    I'm far from convinced by Tanvir. Haven't seen Ajmal.
    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."

    Tanvir was best bowler of IPL

    Ajmal has better DOOSRA than Saqlain/Murali according to Waqar Younis....

    Sohail Tanvir's ODI performances against ODI-class teams so far have been mostly very poor indeed. I'll be surprised if he's ever that good in ODIs.

    Shoaib will hopefully never play again, but I've thought that before. Asif I haven't a clue what the current situation is, Umar Gul is very poor in ODIs still, and I don't know a thing about these two latest fellows to be introduced.

    We're talking about the Champions Trophy, not League, so IPL form has precisely nothing to do with it. Sohail Tanvir does not look world class.

    Gul is the best death bowler right now....on par with Lee

    Akhtar will hopefully play again and put the FTBs like Marsh,Watson,Gambheer ack to their places...

    Tanvir is improving day by day..

    Ajmal had a gr8 debut against Indians on karachi track....

    Aussie spinners....

    And in the process put paid to any Pakistan team unity.

    Ajmal had a gr8 debut against Indians on karachi track....
    Wow, a whole 1 game...
    Aussie spinners....
    Aussie spinners matter to Pakistan how?

    I haven't seen him bowl and he's been operating on flat pitches in the Asia Cup, but what has Tanvir done to suggest that he's improving? He's played 5 matches this year and only once has he taken more than 1 wicket in 5 full 10-over spells. Yes, he took 5-48 in that spell, but has done nothing otherwise. Going for runs often. His record against ODI standard teams is poor, which (and I'm going to sound like Richard here) is hardly surprising given how poor his domestic record is. Rana Naved in a mirror, IMO.

    Regarding Umar Gul, I rate him as a bowler but nowhere near as good as Lee. Regarding Marsh and Watson, they've not exactly wandered out of their place. Neither has been outstanding at international level.

    Imagine this attack for the Champions Trophy:

    Garner
    Wasim
    McGrath
    Muralitharan
    Heath Davis

    .. because it has about much chance of appearing there as the one listed in the first post.

    Davis has the raw pace, but will never be ODI standard. Not accurate enough and his domestic record is distinctly average. And Joel Garner's done nothing in ODIs for the last 21 years.

    Yes it is a good attack but it has about a 1% chance of appearing.

    When I first saw him bowl I thought he'd be really good because of it because at the time he seemed unplayable. Then I watched him when he going at 6 and over and realised that once a batsman gets accustomed to his action it really isn't that great an advantage.
