    Akhtar to make comeback

    Details here:

    Akhtar Recalled for Asia Cup

    Handdy bonus for struggling Pakistan or insult to Pakistani Cricket?

    Interesting

    Interesting - perhaps an English summer will provide a last hurrah for the Rawalpindi Express?

    Who wants to bet?

    I bet he wouldn't last Asia cup till the end.. let alone England tour..

    for me Pakistan lost shoaib akhter right after world cup 99.. he hasn't been the same ever since..

    If he wasn't such a tool, he could have been playing all along.

    Can bowl though.

    Nah for me, him being a tool adds to it all.

    Outshines even Afridi for just ridiculous stories year after year.

    He's like The Terminator... can't be killed. Always returns despite bans, soft tissue injuries, lockeroom fights and STDs

    Haha what a legend. Hope he makes it tbh. Despite the fact that he is clearly a bit of a deranged idiot and has what I would various catastrophic personality defects I have always liked him. Would certainly be interesting if he made a comeback, for better or worse.

    What a story. Against all odds he beat a debilitating case of genital warts to make it back to the top flight.

    They'll make a movie about this one day.
