Pakistan vs South Africa: 4rth ODI Review

Written by Commoner on February 13th, 2007   (548 views)

For Pakistani cricket fans, as far as fourth ODI between South Africa and Pakistan was concerned, there was literally nothing to write home about. But for South Africas, it was a sublime day. They out-bowled, out-batted and out-fielded Pakistan in a perfect fashion. Pakistanis lost colour right after losing the toss and their openers (or were they closers?).

Thier also isnt much to review from the Pakistani side, as it was the same un-professional, casual, irresponsible and in-competent performance from virutally everyone. Even, the only sensible batsman Mohammad Yousaf got out in an un-celebrated way. Un-surprisingly Openers didn’t once again disappoint SA bowlers, especially Kamran Akmal made a clown of himself just before getting himself runout by Gibbs. Imran Nazir has successfully carried on the legacy of Imran Farhat in this match. Younis Khan was hopeless once again at a very crucial number 3 position. Inzamam-ul-Haq managed to get some batting practice. Shoaib Malik, after sticking out there for a while, was caught behind at leg side in a very casual manner. The notable thing was his callous funny smile after getting out. The two all-rounders came and went in no time. Nobody missed Shahid Afridi.

South Africa reached the cheap target of 108 with all 10 wickets remaining in a jiffy courteously to the flashing batting by captain Smith and AB Devilliars. They both smacked down Pakistani bowlers in a grand way. Smith and AB were all over them from the ball 1. It would be waste of precious blogging space to even mention who the Pakistani bowlers were.

During this whole saga, Pakistani Coach Bob Woolmer either was using his binoculars or his laptop for Allah knows what purpose.
