3:45 PM: Two maidens in a row. One each to Pathan and Patel. Burton 0, Sewdial 25. Interesting statistic - Sewdial's 25 had 3 fours and 1 six. Uncharacterstic maidens considering that statistic. But Sewdial has a big responsibility now. USA remain 86-5 after 23 overs.
Make that three maidens in a row! 86-5 after 24 overs! Tense or what!?
this is where you are tested as a player...i know greg can do it....he just needs to pick the strike as the most experienced batsman......the team has to keep the messages going out there to him ..so he keeps his kool...becuase i know him he like to blast his way out of pressure
3:52 PM: 90-5 after 25 overs. Burton 1. Sewdial 28. Pathan 6-1-17-1. Patel 7-2-22-1.
3:54 PM: USA 93-5 at end of 26th over. Burton 4. Sewdial 28.
I'm not sure if Naseer got picked for the NW regional Mens team .Seattle / NWCL have beaten the NCCA in 2008 and 2009 to be champs back to back for the NW region Title traveling to California both times, but its still hard for us to get a descent quata in the regional team ? No sour grapes just more motivation to beat NCCA yet again in 2010 !
3:56 PM: Runs trickling in 1s and 2s. That is fine. We will take that. Fireworks can wait until after the match.
USA are 94-5 after 27 overs. Burton 5. Sewdial 28.
Right now Usa lacks one thing
PACEEEEEE...the bowlers i have faced in jamaica at the uner 19 level bowl like 81 80..US bowlers arnt that qiuck but they have the swing..we need to develop that in our cricket cause as you can see so far ...we have a bag of spinners that can turn the ball east and west and all around the world.
Watching Brighton Watamba running in on matting in Florida at 80 miles plus an hour and saying why do i even bother trying to bowl pace .... The matting and run ups we play on do pace bowling no justice.
28th over by Gunasekara yields 4 runs. 98-5 then after 28 overs. Burton 9, Sewdial 28. Guna 1-0-4-0.

30th over yields 2 runs. USA reached 100 for 5. Burton 10. Sewdial 28. Guna 2-0-6-0.
yes true ...but we need it for the international stage and the batsmen's practice too..becuase you cannot learn to bear hot water by only experienceing warm water.
zniazi i was at that tournament and i dont know about any bowler that fast they all were around 70...unless he played in the other side of the competition
well if he plays there then maby i will get a chance to face him...if the let me open for the north east
