That's fascinating! It did turn out to be a blessing in disguise but I find it hard to believe that Athar would simply refuse to open!I thought they were struggling to find a steady opening pair through out the tourney. Only Jahangir was making runs so it made sense to shuffle. Would you please share the name of the player who told u this? Its only because I'm really curious!
