    ...takin The Mick Out Of The Selectors...

    i mean what were inzimam and woolmer thinkin sendin in younis khan as an opener when they took three specialist openers with them plus with afridi in the side ,thats wat destroys players they did the same thing with asim kamal by sendin him at no3at faisalabad and now they thinkin bout droppin the poor guy from the australia tour
    how sad

    they wanted to play younis, and they had no other position to play him.
    number 3 is secured by malik
    4 is secure by inzi
    5 youhana
    6 razzaq
    7 afridi
    8 9 10 11 have to be bowlers plus the keepr, unless they played one less bowler...and against an indian batting line-up,that's not a good idea

    however, having said that, i think younis has the goods to be the one day wicket keeper for pakistan. haven't seen kamral akmal that much, but judging on his bating positing , i don' think he's a very good bat. how much better is hius keepin compared to younis?

    yeah IMO razzaq is more of a seven than six and afridi opening with that batting line-up is not the worst idea because that batting list has talent.
    i have always rated pakistan but they have never performed consistently, IMO they should arrange their ODI top 7 like this:

    1.Hameed/Butt
    2.Afridi
    3.Malik
    4.Inzy
    5.Youhana
    6.Younis
    7.Razzaq

    if younis can keep in the one dayers then they can both b in lower order and the opening slot could b taken by a specialist

    Unlikely as he's the only keeper in the selected probables!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    The keeping equivalent of Marmite - Bovril perhaps?

    i think he meant younis khan?

    afridi has batted well down the order, provides some fireworks......IMO, the openers should be hameed and butt (from what i've seen of butt so far), or otherwise, tafeeq instead of butt

    3 S.Malik
    4 Inzy
    5 Yousuf
    6 Y.Khan(WK)
    7 Razzaq/Afridi
    8 Afridi/Razzaq


    to have either afridi or razzaq at 8 is a very strong batting line-up..Of course they could also b promoted if quick runs are required....it's also a very flexible batting line0up

    Nope. He mistook for Kamran Akmal.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
