well they don't have much of a choice...muhammad talha and sohail khan, both nearly as quick as aamer if not just as pacy, make shaun tait look accomplished. asif is still suspended, and the less said of akhtar the better. gul cannot carry the load all by himself, especially on pancake SC pitches. methinks, razzak, gul, aamer will shoulder the pace attack with perhaps rauf being a 4th seamer who will turn his arm over for 10 overs or so. kaneria better get in form, cuz with afridi out, there ain't no other spinner in the side.

on the other hand, i can't wait to see this new AAG attack of Asif, Aamir, and Gul. should be good times.

i don't any big name bowler has every come onto the scene at such a young age. wasim, waqar, mortaza were all 18 when they debuted. wonder how old the windies greats and mcgrath were when they got their test caps...
