Congratulations to Pakistan on their test and series win over England. Misbah-ul-Haq’s calm captaincy has helped unite and shape this Pakistan team into a cohesive and, more importantly consistent unit. It used to be said that the only thing that was consistent about Pakistan was that you were never sure which side would turn up. Perhaps that is changing, and about time.
The departure of Iajz Butt from the PCB could not have come soon enough. That he had never arrived there in the first place must be the wish of many more than just myself. With continued calm captaincy and leadership, provided that the retards are kept from positions of power and influence at the PCB, this Pakistan team could become a very very good side indeed.
Yates likes Mohammad Hafeez and Saeed Ajmal in particular and enjoys watching Umar Gul and Younis Khan too. Make no mistake, this series win is well deserved and a rocket up the backside of the England batting. So while Yates raises a mug of Darjeeling to Misbah and his team, the attention must now turn to the England batting.
