Masters of Swing

Seeing how Shoaib's the only one getting bad press, perhaps we should give him a break and focus our energies on our other pace dynamo who's quite the master at swinging and rolling the ball. So Mr. Muhammad Asif, the man who did this to India:




What have you been up to lately?
Coaching kids in London, why that's very nice of you, makes a change from you going and making a fool of yourself. Oh wait, what have we here:



FFS.

Laxman in the first and Sehwag in the second were the two best. I remember that test like it was yesterday, I really do. Akmal's hundred? After 0-3? After 39-6? Shoaib hitting Sachin in the head? Asif jagging it all over the place like it was Headingly in the 1980s?

Those were the days. Fuck you AKS, for reminding us how far we've fallen.

oooh that match - test cricket was never quite as sexy...

i remember i overslept the first morning by half and hour and showed up to find the team in tatters...

those opening bursts in both innings by our boys though are fucking legendary... especially after the previous two tests were such pornographic displays of batting orgies.

man...

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.


The trashiness, I love it!

First genital warts, now this!

I can't believe this kind of trashy gossip is now part of news on Paki channels and that you have chosen to dignify it by posting it up here. Who gives a fuck who Veena Malik is going out with, or what Asif is up to in his private life??! That is entirely their private matter. Him getting caught with opium in Dubai, taking steroids and being banned from cricket is very well a topic of public debate but not this!

I think the second video on it's own merit deserves to be posted. Fuck everything else - I don't think I've laughed this hard for an age. Brilliant.

Damn. I remember watching in disbelief as Pakistan crumbled against Irfan Pathan on a green Karachi wicket. I remember being amazed at his hat trick, and losing all hope at 39/6. But enter Kamran, supported wonderfully well by Shoaib if I remember correctly. I went to the match on the third day, watching Faisal Iqbal complete his century and Afridi smash the Indian bowlers to all parts en route to what I believe is one of the best Pakistani victories in the past decade. Statistically it was also one of the biggest ever against India I believe - 341 runs, no?

Asif. Dumbass.

I think it was Razzaq who partnered Akmal. Though I do recall Shoaib playing a tidy little knock himself.

And yeah, the Afridi knock in the second innings was overkill, but what overkill it was.

ali said...
