    Sami is back

    I semi-jokingly predicted it a few days ago in the PSL thread but it actually happened. So good. Deserves its own thread.

    Mohammad Sami and Sharjeel Khan included as Pakistan make changes to Asia Cup and World T20 squads | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    Wait until Pakistan actually confirm their squad first IMO. If he goes for plenty in the Asia Cup they might cut him before deadline.

    I'm actually so pumped for this. Nothing would be more randomly awesome in cricket than him actually performing this time.

    iirc he bowled such an awesome spell in Sydney 2010 and put aus on the backfoot. Only to see kakmal lose the match by dropping so many catches and missing stumpings run outs etc. Effectively ending Sami's career

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    lol. You probably need to take the place of JBMAC on this forum. He saw Bradman bat live and you watched Sami bowl live

    More importantly I saw Sami bowl well live. In a Test. That's pretty god damn rare! Definitely something to tell the grandkids about one day.

    That's true. It isn't everyday that an opening bowler who plays 35 plus tests who has an average of 52 bowls well. I mean who the **** do you get that bad of a bowling average?

    I guess Sami was much worse than he seemed.

    Its a little grim that they can't find better alternatives in 2016, but due to lack of options and never actually been that bad in limited overs cricket, he probably deserves a chance. Sharjeel brought into the squad is much more positive news, should never have been binned from t20 in the first place.

    wasn't he going down the shahzad route when he was binned?
