    I am joking.

    But only half-joking. Sadly, the Pakistan team - with Afridi's drill into the pitch, Shoaib and Asif's ridiculous "pardon" from the PCB in spite of obvious guilt, Shoaib's questionable action, repeated drug offences, mafia connections, discipline problems, ball-tampering issues and routine match-fixing issues - has tarnished its own image beyond repair. There is little nobility in a team playing a game like that, all the more so because they obviously don't lack talent.

    I find it pathetic and I'm allowed that opinion.

    Yes, you are allowed to your opinion on players. But you can't stereotype the whole country.
    I personally found it offensive and I'm not even Pakistani.

    I'm not stereotyping the whole country - I have a lot of lovely Pakistani friends. I'm only generalising the behaviour of the cricket team.

    To me, Miandad's achievements, for example, mean very little - he's in bed with India's most wanted terrorist. Who knows how he achieved what he did: through talent or coercion?

Will Sanath be bowling? We don't know if he can play as a full-fledged bowler now.
    Still he's a good 5th bowler, but we need someone in additional when playing India, as they are damn good against spin.

    Don't worry mate attacking Pakistan on these forums is a fashion statement these days. You are new you will get use to it.

    yup no other team seems to have any controversies.

    And can you back up your comments on the points I have highlighted, its very easy to talk **** on an internet forum atleast give some credible evidence to your accusations.

    The Dawood-Miandad Marriage

    BBC News | CRICKET | Malik guilty of match-fixing

    Really, there's evidence all over the internet.

    Yeah the whole world knows PCB is funded by Dawood Ibrahim, so I suggest lets put a ban on PCB with all the other terrorist organizations.

    It's pretty severe, particularly in the series of closed OT threads. Still, regarding cricket it just reflects the fact that there's next to nothing to like about them. currently

    I agree even I am not happy with the current state of the Pakistani team but despite this how can anyone justify this statement.

    It's got nothing to do with Shoaib. I was talking about the team's match-fixing issues and mafia connections, not Shoaib's. Maybe it wasn't clear from the original post.

    The bottom five can have both Pathans, Harbhajan, Praveen Kumar and Dhawal Kulkarni, with Ravi Jadeja and Sreesanth in reserve. This should help the second line players assume a frontline role and those a little out of form to play themselves back to top form before the NZ series.
    we dont have any practice matches in new zealand for us.so i dont think anybody is going to be rested.i hope sreesanth gets picked but i would rather he play in the duleep trophy to prove himself before the kiwi series.ravi jadeja is the highest wicket taker and 5th highest scorer(@72.9)in the ranji's.he could be our genuine all-rounder if he turns out to be a find.i would rather pick him than mishra for the 2nd spinner in the team.

    Since you are so paranoid with cheating and controversies I am sure you must be feeling that any team that is embroiled in controversies should not be playing the game.Just a few examples:

    Cricinfo - Dravid fined for ball-tampering
