I was thinking how do cricket teams prepare themselves for touring different countries for playing test matches. Like pakistan going to the west indies for playing test series. The team needs to pack their bags and fly straight to west indies. Upon reaching a designated hotel, they then head towards a stadium. Then theres perhaps a team meeting and strategy. After playing some time at the nets, there comes a loud noise as the crowd fills in. In the pavilion, when pakistanis come out in the open, they might seem to be taken aback by the alien crowd and the noise! Then perhaps even the food might not suit to digest! There might even be pollution!
After the toss, pakistanis might had taken to bowling!
Chris gayle just simple strokeplay might be hitting the fast deliveries of shoib akhtar to the fence! Its been 20 crucial overs, wasim and shoib are just wasting the swing! Then shoib bowls a wide and chris gayle inner edges onto the stumps. Its still 45/1. Then there is a bowling change and waqar himself starts bowling. Even saqlain mushtaq comes to bowl.
Then the scorecard after 2 days...
