Taylor went nuts.

The bowlers were did themselves a disservice in bowling full tosses. I even saw a ball that was full and wide.

-9fA

I'm Pakistani, and I was so f**king pissed watching this game. I woke up at 1 in the morning to watch this game.

Pakistan's wicketkeeper is a piece of s**t too.

The dude needs to get his ass kicked in the locker room. How do you drop Ross Taylor twice??? I couldn't believe what NZ did in the last 5-6 overs, I don't think I've ever seen anythin' like it.

Are you Pakistani? I heard that he has sources within the government of Pakistan and that is why he got a spot on the team.

No, I'm not. I didn't start seriously following cricket till few years back when I had to go to London, and then India for work. I really enjoyed watching it and playing it with co-workers.

I usually support India (ppl are nuts about cricket there, and my co-workers took me to a game for the first time) and New Zealand (like the all black unis).

I like Pakistan's team too - they're always fun to watch because they are so unpredictable. I was upset when I found out Aamir (the 18 year old opening bowler) got involved in match-fixing. I really liked watching him bowl, he was on of my favorite bowlers playin' these days. Wasim Akram is my favorite bowler of all time. I never watched him live in a match, but watched some old games of his, and youtube videos - AMAZING. Sachin is my favorite batsman...can't believe he is still playing.

Yeah, I hadn't seen cricket for almost 11 years prior to watching the world cup this year, but I still understand the game.

You are correct. Pakistan is very inconsistent and unpredictable. One match, they will play as if they are unstoppable and championship caliber, and the next, they will look like utter s**t. The team is also very corrupt; way too many match fixing and spot betting scandals. My favorite bowler of all time is also Akram. Mushtaq is a second.

Yea, it's sad, because I think their team is as talented as any in the World. Batting line-up is a concern, but bowling is top notch but their top 2 bowlers are suspended due to match-fixing.

Yeah I'm a Pakistan fan , but I still think that India has the best team in the world, or at least tied with Australia for best.

Too bad they blew that HUGE lead against South Africa the other night. It sure did seem like they would hit 400 runs if they kept going at it the way were until the 25th over.

I was watching that...what a total disaster. How do you lose 9 wickets for 30 runs? They could have still won it - should have gone with your best bowler in the last over.

It's lookin' like India vs. Pakistan in the QFs.

If the ball bounces before it hits the fence - it's 4 runs. If it the ball flies over the fence without bouncing (after the batter/batsman hits it) - it's 6 runs. If he is caught (twice dropped by the catcher/wicket-keeper) - it's out.
My team Pakistan just ended Australia's win streak of f**king 34 WC games today! I'm calling the final to be India vs Pakistan. You can guarantee that a couple of fans will get knifed in the seats if that game happens lol

Pakistan is playing great. India not so much. I don't see them gettin' past Australia if they have to face them in QFs.

Only 1 and done if we draw an obscure and crap team!

That being said, our one day side is nowhere near as good as the test team right now.

I think you guys are going to play Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. Ouch. Then again, England has played well against good sides.

I agree, the English test team is pretty good, but the true test will be this summer when India tours England. India's test team is at the top right now. Australia is the opposite of England - really good one-day team and an okay test team.
