Sarfraz Ahmed - Two matches on, and everybody's champion

Sarfraz Ahmed celebrates reaching his century against Ireland I have never witnessed a team management being so wrong about a player. From Waqar Younis to Misbah Ul Haq, absolutely no one had the confidence in Sarfraz' ability to open the innings in Australia and New Zealand. One can't entirely blame them, considering that Sarfraz failed in 5 innings in ODIs and practice games in New Zealand and Australia leading up to the Wor

5 talented cricketers who have gone off the radar

There is an old adage in English that goes: “Well begun is half done.” Quite clearly, it means that a good start can take you only halfway through. Thereafter, one needs to build on that start to last until the end. This adage jolly well applies in the cricketing world too. There have been several instances of cricketers kicking off their career in grand style and then falling by the wayside. Let’s take a look at 5 s

Imran Tahir has been in impressive form This is probably the best time for Pakistani batsmen to click and put up a decent show. Pakistan are 1-2 down in the 5 match series and their batting has been unsatisfactory.  The highest that they have scored this series is 209, even though they successfully defended this total, thanks to their bowlers, but this by no means is a healthy score. South Africa, on the other hand, are a team filled with conf
