"...years ago on the last Pakistan tour of England; of course, the visitors would infamously walk off at The Oval and forfeit the match over ball tampering allegations and so this trauma nothing new with crickets most irritating and arrogant team. Its pretty clear now who the villains of world cricket are and let's stop making excuse for them to keep them in the game. The 'alleged' (cough!) corruption of the game this time around was that players ..." Read review

Pakistan Is Ready For The Next World Cup.

AdvantagesAll the players.

DisadvantagesFielding not as a good as the rest.

"I believe the Pakistan team is all set for the 2003 world cup. In players 1 to 11 and the subs you can see there is quality all round. 1 Saeed Anwar:- A world class player who has every shot in the book and who can play all through the innings. A very dangerous man. 2 Shahid Afridi:- A young and upcoming player who has hit the fastest century ever and can come up trumps on his day. Also is capable of taking a few wickets with his spin. 3 ..." Read review

A Strong Pakistan Team

AdvantagesStrong Spinning team, good batsmen

DisadvantagesMissing Shoaib Akhtar

"...in a test series in Pakistan the series was most famously remembered for the disgraceful confrontation between England captain Mike Gatting and local Test umpire Shakoor Rana. Whilst that incident had the positive development in the use of independent umpires it partly resulted in the temporary cessation of Test tours by England until this winter season. Other incidents also occurred and whilst the series was concluded largely according to the original ..." Read review

Shahid Afridi - The Enigma of Pakistan Cricket

Advantagescan demolish any team

Disadvantagestoo risky

"Having witnessed the latest case of a team being 'Afridi-ed', on this occasion English county side Lancashire, I did not know whether to laugh or cry. Despite having over 100 one day internationals and 11 test matches already under his belt, Shahid Afridi still lives for the high speed, all-or-nothing approach. His critics view the agressive 21-year-old Pathan as foolish and perhaps even 'brain-dead'. His protagonists may refer to his style as ..." Read review

Javed Miandad coach till 2003

Advantages

Disadvantages

"Javed Miandad's tenure as Pakistan cricket team's coach has been extended until the 2003 World Cup. Miandad, 43, took over as coach after Pakistan lost two Tests in the home series against Sri Lanka last March. Pakistan won the last Test against Sri Lanka in Karachi with Miandad as coach and then lifted the Sharjah Cup triangular series and the first Asia Cup title in Dhaka. He also led Pakistan to an away Test series victory against Sri Lanka. Pakistan ..." Read review

Good but could play even better

Advantagesgood side

Disadvantagesinconsistent

"...conclusion. In one day matches Pakistan are better than England but Australia are better than both of them. The Pakistan teams have played well against England but against Australia they were thrashed. They have a mixture of players, ranging from youth to experience, Yousuf Yohanna has been their best player in terms of batting. They too like the other teams have had to cope with injuries with Wasim Akram and Shoiab Akthar being ruled out. ..." Read review

Pakistan players victims of justice?

Advantages

Disadvantages

"...Triangular Series 2000, against two Pakistan players and the Captain of the cricket team has caused a furore in the cricket World. In Pakistan the news has spread a wave of disappointment among millions of cricket fans. Most of them feel that their cricketing heroes have been made the victims of stark injustice. Mr. Reid fined Waqar Younis 50% of his match fee and awarded him a one ODI match suspension, while Azhar Mahmood was fined 30% of his ..." Read review

The Good old Pakistan, Where are they?

AdvantagesLoads of talent, Match winning Palyers

DisadvantagesToo much Internal heat, lack commitment currently

"...any team that plays against Pakistan will have a couple of sleepless hours the previous night. While talking about them you can’t help but think about Imran Khan, the handsome former Pakistan captain who has contributed to the team and continues to contribute in any way he seems possible, besides being the mentor of two of the greatest bowlers the game ahs produced, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, he continues to train the current Pakistan bowlers ..."

Can beat anyone, or throw any game

AdvantagesSome great players, very talented

DisadvantagesDodgy dealings

"...names with him. Having said this, Pakistan do posses some awesome players, such as Inzamam, who can destroy an attack just standing at the crease (good job, because his running betweeen the wickets is woefull). Saqlain Mushtaq is also a world class player, proving that finger spinners can take a hatful of wickets if they mix it up a bit. ..." Read review

Advantageshas good potential

Disadvantagestried to cheat

"I am a pakistani cricket supporter and even though it hurts me to say I don't believe that a one match ban (Waqar Younis) is sufficient and the punishment should have been more, so this case could have been an deterrent for future cases. It is not the first time a pakistani player has been found or seen doing something to the ball. Over the last couple of weeks cricket's image has been torn to pieces, Hansie Cronje has torn the game into pieces and ..." Read review

Pakistan in NZ

Advantagestalent

Disadvantagesmatch fixing ?

"Currently pakistan are under the kosh, as it were, against the new zealand a side. Nevertheless, with the quality still present in the team, i expect them to win the series. In Wasim and Waqar they posess two fast bowlers with extreme pace and great track records behind them. The former will no doubt be sprung into acvtion by the fact that he is nearing the world record and could even braek 500 test victims in the enar future. In shoaib akhtar they ..." Read review

Pakistan- cheats, full stop

AdvantagesI'll think of one........errr.....maybe not

Disadvantagescalling them immoral cheats is doing them credit

"...know much about Test cricket, Pakistan are the undeniable cheats of the sport. Put simply, their levels of dishonesty, unsportsman like conduct and shear disregard for the spirit of the game are insurmountable. It is hard to isolate examples of this, not because they are difficult to find, more that it is difficult to decide what to leave out. Most importantly, it is Pakistan who are responsible for the current controversy over match fixing. Former ..." Read review

Pakistan vs India 2004

AdvantagesAt home

DisadvantagesUnpredictable

"...to get under way. Pakistan vs India is much bigger than the Ashes. India are on high after the series in Australia. While Pakistan have had good results in the Test arena, their one-day game is not 100% yet. For the test series Pakistan have to bring back Saqlain Mustuaq into the side. Mohammed Sami, and Shoiab Akthar pick themselves. That leaves one allrounder and one more bowler two choose. The other bowler first, for me this has to be another ..." Read review
