    Well insAllah yousuf will lead the list one day but just touching upon afridi.
    he started way before yousuf, and even if had scored at an avg of around 30 he would ve been in top 20. Lets hope he gains some consistency , although it seems very long but still he is young, to come atleast in top 10 of all time.

    Can’t believe Afridi is way the heck up there given his average of 23.

    Mahmoomd, we have discussed the hell out of the dictator and the politics. And the “discussions” never really go anywhere. This is a good break from the same old negative current events.

  3. I pray he lead the listing cause he has few more years in front of him, he can beat them all with his expertise.

    Yaar Owais, all this political unheaval in teh country has also made cricket ka maza karkara.

    I am convinced this website is run by stooges of Musharraf.

    The coverage of recent events lacks any significant criticism of the dictator and his allies, i.e. the stooges.
