    We are in 2013 not 1960 where keepers are picked only for keeping and in Kamran case, one excellent catch in a year.

    Couldn't agree more. We are not in 1960s and Pakistan in 2012 still does not have a 'proven' wicket keeper within domestic cricket who can keep and bat. In fact we do not even have a keeper who can keep let alone bat as well.

    All we have is broken options. One is playing for Pakistan. Will you moan n groan. I am enjoying the game. That is all that is to me. A game of cricket. There is a winner and a loser. Entertainment. Enjoy it!

    Wonderful glovework by Kamran, he was under a lot of pressure. Faced a lot of critics: Ramiz Raja


    Ramiz Raja was reading Passionate Pakistani's posts, I think. :p

    Either you want him or dont want him.

    Either you are a male or a female.

    You seem to be at middle in both cases.

    I am just having fun...for two reasons.

    1. When Pakistan starts playing. I will support the team and always remain optimistic. long as the match is on going...I am supporting everyone within the team regardless I like them or not.

    2. All I had said within this thread was...long as the keeper does his job keeping I am fine. So he has done that today so I am happy.

    His keeping has been good.

    His batting has been bad.

    Do whatever you want with him.

    Firstly, Kamran didn't do something extraordinary. It's a sign of how bad he is that we're commenting on him DOING HIS JOB!

    Secondly, he just slogs brainlessly. I get Afridi doing it because man has power, clears boundaries and is a proven hitter. Is that true for Kamran?

    Last, check his average this year.

    And as for the catches and stumpings, is that NOT HIS JOB? Are we celebrating a player taking a catch?

    Kamran kept very well today in fairness. However this should be an end to the "no keeper in Pakistan can bat like Kamran" hype.

    65 now, dropped Ashwin today


    Saeed Ajmal to Ashwin, no run, tough chance missed, that was a tossed up delivery from Ajmal, dipped on Ashwin, who got a thick outside edge, strikes Akmal on the pads

    We should ask Umar to try the gloves so that we can try another batsman instead.

    More takes than runs. Now why'd we bring him in for Sarfraz? Surely, Sarfraz wasn't dropping stuff. Oh wait, he scored more runs in Asia Cup. Can't be batting.

    Can Kami bowl? KingOfDoosra Pakistaniboy
