Yup, final 10 overs are always interesting. Its time to get some runs, and when you have wickets in hand, its even more interesting, because then teams go for the big ones! :D

A good start in chasing will do the rest.
Good Luck!!

LOL! But the sky is still available and open! The Aussies will try and go for the big ones, over the top of the fielders! Lets hope the Pakistanis can bowl tight for another five overs, or try and get some quick wickets now. :D

Great cricket by Pakistan Team.
238 is not a big number to chase.
My bet is that Pakistan will win.

The funny thing is that Mcgrath got run out on a wide ball.. :D He actually tried to take a single! But unfortunately couldn't make it.

It will be your day Sultan (of Pakistan!). We shall pray for that. 238 target is not a hard one. But Cricket is cricket. Your boys are energized with two wins against WI and Aussies. Australia did not show any good face today any time. Pakistan did. All the best. And thanks gain for the audio link. God bless. :clap::flag:

These umpires suck big time.
But we bowled damn good today and deserve the damn win.
We better win.
Also guys it might be rain affected and pakistan might end up with chasing 8 runs per over. Lets hope for the best.

if we are less then 4 wickets down by 15 overs, we should be able to take the match.

If Bangladesh want to improve in cricket We need to enjoy other countries cricket. It will allow us to learn from the stregth of different countries. Only fan of their country can show us the deep rooted strength of them. We need to encourage fans of different country to come and to spend as much time as they can in this forum so that we can learn about their experince.

If you love Bangladesh cricket and want your country to improve then encourage all the fans of different country for their own countries cricket. Be smart and friendly.:up:

If Inzamam stayed, and Razzaq didn't run stupid, then there were chances to win this match.

I think Inzamam would be replaced soon. But I don't think hes a bad captain. Hes pretty good. He plays the Captain's part. atleast scores a 50. He scored five 50's in this series. He plays a Captain's knock. But some stupid players like Shoaib Akhter and a few others create internal problems.

238 runs is nothing.. They should've done that easily..

Pak lost by 18 runs. good luck in next ODI. I heard in south asia world this morning that, Shoiab Akhter not considered for india tour and also team mates donot want him due to his attitude. What is going on? Looks like, Shoiab needs a crash course for rebuilding his reputation

Pakistan did good in the bowling department but the top order collapsed and made it just too hard on the rest of the batsmen. But we still should have won. If Afridi wasn't a dumbass and didn't try to hit a six every ball, Pakistan could have won easily.

I expect the Aussies to be back with vengeance on Sunday and thrash us.
