CWC 2015 LIVE - Pak Complete Facile Win v UAE

#Pak v #UAE, #Napier

Pakistan complete a facile win against UAE by 129 runs.
This will be an immense boost for their chances to move to the next round of #CWC15

Their biggest test lies ahead in the next game, when they meet the super hot #SouthAfrica in couple of days time. That will be followed by game against #Ireland, another tough side. Overall, both games very crucial for them. The two wins (against Zim and today against UAE) will have been a good tonic for their confidence to play their last two games.

Having said that, there are lot of chinks in that batting and bowling lineups, highlighted today.
- Shehzad and Haris were unable to step up the gas in the #Powerplay overs leading to a mini setback
- Sohaib Maqsood, Umar Akmal and Shahid Afridi still havent faced enough balls in the middle to gain some much needed form against formidable opponents.
- Opening slot is a huge problem (Jamshid is failing to pull shot too often and Younis Khan isn't a natural opener anyway)
- Lack of quality batsmen in that middle order (although they are good strokemakers) will hurt them as the games get tougher.

 - The bowlers couldn't bundle out UAE (only 8 wickets were taken) cheaply and allowed game to drift. They need to stamp themselves on opposition team lineups.
 - The spinners are not in their own as yet. The SA game could just be that ignition needed to strike it rich. SA's weakness could just be Pak's opportunity with spinners.
 - Too may left arm seamers? Does that make it a predictable attack with less variety? Needs some thought.

Overall, a good win but the tough test lies ahead for them.
For now, they can enjoy the moment.

#LIVE #Score
Pak - 339 for 6
UAE - 210 for 8

CWC 2015 - Angelo Mathews - Sri Lankas GO-TO Man

Can handle crisis with superb ease.

Angelo is very analytical and has tremendous talent for unravelling complicated issues and situations. His life is actually problem free, and he is happiest when he is testing his own ingenuity; if life does not present him with problems to overcome his natural response is to seek them out. 

He is a life saver who is capable of restoring order and bringing in hope in depressing situations. The reverse is also true he has a habit of playing the devil’s advocate and injecting difficulties into simple procedures sometimes being disorganised can be harmful.

Angelo's greatest challenge is enjoying the ordinary, The way forward is to understand that that a fulfilling and happy life is not one of extremes but of steady, positive feelings about every aspect of his life even chores and routine.

To enhance luck its very important that Angelo makes every day special, understand that everyday in his life including those that are without highlights is unique and special. Never waste an opportunity to feel positive and upbeat about his life.

Learn that change begins from the inside out. Once he is able to understand the life changing fact that his destiny is to influence, motivate and inspire others with his resilience ingenuity and flair life will be super successful.

Power Thought:
“Everyday offers me an opportunity to learn something new about myself”

God Bless

CWC 2015 - Did England Lose Match At The Toss v Australia?

England won a great toss but chose to field. Did they lose the game there?

#EoinMorgan mentioned at the toss that he'd like to exploit overnight moisture at the #MCG early and inserted Australia in. Was it a fatal mistake? Big game, Tournament opener ... was it not a better idea to bat first and put runs on the board?

#GeorgeBailey was very happy to lose the toss and still get his choice - bat first. He mentioned the pitch would be great throughout and it did play true throughout the game.

Morgan's decision would have been vindicated greatly, if Aaron Finch would not have been dropped in the very first over on nought. He went on to make 135. Huge dent...

The specially minted #coin for the match toss is beautiful though.
