Yesterday, (September 05th of 2012) was a great day for Pakistan. They beat Australia very very good game. Pakistna’s captain Muhammad Hafeez won the toss and elected to bowl first, which was a right decision. Australian’s batsmen were unable to face Pakistan’s great bowling attack. Once again Saeed Ajmal took 2 wickets with 13 runs in 4 overs. Sohail Tanveer was most successful bowler, he took 3 wickets with 13 runs in 2.3 overs.
In the other side Pakistan’s batsmen showed great performances. No Australian bowler was able to make problem for them. Shane Watson was trying to disturb Pakistan’s batsmen with his body language but Shoaib Malik hit him very good shots and he was not able to show his face to media. Very shame on him …. 🙂
Pakistan were at number 6 before playing this match. Now Pakistan is on number 4 position. Here is the list of T20 teams. (Updated on 5-September-2012)
- South Africa
- Sri Lanka
- West Indies
- New Zealand
If Australia lose one more T20 match then Australia will move on number 10. Even Ireland will be better team then Australia. I think Australia must leave T20 format game. They are unable to beat Bangladesh in this format.
Saeed Ajmal is consistent bowler since last one year in every format of this game and Tsotsobe played only one serious in last year against England and he is on number 3. How ICC calculate rankings. They must improve their method to calculate rankings. Now I also will talk about India. Why they are at number 5, they never deserve. They didn’t show any performance in T20 matches. Sachin Tendulkar is hardly to move his bat with pace is still playing and unable to show performance. Now he is over aged for this game, why he is playing in this cricket. I’ll discuss him later in my any other post.
