Probably play in the last game. I don't know why Fisher is chosen for ODIs l/a (35) 32 wickets at 43.81 econ 5.94
Well I hope your right about Saq. I dunno, with Fisher I guess they just want him to bowl when he's fit as that happens so infrequently.

It's just the same question with our pace bowlers over and over, how many can get on the field.

International Debutant
Eng Lion beaten by 6 wkts with 17.5' ovs spares
SA A won by 2/1

So Mahmood is off to Bangladesh to play in the ODIs. Misses out on the T20s. Both to be shown by SKY and commentary by Talksport.

Just looking at the commentary on Cricinfo. Mahmood just gets one spell of 5 overs. Why wouldn't you bring him back when the SLs were getting near their target. Econ 4.80 Crane and Hartley 5.85 and 6.41.
