A side-note to all this, is the issue of Shoiab's replacement.

Doesn't seem the most inspired of selections

Interesting blog in the unrivalled journalism of the Guardian likening Shoab to the late George Best.

Good spot In my defence, I was going by what many commentators were saying about the call-up, but of course with hindsight it looks a fantastic decision.

He is actually a very accomplished player in the domestic scene and has been for a number of years.. still was never given the proper run... now if someone would just put Salman Butt out of his misery and get Afridis younger brother in the team...waahaay we got a rocking 11 then.

Allrounder... he seems to be a bit more responsible with his shots as well

lol poor old inzi... he cant seem to get his feet out of muck!!!

On the other hand... well played Team Pakistan... they reached the final and gave India quite a fight before bowing out in the last over... such is 20/20 cricket and one shot can win or lose you the match.. to me that was about the only difference between India and Pak in the final.

And for gods sakes we have now proved to ourselves that we do not need the likes of Mr Akhtar so chuck him out for good!

Half of which is "time served" for the matches Pak have played since the incident. He's available - and looking forward to - the India tour. Judging from the crowds cheers when he appeared at the test ground today (according to cricinfo), he'd be welcomed back.

I see the ban will end just in time for the tour of India. Brilliant.

Now to be honest if he hasn't been indulging in certain substances, India shouldn't be too afraid, he should be getting past his sell by date and even if not he'll probably limp off after a few overs. A phenomenal talent but a buffoon. Surprised that Pak haven't produced another express bowling talent for a while.

Maybe there is still hope for....................


Mo Sami!!!!!

I'm not sure he's past it yet. I reckon he might have a year or so left in him, and certainly could well win Pakistan the series against India. Even if he plays just one Test, it could be enough - Test series have been very closely contested between these two sides recently and one great spell or one batting collapse could again prove the difference.

Yeah, when he's on the pitch he's dangerous (av of 25 and remarkable sr of 44). His record against India is his poorest of all opponents however (not sure if this changes between home and away series).

Perhaps we have handled him better than most. I suppose at times, like in Karachi last year, his impact wasn't seen in his personal wickets tally as much: he intimidated our batsmen with sheer pace and other bowlers then cashed in on that pressure he had created, with our rattled batsmen playing injudicious strokes against them (although, to be fair, Mohammad Asif took out a couple of wickets with wonder deliveries that would have flummoxed the batsmen even if Mohmmad Sami was bowling at the other end).

Well, I'm with you. If was Pakistani I would be frustrated by how often he gets to perform on the pitch. As an opponent, I would fear him if he does make it to the pitch.

Only thing I don't know is the point made above about his age. Genuinely don't know, if fit, whether his powers have declined.

True LUHG, we can only speculate. My feeling is that he's still got a bit left in him, but he could well be past it. It should all be clearer once the Tests start (assuming he hasn't managed to get himself banned/injured in that time again).

Miandad and Chief Selector Salahuddin... lovingly called Sallu by his fans having it out. I would like to see a day when the ex cricketers of Pakistan say something positive... really...i would like that. Not that Sallu is an angel but Miandad.. god he gets on my nerves!
