Pak vs England at Lords

A target of 380 on the last day and Pak played like India in recent times. The least Pak could have done was to show some intent to win. A good place to start might have been to open with Afridi or at least promote him in the batting order. Instead Inzy did a Rahul Dravid by playing for a draw and walking away with a better overall batting average.

What was Pak expecting? Monty and gang to bowl them out in less than a day? The defensive approach in Test cricket is mighty frustrating to say the least. If you are an Indian cricket fan, you have some consolation — There are other “gutless” teams around. Only the Aussies are capable of taking up a challenge of this magnitude.
