The New and Improved Cricket Thread© - Now Roadblock Free!

I've said it before but if their game completely clicks, Pakistan is one of the only true global teams in cricket. It's a big if though but they've got future potential in guys like Fakhar, Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan. Scary potential.

They can play on pace pitches in places like England and South Africa if they truly put their mind to it and have no real issues on slow/flat pitches in Asia.

Pakistan's brilliance.

Sadly I don't think it will last because they won't protect these young guns and politics will find a way. The likes of Hafeez, Akmal, Wahab and other Inzi backed buffoons will continue playing.

Great win by the pakistani team. Congrats to the boys in green. And that hardik pandya innings was something special. He reminds so much of afridi for some reason.

The indian players had an off day today. Right from fakhar no ball dismissal you knew that it was not their day. But having said that, hthe pakistani bowlers were superb and Once kohli fell there was no chance of them chasing the target. Wish the teams played more cricket together regularly.

I didnt see the Cook dismissal but was surprised at him going so cheap - he's been by far the best batsman in the county championship this year.

I think number 2's all still a work in progress, which is a bit of a joke tbh

Cook looked weirdly out of touch. The bowling was fine but not exceptional to him, a bit of swing but nothing unusual for someone like him to handle.
