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
So Bari over Latif?

yes, Bari lasted much longer and was as safe as Latif, if not more. Latif probably the more spectacular one in terms of diving around but I'll be conservative with my team
yes the mention was in the breaking cheek bone but he got a mention because he was a very good player of pace bowling (along with some others) who got serious injuries (and I think he was talking about WSC at that point was he?). One of the better players of fast bowling from the SC I think.

Wasim Bari *
Apologies to Fazal Mahmood. Would have no objection to someone going for a lower order of Imran at 6, then Rashid (for the extra batting over Bari), Wasim, Saqlain, Fazal and Waqar. But to me I tend to prefer 3-pace, 2-spin combinations, particularly for sub-continental sides.
Younis Khan not everyone's favourite, but he did score a fair chunk of his runs batting at number 3. Javed, Inzamam, Yousuf, Zaheer.. look at their stats and none of them did well batting there.
But I digress - Majid's reputation as a dasher guaranteed a desire to watch Glamorgan bat and he was well worth the effort and, along with my great childhood hero Farokh Engineer, one of the very few sub-continental batsman we got to see. He was a bit short changed at Test level though as he had to open in 1974, and not unnaturally didn't look entirely at home there, and looking it up reminds me that he didn't get many runs in his other Tests in England, but he was a real crowd pleaser at County level, and if you ignore his Tests in England, averaged over 40 in Tests, so he clearly was good enough to make the step up

"Even when England lost 5-0 in 2006-07 I don't remember them folding like this. This is as bad as I have seen from an England side."
