Crazy on Pakistan's donkey, I tell you. Boundaries and overboundaries galore.

339 for 4 in 50 overs. Lara 156.

WI made 141 in the last 11 overs, 77 in the last 5. Between overs 39 and 49, Lara himself made 85.

I am watching the game. Saw his innings. He struggled mightily in the beginning. Settled down, scored singles and twos, then the fireworks at the end. his first 50 came off 81, second one of 35 and the last one off 22!! amazing stuff. Majority of the sixes came overs cover and point including one astonishing one of Azhar over the point, which he hit with one hand! the bottom hand came off as he was launching it..

Pure genius at work! I don't know anyone who can improvise like him when needed. Once a century type player...

Recently Tendulkar has become boring to watch, but Lara is still great

Lara is absolutely electrifying!!!!! When he is in form, he is the most elegant batsmen in the world.

My favorite innings of lara is his 153 not out against the Aussies.

I'll be satisfied (not happy) if Ashraful can win us 1 of the remaining 2 one day matches with his bat.

How come Shoaib Malik is being played in the squad? I just don't get it!!! This is absurd- he doesn't even get to bowl. And Younis Khan- who has shown such consistency during the Test series and batting his heart out during practice matches and he doesn't even get a chance! Whatever respect i had for the Pakistan team- i'm now losing it!
I don't care about this series anymore!
About Lara- no doubt he is genius- a very flashy, flamboyant genius! I don't think anybody has been born with such talent- ever! Tendulkar is brilliant becoz of his hardwork- Lara is a sheer freak of nature!

read the thread on match fixing and you'll know why;)

it's a trend that has been followed for quite some time in pakistan ;)

yeah- but it still doesn't explain Younis's exclusion- when he's in prime form and also none of the players mentioned are playing in the team nowadays!
