I think Pak have a very very good attack, esp for English conditions. The onus will be on their batters to back their bowlers up in England. And Naveed should be in the side. Asif, Naveed, Akhtar and Razzaq would be a very good line up, EVEN if it means dropping Afridi. Or maybe they can keep Afridi and drop Kaneria on a seaming pitch.
Asif looks an excellent prospect, though. Reminds me of Gillespie because of his height, his ability to cut the ball both ways and his more than decent pace.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
