@AzlanKhan7: We will try out Anwar Ali, Asad Ali and Zulfiqar Babar in the future, but at this moment, there place is not guaranteed. - Iqbal Qasim
@AzlanKhan7: Shoaib Malik has performed very well since his comeback into the side. He has steered the team in difficult situations. - Iqbal Qasim
@AzlanKhan7: Younis Khan needed rest. We haven't written him off. He will be considered for selection later on. - Iqbal Qasim
@AzlanKhan7: It is up to the selectors to take him (Afridi) into confidence and boost his morale. - Iqbal Qasim
Tested and tried failures.
@cricket_U: PCB to send ”vigilance expert” along with Pakistan team to England to avoid any potential match fixers around the team. [Good move by PCB].
This is in the one with Shoaib Akhtar.
Note, this is tape ball
Does it matter?
Tbh I cant care less for what they do with a tape ball. Should focus on doing it with the leather.
This Rana Adil who clocked 157kph with a tape ball clocked 138kph with a cricket ball.
Still very good.
iAd Pakistaniboy is president cup final tomorrow?
lol what kind of schedule is this?
Weird stat. Kieron Pollard with the ball has 39 one-day wickets at 37.4 on the international level. Overall in List games, Pollard has 69 wickets at 27.3. Now the interesting bit is that in his non-international one-day games, Pollard's 30 wickets have come at 14.1 apiece. Suddenly he turns into Sydney Barnes on the WI circuit
@cricket_U: PCB has announced one-month salary bonus for its employees while the players remain unpaid for last four months.
Plus this is the seccond year in a row that PCB have delayed Central Contract announcement for almost over 5 months
And then people think they will be able to launch PSL...
They'll forget to order the kits if they ever do organise it :lol
@faizanlakhani: Camp for fast bowlers to commence tomorrow in Karachi, Wasim Akram & Muhammad Akram will enhance skills of 18 bowlers in this 10-day camp.

"Every captain has it's style, Misbah is a defensive captain and mentally very strong" - Umar Gul
"In my opinion the most talented batsman in Pakistan is Ahmed Shehzad, I rate Asad Shafiq highly too." - Umar Gul
"My biggest regret in my career was the 2011 WC Semi Final vs. India. I bowled very well throughout the tournament." - Umar Gul
"I want to bowl at 145kph+ after recovering from my Injury." - Umar Gul
good job KingOfDoosra keep helping iAd
I want to stop scoring ducks Shahid Afridi
"I have been offered captaincy at times, but this is not the right time for me. In future I may accept captaincy." Umar Gul
^ I dont think alberto will like that much.
"Every captain has a different approach. Afridi was aggressive, Younis was attacking and
Misbah is defensive.
Afridi was quite defensive as captain too.
Only Younis was attacking.
Afridi was the best captain, batsman and bowler while he played
But he made up for it being an attacking player.
Boom Boom Zindabad!
Talking about captaincy only.
If Misbah starts to play aggresively, but still does the same faults with setting defensive fields + negative tactics will mean that he is a defensive captain regardless of what he does individually.
Thats why Afridi was also a defensive captain.
Afridi was the best captain we ever had after Imran
Afridi is beyond stats, he's an enigma who wins you game. That's why he'll always be a notch higher than mortals like Tendulkar and Bradman
