ICC-CT logoBlackCaps are certainly among the most humble cricket teams ever seen. They have easily shown Pakistan the way to home. It seems that the team is very self motivated and highly disciplined.

Their was a huge debate on whether they could make it in the presence of big giants like Australia, India, Pakistan and SouthAfrica but they proved their metal. Now, the final match is going to be held at Centurion’s SuperSport Park on Monday against Australia. Both teams are fully prepared for the event. It will also bring the nostalgia associated with Anzac days. Anzac is the short form for Australia New Zealand Army Corps which were set up for a big fight while World War-1 and a loss of millions of lives was beard by both countries.

Vettori is very hopeful and determined to win. The Champions Trophy of this year has been fun throughout. Let’s all see what happens, who wins and who stands runners-up.

In the match against Australia, the team replaced Muhammad Asif with Imran Nazir and Muhammad Aamer was also replaced with Misbah-ul-Haq. Both players did reasonably well as Asif scored 41 which helped Pakistan achieve high scores. Misbah did good bowling by taking two wickets and gives 34 score in eight overs. The PCB’s selection commitee says that all the players are best and it is very difficult to choose the best among them.

Pakistan’s captain Younis Khan said “You are absolutely right. We have got selection problems as there are too many aspirants for the playing eleven. Every player who has represented Pakistan so far in the Trophy deserves a place in the team. But you cannot play 13 members.”

PIAn Invasion was made by some passionate Pakistani spectators in the Centurion on 26th September when Pakistan won the match. Some of the youth managed to cross over the barriers and ran into ground with big Pakistani flags accentuating the victory in all terms of ill-mannered behavior. The ICC has taken strict notice of this thing and some of the rebels are arrested. Such an incident was not expected because never in the ground was observed such a pathetic non abidance by the rules. The management of ICC Champions Trophy 2009 says that it has increased security apparatus to prevent such incidents in future. Although nothing bad happened but the fear was substantial to put a question mark on security details. South African grounds are vulnerable to such incidents because they don’t work on putting solid barriers to separate the ground from spectators. Those who are found guilty or will be, would be prosecuted as per South African legislation.
