    I don't get Saeed Ajmal, he doesn't strike me as a wicket taking spinner and I don't see what he does that Afridi or Malik can't do.

    Surely this will be last hurrah for Shoaib; he looked awful against Sri Lanka. Though, good to see Arafat in the side, hopefully he is given the new ball.

    And Ahmed Shehzad comes into the side with a lot of hype. Looking forward to seeing him play and hopefully unlike the hype surrounding those two pacers who played against Sri Lanka (Khan and Talha), it is deserved.

    Yeah, he was in the squad for the abandoned Bangladesh series and from what I read, he was shoe-in for this series. Disappointing.

    Abdul Qadir, apparently...

    Chief selector Abdul Qadir said that he was impressed by the progress made by Shoaib as far as his fitness is concerned.

    "He (Shoaib) was bowling at 140 kilometres per hour today and his fitness looked good," said Qadir.
    Source: Rawalpindi Express still on track

    Ask Qadir and he will tell you that the Rawalpindi Express is ready to unleash his firepower against the Australians. “Shoaib was given a clean chit by the team’s trainers but we needed more proof,” he said. “We asked him (Shoaib) to attend a practice session where he was told to bowl four overs at a stretch. He bowled them at around 140 (km/h) while one of his deliveries even touched the 149 (km/h) mark.

    He was the only fast bowler, who didn’t bowl a single no-ball during that session. There is no doubt in my mind that he is fully fit,” he said

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Great now one bad game and they have totally forgotten about Talha who is much better then what he showed in the ill fated Lahore test and leave alone the fact thy continue to select Faisal Iqbal instead of deservng talents like Umer Amin. I HATE THIS CURRNT BOARD.

    Talha does have a pretty shocking OD record though, which I'm sure the selectors noted. He has 23 OD wickets at 36.56 with an economy of 5.81.

    Thats fair enough but would have kept him as part of the set up even if he was not to get a game.

    Perhaps - he supposed to be sharpish, apparently.
