    Haha Imran is so harsh. I believe Imran and Miandad never really got along but somehow made it work for the sake of the team. Those were better times, people used to put the interest of the team before their petty conflicts and selfishness.

    watching the 92 WC final.. it was hilarious how Imran was simply walking away from Javed when he was trying to tell him something while batting together. Seriously, seriously remarkable that the two found a way to co-exist that long and not stab each other in the back as players when the other was captain.

    the two had massive respect for each other and the country to even think of doing that could make a brilliant movie subject.

    Imran was very much one of those ruling elites which he hates and condemns so much now while Javed came from the lowest strata of the society and was a people's man.Imran openly admits he was ashamed of that part of Pakistan, during those days he would take Wasim and Waqar with him as he wanted them to act and think like him and not move around with the rest of the team mates.Javed deserves a lot of credit of how things turned out as he was always backing him and never afraid of Imran taking the spotlight.

    I'd like to ask a question if I may (and apologies if it's been answered already) - why does Pakistan never play Bangladesh in Tests? Since 2000 they've met just six times, the last of those in 2003. Nothing lined up for next year either. You'd think Pakistan would be happy to tour there, they'd be reasonably familiar with the conditions, and could be fairly confident of a couple of wins. I'm assuming that they must have missed a series or two in the FTP. Is there a political problem behind it?

    .... and on a related point why have Bangladesh never played a Test in India?

    Good point - I know the calendars are crowded but it doesn't stop India playing Australia every couple of years and Sri Lanka even more frequently. If Bangladesh's neighbours aren't prepared to help them out and give them some games you have to ask why the likes of Australia should bother.

    Hmmm, OK, thanks - looks like a bit of tit-for-tat involved there.

    Yeah, PCB are doing themselves no favours with this attitude of theirs. They need all the support they can get at this point.

    It makes sense from a financial point of view - hardly anyone would turn up to watch a test match between Bangladesh and India here (and to be honest, you really cannot blame them).

    India aren't obliged any more than Australia to play Bangladesh just for reasons of geographical proximity.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
