    Because Asad,Azhar,Younis,Misbah,Hafeez and Taufeeq are all better players.

    LOL at Toffee being better. He can't even play spin.

    I am a little restless now... Our order collapsed yesterday and yet we can't have a solid player who values his wicket.... Fawad, we need you!

    President Trophy Cup.. Scores 466 runs... Still not selected.

    Yeah because nearly 500 runs doesn't justify a selection whereas having family/paying the selectors does...

    Never got much support on this. Hardly check these days but his recent axing just made me lose the plot completely. This is pure discrimination from the PCB.

    yeah, but he should definitely be in the odi side. There is some problem that PCB seem to have with him
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    He's averaging 77 this year, there is no argument to support him being dropped (if that is indeed what this is rather than him being rested because they already know they want him in the WC first XI and are simply trying to sort out the rest or something)

    I just don't understand why noone isn't outraged? If he is indeed dropped, surely the whole CW community should share my sentiment?

    Fair enough. Was just giving my own impressions of him, that's all. I do remember him playing a damn good knock in the Asia Cup final, so yeah, he's probably hard done by.

    It's not too surprising though. I've heard nepotism runs deep in the Pakistani cricket setup. Take Shan Masood for example. His father is a member of PCB's governing body and he's getting undeserved opportunities repeatedly for absolutely no reason.

    That's more to do with the general lack of Pakistani membership and generally people who follow Pakistan's domestic scene. Pak and WI are very poorly represented here.
