So we have all now seen Irfan in a few matches against RSA and India. What do people think about him (Tests and ODIs)?
Rather like Mark Twain's death, rumours of Irfan's height have been greatly exaggerated.
Yeah, he's very tall, but he's more like 6' 8" or 9" rather than 7'+ plus.
Doesn't make the best use of his still considerable length either, IMHO. Falls away a bit in the delivery stride.

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
I think his action has improved a lot since his debut against England in 2010. He's got good control and bowls at a decent pace while moving it around just enough. He's a real find for Pak. I think his biggest issue may be keeping fit. We always unearth some great bowling talent, how about a few batsmen for once!
