Sam | 5 years ago | Reply You have done great things for Pakistan and it is very well appreciated. I agree with others, it will be best gift to you and Pakistan cricket if team has your services in England and win it all.
JD | 5 years ago | Reply A fairytale ending it would be if we beat England in England after the 2010 debacle. The captain who took charge of the boat entangled in a whirlpool successfully steering it out, putting it on course and say farewell. P.S - M.Amir should definitely be in the series. I want to see how Alastair Cook crosses the 30 run mark when Amir and Wahab/Junaid attacks with the new ball.
