    Wahab has the capability with bat too... just that he usually bats worse than Courtney Walsh

    Only chance is if Asad hits out and suddenly takes us to within 20odd

    not sure what to make of shafiq's innings

    by all accounts its a great effort

    but he has done it so many times before where he has taken us near the finish line and got out

    but if you look at it individually its a great innings

    The value of the innings became zero the moment he failed to finish the game.

    Did you know that you have to go back 115 years to find a score lower than Sri Lanka's third innings total of 96 runs for a team that ended up winning the game? It's not like Russell Arnold has said it about 20 times in the last 5 minutes.

    Ofcourse others are to be blamed too. Asad as a senior batsman and well set should have finished this game.

    Sri Lanka are winners,pak can't cope with Batsmen like Dickwella and he has been a big player.

    Overall it's been a good series,Bit disappointed on Azhar because he has been the big player but he hasn't gone on to get 3 figures.

    As I said before and I will say again Sri Lanka have come to play cricket not watch our Faces whilst we beat them.

    Cricket is a great leveller.

    Atleast he's got some runs,

    If you want to see some improvement because the batsmen are so poor in domestic cricket,You have to have 8-10 regional teams with regional talent mixed with young U-19 players as well as good domestic players.

    Only then can teams compete and Talent will be given time to improve,E.g if a batsmen makes 10 and 0 in 2 innings in good competitive cricket if he carries on in that vain he will be dropped,In our domestic cricket you can't do that because there are 3-4 batsmen like that in most teams.And even if you drop a guy that is averaging 25 he will be replaced by someone averaging 20,when players averaging 35 are classed as the best batsmen of domestic cricket then it is a big worry.
