    Another red signal for Rawalpindi Express

    I don't know if this was necessary when the cricket was going smooth

    If this article has a grain of truth in it (and isn't just designed to unsettle him prior to the third test as I suspect) then it falls into the "Well, we know he has been checked three times but we are going to keep on reporting him until the testers get it right" category.

    Must be his doosra.

    So Akhter is again heading back to UWA? it will be better for him to spend more time at UWA, than at the pitch facing Indian batters coz atleast someone won't make an example of him at the University.


    Every third Pak bowlers heads to UWA (akhter,Shabbir and now this Tariq fellow).I just hope this time the UWA give verdict against the player!

    That is right, he is a total flop bowler.

    Once in a while Akhter gets Tendulkar out early, otherwise Tendulkar has been thrashing that overrated bowler.

    Tendulkar has already scored 2 centuries in this tour, in contrast Akhter has done nothing of note.

    Its clear as to who is the winner and to who is the loser.

    SRT vs Pak when Shoaib plays.

    0, 9, 194*, 2, 8, 1 - dismissed once in Tests

    45, 13, 93, 41, 17, 11, 10, 98, 28, 141, 0, 37 - dismissed 3 times in ODI's

    In Test's the winner is clear, that's for sure.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Well Tendulkar's average is 42.8. That doesn't seem quite so bad, does it? And Akhtar's removed him twice out of the six innings. So what exactly do those numbers prove? I mean they would say something if he got him out 4 out of 6, or even 3 out of 6, but 2 out of 6? And that Tendulkar gets out for 0,1, or 2 shows he generally sucks, not that he is "Akhtar's bunny".

    Yeah, you want to talk about someone being someone else's bunny, this is the most on-point example one can have in the India-Pakistan series.

    If Tendulkar was anyone's bunny, then it was the great Allan Donald.
