    Batted well. Wish he hasn't slashed at that bouncer or he could have taken us to the win, but oh well..
    Bowling wise was doing well until that over..

    Anyways we're all gonna forget about this. Wasting our time arguing. T20s are time pass.

    Yeah but this is T20 not ODI cricket where you just go for singles and try to keep wickets in hand.
    Their intent was partially correct but still didn't go for boundaries. Its a T20 for heavens sake! You only have 120 balls to play with. Shehzads approach wasn't the best he was going no where with his innings. What was the point of playing with a strike rate of 90 when the Pakistani collapse is inevitable. a strike rate of 110-115 should be minimum in T20s.

    But not his fault entirely. Nasim and Haris didn't get going either.

    Well you can't chase a score in T20 if you all of your batsmen are playing under the rrr.

    I thought the bowlers as a unit did okay. Can't blame them at all.

    In the batting department Sarfraz was unlucky, Afridi played fantastically well and deserves no blame.

    Mujrims today are Ahmed Shezad and Saad Nasiim. T20 cricket is not the format where you have to 'rebuild' an innings with such diligence, Haris also contributed to the pressure that was put upon Pakistan but the other 2 are bigger culprits today.

    Both Shehzad & Nasim started off well. Their failure was that they failed to switch on when required.

    Pretty sure Shehzad & Nasim were rotating strike today not tuk-tukking.

    The started off well is pretty meaningless when they don't make the most of it. If they had hit the odd boundary or two then their innings would have been much better.

    They brought on pressure when their didn't need to be.


    But it's done. Now hope we do well in ODIs.

    In T20 anything short of 7rpo is tuk tuk and short of 6rpo is just criminal.

    And Shehzad only hit 1 four in 36 balls.
    Nasim hit 1 six in his 21 balls

    33(36) with 1 four. Meaning he scored 29 runs off 35 balls.
    And Nasim scored 13 off 20 balls.

    That right there is what cost us the match.

    If you look at New Zealand's scorecard, anyone who got set played with a strike rate of 100 or higher apart from Taylor.

    Looking at the game I got the impression, they were rotating strike well. But should have hit the occasional boundaries, which they didn't do.
    ComradeVenom I know it wasn't the best way to play in a T20, but they just couldn't take as many risks as they'd like to after the top-order performance. The top-order was the one to blame mainly

    Sarfaraz's dismissal was a blunder by the umpire but the likes of Hafeez, Harris, and then Saad should have carried on but they failed playing loose shots. Shehzad didn't do much either and again was sent back playing a wrong shot.

    It was a collective batting failure from the top order as Ahson Afzal has mentioned above and esp against mediocre bowlers like Devcich and Neesham later.

    Hated the lack of yorkers in his bowling. Dropped catches were implied to be the main contributing reason along with batting.

    mA, champion-e-tuk, the biggest culprit misses out #SurpriseSurprise

    So you're basically telling us that taking pace bowlers out of the attack when they were dominating Windies batsmen, is an achievement to be proud of?

    Lol what? He did bowl yorkers. It's not easy to bowl yorkers ball after ball, the margin for error is so small without reverse swing. Steyn, Johnson, Starc, Southee all would've got the same treatment. Pitch had such true bounce.

    Before the final over Wahab was 9 overs for 50 runs with FOUR dropped catches off his bowling alone. You understand what I'm getting at?

    I only remember two yorkers in our death bowling. I know dropped catches didn't help, but he could've targeted the stumps more.

    He definitely gets the blame for team selection, bowler changes and field settings.

    Insistence on Younus has utterly wrecked balance of the team.

    Late bowlin was poor, but it was excellent v India and Windies do have very powerful hitters

    I concur, Wahab had been extremely unfortunate especially his third, fourth overs iirc. he bowled badly at finish but far from only culprit or even main culprit
