:big_boss: Classic 100+ and 50+ will never get old true test of master players able to play all day

Surprising Opening Pair of Abid Ali (34 years young ) and Shafique (22 year old)
played brilliantly to secure the test for Pakistan against Bangladesh.

The unexpected opening pair scored runs in abundance in two innings

Abid Ali with 133 and 91
Shafique 52 and 73


Abid brought back memories of great Javed Miandad with remarkable stamina to play continuously for 2 days and 2 long innings, specially considering he was short 9 runs from his second consecutive century for the test match

The pair's success was astonishing considering all eyes were on Rizwan and Babr to continue their sizzling form from T20 world cup where they opened the innings for Pakistan but the Suprise Test Team Opening pair showed Pakistani team is gifted with tremendous talent

Congratulations Pakistan. BCB members should be executed. They're bunch of ruling party linked corrupt thugs...

Test Cricket is amazing you really see the quality / fitness / stamina / skills
The bowlers getting into Rhythm with few warm up overs

Now this is some classic Pakistani Pace

Tremendous stuff from Shaheen only 2 runs per over and 5 wickets
Similarly Hasan Ali , stepped it up with 5 wickets and just 2.46 runs economy



Amazing figures

Am I the only one who feels fast bowlers should have facial hairs/moustaches

It adds "dehshat" factor - or atleast from viewers perspective it does
SSA was looking like a killer

For more dehshat he needs a sarfraz Nawaz type mostache

Well what lies ahead is great prospects as Series against West Indies and Australia lie ahead
  • A clean Sweep vs Bangladesh would be a great start to 2022
Going into Test/ODI/T20 battles vs West Indies and Australia

A win in 3 Series would be tremendous boost for Test Ranking for Pakistan certainly achievable , specially with the Series being Home Series

Pakistan had a dry period during Shoaib Akhtar's time he had too much swag but his bowling was not at level of Sarfaraz or Imran Khan or other greats like Wasim or Aqib Javed

There was some lost potential when at Shoaib's Akhtar's peak we got Amir / Asif pairing the group was more dysfunctional could have been more special

The current batch of player look to be in good mindset there is good balance and focus

He didn't pass on the torch- to some extent Asif also didn't pass on the legacy that started from Fazal mehmoods time in the 60s till Shoaib (eventhough he didn't do as much as he should have...)
After that no swag and little talent

Hopefully SSA and someone like him keep going and carry on the legacy Fazal Mehmood started and reach the status of a proper great

PCT fast bowling is a Legacy of one great after another
It needs to keep going and reach new highs!!
You know the cool thing
Fazal Mehmood - Lahori
Sarfraz Nawaz- Lahori
Imran Khan - Lahori
Wasim Akram- Lahori

Like most of our fast bowling great were produced by one city- nowadays.its not as good as it used to be.
But not to worry- KP specifically FATA fast bowlers are picking up the legacy of PCT fast bowling

The future looks well with

Shahnawaz Dahani (23)
Shaheen Afridi (21)

Senior Bowlers such as Hasan Ali now 27 (approaching 30-35 bracket)
Hassan Rauf , at his peak age now 28 (approaching 30-34 bracket)


People use to say Test Cricket Age is ideal at 30+ as player is at peak skill level


Mohammad Amir at his Peak age retired from Long format now 29 (approaching 30-35 bracket)

If moustaches could win, then Abhniandan would have won the Feb2019 battle. people are fucking idiots to think or suggest that semantics make any difference, it's skill alone.


Mustache , and some intimidation was part of game that certain level of "Competitiveness" is needed in the game.

Looking intimidating is a part of Gamesmanship

Your opponent should fear you
  • From your skills
  • Your Mean stares
  • And occasional bouncer to head
  • Aggressive winning mentality
It's part of competitive game vs Sunday league game
