If we think with our hearts then however hopeless Akhtar has been in the last half of his career, most of us would still want to see him get a chance to play in another World Cup semi-final. We'd want to see him revive his rivalry with Sachin and India. We'd want to see the Express leave the station one last time. But if we think with our heads, can we really afford a burnt out 145 kph bowler. Someone who looks like he's just walked out of a car crash after the 4th over he's bowled. If we need him at the death of the innings then he is too tired to bowl yorkers and ends up feeding the opposition juicy full tosses. So which way would you go? Play Akhtar or let him carry the drinks.
