    This is strange , they deliver just when you dont expect from them .I was ecstatic to see Younus shine .This young team has a long way to go.

    The only thing consistent about Pakistani and Indian cricketers is their inconsistency. And consistency equals quality. And quality comes from superior mental and physical fitness and good training. With all the money at their disposal now, I don’t understand why they can’t do better than what we see on the field.

    Just when you think they are an unprofessional, worthless, and ordinary team, they show these amazing flashes of brilliance. Would we take cricket this seriously if our team wasn’t this erratic? :)

    I was following the score at work today, and it seemed like I was feeding off of Younis and Misbah’s energy….got a lot of research done today!

    Needless to say, I was glued to the TV for most of Pakistan’s batting – simply amazing.

  5. Adnan says:

    Younis did play well once again. He also seems to reserve his best against us (Indians). His career average is not too impressive but his batting average against India is much higher.
