    Afridi has a bit of talent with one thing - bowling quickish not-much-spinners. And lots of talent for throwing his wicket away.

    IMO, Pakistan cricket of the last 10 years would have been better off without him. No-one, even Shoaib Akhtar, has better epitomised the volatile nature of things. Afridi is rarely out of trouble if truth be told, be it external or internal. He has an overblown idea of his own ability and seems perennially to think he's a more important player than he is. He's never been anything more than a bit-part player.

    Shoaib, on the other hand, has always possessed some serious talents, but has also always lacked some other things crucial to success, most notably the ability to stay fit and to keep a level head. Many times I've thought "has he turned the corner?" Every time, the answer's been "no" and I've ceased to believe such a thing is possible a while ago.

    KARACHI: National cricket officials have been trying to trace enigmatic fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar but so far all their efforts have gone in vain.

    A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official told this correspondent on Thursday that he tried to locate Shoaib but the player remains elusive, a day after he was fined over indiscipline.

    “We have been trying to trace Shoaib but he has just disappeared,” Shafqat Naghmi, PCB’s Chief Operating Officer said.

    Naghmi said that Zakir Khan, the Board’s Director of Operations, also tried to get in touch with Shoaib but failed.

    The PCB official said that Shoaib is a part of the Pakistan team for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup and the Board expects him to play in the tournament.

    Meanwhile, PCB chief Nasim Ashraf has defended the Board’s decision to fine Shoaib after the bowler left the national training camp in Karachi without informing team manager Talat Ali.

    I would be surprised, but then again, I thought not.

    TBF, dude, your defending him is more predictable than Fusion's bagging of him.
