Does Pakistan have an unknown ace up their sleeve? The Press Trust of India reports that there is a furious buzz centred around a young fast bowler named Iftikhar Rao, whose bowling action resembles Glenn McGrath's, and who "impressed one and all in the training camp for probables in Lahore". PTI quotes Wasim Bari, Pakistan's chief selector, as saying: "He [Rao] has performed outstandingly and we will definitely give him a chance very shortly. He has a good outswinger and a smooth run-up to the wicket."

Pakistan's squad for the first two one-day internationals is due to be announced later today. The Daily Nation reports that Shahid Afridi and Younis Khan are certain to return to the team, while Danish Kaneria, Imran Nazir and Saqlain Mushtaq will probably be omitted.

This is going to be fun !

I hope the series isnt cut short because of crowd trouble. People shouldnt take a cricket match so seriously.

I dont understand this craze for Shaeed Afridi .. hes hardly lived up to his potential .. and hes severely underperformed against India.

Is there any site that shows the video/audio of matches for free ?
