The first one for home tests and the 2nd one for tests in Australia, England, South Africa and elsehwere, will win India a lot of test matches going forward.

It reminds of the times Pakistan used to have Wasim, Waqar, Aquib, and Mushtaq.

    And yes the 2nd attack would help us achieve the wash in Pakistan...

    No offence meant!!

    but u forgot to include Pakistan in those elite countries...by any chance is tht an acceptance of Pak being a minnow ?

    i know u d kick me out of this space, but chill man, i m just kidding....

    Even Kamran Abassi today said Butt's comments on Lawson were insensitive...Is he biased too ?

    Not too long ago the whole India was demanding to fire coach Greg Chappell wasn't that insensitive, we all have our own perceptions about different issues and kamran Abbassi has his own it doesn't mean that he is right, I think Q is absolutely right somebody needed to speak out about the performance of the last administration and coaching staff, the decision to appoint Malik as captain and Lawson as coach was wrong,I think the new administration is moving in the right direction, I don't think any of the statements made by Butt will harm Pakistan team, he already doesn't enjoy the support of senior players. PCB is already making arrangements of another coach which will be working with the team during Lawson's last few months so it doesn't matter.

    As regards your minnow comment, we already know that the current Pakistani team is not a world beater but its not a minnow as you think its only your wishful thinking which keeps on making you think that, you need a reality check so go check the recent records.

    Q gave the Indian bowlers a complement and I think you should have accepted with a little grace , but then again its a little too much to expect from you.

    bottomline is, is pak cricket gettiing olive bunch it needs :)...i dontt think so nebody in pcb is bothered abut it :)

    ppl out here seem to be critical abt me for unknown reasons, but if u well cud accept points abt pcb i make with pinch f salt its good 4 pcb to move up n u guys too....

    this is just xchange of views and if u find this not valid, then its ur opinion...

    Q also belittled AK on BCCI, dint he ?

  5. Q said...
     

    Buzzz I think in Pakistan, India will use 2 pacers and 2 spinners. And in case u forgot the last time India toured Pakistan, we won the tests 1-0 :-) And the result in India was the same 1-0 in India's favour. So what whitewash are u talking about?

    As for Abbassi.. I dont agree with his views.

    Have I ever kicked u out before?

  6. Q said...
     

    Amit, I think Munaf is a very good option but he needs to be more consistent and injury-free.

  7. Q said...
     

    No Buzz I never belittled Kumble. I asked a simple question about wat he would do in a situation such as India is in now.

    The whole Indian media is asking the same question.

    And so are the fans.

    Thats no belittling.

    There is no doubt that Kumble is a champion bowler but he is in a tough situation right now.

    As for PCB and Pak cricket. We know he situation we are in right now. Only that u tend to exaggerate it.

    Q, It is heartening to see the pacers bowl this well... but I really hope that I do not hear one day, some cricketer writing in a book, that we cheated with some stupid mint.

    The reverse swing which I have seen is weird... if there is no foul play then it is awesome, otherwise I would be damm disappointed.

  9. Amit said...
     

    That's a good point Scorpicity, specially the ball starts reversing in 12-13th over. It generally happens with white kookaburra ball but never seen with SG red ball. I do sincerely hope that there was no foul play.

    may i please...thanks...

    i think its not hard to see that pak team, whatever be the condition of pak cricket, has done fairly good against us...

    we have had upper hand on ODIs but real cricket that is test cricket they have run us close...despite we being the favorite...

    and it should be worrying for us not pak...

    so this settles the 'minnows' issue

    now for bowlers...the original issue...

    i think we have the most varied attack one could get for all conditions...

    and if only irfan pathan gets to the same level we can play five bowlers without actually disturbing the combination...

    i hope he is listening...

  11. Q said...
     

    Scorps, I hope for India's sake that no mint is being used. I doubt it though. The cameras these days are too good not to spot something like that if it happened

  12. Q said...
     

    Thank u SP.. someone with a little perspective.

    As for Irfan Pathan, he's done a great job in ODIs but for that to be repeated in tests I feel he needs to add some more pace.

    Oh how i miss the days of Wasim And Waquar and Mushy.
