This Indian side is the best test side in the history of Indian cricket...on the other hand the current Pakistan side is going through a rebuilding process and is the weakest in its history!...So u know..I reckon Pakistan did awfully well to draw the first match on the first place and realistically shudn't expect to win the last test....I'll expect them to turn it on in the ODIs though..cheers...

FRom BBC:
Ganguly said: "This is Test cricket's most competitive rivalry. We'll obviously be going for a win."

Opener Yasir Hameed and off-spinner Arshad Khan are both likely to get their first starts of the series for Pakistan, with Taufeeq Umar and paceman Mohammad Khalil set to miss out.

India are likely to be unchanged, with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh partnering their premier slow bowler Anil Kumble despite the former's report for a suspected illegal bowling action.

Pakistan (from): Inzamam-ul-Haq (captain), Yasir Hameed, Shahid Afridi, Younis Khan, Yousuf Youhana, Asim Kamal, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Sami, Arshad Khan, Danish Kaneria, Taufeeq Umar, Salman Butt, Mohammad Khalil, Naved-ul-Hasan, Shoaib Malik.

I think its kinda late to bring Arshad Khan into the scene in such a crucial stage. I think they should've bowled him from the 1st Test- regardless of what the pitch looked like. In both Mohali and Calcutta the pitch didn't offer any assitance to the pacers. It would've been ideal to let Arshad prepare himself and given Danesh a good break, i think he's burnt out already. It stupid to play with so many seamers. Razzaq can open the bowling with Sami or be dropped for that matter. Pakistan doesn't need a handful of all-rounders in a Test team. Taufeeq Umar is out of touch and Yasir should've been brought in much earlier or at least given a stint in the domestic matches- which reminds me. This tour they've hardly played against any practice matches!

Pak just can't seem to settle thier opening situation. Virtually every game they have a new set of openers. Yaseer Hamid now and he is gone already. They should have stuck it out with Salman Butt. He is way better than Taufeeq Umar. Umar is dropped for this match. No wonder they are always in trouble in the beginning. Too much uncertainity at the top of the order..

Good comeback by Pakistan from close to total disaster. At lunch they are 93/2. Still its a wash.

Lest see who wins the 2nd session.

Highest partnership for any wicket by any team against India in India!

Pakistan has played really well and has a very good foundation for a big score. The problem with Pakistan is that they are so unpredictable that it can work both as their advantage and disadvantage. And in recent times its the latter.
Pakistan needs to make a score of 600+, getting another 270 in 70 overs isn't a big task especially when you have wickets in hand and have big hitter's like Yousuf and Razzaq still to come. Inzi is also enough to boost the team's score.
I hope he gets his double tomorrow. I think Pakistan should declare after playing another 60-70 odd overs tomorrow.
This team looks pretty darn good to me and i hope they can pull off a win! It has been a tough tour for them.

Pakistan may have started horribly but Inzi brings them back....

I think Pak will go on and declare around 570 (if they make it that far). THen India should start of well maybe lose one wicket.

So far India is in trouble. They will have to get Inzi or Khan out as soon as possible. Then they must make sure no body else gets a good start.

Big man Inzy proved everybody wrong. He is a great player. Looks like younus khan has found his form back. They still have yohana who can score big also. This match is far from over. They should reach 500 easily unless decide to throw thier wickets tomorrow

Look at how Inzamam rose to the occasion, it was his 100th test and Pakistan needs to win this test...

Will he score a double century? Interestingly enough, the last Pakistani to score a double century was Inzamam when he scored 329 against New Zealand two years back.

I am really surprised at this first day of third test, everybody thought that India was going to have an easy win and they started well dismissing two wickets for 7 (2.5 overs), but then Inzaman proved to be a great guidance for his team and now just needs 16 runs to get 200 (did anybody ever score 200 runs in a test played in India?).
I am anxious to see what will happen tomorrow, but now I hope Pakistan will win the test as a reckoning for the pride they have shown in this series.

I guess his double wasn't in the cards! I'm disappointed at him not moving his feet, although its the first ball of the day- but still for a person of so much responsibility he should know how crucial it is to not lose any wickets!

looks like all the paki batsmen have the "new-day-first-ball" syndrome

anyways, i think they'll get to around 550 or so and declare. mustn't take too much time for that though - they may as well end up with a draw and lose the series.

Pakistan all out for 570 in the first innings, Younis Khan fell after scoring 267. India 55/0, at the end of day 2, Shewag 39*

This match is probably going to be a draw.

too early to say- i won't say anything of the outcome of the match till tea of day 4, because unless Pakistan can really make way into the indian batting tomorrow, its very close to a tame draw!
