Sad post this one is going to be considering the fact that we got annihiliated by South Africa twice in 2 days. When we lost in twenty20 … i asked my self when was the last time we actually got embarrassed this bad – the answer was match against Australia at Sharjah 2002.

But Boy o Boy…. 20-20 was just a prelude to what we got THIS time round in the real thing -50 overs going for 393. Our worst bowling performance since 2004 after conceding 350 against India in karachi. I mean … God knows whats eating our team. July 2006, everything was perfect . Tour of england turns out to be a nightmare and thus started our bad luck from then onwards which hasnt improved uptil now. 4 games left now before worldcup starts and one of the two warm up matches we play, one is against South Africa. God save them and bless them with some miraculous match winning abilities. Amen.

Here is my worldcup bound team – Bob/Inzi must read it !

  1. Imran Nazir
  2. Shahid Afridi
  3. Younis Khan
  4. Inzamam ul Haq
  5. Muhammed Yousuf
  6. Shoaib Malik
  7. Abdul Razzak
  8. Kamran Akmal
  9. Umar Gul
  10. Shoaib Akhtar
  11. Muhammed Asif

Danish Kaneria, Salman Butt, Zulqairnain Haider, Rana Naved, Mohd Hafeez.

Thats the perfect playing 11 + substitutes i can come up with – IF THEY ARE ALL 100% FIT, PLAY TO POTENTIAL AND WITH (NON-EXISTANT) DISCIPLINE ! NO question if they can lift the worldcup come 28th April . Lets see – first we need to avoid ourselves from getting smoked in South Africa :p
