So in the end Pak managed to get a nod from the richest cricket board after a draught of long five years. PCB will get a pat for being able to make BCCI agree for this tour when all important Eng-Ind series is underway.

The matches between sub-continental teams mostly become stale as for last many years bowling has nothing to boast about creating impacts in the match results. Many times we have seen it is all about better batting, which either ensures a mammoth total first or clinically reaches the target on board. With Tendulkar gone, it will be interesting to see how those teams approach there ODI's. For T20's they may become very exciting or from the get-go you can tell the script is written which is not just a possibility when Ind-Pak meets. In past test matches we have seen players from both countries breaking and making records after records regardless of their true form or athleticism. Any cricket spectator can recognize the ugliness so viciously exposed like triple hundreds, 10 wickets in an innings by a bowler etc. We have seen Azharuddin and Salim Malik and many other cherished popular big name cricketers at the receiving end of allegations which are well investigated to start with.

Having their frontline batsmen and bowler barred from playing due to spot fixing and lot of performances by current players, specially the wicket keeper, Pak players hopefully would be cautious enough to step into the same water again. But we hope no intervention due to some agreement among the boards about the results that will get emphasis when the game starts. Being a cricket fan from teen-hood, me like any other cricket enthusiast would like to see some competition and real cricket from both sides.

In the end, they need to keep in mind, if all goes fair and square, the strength will be properly judged and also for the betterment of cricket and it's fan base (which is not really that big compared to other sports) a good T20 and ODI series free of any external illegitimate influence would be a key pleasure. To bring back true cricket a trustworthy show is extremely required and also expected from fans who easily can reckon the current aggravation of interest on such series (this comment can be justified from the messages posted by cricinfo members).

^ I don't know about a 3-0 whitewash. I think this Pak team will be fired up. They have a thing or two to prove. India is the clear favorite here because of their ridiculous ODI batting line up but I think it will be a lot closer than 3-0.

MyRoom
December 25, 2012, 09:30 PM
I reckon we can beat this Indian team now or give them a very close game as long as they don't use their top experience players like Sehweg, Khan and Harbhajan.

ODI 11 Bangladesh and India - Tamim, Anamul, Mahmudullah, Shakib, Nasir, Rahim, Mominul/Zia, Gazi, Mortaza/Nazmul, Razzak and Rubel/Shafiul/Abul v Gambhir, Rahane, Kohli, Unmukt, Raina, Dhoni, Pathan, Ashwin, Oaja, B.Kumar/P.Kumar/Aarun, Dinda/Sharma/Yardav

Also Bangladesh may be playing this Pakistan team in January but no need to fear as they're a bunch of oldies and have not got much success left in them. Look how their young guys like Shehzad and Jamshed struggled against swing so easily and that's what our fast bowlers need to do to them. They look overrated to me plus fielding is poor so we can target that especially hitting the ball towards the big guy in the field.

"The way we played the last match, our morale is quite high … I will give credit to the bowlers and fielders. They [India] were 70 for no loss and after that we came back. Bowling has always been our strength and in the last match, even after a bad start, the comeback was outstanding. As a captain I am very pleased with that."
Mohammad Hafeez, the Pakistan captain

"The conditions here are different. The one [pitch] in Bangalore was seaming and over here, it will be slow and offer turn. There is no pressure on us."
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the India medium-pacer

December 28, 2012, 01:27 PM
If you watched the match you would know where the match turned. India just made 20 runs more which made the difference. Pakistan was well in course to reach the target but the equation turned too large when Akmal left and Afridi though promising could not use his head. Had he tried a ground boundary rather going over the top still the game was in their slot.

Ajmal over was the key when India made most runs and Yuvi made 3 sixes from 3 deliveries he faced. I wonder had he not changed the side with Dhoni from first ball single, he might have added 2 more sixes in that over.

Jadukor
December 28, 2012, 10:59 PM
Sanity prevailed in the end and the Indian version of Naeem Islam (jadeja) was eventually dropped. India should stop playing their useless part timers and pick specialist bowlers. Their bowling is already quite weak and on top of that when they pick bits and pieces players to bowl 8 expensive overs, the game is already lost.

India might continue to loose games but at least they will gain more exposure and get prepared for the future ahead. Gambhir and Sehwag are not doing any good at all."

Saeed Ajmal to Dinda, no run, doosra again, spins away from Dinda, who defends from the crease to the off side
39.4
Saeed Ajmal to Kumar, OUT, and Pakistan are two away from a famous victory, the magician Ajmal is too good for Bhuvneshwar, lbw, that drifts away and spins in catching Bhuveshwar on the crease, a bit of doubt whether that would have taken leg stump, but the umpire is satisfied
B Kumar lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the new batsman
Sreenivas: "I agree with Navneet. I reckon we can't rely on the performances being produced by the batsmen at the Ranji level. Had a glimpse at the bowling attack in Ranji cricket. It doesn't seem to be promising at all. It is too far away from the substantial standards in the international level."

Saeed Ajmal to Jadeja, OUT, length ball, Jadeja looks to thump that over mid-on, can't get it high enough, an overhead catch for Junaid at mid-on who takes a leaping catch

On the other hand, in immergence of Junaid, Irfan and (in a way) S. Malik replacing Afridi made this bowling side more stronger. And jamshed is a real stud, stabilizing the operner slot. However this PAK team is not without anyy weakness. The middle order (#3, #4, #5) is filled with wrong type of batsman, In a batting pitch, if theeir opener falls quickly, this middle order is not capable to get runs with decent RR, two of them is ok ... but three of them one after another? Its too much...that the only weakness in this team I see ..... there is no excuse scoring only 250 after getting 140 for 0 with a RR close to 6....

You hit the nail on the head. Indian selectors are giving the excuse of these players having good past records and these players winning the WC. The problem is these guys are all out of form and Kohli was bailing them out with his to form. As soon as he cools down, you see how how weak this batting lineup is. It's time to shake up this side and let the regulars know that they have to take their places seriously and not for granted.

As for Pakistan, they look a very strong side. Good pacers complimented by very good spinners make them dangerous. Batting needs to improve for sure. Jamshed has been a great find. However, it's inexcusable to have a guy like Umar Akmal riding the bench. He needs to be in the lineup. Have Azhar, Misbah, and Younis focus on Tests. They should focus on long term and have the likes of Asad, Umar, Hammad and Fawad in the lineup. Sort term they could hurt but long term they could really benefit.

Always good to see India lose and/or get humiliated, especially at the hands of the Pakistanis. Even more so when it conforms to the tradition of Pakistan's bowling bossing the Indian batting.

so its all up to Dhoni and Raina.
otherwise I thin an inform Gambhir or Shebhag or Koheli r very much capable of dominating this Pak attck.
another thing is India r playing too much cricket ,they need break so that they can mentally and physically and strategically prepare themselves better.
for the time being they should drop Shehbhag and bring Rehane back.

I would love for anyone to tell me when Indian batsmen are in form unless the pitch is flat. How convenient that they are in form against west indies and nz on flat pitches and start scoring 100/ 200. But when going overseas or playing good bowling on non flat pitches they lose form. It has nothing to do with form but quality of bowling/ pitches. Please let them play zimbabwe on flat pitches and all their lost form will come back.

first two games, we learnt why not to support India, now in the Final game Pakistan showed us again why not to support them ........ it was series of loosing game by poor cricket rather than winning games by good cricket

and may be the prize for a whitewash was less than what pak players may get by loosing the game and gifting the game to india

this was rubbish cricket from Pak.
when they came to bat they looked tok casual at times too cautious and negative.
Misbah spoiled the game with 39 from 82 balls.
Misbah along with Umar Akmal didnt push for singles,wasted too many deliveries.
Ind kept the pressure on and won it but thanks to Pak's cowardish chase.

Anyway this Odi series was far away from the expectations of a Pak-Ind clash. :down:
specially after a brilliant T20 series.

PS : I think its time for Misbah to retire.

thats probabpy because Ind after the first half didnt expect to win but they kept the pressure on and won it.
Neverheless such celebration for avoiding a whitewash to Pak in their own ground is very lame. :-p

Dhurrrrrrr hurrrrrrr Faltu........ :> @ Akmal brothers
although the target was small it wasn't too easy to score in that pitch for an unpredictable bating line up u have.......so,why u were wasting overs ? It wasn't a test match.........u created the real pressure on ur team like u did in the last world cup agains the same opposition @ Mezbah
