Hashim Amla on Mohammad Asif: "Mohammad Asif is the best one, I know he got banned for match fixing, but at that stage he was the best one I faced" "He was not quick, 135 maybe but his accuracy was phenomenal" "We played him is SA and in Pakistan in 2007 and he landed on off-stump, I didnt know if it was nipping away or nipping in. He tested your defense really to the maximum" "And funny enough as the years gone by meeting other cricketers around the world and chatting about it, so many of the guys said the same thing" "They say Mohammad Asif was the magician with the ball" Mohammad Asif: "I performed very well in last season, in 7 games took 45 wickets, but nobody has called out and totally ignored me, which is not fair. If you give chance to one person then it should be the same for others too. Its double standard of PCB and selectors too" "Even in SA too people are recalling my bowling, Amla & Peterson has also praised me, even AB also mentioned me in his book" "Its has been three years but I am totally ignored" "I haven't played much in this season, because I am ignored" "In SA our batting always used to struggle, but our bowling always used to give fight, but I didn't see that on this tour. We didn't out SA on 100,150 or 200" "We have bowled short of length on this tour" "I took most of the wickets on leg-before, caught behind and bowled, I didnt see this kind of bowling from Pakistan on this SA tour" "Our team had played two side matches but they didn't learn quick enough on this tour" "Our selection criteria is based on PSL only" "We are searching for Inzy, Yousuf and Younis. We have quantity but not quality. Similarly, we are looking for Shoaib Akhtar, we couldn't even find 140+ bowler, only able to find 135+ avg bowlers" "If you bowl at 130/135+ then bowler must have swing and seam" "In Test series we didnt see swing and seam, even though South African bowlers were able to swing and seam the ball, but when Pakistan used to bowl, then pitch used to become batting track" On 2010 Sydeny Test Spell: "Sami used new ball very well and took top 3 wickets. He as bowling with the wind" "By mistake I started but used the wrong end" "I asked Yousuf bhai than please allow me to use that end, and I took 6 wickets" "I am unable to see such match winning spells now from Pakistan. I dont see such threatening spell from Pakistani bowlers" "South African pitches were ideal pitches for bowling. We used to swing and seam in SA, but our bowlers didnt use it neither enjoy bowling in SA on this tour" "Bowling coach should've been taught how to swing and seam to our bowlers. He could have used old video before match or net sessions, work with bowlers. And same goes for batting" "Amir used to shape the ball very well, which we saw in CT game. He was able to bring the ball back to right hand. But we dont see it anymore" "Speed of our bowlers has been effected because of too much cricket and focus of our players is PSL. PSL is priority" "Selection committee has to make decision, which bowler has to play in which format" "We are not playing many Test matches" Bowlers of other teams also play in Test and T20 but it doesn't effect much their speed, but speed becomes issue only for our bowlers. I get the feeling that they want to save themselves for PSL" "I regret on what I did, but it has been three years and I performed very well on domestic. Selectors watches my games and they also appreciated my performance. However, I am very disappointed with double-starts" "All three committed same mistake than why give chance to only one?"
