    OK, so Riaz Afridi just debuted in the current match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, and he took Sangakkara's and Jayawardene's wicket.

    What's so "oh dear" about that? :P

    the only thing i can find remotely relavent is this extract from a live cricinfo scorecard after riaz afridi had come in as nightwatchman:

    Vaas to Riaz Afridi, OUT: after the bouncer the perfect ball,
    straight and drew Afridi forward and misses but the ball destroys
    his stumps as they fly out of the ground.

    Still(if this is it) it definatley does not warrant a thread being started.

    I guess he did his job, surviving until the last over before stumps.

    Mystifying thread with "oh dear"

    Saw Afridi II in U-19 WC, pretty good but there were better players

    I guess he is mentioned coz he took the wicket of Jaya and S'karra...(strong middle order)

    Its good that this is only 2 match series, else the selectors would be confused if Sami and Aktar were fit

    Another 19-year-old Pakistani chucked into Test-cricket with a reasonable average and a questionable economy-rate... surprisingly, so far this Test it's gone the other way around.

    Weren't there 2 or 3 Pakistan U19 players reported for suspect bowling actions? I don't think Riaz Afridi was one of them though.

    And besides no New Zealander would be able to watch the Pak/S.L match so Thierry can't have seen any footage of Afridi bowling.

    dammit, I swear I've got the right guy Tim. I remember the name from the under-19s, I looked at his pic and remembered the face. If I haven't I'll be embarrassed. Anyway, worst chucker I've ever seen televised at any level. If I've got the right guy
