Khadimhussainsubhpoto | 11 years ago | Reply Unfortunately, the test win against the formidable Australian team failed to inspire Pakistan to seek further wins ahead. Pakistan's brittle and shaky batting failed miserably again, disappointing their fans immensely. The inexperience of our batsmen was the major cause of the this poor and dismal performance. It's high time for the PCB to swallow the personal egos and think in the larger interest of the country's name and fame. Enough is enough! We cannot afford the further such humiliating defeats. Mr.Ijaz butt is humbly requested to allow our two great and world-class batsman to play for their country. Pakistan needs them, Their country needs them badly. They both are supposed to come back unconditionally in this hour of trial and try to help Pakistani team to face the challenging times ahead. Mere bowling cannot win us matches. Our bowlers need scores to defend. We hope Pakistan team will perform better in the coming tests with the inclusion of Muhammad Yousuf and Younis Khan.
