lmaooo...control yaar, itni bezzati. hamari fielding bhi chutya hay, somehow stepping up this game though. 

Tumhari fielding bakwaas hai par kam se kam catch toh lena aata hain. If you followed India's matches the last 3 years you'll know what I am talking about, we are full of drop machines who can do all the monkey stunts on the outfield but find it impossible to take regulation catches at waist height.

first of all, no one bowls 90mph consistently in tests. Hassan has gone upto 90mph in t20s. And bumrah most certainly cannot bowl that fast in tests lolllllllll , he is a T20 specialist...wait let me rephrase that, he is an IPL specialist :phehe::phehe::phehe:

I know you are trolling but I will bite. Bumrah's quickest in SA tests was 92mph and his average pace too was a lot more quicker than Hasan. Hasan seems spends more energy in those cringy celebrations than bowling quick :phehe:

Bumrah is nippy but boyyyy is that action ugly or what.

 

Does he have a celebration?

vijay,pujara and dhawan should take batting lesson from azhar ali,asad shafiq.....indian players are money hungry whores that don't give a toss about test match cricket.

Vijay was our top scorer in England last time and played a huge role in the Lord's win. Hopefully that SA series was a one off. All our batsmen should however take inspiration from Pak batsmen who IMO are vastly inferior talent wise but much more gutsy, patient and humble....all important attributes in the mother of all formats.

vijay lost my respect when he was chasing 7th stump deliveries from philander , like a tailender.

The root cause was him shuffling across the stumps, something he never did in the past. I wonder which genius came up with that idea (wouldn't put it past bevda)...by doing that he lost his judgement of the off stump. By the time he stopped shuffling (3rd innings Jo'berg) it was already too late. His strength is judgement of off stump and the art of leaving, if he can't do that in England I hope he is kicked out permanently.

How did you come to conclusion , just based on one lousy test by Pakistan in England , test is not over by the way.

Not sure why England are playing so badly - rust?  Poor shot selection, dropped catches, inconsistent bowling - they are out-Pakistaning Pakistan, while the greenbros are playing with good discipline.  

 

 

They are a mediocre team with a lot of flash but no grit apart from Cook who's quite the opposite. In recent times, their obsession with allrounders has ruined their test team combination with bits and pieces rubbish like Moeen. Not enough specialist bats who can score the big hundreds.

Well done boys. We are well ahead of this match. If Azam was not retire hurt we would have had lead over 200. :two_thumbs_up:

Why did Eng dropped Moeen Ali?

They don't want him playing for his country :phehe:

 

Actually they dropped him for poor performances in the away tours ... forgetting that he is a different player at home !

They should have gone with an all pace attack, too early for spinners to get purchase in England.

IDK ... all the commentators are calling this a dry surface underneath some dying grass.

 

Lets see what happens day 3 on.

Why would you drop Imam? He’s been one of the few consistent bats on this tour thus far.

Advanced congrats to Pakistani ICFers, this is heading towards a massacre. Never seen an Asian side bully a SENA team this way overseas, Eng is officially Pakistan's client.

They are using these as practice and real England will show up for money series against Mighty Hindustan.

the more i see pakistani batsman leaving balls....the more i fell shitty about vijay and pujara in saf ....shameful, they have to pull their socks up!

You cannot compare SA and England pitches. SA pitches are harder and bouncier. Capetown and Wanderers pitches this year were two of the toughest pitches to bat on I have seen in recent times. Most England pitches are slower and lack bounce except Rose Bowl and probably Old Trafford.  Pak scored 49 in SA a few years back.

And catching is another key issue, Pakistanis were fantastic in trying conditions (extremely cold, movement in air even after taking edge) yesterday. Our idiots would have missed 5 catches and never have attempted the tough ones, hands in pockets types. Today Cook has already dropped a sitter and Eng are paying for that. If we drop 20-25 catches in the 5 tests we will surely lose, that is why Kohli/Dhawan should be away from slips/gully and that waste of sperm Pappu Patel shouldn't be allowed to leave the country the whole year, there should be lookout notices for him in all airports/ports. Phir bhi baaki ke gadhe catch chorenge lekin kaafi kam.

its not that cold 16 degrees min, 27 max. it is a good weather to play cricket. On the warmer side and not cooler.  GB was saying it is a heatwave in England.

Really nervous but excited at the same time thinking about our test series there, surely conditions won't be this treacherous. I sense a repeat of 2007.

in fact, we will need good bowling conditions. flat pitches and we will concede 500-600 runs.

Read that England dropped 5 catches.

97.2

Anderson to Shadab Khan, no run, third drop by Cook at slip. He had it there at first slip. He had it, I'm telling you. Just couldn't cup it and ended up dropping it. Another length ball bouncing with some seam outside off, Shadab Khan dabbled it, getting it off the shoulder of the bat. Doesn't pay for it. Lucky

 
 
 
96.5

Mark Wood to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, Cook drops another at first slip. Straightening outside off, taking the outside edge and it was slightly wide and right of Cook. But that said, he did have his body weight going the other way, which made the reach to his right just that little bit late. Bairstow didn't go for the catch at all. Was to his left, so maybe. Just rubbernecked the drop and the ball's journey to the fence

 
 
 
70.4

Stokes to Shafiq, no run, back of a length delivery outside off, Shafiq pokes at it outside off, ball bounced a touch extra and Shafiq got a flying outside edge. Buttler dived in the air David de Gea style, flying to his left at gully but that was just too high. Did well to get his fingertips to it really. Palms it towards second slip, where Malan is diving right-handed and it just eludes him. Could have been a great tag-team catch had it carried to Malan

 
 
 
 
 
 
55.1

Anderson to Babar Azam, 2 runs, dropped by Cook at first slip! Babar Azam is a compulsive driver when it's full and Anderson bowled the perfect delivery to draw an error from him. It was pitched up and veered away touch to catch the edge and it flew to the right of slip where Cook went with one hand and spilled. A slightly tough one, but by Cook's standards it should have been taken

 
 
 
18.6

Mark Wood to Haris Sohail, no run, first drop of the day. Haris Sohail was squared up completely by the good length ball at the stumps. He got a leading edge as he was trying to flick....and the ball was going straight to Malan at second slip, but Stokes dived to his right and looked to grab it one-handed. It didn't stick unfortunately. It was always a second slip's catch and Stokes should have left that alone to Malan

But in those conditions our batsmen will be sitting ducks, 2007 pitches were the right kind for us. Enough support for bowlers but batsmen too found it ok to deal with. Our batsmen have always found it more difficult viz a viz opposition batsmen in England, as compared to SA and Aus.

I think it was closer to 16 with the damp, gloomy conditions for most part of the day.
