Pakistan should fight at least before laying over. If they can get a break through in the Aus batting and hold on to the catches you never know.

David vs Golaith. They lost 12 in a row now against Australia? Gul would have been a weapon for Pak.

al-Sagar
May 14, 2010, 10:06 AM
Australia's bowlers have taken 47 of a possible 50 wickets in the tournament so far and the side has run-out the remaining three

* Shaun Tait has conceded less than five runs per over through the tournament

* In Salman Butt and Saeed Ajmal, Pakistan have the tournament's third highest run-scorer and wicket-taker respectively

* Pakistan is the only team to make the semi-finals of all ICC events since the 2007 World Cup

al-Sagar
May 14, 2010, 10:08 AM
It rained earlier. They had some covers on which are coming off now. Not sure whether there is any delay in the start time. There shouldn't be any reduction in overs, though.

Tigers_eye
May 14, 2010, 10:11 AM
That rain plays in favor of Australian fast bowlers!! Bad start already for Pakistan.

Nadim
May 14, 2010, 10:41 AM

Nadim
May 14, 2010, 10:42 AM
Both team unchanged

al-Sagar

Nadim
May 14, 2010, 10:56 AM

Tigers_eye
May 14, 2010, 11:04 AM
Geez!! Nannes getting a maiden already!!! Baundale gets 100+ points to start the match.

No Baundale has him as TP.

Ajfar
May 14, 2010, 11:07 AM
40 but that would help the econ as well.

oh, ok. got it.

I have a soft spot for Johnson. Because during the last T20 worldcup one time he helped me get to number 1 from like number 6 or 7. but i lost my position the next day. I'm hoping he'll do some magic for me today.

Nadim
May 14, 2010, 11:08 AM
3-0/2...can they score 100?

Nadim
May 14, 2010, 11:09 AM

For the tournament sake I hope Watson scores a duck and gets hammered.

al-Sagar
May 14, 2010, 11:26 AM
both watson and johnson has lost some pace

Tigers_eye
May 14, 2010, 11:27 AM
Anything 150+ would be difficult for Aussies to chase.

Tigers_eye
May 14, 2010, 11:28 AM
both watson and johnson has lost some pace
I think it is intensional. The pitch is damp and slow.

Tigers_eye
May 14, 2010, 11:29 AM

Ajfar
May 14, 2010, 11:34 AM
Abdur Rehman will get some points for T_E bhai today. I thought about picking him or Ajmal but didn't pick any. I think it was a bad call.

Ajfar
May 14, 2010, 11:35 AM
i actually wanted to take the double risk of only picking english and aussies but later decided against it.

8 runs of the over... with only singles and doubles

Kabir
May 14, 2010, 12:00 PM
Just one thing I like about T20 is when you have overs like the following. No boundaries, but still you got 8 runs with singles and doubles.

12.6


Nannes to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, 90.9 mph, on the middle and leg line, shoveled to midwicket for a single

12.5


Nannes to Umar Akmal, 1 run, 88.7 mph, some width on offer outside off stump, Umar throws his bat at it and slices it to third man

12.4


Nannes to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, 85.2 mph, full, very full on the middle and leg, Umar leans across to take it on the full and plays a paddle scoop over short fine-leg for couple of runs

12.3


Nannes to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, 79.8 mph, length delivery on the off and middle, Afridi taps it quietly to cover point for a single .. it was a slower one and he adjusted well

12.2


Nannes to Umar Akmal, 1 run, 88.3 mph, full pitched on the middle stump line, worked through midwicket

12.1


Nannes to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, 88.4 mph, on the legs, flicked away to deep square-leg region for a single

12.1


Nannes to Shahid Afridi, 1 wide, 87.7 mph, starts his spell with a wide down the leg side. Afridi walks towards square-leg. Nannes grimaces.

simon
May 14, 2010, 12:03 PM

Before the last over:

Mikhail Hussein - cape or no cape?

After the last over:

Whaddaflutterycape!

The Australians ain't world champs for nothing. They had problems adjusting to this format, revamped the squad and a couple of years down the road they are probably the best T20 side out there. Now time to make England's halua tight.

Saeed Ajmal to MEK Hussey, SIX, Australianism prevails! What a great dramatic game this has been. Goose bumps! What a heartbreak for Pakistan. Michael Hussey has played like a dream. Whaddaplaayaaaa! He finished the game with yet another big hit. This is the Twenty20 innings of his lifetime. And what a way to finish it in style. He cleared the front foot and swung the ball over long-on. The while ball disappeared beyond the boundary. The Australian dug out erupted in joy. The Pakistani camp is stunned. U N B E L I E V A B L E. Hussey is mobbed by his team-mates. Clarke envelops him with a hug. The entire squad is out there on the ground. Take a bow Michael Hussey. Respect.





and thats all i have to say.... :)

I watched all of australias innings and gotta say what an innings by hussey!! I thought australia was done and dusted but thought they might have a chance since they are australia and pakistan is so unpredictable..gotta give full credit 2 australia..they just know how 2 win..they never lose their cool despite some setbacks..hussey is just world class..can block the good deliveries, rotate the strike with ease, and hit boundaries with ease as well..as for pakistan, I feel for them, they played a great game and just threw it away at the end..should not have bowled ajmal in the last over..but cant blame them 4 that..not having gul really hurt them..they played a great tournament still and should have their heads high..their a talented side but lack the discipline 2 finish the matches..and congratz 2 australia..gotta give them the respect..after this match I can actually say this..they are the world's best team and it is staying that way for a while!!

May 14, 2010, 02:40 PM
That's it - further proof that romanticism in this game is dead and cricket is becoming a power game through and through. That last over, Hussey middled only 1 of his boundaries. Yet with his reach he was able to plonk his feet way down the crease and swing away and rain sixes and fours. Kudos to him for his mental strength but we need to make bats less powerful.

May 14, 2010, 02:44 PM
and this reminds me, were we the only team in this tourney who kept this 'non-human Aussie run machines' somewhat under leash? (although this beast mike hussey was the one who gave us the final pedani in the last 5 overs and I believe was not out in the end as well).....

anyway.... only Australia can produce consistent players like m.hussey.... the opponents just have to catch Australia on these players' bad day....

The deserved one win the semi.. Pakistan was never the contender for semi but luck has brought them here and they played their those usual all of a sudden blustering innings but couldn't hold it cause the real champions deserves the win which they did with confidence and skill.

Hussey's innings, mindblowing.

Not sure which one i'm more happy about, watching such an amazing game of cricket or watching the stunned jaw dropping sad faces of the pakis.

Eh, i know ;)

Hussey did what Umar did to them. Simply outstanding cricket. I watched the last over...and when I saw Hussey at the crease, I knew it was possible for him to get that target.

What a player. I'm in love with this guy...no matter how gay that sounds.

Tremendous. Simply jaw dropping.

What a game that was. Never seen Oz's this emotional at the end of the game. They usually just walk out, shake hands and dance. Today was different. It was really a good game.

50 off 20. I dont see us getting there. Even it was other way around, 20 off 50, we'd blow it somehow.

This has to rank as one of the best T20 ever and also the virtual final of the tournament. I really don't see England giving Australia a hard time in the Final.

But, I just wanted to salute Hussey for playing one of the best T20 innings ever.

pakistan played two matches in this tounament which were probably two of the most nail biting matches this year.i am unhappy coz pakistan didn't make it through but happy @ the same time coz india got slaughtered in the super 8.the final should be an exciting 1,two of the most in form teams plus old rivals are competing for the trophy.

The Aussies have been simply amazing ! Hussey's innings was pure magic ..I dont agree with the poster who says it was a "Fluke Innings" or it was "slogging" .Every short of his was pure timing .I was lucky to watch such an amazing match .Pak was equally good on that day .They reminded me of their team in the '90's.

Though the Aussies deserve the cup more than any other team , I am backing the English .Its their best chance in 150+ years of history to win "something"
