Is this 1 hell of an attack???
Is this 1 hell of an attack???
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."
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....
And in the process put paid to any Pakistan team unity.Akhtar will hopefully play again and put the FTBs like Marsh,Watson,Gambheer ack to their places...
Not really.Tanvir is improving day by day..
Wow, a whole 1 game...Ajmal had a gr8 debut against Indians on karachi track....
Aussie spinners matter to Pakistan how?Aussie spinners....
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.
Cant ever see Tanvir being successful with that action tbh.
Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
Imagine this attack for the Champions Trophy:
.. because it has about much chance of appearing there as the one listed in the first post.

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