    Another Fascinating day's cricket as predicted !

    England are really lucky not to loose this time, It could have been easily 2-0 to be honest had this really been a 5th day pitch Eng would have lost and had Pak held on to their catches !

    Eng dont seem upto it ! Dont seem like Ashes winners dont seem no 1 or 2 in the world !

    Pak have a fantastic record in Lahore, with more play to be lost and a flatter pitch it may be 1-0 or the way Eng are playing they may lose 2-0 !

    Afridi out i think they will bring in Razzaq who has reverse swing and batting, if he is fit or another batsman like Akmal maybe the state of the pitch may dictate the return of Musthaq ! Pakistan hold all the aces !

    i have to say the umpiring has definately been shocking, and in this test match , and even the first test pakistan wore the brunt of the bad decisions -mohd yousuf's comes to mind in the 1st test.

    also daryl hair has always been biased against asian players the famous issue against murali for starters.also no other umpire has gave danish kaneria any warnings for running on the pitch except for the test againt the windies - guess who the umpire was ???? hair!!!!!!

    however tauffel goes about his business in less contoversial fashion.shabbir ahmed was cleared from australia for his bowling action, he was our best bowler in the 1st test - so guess wat tauffel and bowden report him after being cleared . very good subtle move, to weaken pakistan.

    also the decisions they got wong were of our best player - yousuf on 78 - illeagal bell catch !!!!!
    inzamam on 100 odd - the conveniently forgot the laws of the game . pak would have gone on to score 550 + if those bad decisions hadnt been made !!!!!

    I think we'd do better batting first, or at least they'd do worse...

    You don't think it's got anything to do with the fact that Muralitharan before the age of massive amounts of biomechanical testing looks as if he throws it? Just to throw that idea out there, it's not as if he no-balled someone who was bowling with a pure action. I love watching Muralitharan bowl in cricket, but I still think he's chucking it.

    also no other umpire has gave danish kaneria any warnings for running on the pitch except for the test againt the windies - guess who the umpire was ???? hair!!!!!!
    Look at the television replays, every time he was warned he was running on the track. I don't see how you can refute that.

    however tauffel goes about his business in less contoversial fashion.shabbir ahmed was cleared from australia for his bowling action, he was our best bowler in the 1st test - so guess wat tauffel and bowden report him after being cleared . very good subtle move, to weaken pakistan.
    Tell me what Taufel and Bowden had to gain by Ahmed not playing? I hate to be the one to say this, but Shabbir chucks it more than anyone else on the international circuit. I'm not sure what's more incredible, the fact that he managed to get as far as the national team with such a flawed action, or the fact that he's still allowed bowl despite being called up for having a flawed action so many times. Biomechanical tests have shown Shabbir to have been breaching the rules of bowling (both 10 and 15 degree limits) in the past, and has only returned to international cricket after undergoing remedial action. The most suspect thing about this is that Inzamam had no problem bowling Shoaib Malik, another person whose been reported, yet they chose to drop Shabbir, why? I'm going to hazzard a guess and say it's because the fact that Shabbir was throwing it was pretty obvious, and if Inzamam and the PCB were seriously worried about the strength of their attack on the basis of Shabbir being left out, they would have played him anyway, there is no ICC restriction not allowing him to play during this series.

    also the decisions they got wong were of our best player - yousuf on 78 - illeagal bell catch !!!!!
    Spare a thought for Brian Lara, whose been triggered 3 out of 4 innings now in Australia. Unless there is a global conspiracy by the ICC elite umpires panel to make certain teams bleed, then I think the PCB, the WICB and the BCCI would be filing complaints left right and centre if there were any credible evidence for racism amongst umpiring decisions.

    inzamam on 100 odd - the conveniently forgot the laws of the game . pak would have gone on to score 550 + if those bad decisions hadnt been made !!!!!
    You don't know that, Inzamam could have had all 3 stumps knocked out of the ground the very next ball. To say that they would have gone onto score 550+ is pure speculation.

    PS: Umpires for the 3rd test are Darrel Hair and Rudi Koertzen.

    Mohammed Asif has been brought into the squad.

    Pakistan squad for the 3rd test: Inzamam-ul-Haq (capt), Salman Butt, Shoaib Malik, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Asim Kamal, Kamran Akmal (wk), Mohammad Sami, Danish Kaneria, Arshad Khan, Mushtaq Ahmed, Shoaib Akhtar, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Hasan Raza, Mohammad Asif.

    I'm not sure if they'll play another spinner, Kaneria didn't even take a single wicket during the last Test, and the pitch at Lahore is supposedly similar to this pitch at Faisalabad.

    iscariot - theres one thing making a mistake in the heat of the moment , but its a different matter , when between 3 umpires they cant inflict the laws of the game.Didnt daryll hair know that u coulnt be out avoiding the ball for safety purposes ???????

    why does there always seem to be controvesy linked with hair ?????

    uve given a bleak list of answers , to try and defend hair , but the fact of the matter is there are very few good umpires left in the panel: steve buchnor and aleem dar/and propbably simon taufell

    I disagree - Aleem Dar is a bad umpire when it comes to lbw decisions... the other two are top notch though.

    hmm...I'm not 100% convinced - he did make some bad calls - e.g. aussie batting in the fourth test - but still better than many.

    toufel might be a good umpire but no were near aleem dar.

    dar hardly makes a mistake, if he was a white man he would have created history.

    toufel is nothing extordinary just a white man enjoying the benefits. just imagine were he would be if he was an asian./

    I think that speaks for itself really - considering he's aussie they wont have been able to vote for him (neutral umpires.etc.), so then he must be making a good impression with the players round the world, even if a certain fan doesn't think so.

    ICC Chairman Ehsan Mani is a Pakistani.

    Bell's catch was contentious, but then it was up to the Pakistan team to complain. The Bangladesh team complained about Rashid Latif, thats why he was banned. Complain to the PCB, not to the white people.
