Pakistan for the Champions Trophy

Based on what I've seen of the bowling attacks thus far in this Champions Trophy, I'd say Pakistan is the favorite to win. Their indiscipline in bowling wides and no-balls could still sink them, but the variety and skill on display is outstanding.

PS: If there is a weak link in their attack, it is Rana Naved, who has a tendency to pitch far too short at time.

I was actually surprised by the Windies attack which has certainly shown that they aren't as bad as everyone wanted to make out. I missed Watson's golden duck, but Roach was consistently hitting 94-95mph and both he and Tonge gave Paine a real working over.
I think Eng's bowlers would probably have Pak in trouble and ideally this is the final for me. It looks almost certain to be Aus, NZ, Eng and Pak at this stage.

Ach: You are right. I was surprised a bit too. I think England v. Pak would make for a decent final, but Pak would still blow England away :) (of course, England winning would quite possibly be the biggest turnaround in ODI history!).
