Well Shoaib is distressed at being left out. He didn't get a chance to prove his fitness. Maybe he was fit. Who knows.

They couldn't find room for a player or two from the BD team? I mean we are playing in england that time and for a worthy cause like this, they should have shown better judgement by picking some players from the touring squad. Anyway, no big deal as we have bigger fish to fry...

ji bhai. oshubidha nai. oishob match apniteo patano hoi amar jotodur mone hoi. ofcourse tendulkar is not going to play his real game. even if he says that he is going to play his real game i will not believe it. so it doesnt make any difference.

and once again we see politics going on in the pcb.

This match is all about making money to help those affected by the tsunami. That is why the teams were selected with big names in mind. They didnt pick Kapali because he wont really attract much people.

They obiously didnt pick anyone from the 2 squads as the teams may not want their members to get overworked or injured. Although it would be nice to have 1 or 2 BD players in the team.
