I wonder how many Pakistan players would have turned down the money that is being thrown at them by the government if they knew they had to sit through this (via Well Pitched)
0:38: Misbah is congratulated for his rear-guard efforts, which would be true if this was 2007.
1:10: Well Pitched has a great description of Shoaib Malik's intorduction
Its interesting to note what the speaker has to say about Shoaib Malik. He says that Malik's full support to the captain that replaced him is thought of as a change in the camp's culture.Duly implying that no former captains have supported their successors.
1:52: Shahid Afridi is "well-sung". Either the speaker knows something about Afridi's vocal talents that we are not privy to, or he meant "on-song".
2:37: Do you really want to begin the introduction for Akmal by referring to him as "dimunitive."
3:50: Salman Butt is one of the "few younger younger players confident when expressing himself." Yeah, I can't think of anything positive to say about him either. What I love about these descriptions is how brutally honest they are.
4:22 Poor Rao Iftikhar Anjum. What do you say about a guy who didn't get a single game?
5:02 Fawad Alam, "unlike most of his contemporaries is a brilliant fielder." Hahahha. More honesty.
6:50: Uh, he's meant to praise Mohammed Aamir not Tilkeratne Dilshan.
7:11: And the best one yet. Shahzeb Hasan is described as "ungainly."
7:32: Yasir Arafat "ironically..had fitness problems during the World Cup." Are they admitting we faked his injury so we could fly in Razzaq?
9:44. Restraint from Zardari. This is the only mention of Benazir in his speech.
