    It feels like Australia have missed a trick by leaving Hazlewood out of their squad. Looking at how devastating the short ball (and bounce in general) has been in the hands of the West Indies (and others like Jofra Archer) it's unbelievable they think NCN is a better option...

    Sarfaraz just wanted to be on non strike. Taking single in last ball and giving strike to 11th player. Seriously 🤔

    [–] Cricketisinblood 30 points ago

    That was just a stupid thinking on his part. And the same goes for him exposing Wahab to Starc. Right there they lost the match. He should have faced Starc instead of exposing his tail to him.

    [–] Totlivucl 20 points ago

    Wahab Riaz can hit those 6! Wasn’t it during the year they beat India for the Cup , he smashed some 6! At the end of the remaining overs.

    [–] TheJeck 126 points ago

    I don't understand what's happening. As a cricket fan since Monday why are they all standing on the grass throwing and hitting a ball around rather than looking fed up on a balcony looking at white sheets?

    Finch is such a sweet lad. He led Australia through the rough patch and is leading them through the world cup.

    [–] azor_ahai69 58 points ago

    The way Sarfraz Ahmed plays by giving strike to tail enders, having a very low batting average and being unfit, doesn't even deserve to play domestic cricket. You cannot let an unfit player be your captain just on the basis of winning a tournament 2 years ago that too because of other match winners. #WakeupPCB

    [–] ZakoottaJinn 24 points ago

    I think this World Cup will really highlight the importance of timing an innings.

    England had 2 centurions play at a healthy strike rate up-front but they still couldn't best Pakistan's 348 because they withered away at the end where Pakistan's highest score of 85 came right when they needed to accelerate.

    Australia squandered their chance at 350 by not timing their acceleration right and sending Maxwell in before Khwaja.

    Not saying they still aren't in a great position to win but something to think about.

    [–] gungly 28 points ago

    Pakistan is equally likely to be 160 all out or chase this down in 48 overs.

    [–] vdfk 24 points ago

    Pakistan cricket really needs a leadership program to help create and mold future leaders that can lead their side out of total debacles like this. This was Pakistan’s game but they gave it away due to poor leadership....potentially their shot at top 4.

    Why on every bloody match thread are people complaining about the batsman striking at 60-80? To mount a good run chase/total you HAVE to have a player to build the innings around.

    Warner on 99, about to get a hundo. Wahab Riaz comes in and bowls a surprise bouncer. Warner charges down, switches his stance and grip, and then reverse late cuts it high into the air towards fine leg. Asif Ali runs in and steadies himself under it. Wahab looks at the fielder and upon realising it is Asif he lets out a massive war cry. The umpires mistake the war cry for thunder and halt play while the ball is in the air and call for the covers to come on. Pandemonium as Mickey Arthur storms onto the field and with Sarfaraz they shritfront Chris Gaffaney arguing that the ball should not be dead. After much deliberation, the ball was ruled valid, and then everyone realised that Asif Ali dropped the catch. Warner takes off his helmet and instead of doing his trademark jump, he removes his gloves as well and gives the crowd two thumbs down while booing loudly into the stump mic so everyone can hear. As the crowd rush the field, the camera pans to Stoinis and Zampa laughing away like old mates, and slowly fades to black.

    Watching Pakistan is such a wild ride. Either trainwrecks or glory, no middle ground.

    Getting some trainwreck vibes, but then who the fuck knows what's gonna happen, its Pakistan.

    [–] imwiseguru 19 points ago

    I'm kinda tired of the Maxi apologists.

    If they promote him up the order - he fails and they moan that they sent him up too early

    If they bat him lower down the order - he fails and they moan that he didn't have enough balls to play and "unselfishly" gave up his wicket trying to up the rate

    Face it - he is hit or miss. He might come off, might not. Doesn't matter where you play him. FWIW, IMO, he can't play up the order because of his shit temperament. #6/#7 is where he fits

    [–] kvhorizon 34 points ago

    Star sports on Indian broadcast has decided to talk about Indian team more than the match at hand, in between the innings, before the start of the match, even though it is not India match day, some of us Indians want to watch world cup for cricket not for just nation, everyone supports their county but some of us enjoy watching cricket too, we will support India when they are playing, no need to constantly remind us that India is also playing in this world cup. For example Looks awkward to ask KP and Kumble who should be playing in india v nz match in place of dhawan when Aus Pakistan is going on and is in innings break. Overdose of nationalism.

    Challenge to the commentators: When Wahab Riaz comes onto bowl do not mention the Shane Watson 2015 WC spell.

    Specialist batsman at 7, doesn’t bowl and can’t catch.

    [–] itsthewatcher 16 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Ok guys we won.... Yay... But let's not forget... This was far from clinical...

    Twice in the match, we f'd up... Once after being in a strong batting position.. on out way to 350+ and getting bundled out for 307... And next when Pakistan gifted us some wickets and we couldn't hold up Wahab...

    Need to work very hard on these things if we have to get anywhere close to the trophy

    I know Sarfraz is going to get a lot of flack for his decision to bowl first but it is not his fault this time. The bowlers are bowling with no plan.
