Crowd at India Pakistan game are pretty vocal even at the toss. 100,000 ticket applications were made for this game.

Mon Pakistan. Can't stand India picking and choosing who they play tests against.

He's a chucker.

His elbow's not over-flexed and his arm is above the horizontal.

How's that chucking ?

The New York Yankees hat is a giveaway.

Needs to bowl either overarm or underarm not chuck it like a stone. Should have been chucked out of the game a long time ago.

This from the BBC:
"It is one of sport's biggest games and bitterest rivalries which is likely to draw a global television audience of one billion.
More than 700,000 people applied for tickets to the game."

I can't remember Pakistan ever not being shit at fielding.

I love these occasions.  Tebbitt can go fuck himself.

It's embedded historically in the team culture. They have dropped 8 catches so far in this WC matched by no one else but....shockingly England.

Looking like the PM was right, so far...

Yes he was and Sarfraz has messed up his decision making in every match so far. However PM has really lit the fire  by referring to his players as "Raillu Kattas". Loosely translated as aimless wandering buffalo calf and is used offensively to describe a wasteful young man.

Wondered what that was. Though he might be some bits and pieces bowler I've never heard of.

Sadly, this looks like a non-contest.

Scotland would have put up more of a fight.

It was going to be a deserved win for India in any case but DLS is hilarious. 170 needed off 15 overs is reset to 129 needed off 30 balls...WTF!

Cricket or specifically the ICC really does shoot itself in the foot sometimes. The cynic in me thinks that they went back out to appease the Asian TV networks and the quoted global audience of 1 billion. They should have shook hands and called it a day.

The ICC bowed to commercial pressures.

A commentator earlier, sorry canít remember which one, said that PM IK had spoken to the team pre-WC and said that pace bowling and taking wickets was key to success in England. They ignored him and went for spinners and just trying to stop runs.

Coaches and captain might want to take a long vacation before returning home.
