Chilly Abu Dhabi

I am hearing that the temperatures in Abu Dhabi are nowhere near as warm as one might have expected.

Is this going to be good news for England?

Pakistan are playing great cricket these days, and our boys are looking rusty so I think we need to take advantage of any little bonus that comes our way.

Let's hope our top six batsmen are acclimatising nicely now, and we get this series back at 1:1 before the last one, and then surely the advantage will be with us? Lot to ask for, but here's hoping

Some nice stats there Afridi. Were those games played in chilly conditions too?
I just feel that a good old chilly day is going to help us who are used to it lol. Am I clutching at straws now ?

I read a blog on the bbc about the chilly conditions too - not sure how much impact that will have though, i think the tempearures rise well into the afternoon, so the morning session will be crucial if anything

Damn, does not sound good. I was actually praying for rain after the second day in the first test match

We have to deal with your spinner which we have not done yet. Not sure why we would cope better this time around, but will be following it closely

I expect England to play better against Pakistani spinners in this test.if they crumble again,contradicting my expectations then there are serious probs.

If we crumble again mate, then we lose the series, it's that simple. Everybody knows that we have an extremely talented set of players these days, and if none of them can work out how to play on the Sub C then so be it. I am intrigued to see how we bat tomorrow after those 2 fiascos we have produced already on this test tour.
