The fickle finger of fate intervenes again.

If Younis gets another big innings today and is supported by the middle order, I think Yorkshire will have done enough.

I don't think this match can be lost now, not from 186/2.

Younis and the Hog to both make tons, then declare. Some match Younis is having.

Well he's never been too flash at ODI cricket although he did underperform severely (as did several other Pakistani players) at the World Cup. In Tests he had a good tour of SA and has been consistency personified wherever he has played for the last two or three years. Happilly for him, though, the knack of getting out in the 190's that he developed last year hasn't carried over to county cricket!

I find it interesting that he is looking to quit ODI cricket (not confirmed yet) and that he once said that he didn't see himself playing for Pakistan more than a couple years last December (I can't remember where), although he might have changed his mind since. Still, coupled with his refusal to accept the Pakistani captaincy, it just makes me wonder if he is looking towards a long stint with Yorkshire, where he perhaps feels he can play in a less pressurized environment.

Blimey, who's been advising Younus? Did he not know some of the members eat underperforming players with some broad beans and a nice Tetleys?

One look at the Akhtar/Afridi politics driven Pakistani dressing room and he would have figured where he had a lesser chance of getting eaten alive.

That's an attractive action he has there, he looks almost as if he'd suit a proper cricket shirt, open at the top few buttons... It's almost old-fashioned. I'm also seeing a lot of comment about how he seeks to keep his stock-ball right on the money, whilst still spinning it...

To be frank, I'm wavering. He's doing everything right and that's fantastic, AND my patented theory does have one caveat - that a leg-spinner who perfects his stock ball is going to be more dangerous than a fancy Dan with four variations (Schofield and Salisbury) per over - perhaps Adil is the real deal?

I'd still be pleased if he could continue his development at Yorkshire this summer and perhaps book a winter tour berth as understudy to someone...

Can anyone see a time when English groundsmen start to visit India and Sri Lanka in order to learn some lessons from the pitch curators there?

I'm feeling faint.

What I'm finding really exciting about Yorkshire's batting this season is that it's different people getting the big scores so we aren't so reliant on just one or two performers.

Seven centurions so far this season....dunno why we were fretting over Mags so much. He can bugger off now!

There's always his bowling. He might take the odd wicket and bowl a few overs in the 1 dayers. Well worth his place
