  1. I am Pakistani team fan but I am ashamed that pakistani teams make these claims before the match, but when it comes to the game they are unable to perform over and over….best thing to do is keep your mouth shut, be humble and perform on the field…it is very simple….when you win we will see then for now focus on your game than bashing around…usually in life people who bash around turn out to be losing…

  2. This clown is a chucker….all the talk of having double joint in his elbow is farcical..he was let-off by ICC because Pakistanis ability to create a furore at the decisions that do not go their way..they straightaway attack integrity of jury…he should be banned from cricket as every second or third ball he bowls is technically a no-ball…

  3. Whatever people call him, he is playing international cricket in front of best ICC panel and without any doubt he is the best around, that's the realty and we should except it, Praise the best don't burn your blood mate, and hope for the best you might find this type of great in coming 15 years because your cricket is 15 years behind Pakistan cricket! Again don't burn your blood.
