This is why despite being being in form, they are unable to translate that into tournaments such as these played in the SC.
    An outrageous slur. Pitches in the subcontinent vary enormously, depending on how much lucre the home skipper throws the groundsman to prepare the deck he wants.

    So very much like in England eh? Let's see if Pakistan tours with Amir and Asif, how much grass would be left on the pitches.

    Come on MIgara.. Don't bite. Burgey is just having fun. The key is to troll him back and have your own fun
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    This post accidentally raises an interesting point. Is Asif in the frame to tour England? I've only just checked his recent activity and he's played domestic Ltd Over games over January. He has Div 2 matches coming up. Again Ltd Over I think. I don't believe Amir has had many FC matches since his comeback (or if so, only a few) and he seems set to tour. So what do our Pakistani posters think: Asif to tour England for the upcoming 4 test series?

    I think recently he was appointed captain of the Sialkot team, at this point I am not sure if the board will want him in the reckoning since there is Rahat and Imran khan who have been bowling decently, plus Wahab might be in the reckoning as well. But if PCB get desperate then you never know.
    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

    Yeah that's grade II. They still haven't played in grade I yet and I am not sure if they will get an opportunity before the England series. So far there is plenty of opposition to both of them from the team and the board, so for him to come back, that has to be resolved first. If any of them do, Butt will probably make it before Asif because Pakistan is in dire need of openers. His name was brought up earlier before the World T20 after the Khurram Manzoor debacle but was shot down by the team. Whether that will keep happening, who knows.

    Right now they have Hafeez and Shehzad as likely openers for the England tour and you can't really rely on either for an away series like that. Not that Butt is any better, but it might make the management feel better if they pick 3 openers in the squad.

    Cheers. I'm guessing they'll pick five/six seamers in a touring squad. You can get in the guys you mentioned plus Asif as well. Pakistan will say he's done his time and I can't see why they wont pick him for the tour at least.

    Yeah but the board and management hasn't been as supportive of these two as they have been of Amir. That's the main difference here though.

    I agree its harder to love him or Butt than Amir (I can't stand either) but I reckon they'll be pragmatic come selection time.

    You mean like when they toured with those two last time and the pitches seamed + there was swing at every venue?
