    Waqar is the most pathetic person in the management and Misbah second to only waqar. I don't know whey they pick these kind of suckers. I mean if a player is good in playing then that doesnt mean that he can be a good management or commentator. Its basically 2 different jobs. Its like if a player is good in driving a car then he is just put in the cockpit of a jet to fly it because he proved himself to be a good car driver.

    When Waqar has been dropped from a major coaching stint with Pak twice already for disastrous results, what in the #$%& did they actually expect from him a 3rd time around? even if it's in bowling coach role and not a full-time coach role?

    And as for Misbah, aside from screwing Pak team with the bat for so many years in limited overs cricket, now he's screwing it from every angle. MBA degree ki bhens ki aankh

    PCB needs people who are compliant not controversial. This policy has been disastrous since 2000.

    Ideally Australia should have declared by now but they are too confident in getting Pakistan bundled up in both innings so are giving warner the chance to create history. But still this is third best test innings I have seen next only to Lara's 400 and Sehwag's 300(275).

    And Australia has declared just when I was posting this. Respect for players, captain, team management and david warner For putting team interest before personal milestones.

    Hanif Mohammad's 16-hour Barbados marathon

    1958
    Hanif Mohammad batted for 970 minutes (that's over 16 hours, or nearly 11 football matches) to save Pakistan's first Test against West Indies in Barbados. His 337 was at the time the second-highest score in Test history; it's now the eighth. It was also the longest innings in first-class history, until Rajeev Nayyar went 45 minutes better for Himachal Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy in 1999-2000. In Hanif's match, Pakistan had followed on, the small matter of 473 runs behind - they made 657 for 8 from a mere 319 overs.
