Pakistan vs Kenya Tomorrow!

Pakistan's 2011 World Cup Campaign commences tomorrow when they take on Kenya in their opening fixture from Group A. It is highly significant that they set the tone, seize the initiative, set the standards and gain a moral boosting win in order to kick start their tournament where they stand a reasonable chance of realistically actually going the distance which is not at all beyond their sights and capabilities.

However, lets bear in mind the opponents we are playing actually reached the semis in the 2003 World Cup and we all have flashbacks of what happened on St Patricks day in 2007 where the Irish eliminated Inzamam's side in the preliminary stages. Therefore, complacency is never an option and Pakistan must ensure they turn up and deliver the goods.

My Line Up

Shehzad, Hafeez, Younis, Umar, Misbah, Afridi, Razzaq, Wahab, Junaid, Akhtar, Ajmal.


  1. ‎-Tomorrow Pakistan will thrash Kenya by 150 runs and Shehzad will get a big one!
    -On Thursday Pakistani born Imran Tahir will make his SA debut against WI.
    -On Friday the Kiwis will end the Aussies WC winning streak.
    -On Saturday Pakistan will beat Sri Lanka following Younis Khan’s century.
    -On Sunday somehow England beat India!

  2. btw my predictions were as follows just to remind everyone:
    -Finalists: South Africa
    -Semis: Sri Lanka and Pakistan
    -Bangladesh reach the quarter finals
    -Imran Tahir is the leading wicket taker in the WC
    -Shehzad and Misbah are the leading run getters for Pakistan
    -Wahab Riaz will be Pakistan's leading wicket taker!
    -Spin will play a massive role
    - And Pakistan CAN go the distance...but are not favorites in my eyes
