    When India and Pakistan start paying away they will go back down.
    "They" as India and Pakistan, or "they" as in England? :confused:

    I suppose. But having beaten England at home, Pakistan will fancy themselves to give England a run for their money at home, if not win (considering English seaming conditions will suit Pakistan's pacemen just as much as England's)

    Should be an easy chase, but we're maiking it difficult. We don't need big hitting to relieve pressure, because that risk can make a wicket doing nothing but make more pressure.

    What we need is 10 overs going at 4/5 an over and not losing a wicket.

    *goes to watch it*

    60/3. Flintoff batting well but a wicket again soon will turn the game on it's head.

    England will do well to bat even 40 overs here. 2 wickets remaining, 29.5 overs bowled.

    48 required off 12. Pak need 2 wickets.

    Still in Pakistan's favour but at least our score is getting close to making a game of it.

    It's not impossible to win from here but it'd be pretty remarkable.

    EDIT: Blackwell just ran out, forget what I said about us having a chance of winning. Now it's impossible. :p:

    Eat ur words !

    How can u call it Eng are gonna win !

    I mean after the tests chasing low targets and the batting in the ODI's as well 'Eng are going to win' !

    That speaks volumes of ignorance !

    They have a World class bowling attack ! I mean look at it defending 211 and even lower targets in the test !

    That bowling attack is magnificient full of variety and wicket taking bowlers, although they let Eng away when they relaxed as 8 wickets fell !


    So will it be 4-1 or 3-2 or will Pak use second rate sides ! I dont see wat more second rate teams Eng can use ! They are all back here anyway !

    Pakistan don't have a single bowler who you would put in a World XI, I'm sorry but it's a fact. So don't be too quick to use the phrase world class.

    I'm sure Shoaib Akhtar would be most people's pick in a World XI - and IIRC, he was selected for the super series.

    We have now. :p:

    Pakistan take the series 3-1 with one to play. England play for pride, Pakistan to go to no. 2 in the rankings and displace SA.
