Aus-Pak 1st ODI : White-wash

To easily describe the 1st ODI between Australia and Pakistan, it was "White-washed". Battig first Pakistan put up 274 thanks to some big hitting in the end by Shahid bOom boOm Afridi, who scored 48 off 26. Butt batted well for his 72 but, it was Younis Khan who scored 46 off 74 balls scoring jus one boundary in the 74 balls' innning. Wreckers in chief were Shane (Twat) Watson 4 wkts , Clint (eastwood) McKay 3 wkts and Douggie (brown) Bollinger 2 wkts. 274 looked very competent total considering Pakistan has a better bowling attack than Australia at the moment.

Presumably, Asif & Aamer kept things quiet and tight. They were rewarded with the wickets of the openers. Picky Ponting & Pup Clarke then started the building phase. Ponting fell to Afridi, entered Cameron White. From here White took the game away from the Pakistanis. His ton came off just 80 deliveries. Clarke made a working-class 50 and then got out. Pakistan needed a break through when these two were at the crease. The wicket came a little late, Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin helped put the final pieces of the puzzle in place. Yet, another Aussie victory! Aamer bowled well, Asif looked good too. One expensive over from Afridi (21 runs) turned the game on its head. Stay tuned for more "Wah".
