    Pakistan complete a win by 6 wickets with 30 balls to spare

    44.6 McMillan to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, and there it is, full outside off stump, dances down the pitch and strongly punched straight down the ground, Twose is left for dead at widish mid off and Pakistan complete a win by 6 wickets with 30 balls to spare.

    ********CONGRATSSSSSS ALLLLL**************

    Pakistan wrap up a comfortable victory, holding back on the great flair they're capable of and will be set to unleash in the remainder of the series at the right time. The moment Shoaib Akhtar return to the attack, he spelt a very quick end to the innings, taking just 21 minutes, and 2.3 overs to tear apart the lower order, taking 5 wickets for 4 runs in the spell. including taking all 5 wickets in a span of 11 balls at the cost of just 2 runs, and 4 wickets for 1 run in the space of just 6 balls including two bursts of wickets on consecutive deliveries. A devastating spell, to complete his first 5-wicket haul in One-Day Internationals, and incredibly doing it in his first international match since 23 April 2000. Also S.Anwar, YoYo, Inzi batter very well !!!

    Shoaib bowled well and it was an excellent comeback and a warning to the opposition that the Rawalpindi Express is all set to fire again.

    Great batting from Saeed Anwar to see the side to safety. He batted like a rock, and adapted his game to the situtation which is typical of a class player like Saeed..and this is after a long lay off and no match practice.

    Youhana did his job well and Wasim and Waqar bowled extremely effectively today - so hopefully the bowling will maintain its form.

            yaar kingshah they only lost four wickets which is not bad consdering we have a history of collapsing.. The batsmen were extra cautious and you just cant expect them to wrap it up in 20 or 30 overs right..anyways congrats to everyone..

                  Great win by Pakistan, Shoaib bowled well but the only problem is that he looks overweight.
                  One question I have is HOW CAN A SPIN BOWLER manage to bowl WIDES and NO-BALLS

                      Shoaib got to 147 km - he's still very quick but obviously it'll take him a while to get back to his full pace. Tough luck Kiwis

                      The good thing was that he seemed really pumped up after his lay off and the seniors, Wasim Akram and Saeed Anwar in particular, were encouraging him after every over which was great to see.

                      Pakistan should play the same team till we win the series. Then it would be a good option to rest Saeed,Wasim,Inzamam,Shoaib,Saqlain and play
                      Elahi,Nazir,Mahmood,Sami,and Mushtaq in the last 2 games so that everyone has match practice before the test matches.

                      Besides I wanna see what Sami can do in the international arena.

                        Shoib bhai zindabad!!!

                        Shoib bowled extremely well he was the only reason i stayed up to watch the match!

                        And he doesn't look ovcerweight - he has been training and has bigger muscles!!!

                        Anyone see the size of his neck????? Masssssssssssssssssssive !!
                        People i can see him hitting a 100mph this series!

                          Yes, Shoaib is certainly more muscular - lets hope that doesn't hold his speed back. His run up seemed a bit sluggish. Anyway he bowled fast on a slow wicket. I understand that he was holding back and not rushing into bowl fast like he did last time in the West Indies when he got injured.

                          Lets see him go onto bowl even faster. The other problem I noticed was that he did not have a follow through on his bowling - just signs of bein out of cricket for a long while.

                          He was bowling at 147km which is approx 90mph - lets see him get to the 100mph soon.

                            well i didnt see the match lekin i guess it was a sensible performance, i was just reaading the report on cric info abt this victory and it said that the action of SHOAIB was a little different(suspicious) when bowling to left-handers, how true was that, if any1 saw it!!!!
