Pakistan you beauty

Well folks what a disappointing final in terms of a contest but what a performance by the lowest ranked team in the championship - and to think we had the game against Pakistan in the bag! It was good Pakistan day and as all know, no matter how good you are, if it's good Pakistan day, it doesn't matter.

Couple of points to note with Pakistan is they are actually ranked below SL and got in by winning a few games not too long ago. This was a result of playing outdated cricket for too long (should be ringing bells for SL fans). The brought in some new talent and changed the complexion of the team. Fakaar Zaman the opener added some aggression at the top of the order. The in typical Pakistan style they bring a 18 year old leggie who played ahead of Yashi Shah and another seam bowler (man of the series) with less than 10 games playing ahead of their 3 left arm option. When you have real talent, things are much easier!

I would imagine Pakistan would fly past us soon which means we would slip to 8 spot only ahead of Zim and Windies with Afganistan and Ireland looming!
