yeah good on canada, really give us a scare!

and thne our compeltey terrible showing at new zealand

Akmal cost us that match by key drops esspecialy ross taylor, whom got dropped on 0 and 4 and then he went to score like 128 and a good number of those runs came in the last 5 overs or so and so balling wasnt good either, and then batting was horrid too, i mean Umar Gul was one of our better batsman, and this Pakistan team has 8 very capable batsman supposedly (Gul not included in this 8)
so i would maybe experiment a bit with zimbabwe, cause so far, (each out of 10)
Keeping has been a 2, terrible mistakes against Sri Lanka and Canada, and times those by 10 against New Zealand
Openers has been a 2 as well, these 2 guys were supposed to be in form, Hafeez and Shehzhad were supposed to be key guys, at least Hafeez has been bowling alright, and me thinks Shehzhads field has been saving him tho he did squat against new zealand, so maybe get him out of there
Fast bowling, probably a 6, a lot of it is keeping faults too, i mean if shoaib had gotten ross taylor early he woulda bowled differently, there could be alot of improvement, but it also could be alot worse, Once gul gets to his optimal form and Shoaib can keep snagging wickets and all razzaq has to do is keep a good economy, we can be very successful
Spinning, been an 8, Afridi really been bowling well, rehman is just too safe, doesnt really scare batsmen, its ok for hafeez to do that, but when youre brought in as a specialist spinnerm you got to do more, id rather see Ajmal at least he can attack
Middle order batting probbaly 6 or 7, and 5 of those points go to Misbah himself, need more contributions from other guys, Umar Akmal has been streaky, and Younis khan was good for like a game... we need more outta these guys, cant depend on misbah every game

so forzimbabwe, id like to see a new lineup, basically just so i can know we have other options (give shoaib a rest)
Hafeez/Shehzhad (probbaly hafeez just cause he can also be a bowling option)
Asad Shafiq (guy deserves a shot, technically sound batsman, ithink he is a very solid option for opening, give him a shot!)
Abdul Razzaq (this guy is just being wasted at 8)
Misbah (why change the only batsman thats been good on the team consistently!)
Younis Khan (hopefully the younis-misbah combo can be the foundation once more)
Umar Akmal (give him the gloves, we need to see if we have other options for keeping just in case)
Shahid Afridi (this guy is way overdue for a world cup score, he has to keep bowling the way he is right now)
Umar Gul
Wahab Riaz
Saeed Ajmal

thats 10, so i guess give hafeez and shehzhad both a shot again maybe one of them a little lower, i want to see razzaq at one down, and kami aint good enough to be on the team as just a batsman, im willing to give him another chance, he has let his team and country down big time, i expect a big game from him as 'sorry' in his next gmae with the gloves, but it shouldnt be against zimbabwe we gotta warm up some other guys just incase

Canada vs Australia going on right now. Canada won the toss and elected to bat. Had a promising start. Australia seems to be getting the grip back. 153/4 after 30 overs jimmy hansra just got out.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.

India got lucky. Without the stupid stupid stupid mistakes Hafeez, K.Akmal, Khan, Misbah, GULx30984932093283548 did. Pakistan would have won this game. I'm a girl and I could have batted better than these professionals. Wahab Riaz played amazing though. I won 100 bucks, called it that he was going to get 3 wickets today( Pretty bad idea...but I had a weird feeling)

Also, Tendulkar... wth?! How many lives did this guy have? He batted pretty badly too. He just got hella lucky today.

Just needed to rant my feelings about my team. All in all, India vs Sri Lanka shall be a great match. I'm rooting for Sri Lanka, but it'll be close!

Ah sorry but India played an excelllent bowling-fielding game.

The one criticisism of India has been their team game. Tonight they showed they can play as a team.

260 is a good. It not great score and India defended it well.

fuark: IMO the difference was sehwag tearing pak a new one. 21 runs in 1 over was the difference. our fielding was sh!t. umar gull was dissapointing. our bowling recovered but the damage was done. oh well. pak could made the chase manageable, but going in our batting was our weakness and pak didnt prove it otherwise. im glad we made it this far though. congrats to india.

India's dream of a World Cup triumph at home is one step closer after their bowlers suffocated Pakistan's batsmen to set up a 29-run victory in the semi-final in Mohali.

India's fielding was very good. I was getting frustrated on how well it was! Good game though. Congrats to India and the finals will be a very very good much. :)

ps. Is it true that India will make history if they win in the finals? I heard no one has won the World Cup on home grounds before?

It's partially true

No country has won world cup on home soil ever.
Intact the closest one to do so was Sri Lanka in 1996 when India pakistan and Sri lanka jointly co hosted. The final was in Lahore , Pakistan when Sri lanka beat Australia.
So technically no one has won in their home country. But a host country has won it :P
Time for India to rewrite the history books
Sri lanka has had an easier road to the finals than india. This can work against India too. They can be battle ready or tired after overcoming Australia & Pakistan. While Sri lanka made minced meat of England and newzealand

It'll be a great game of cricket none the less

India Pakistan games are more than cricket. They are virtual simulations of war in a cricketing environment

Sachin winning wc in his home town, Canucks presidents trophy winners and Stanley cup bound. Life is looking good :)

Wish I couldve seen more of it but glad I caught the end.
