    Could Asif have been a TEST ATG of Pakistan?

    Nasser Hussain

    He really looks interesting to me, Indian family, very hardworking guy and when he captained England were looking very good, his batting took major blows at times due to his 'fear of getting out', but he got his runs at a respectable 37 average. Thoughts on him? Was he England's greatest...
