Faisalabad Test: Stumps, Day 4
I don't have the time to comment in depth on today
's proceedings, but my gut feeling is that tomorrow might well be a very exciting day, we might or might not get a result, but it would be exciting all the same.
From Pakistan's perspective, I think we will probably be looking at giving India something like 300 odd runs to chase in about 50 odd overs, but this obviously would depend upon how we bat in the first hour tomorrow, if we lose a couple of quick wickets, then obviously, the declaration would never came, especially given Inzi wont be batting.
I also thought we should have send Afridi to open, but they send in Akmal instead, and even though he's made a fab half century in response, we're still only scoring at three and a half runs an over, if we need to press for a chance to bowl at India after setting them a medium to smallish target, we'll certainly have to get our runs faster then this tomorrow.
Oh, and before I forget, I didn't get to watch the whole day's play (had college), only saw the better half of the last session, but I was told that there was a bit of scene between Shoaib and Dhoni, just before he got out, apparently after Shoaib bowled a beamer, and that Afridi also got a wee bit too excited at times.
I haven't seen the highlights either as yet, so I cannot comment if they went over the line, but I just hope they don't get them selves in any hot water with the match referee again, considering we've already received a warning yesterday
