IMO the second best young quick(not including Gul and Asif) in the current Pakistan set up has to be Wahab Riaz who this week took 7 wickets(5 and 2) in the game against AUS A.
Malinga isn't fit. He hasn't played a 4 day match in year and a half or something. He was just playing 20/20 for the past 5 months or so. He's not fully recovered from his knee injury and not fit for test cricket.
