    Quite like old times

    And it would have been an even tougher call if Asif & Aamir hadn't got themselves banned.

    I'm astonished at the lack of quality quicks in the over 30s though. They'd do better if it was a one-day side, with Lee and Gul coming into contention.

    Gul has kids more likely to be 27 than him.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    No question and I have no doubts Abdul Razzaq is closer to 40 than 30 and if you believe former Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson, Afridi is somewhere between 35 and 40.

    yeah most Pakistani cricketers have their wrong ages given. You'll see it less often now since the country is switching to more electronic forms of documentation
    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

    "Many a good tune is played on an old fiddle". Having said that over 30 does not mean over the hill and ready for retirement. Colin Cowdrey and Bobby Simpson are living proof of that. So I think I would have to back "the oldies" purely for sentimental reasons.I stopped playing Grade myself at 42 when off drives became late cuts
