With Pakistan, you never know what to expect. This has been the case with the country’s cricket for ages. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Pakistan is as unpredictable as the T20 format, which makes the two a deadly duo
The day began with Younis Khan announcing his shock retirement from ODIs, just days after he was recalled for the one-day series against England. The next task for Pakistan was undoubtedly to announce that they would like the win the first ODI at Abu Dhabi for him.
West Indies held their nerve to clinch a 2-wicket win over Pakistan at The Oval. The World T20 Champions had to battle it out against a strong Pakistani bowling attack which comprised of three left-arm quicks bowling over 140 kmph with disconcerting bounce along with the guile of offie Saeed Ajmal.
While keeping the merits of inviting Pakistan for a short tour aside, I think Christmas Day at Bangalore produced an interesting cricketing contest. Both India and Pakistan keep on producing thrilling games against each other probably because the two teams have their shares of problems and strengths to come up with see saw kind of battles.
