well mash's not getting enough wickets might have something to do with the fact that he doesn't have a consistent partner to keep the pressure on the batsman. shoeb akhtar was complaining about the same problem in one of his interviews, althought its true that he's always been cocky as hell, but he has a point. if you look at some of the best pace bolwers, they always had a dependable partner: wasim akram had waqar, mcgrath has gillespi, ambrose had walsh. i guess mash has to get used with working by himself, and i think he has done it quite well so far, as far as the run rate is concerned.
