    Pak pace attack not lethal---- Sachin

    Pak pace attack not lethal: Sachin

    ANI[ MONDAY, MARCH 01, 2004 12:14:34 PM ]

    KARACHI: Pakistan's bowling attack is not fresh and is slowly losing its sheen, Indian master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has said.




    According to The News, Sachin felt that Pakistan's pace attack could not be termed as vibrant or lethal, as international players had successfully faced up to the likes of Shoaib Akhtar for around five years, Mohammad Sami for three and Shabbir Ahmed for five or six years.



    "But their attack seems more experienced than ours," he, however, added.

    I have serious doubts that someone as experienced as SRT would say anything like that.

    Personally I find it inconceivable - not because he's experienced, but because he seems to have plenty of common-sense.
    I'd be amazed if he'd said that before his first Test.

    Of all the people in world cricket, he is the last person who would try to wind a team up verbally, he prefers to let his bat do the talking:P .

    Don't get mad, get even!

    Surely, he must be joking about what Shoaib said about having to prove themselves against the Pakistanis. After all, he is a light-hearted persom off the field. Still, an interesting build-up to the series.

    It's ridiculous, all this flame-throwing between players.

    Its about as childish as some of the arguments i've seen between Indian & Pakistani supporters on the bbc messageboards!

    Actually if you take out one guy out of the attack (akhter) then the attack certainly becomes somewhat ordinary!

    Pakistan's attack is better with Shoaib in the team, but without him they'd be fairly even.

    All-rounder Yuvraj Singh.......the Punjab all-rounder
    Who said? He bowls at least 2 4-balls and 1 6-ball an over. Good batsman, great fielder, but RUBBISH bowler.

    It's ridiculous, all this flame-throwing between players.
    It's not just flame throwing. It could even be a joke, or just a clause of a deal to boost television ratings and newspaper/magazine readership.

    Come on, this argument seems to be attracting every player in either team.

    When Smith came here he suggested something about the pitches, but that was as far as it got...up until the 5th ODI of course.

    The way Sami has fared lately ,i think without Akhter Pak attack would sux.


    Does anyone think Sami would pose any poblem to Indian batsmen?

    Would anyone? I doubt it. All it takes i good application, which was present against the Pakistanis, and absent against the Australians. If they do the same as against Pakistan in SuperSport Park, they can even win the series. An ideal option is to attack Akhtar and Sami right from the first over, then go easy on the other bowlers. I have seen this strategy work with Hayden and Gilchrist numerous times, with Sachin and Sehwag in that match, and in Bangalore v/s England, with Trescothick in England v/s PAK and even with Dilhan Gunawardene against PAK!

    When Smith came here he suggested something about the pitches, but that was as far as it got...up until the 5th ODI of course.
    Good old Graeme Smith. He's upto it sometime or the other. I saw that extended verbal session.
