be a few times but not all for sure.

Aus & WI victories of WC weren't like that. Srilanka's victory wasn't like that. Last Indian T20 wasn't like that. It was only Pakistan who did it both times like that I guess & Ind in 83, even Indian one isn't like this one, 175 of Kapil dev was an outstanding knock played to lift their momentum. Anyway, I am not discrediting them for the win. But I'm not impressed with the champs.

TBH moja pelam na. It wasn't not about losing a match or two, it was how the team fared. Strugling for survival to be honest isn't something I can associate with the champs. Well, luck favoured them at the end.

patriot
June 24, 2009, 05:03 AM
Last Indian T20 wasn't like that.

Not Really ,

India 141/9 (20/20 ov); Pakistan 141/7 (20/20 ov)
Match tied (India won the bowl-out)

New Zealand 190 (20/20 ov); India 180/9 (20/20 ov)
New Zealand won by 10 runs

India 157/5 (20/20 ov); Pakistan 152 (19.3/20 ov)
India won by 5 runs

Comparing this with Pakistan's 2009 T20 World cup results :

Pakistan ONLY got beaten by England in the Qualifiers and Sri Lanka in the Super 8's . The rest of the matches were easy rides . Yes easy rides if you have a look at the scorecards .

The final in 2007 was a VERY CLOSE contest and went down to the wire to decide the champions .In 2009 the champions were already decided after Sri Lanka managed only 138.

It's kinda funny looking at some of the posts in this thread in a sports forum. Just goes to show how many people can't ignore politics even when talking sports.

In fact, some of you are acting quite arogantly. All that this does is it brings you down to the level of the ones who messed up in '71 (namely, the pakistanis). It's your choice - either applaud the winner now and think about politics later on, or bring yourself down to a level where you lose your own dignity of being a sane person.

Kabir
June 24, 2009, 08:32 AM
Btw, as for winning the tournament - we all know who made the difference in the team. It's Afridi and Gul who won them the cup. T20 can be a one-man-show.

Another thing is, Pak didn't lose more than 2 games in the tournament because if they did, they wouldn't have been in the finals, or be the winners. Max game you could've lost in qualifiers was 1. Same for the Super 8s.

That your vocab is rich with filty words doesnt surprise me in the least. Its only a true reflexion of the mind and the inner-self.

You truely are an impossible soul. In the intial post you were just insuniating things. You have now audaciously deprived me of my birthright -my nationality- by casting your injudicious Fatwa that I might be a Pakistani. Now either you're an ignorant bugger or pretending to be one...take your pick! You have been on this forum long enough to know who is a Bangladeshi and who is not. But I will not hold this against you severely as I am really not that fussed about nationality or "identity"- I know who I am. This might be tantamount to blashphemy to ultra-nationalists or ultra-Bangladeshis...O boy! there are a few of those in this forum...but, not to me, senor. You see, I dont believe in borders or Nation States. So, I could be a Pakistani or a Togolese.

Anyway, back to topic, if you really hate Pak team then why bother making a comment on a congratulatory thread, at all! Isnt it very unbecoming and ungracious?! Are you not familiar at all with the famous maxim "If you have nothing good to say then remain quite"?!

Dear Rifat
As much as I admire your zeal, in reality it is not a good line up after all things about past bookie connections, intra-player rivalry and cricket politics inside PCB and the team have been flashed out.
Amir Sohail will definitely try to get out on the first ball. If some special person does not approach both the W's one of them will definitely suck against the opponent. Moin Khan will act like he is holding the fort while wasting balls giving away too many dots after the initial runs were made quickly and would make easy stumpings look difficult and miss. For some bowlers he would dive his heart out to save every single run behind the stumps while other cases there will be a whole bunch of 5 wides which should not be.

I had a link long back in this section in a thread on Pakistani players confessing to their court. You may google to find that out.

But yes if only sportsmanship is concerned its a good team. I would rather take Miandad over Misbah as we already have Akram, Afridi and Abdur as allrounders.

So for a strong middle order Younis-Yousuf-Miandad can be like a nightmare even if a team made of Murali, McGrath, Pollok, Walsh, Ambrose, Kumble, Malinga, Van Der Merwe, Sidebottom, Warne, Taibu(only for being a WK-bowler of recent time) is only told to play the Pak innings.

Are you serious? This guy is like our SN. You may take him only if you are playing minnows.

Not really

He scored runs against most teams and scored them at a very good rate as well
Ijaz was also one of the finest fielders of his time.

My all time T20 XI for Pakistan

1- Saeed Anwar
2- Shahid Afridi
3- Ijaz
4- M Yousuf
5- Imran Khan
6- Moin Khan
7- A Razzaq
8- Wasim Akram
9- Saqlain
10- Waqar
11- Gul

12th man: Wasim Raja

I cant imagine a team without big Inzi .Agreed Ijaz is butcher on his day and a very good fielder but Inzi is great finisher and the teams batting can revolve around him.

Also I would put Afridi down the order (or leave him out).The team looks great on bowling but a tad weak in batting.Except Anwar,Ijaz/Inzamam and Yosuf all the others are a suspsect in batting (ofcourse Imran and Razzak can bat and bat well..but I rather have solid batsmen).I'd leave out Afridi and get in Miandad in .

1- Saeed Anwar
2- Sohail ( or any other proper opener)
3- M Yousuf (Ijaz for ODI's)
4- Inzamam
5. Miandad
6- Imran Khan
7- Moin Khan
8- A Razzaq ( Afridi for Tests.)
9- Wasim Akram
10- Saqlain
11- Waqar

Reserves
12- Ijaz/Afridi/Razzaq

Good points Bharat

I guess Zaheer Abbass and Majid Khan have to be considered as well

Almost impossible to come up with a perfect team since none of the greats played T20 cricket.

That your vocab is rich with filty words doesnt surprise me in the least. Its only a true reflexion of the mind and the inner-self.

Ya, you are showing your inner self again and again through your language. One who uses it displays the inner self. Everyone knows how to kill, but one who does is the bad element, a killer. Have you got some problem of understanding? either English or Logic... it can happen. Don't worry, I suggest you Get your ALU checked by some psycho.. ASAP.

You truely are an impossible soul. In the intial post you were just insuniating things. You have now audaciously deprived me of my birthright -my nationality- by casting your injudicious Fatwa that I might be a Pakistani. Now either you're an ignorant bugger or pretending to be one...take your pick! You have been on this forum long enough to know who is a Bangladeshi and who is not. But I will not hold this against you severely as I am really not that fussed about nationality or "identity"- I know who I am. This might be tantamount to blashphemy to ultra-nationalists or ultra-Bangladeshis...O boy! there are a few of those in this forum...but, not to me, senor. You see, I dont believe in borders or Nation States. So, I could be a Pakistani or a Togolese.

'You may be' and 'you are' makes some difference in meaning, wish you knew that. and I truely care s____t about the wisdom of your nationality !!! It's funny, what an expectation !! WOW. Now I understand; you are suffereing from serious identity problem.

Sorry Lilofftopic: I met a Razakar a couple of years back. Doesn't want to say I'm BDeshi, Can't say Paki; so he preaches similar global citizen theory. Unfortunately he still needs visa /PP everywere else except BD, but still can't feel proud to be a Bangladeshi, his past is haunting him. people have identity problems for many reasons; this is just one. Someone coming from like 'Char cookri-Mookri' & he being the only educated person of the genetic family tree; they could feel immensely proud of their achievement due to the fact, but when they want to show off (Futano :)); they land up into serious identity crisis. Could be many more situation ... you can find out your own.

Anyway, back to topic, if you really hate Pak team then why bother making a comment on a congratulatory thread, at all! Isnt it very unbecoming and ungracious?! Are you not familiar at all with the famous maxim "If you have nothing good to say then remain quite"?!

I am sure that I haven't ever said that 'I hate Pak'. Don't put words in my mouth to suit your arguments. I understand your problem of understanding language.

You should at least follow what you preach !! (Any way it's not so famous maxim, but important & very basic, ever heard that buddy??) Yelling & using abusive language isn't something your famous maxim permits.

You couldn't have patience could you? That's quiet abnormal with some -- . :)

Note: I don't like and I'm not a fan of Pak Team. You originally reacted to this in a way, as if you were a Pakistani; Try a suitable neutral reaction if you are a Bangladeshi & neutral cricket fan. :)
