Great hat-trick by Pathan! Followed by some terrific batting from Pak, particularly Kamran Akmal.
Sachin seems to be struggling once again. Abdul Razzack seems to be a permanent danger for him. He is been bowled by the same bowler more times than probably any other? Moin Khan thinks Sachin is finished! (“Sachin’s controversial dismissal reminded me of a few batsmen who preferred walking off the pitch on their legs rather than being carried away on stretchers when the great Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis were at their brilliant best.” – Moin Khan reckons that Tendulkar bottled it at Faisalabad.) Sachin has done little this series to prove that he isn’t.
Dada has a golden opportunity to make a big score and bid farewell in style. In the interest of Indian cricket, I hope he makes a decent score and announces his retirement! (what are the odds of that happening? 🙂

What an unbelievable start to the Test indeed! However, letting Pak off the hook (after 39/6) is a sad thing. Batting can fail (Laxman, Dravid, Sehwag and Tendu so far) but letting Shoaib and Razzaq get so many runs on a helpful wicket is criminal. Really!For the second day’s play, look for Ganguly running out Yuvraj (his competitor for the Test middle order spot) early on, and then taking a long time to score a “gritty” 40 runs. Dhoni a quick 50 and Pathan 30. India all out 225. But, wait there’s more….! India will win this game. Prasad
Ganguly running out Yuvi is hilarious. The scary part is that it could come true!
