That should get you around 140 - anything more is a bonus. Then pitching the ball in the right areas and holding on to catches should translate into wins for us having seen the strength of the Pakistani and Sri Lankan batting line-ups.
Agreed, this is how we should play, if we target 140 the RR is only about 7 so you can get that easily just by rotating strike and scoring one boundary in 2 overs.

You never know in a T20 match, so I will still say we need to set a target of 160 to be on the safe side but we need surely to see off the first overs, mainly the shine on the new ball. So if Tamim was there just by bludgeoning a few to the boundary he would have done that, which is why I said he sets up the game for us. That role needs to be taken by someone. Stop the swinging and the bounce of the ball and batting becomes easy, motto of the day.
