What made the victory delicious for brits is that they have a sorry history in penalty kicks in Football.

When I look at the highlights I realize how good these sportsmen are under pressure. We saw 3 runouts in the dying moments , with great precision of stop, throw and whip the bails. That deflection was like a divine providence. Easily the greatest ODI I have ever seen and I have seen 1000s of them.

"He's still a teenager! " He is only as much a teenager as Shahid Afridi was 16 in 1996. Seems more like 25-28.

Commiserations. If there is any silver lining it is the end of comparison with 1992. It was really stupid.

Chasing 338 successfully would have been a record. I think the body language and the attitude of the team in the first ten overs made it abundantly clear that they were not too keen on winning. Let us also not rule out the possibility that they had an additional motivation to let Eng win. After all India would prefer facing them in SF or F rather a resurgent Pakistan.

The answer you are looking for is NRR. Rather than chase 337 and lose by 150 runs, India decided to score as much as possible to keep the NRR healthy. Even if India lose against BD and Lanka, based on current NRR they are above NZ and way above Pak. By now it is clear to any team that qualifying for SF should be the only goal and not ranking from 1-4. Once in SF you have 25% chance of winning. Kohli does this in IPL also when instead of chasing hopeless target they just score enough to keep NRR high, in case it turns out to be vital.

England has to win both remaining matches (Ind and NZ) to qualify. Time and again Eng has proved that when it matters they don't deliver. Aus has won last 14 of their 15 matches.

Some phenomenal matches in the last two days. 1 - Lanka defending 230 something vs Eng 2 - India defending 224 vs AFG 3. WI vs NZ. It was hard not to feel bad for WI. After some boring and one sided matches, great matches.

Chasing 337 will be beyond their capability. Hard to chase that total against any team.

Aus whupped Pak ass 5-0 in their adopted home. May be Aus is bouncing back and this makes them a serious contender for the WC.

And also one of the most boring to watch. Watching that robot like perfection in line and length with no reverse swing or pace and bounce can only hold interest upto a limit. Akram was more interesting though less successful in test cricket.

Actually 6wkts per match has already been achieved by Muralidharan who took 800 wkts in 133 test. But between the two I would pick Yasir any day.

YS is an absolute delight to watch. And for a change a Pakistani bowler with no questionable bowling action or ball-tampering. He is on track to take fastest 200 wkts in the last 75 yrs and deservingly.

LOL. I am rooting for Trump just to irritate liberals.

The comparison is far from valid. Tendulkar's 10000 runs were scored between 1989-2001 when the likes of Ws of Pak, Ambrose/Walsh from WI, and top Aussie bowlers were bowling. Plus the wkts in those days gave bowlers some chance. VK is the best today, but I am not sure blanket comparisons across generations. BTW notice that there is only one Pak batsman in 10K list. Just goes to show how Pak has produces great bowlers, but hardly any great batsman.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQlpeSLWC0g What a bowling? Truly express pace and that too against a batting line up you mentioned above.

A welcome result for a change. Draw has its own thrill, specially if Pak is denied victory :-) It is only when matches like this end up in a draw, does one realize the enormous shame in Pak's test record in Aus since 1996. They have lost each and every test in Aus since 1996.

"Under 30 overs would be my bet." You lost it. I accept Visa and Mastercard.

These days every team is a home bully only. Gone are the days of all conquering teams like WI of 1980 or Aus of 00s which use to win comfortably while on road.

Pakistan has a great tradition of top class bowlers, right from Fazal Mehmood. Upto the Ws (I am not 100% convinced that they achieved reverse swing thru legal means - * ) no one had a suspect action. The first bhatta was Shoaib A who otherwise was a magnificent sight to see. Shoaib would bowl normal many times, but slip in few bhattas now and then. On the spinner sides, Pak has produced more chuck bowlers. * In the http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/15864/scorecard/63828/india-vs-pakistan-1st-test-pakistan-tour-of-india-1998-99 test as India went from 87/5 to 217/5 (chasing 270) and Tendulkar on a 100, the desperation of Wasim was so much that he was vigorously applying cream from his forehead on one side of the ball to keep it shining and assist in reverse swing. Gavaskar as the commentator was pointing it it out "is it legal?". Cricket laws allows saliva / sweat to be applied on the ball, but not foreign objects like sun cream.

Why do Pakistani bowlers have a disproportionate large number of bowlers reported for chucking? A serious question.

But Sirji, Bilal Asif chucks. I just got a whatsapp from someone who is watching it and says he is a blatant chucker. He was already reported few years ago.
