    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.
    There's certainly no place for a specialist spinner like Kaneria or Arshad Khan in this Pakistan XI, only as a supersub. I consider Afridi essential to Pakistan's chances in one-day cricket. Not only is he one of their multi-dimensional players besides Malik and Razzaq, but he really strikes fear in the opposition. I'd say Inzamam and Afridi are the only two in the team who do that on a consistent basis (among the batsmen).

    If Gul remains fit, Pakistan have an excellent attack on their hands.

    It's excellent anyway!

    As for Asif, looks innocuous but bowls with a heck of a lot of movement. Offers something a bit different to the Pakistani attack and fits in very, very well. Looks like he could cut the ball on glass.

    He truly cuts it well. And excellent attitude too. I mean, Rana is a team man too and all that. But he has that certain quality that gets up my nose. Not so with Asif. He is very likeable in addition to being a good seamer
