This just proves how blatant run out of Lewis changed the last t20. That was sheer cheating by the Pakistani fielder to get in Lewis' way. If that didn't happen, Pakistan would have gotten thrashed like today.

Both games, got run out in both games. Now if they can only have Lendl Simmons open with him, they both can murder pak in power play overs.

Lewis actually changed the angle in which he was running towards the fielder, if he ran straight he wouldn't have ran into the fielder.

 

I can never understand why some batsman run diagonally.

Congrats boys. Well played. :bow:

You really happy with their performance?  They scraped over the line - could have easily lost the 2nd T20 if not for 'F' grade fielding and batting by West Indies, and Samuels throwing his wicket in an ego battle.   Pakistan loudly and proudly demonstrated their batting limitations this series.  It really has been a competition of which team bats worse to lose it - not which team plays well to win it.  

 

Its a sad story when rejects with attitude problems are your best batsmen - apart from Babar, who isn't much of a T20 batting stalwart anyway, decent bat though.  

 

Where are decent batting prospects for Pakistan?  Is the well that dry?

We are proud and happy that we won the tournament against T20 world champions where India lost against them. Winning is most important thing for us. So whatsoever we won the series and you should appreciate the effort of Pakistan rather trolling. You guys still cant believe that PAK won that 3-1 :giggle:

All rrrrrrrrrrighty then.   If you can be proud of that, good for you.   What's not to believe in one team winning if 2 crappy ones are playing.  Someone's going to win.   I still think Windies have underperformed so far, and Pak have been a bit lucky for that.  Its predictable actually - I was one of the few who predicted that Windies will win a test when touring UAE - Windies actually came within one good innings of winning the series.

So what u guys really expected from this tour? I still dont understand why Indians point out our weaknesses. Oh come on yaar, every team there are weaknesses more or less. There is no perfect team. We know every team every day doesnt give 100% but still we can improve as a team. Win is win no matter what. You tell me If I asked why India lost 1st test to AUS, it is not the right thing to ask now because somehow IND managed to win the series whatsoever. So pls dont try to analyse weaknesses cuz Series win is the ultimate result a team wants.

Focus on Tests Lala brother. West Indies have a great chance defeating this Pakistani test team.  I predict 2-1 to West Indies or 1-1 atleast. Pakistan not going to win the series for sure. :phehe:

So what did you expect about this tour from Indian fans? You expect them not to laugh at the opportunities that this weaker than Bangles batting gives them?  Face it, Indian and Pakistan fans enjoy making hay when the "rival" is not doing well, and with this Pakistani team, you'd better get used to taking some heat.

Shannon, Miguel, Alzarri - Windian pacers have some potential.  If they get a pitch with a bit of pace and bounce, they might run through Al-Bakistani batting lineup in a session.  And then there's their nemesis - the great Bishoo to wrap them up in the 2nd innings.  All the windies really need is some of their batsmen to stand up and score meaningful runs.  Pakistan is lucky that there won't be Darren Bravo around to boss them due to a BS dispute between him and WICB board president.  If he was in the team, I'd put the Windies as slight favorites!

Sami Aslam dropped from test team?  Classic Pak politics.  The chewtiyapa continues.  I guess even "Inzi the legend" can be counted on to toe the corrupt company line.  How do you expect Pak batting to improve if you don't back the prospects with the best potential.

And worst of all, Shan Masood picked. It's understandable to pick Ahmed Shehzad who has performed reasonably in domestic recently, So would be an automatic choice with Sharjeel not available.

 

Sami Aslam was a solid batsman who performed well in England, Should have been in the starting XI rather not even in squad of 15.

 

On the other side, Good to see Usman Salahuddin being picked, He is very solid like Azhar Ali and has very good test batting approach, Have a look over him if he gets a chance to bat. :)

Just read about WI's ODI selections,couldnt stop :rofl: @ Carlos Braithwaite at IPL.

He should not go to IPL 'cause his country needs him for World cup chances more than money.Currently WI # 9 in ICC ranking in ODI,World champion now slips to # 6 in t20.

Reality is he's not an integral piece of that ODI lineup.  Hasn't learned how to bat more than 20 balls, and his bowling is part-timer level.  Jason Holder can do that already, bowl a bit better, although probably likely to hit a boundary or 2 less than him.  A good ODI squad doesn't need them both.  Braithwaite is a good slugger, but a limited batsman at this point.  From both the money and player development perspective, he's better off playing the IPL right now.  

 

Arguably Nicholas Pooran should be in the Windies scheme of things, wonder why he hasn't really gotten a callup yet.  Windies should groom him.

I like watching this young kid Alzarri bowl.  Love the ever-present scowl on his face.  Dude is the proper heir to Steyn - not Rabada - he looks like a smiling clown most of the time, decent bowler he is though.

 

Pakistan playing with 5 bowlers, and Shoaib Malik and Hafeez.  England complex - bowling options all over.  Seem to put a bit of belief in Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan's batting abilities.

Nicholas Pooran was completely failure when given chance but I forget vs whom he played?

I will finds it for you later on
