Yeah, I thought too....Pathan's record so far without help from Bangladesh?
However, keeping on-topic....Shoaib is simply a GREAT bowler, they are the facts, and I am speaking unbiasedly. If he had a temperament that was more perseverant, less-willing to give up the fight when things are against him, he would be MORE of a match-winner, instead of producing good results in losing efforts. Although, it would be handy if Pakistan could find a decent test bowler who can support him at the other end.
