    Nah, the status=wtf just tickled my funny bone. Not that I'd be surprised if SS did make it big in some way.

    I read a statement of Abdul Qadir who advocated inclusion of Rehman in place of Danish saying that rehman was better with the ball, bat and as a fielder than Danish.

    I think Danish will play first matcha gainst the WI (as Afridi) will miss it, and if Danish gets hammered like he always does then it might be his last match of WC, and after that he can say goodbuy to OD cricket and stop whining and behaving like a victim.

    It's nothing about Shoaib AKhtar here I repeat !!!!!!!!!
    Damn man
    If my memory serves me right, the selectors clearly wanted to give a more deserving all round leggie in Mansoor Amjad a chance in OD cricket, it was none other than Inzi who stood against it as he thought that Danish would feel insecure.Inzamam has all along been a die hard supporter of Danish, its just that Danish always came up with nightmarish figures in OD matches otherwise he would have been in the team.

    Kudus to Indian selectors for giving young blood a chance, guys like Ramesh Powar,UThapa, Chawla & Raina were tried and most of them were a success.In contrast Pakistan never give exposure to its emerging players and kept faith of tried and tested failed one's.Under 19 WC heroes like Anwar Ali and Jamshed were never tried, they surely wouldn't have done worse than Mohd Sami. Mansoor Amjad and Shahid Yousuf are two other cricketers that should have been given a chance at international level

    Pc the f'in b = Dumb guys ! They did listen to me , but incompletely . I sure said that Kaneria should be in the side but think a thousand times before sending him to the WC ........
    So far my stances and prophecies (Things that I have been publicly backing up and my predictions)
    1. Shortage of ODI overs (Partially fulfilled and actually they messed it up by introducing a T20 version)
    2. Shoaib Akhtar = legend (status=fulfilled)
    3. Pak - Eng series = results unacceptable (status=fulfilled)
    4. disaster prediction upon watching Hair (status=fulfilled)
    5. My stance was to sack him (status=fulfilled)
    6. Shoaib Akhtar be sent to SA (status=fulfilled)
    7. Kaneria to be picked up in the squad . (status=fulfilled but dumb guys picked him up so so so quickly and should have waited for the end of WC)
    8. I*** = vague captain (fulfilled)
    9. Younis = future disaster as a captain , (status=in progress)
    10. SS = future legend of cricket media (status=wtf)
    11. Shoaib to be set free (status=fulfilled)
    12. PCB = worst performing board (status=in progress)
    Well dont have enough time to go through the pages of Cricinfo or urdu newspapers .......

    I was searching for the Kaneria related threads because I hate these "underrated" titled threads . But seriously don't Pakistanis need him now in the ODI squad ?

    Just re-read this thread, had forgotten it was the one that had given us the greatest quote (in a genuine sentence rather than a single letter) of CW history.

    Mohammad Asif, Umar Gul, Shoaib Akhtar. I'd say he was their 4th best bowler at the moment (not too sure about the injury status on these players, but as far as I know they are all fit and healthy).

    Averaging almost 34 over an entire Test career is poor, especially considering that figure jumps to 37.09 when you exclude the cheap wickets he has taken against Bangladesh. He doesn't bring much else to the field either, as his batting and fielding are poor too.

    What's more, when you consider that early in his career he showed promise, and indeed delivered in a variety of different circumstances, he has been hugely, hugely disappointing in doing virtually nothing of note of late.

    The same flaws that were apparent that needed to be eradicated have never gone away: lack of patience (despite good skills with accuracy that have been demonstrated often enough) and lack of a sufficiently large-wripped Leg-Break. His Googly remains the best in the business, but when the standard Leg-Break turns so little, even on dry surfaces, this is seldom of use.

    Obviously, Pakistan's catching is never going to be helpful. But I am fast losing hope of him emulating even the relatively fleeting success of Mushtaq Ahmed, never mind being the superior I had once hoped from him.

    He can't even crack Tests at the moment, FRAZ dude.

    Only since he has been dicking around with his action and trying to bowl six different types of balls an over. Kaneria, up until about 2005 was a really talented spinner, who could be wicket taker or dry up an end up for days but unfortunately he can't even do that now.
