I wish Pak should win not England | Shane Watson Talk outside MCG | Pakistan England Final
I think my heart hope
Pakistan wins. I really don't want the English to win. it's a big challenge for
Pakistan to be able to try and break through their mid, um, their top order in particular because they have a lot of match winners with one more bat compared to
Pakistan, um, but I'm definitely going to
Pakistan if you think about it. about Barbara, why because when they're there, it's so hard to contain that it's so technically correct that it seems like they're not really taking risks when they go and score so freely, so and they're also a very good foil together because Barbara it's more just hitting loose balls whereas Griz takes the game a little bit more in different spaces so oh you wouldn't break that because when they go like I showed you in that in the semi in New Zealand it just doesn't take the game away from the opposition against the world class bowlers everyone is desperate for a result today um nobody wants to come back for the um for the rest day so I'm so good I was hoping to get here today and it'd be raining just with the forecast of the way it is so hopefully the rain stays away enough that I can get a full game in more of a small game kind of way but not everyone has the fingers crossed that's for sure oh absolutely those guys are amazing especially showing Afridi that first very rarely is he's not in the first ball of money at the start of the tournament that he wasn't because he's coming off injury and stuff totally understandable but that last game really found its groove so english batsmen are going to have to be ready to play first ball because
Shane Chef Freddy's bowling 150 playing pace he did for me in a PSL game and I only faced one more He was walking back so he knows how to do it inc very well yeah uh they were lucky things went down but that's not just one individual who is collectively in tournaments those are the things you need to drop to times to be able to go into those knockout games and then put on a performance like they did against New Zealand so nobody doesn't at the end when when the team wins the win is announced. oria no one cares what their team's journey is really until the
final all that matters is how they play in the
final so um it's certainly been a bit interesting that they weren't up there
Pakistan wasn't really able to pick themselves up march but things fell their way said south african game without the netherlands beat south africa no one yet can really understand that happening but in the end
pakistan have had a chance to be able to play the game they did against new zealand because it was a very dominant display so if they bring that game back tonight then they are going to be very tough to beat would it be right to see if um world class bowling versus that oh yeah its as simple as that and is that where the game will be won or lost if
pakistan is quick? the bowls in particular can really do some damage in that higher order in english so that's their way of being able to win the game but if they don't it's going to be a struggle just their opinion I guess the massive one in South Asia Crowds that we've had in this tournament, the atmosphere, yeah, look around you right now, what is it, what has it been like for you and how do you see that in terms of my speech?
Well, I just know how passionate India and
Pakistan are, um. the fans are and obviously the bangladeshis, afghans and sri lankans too but you see the huge number of indians and
pakistani that are here in australia and they come to the games i know its a passion that its here i have been i have been enough lucky to go to
Pakistan and play in the PSL to go to India and play the IPL so I know how much passion and how many numbers there are also who absolutely love the game and we are seeing that in this T20 World Cup so with Australia even the australian games they were pretty poorly attended compared to
pakistan indian games they are like local home games for them so thats the way the world moves its exciting and only one i think no with my experience there's no real problem yeah there's a little a little um there's a little bit of a hangover from what happened with Justin Langer whether it's players whether it's also the way that that situation was handled, um, of the previous players, even with their frustration with creating Australia and how they handle that as well, so um, yeah, um, it's not a problem if there's a relationship between a pair of players and a pair of passing players.
I know that it would be solved because in the end, the passing players who love only want the Aussi. The Australian boys team to be as good as possible. Questions please foreigner. As much mental energy as you can so that when it comes game time you are ready to play and you have all your mental energy because it's very easy to overthink what could happen how big the event is how big the game is going to be and , before you know it, you've been overthinking and working through all the scenarios you might have to worry about, so I think most players will be very conscious not to think about anything else, so um, so , when they reach the middle, they will be able to access all the abilities they have, what is the key to victory today, look for two opening parties.
Partners, yes, the big fast bowlers.
higher order whoever to me whoever wins that battle we will win we will win the game so because
powerhouse higher order of
is so good if they get going but that is also
pakistan strength is his fast bowling especially
Shane Shafri in the last game he really started to find his Mojo after being injured it takes a bit of time for you to align your body and get it all working in sequence against him you certainly did against New Zealand , so you'll be ready to give it a try, Josh. battle in particular too
