    Ignored my post? Gonna post another song to the haters? Here's one from Gul

    Don't compare me to that hack
    Who thinks he can bowl and bat
    Bowling skills he lack
    Swing, he says, what is that?

    I am better than Wahab Riaz
    That no one can deny
    As sure as you like Cameron Diaz
    This song does not lie

    I won you a T20 WC, did I not?
    Don't give up hope, I'm gonna be back
    Don't compare me to this pathetic lot
    At least, I'm not a Riaz like hack

    Good poem but it does not change the fact that Gul is mediocre!

    Wahab, we will not lose hope in you
    You are our saviour, bring back our aggression
    Aggression, passion, fire, through and through
    There's everything in me, just trust my passion

    Haters will hate but I will play for Pakistan
    Trying my best, won't you trust me, please? I know
    Dark are the days now but I shall rise, a stronger man
    Support me now, you won't regret this, you know

    He's bowled really well uptill now. In his next 4 overs he'd better finish the job - Even if he doesn't he's had a good game with the ball today.

    Gul has played significantly more games hence an unfair comparison!

    This is just sad when fan of a one cricketer promotes his man by attacking another one.

    Riaz was our leading wicket-taker last time we played in WI, hopefully he can repeat that.

    Gul is an enigma,he bowls 150kmph yorkers on one day and rubbish the next,he gets hit all over the park then out of no where cuts one in sharply to bowl a world class set batsman,he can come in on a particular day and seam it in and out and look a polished class act and on the next be an average fast medium bowler......Wahab is a bowler who is one dimensional,left arm over the wicket angling it away at genuine pace but not consistent in line and length over the period of the days play, but what you will get from him is his 100% every over,every ball. :shrug

    As far as i am concurred, this should be his last International match for a while. I mean he couldnt defend 14 runs ageist Jason Holder, a tail-ender who averages 4 in ODI cricket.

    Takes a special bowler to give up 14 runs to two tail enders in final over.
