Munaf the Easily Hurt

Munaf Patel is upset about folks questioning his intensity. Well. I'm tempted to say "heres a candy, you little baby", but I'll desist. An opportunity is at hand for Munaf; he should get in touch with the folks that he thinks are questioning his intensity and find out what they have in mind. Once he has heard from them, he should get to work on rectifying his shortcomings. That would be a pretty darn good demonstration of his 'intensity'. I can give you a few tips, Munaf, if you'd care to listen. Work on your fitness (spend more time in the gym and take some advice from some good physical trainers); next time you play a game of cricket, make sure your first over is not a warm-up (thats what time before the game is best spent doing; when the game starts, be switched on); improve your fielding; stop backing away when you bat. Most importantly, if by some chance you ever play for India again, remember you are representing your country and show some pride on the field.

SC

to pass any judgment on MP i think we should check where he is coming from...

MP being from such humble background unlike his colleagues will take time to sock up things and settle down...his lazy elegance can some times be interpreted as "not intense" enough but i bet inside he is a fierce competitor and the bowler India need more...

with little bit of care and showing that he belongs to team i dare say he could be india's answer to Macgrath...

its pity and reflection of what type of person VP is when he openly comes out in print about the guy he is supposed to fine tune and even if he may have sensed something...the better way would have been to have a one on one chat that what he likes him to do and what not...simple...

but i guess simple things are not simple to follow when everybody wants to have his bite of media attention...

Munaf was a burden on the team from South Africa through England. On most occasions you'd rather have someone else in the squad. Can't blame Prasad for speaking out after several months of trying to sort things out.

Spot on. Munaf is enough being persisted with n every time he has let down the team with his inept attitude and lack of pride.

his humble background shouldnt be an excuse to justify his lackasadical attitude. in fact this should be a motivating factor for him, if he takes it in positive way.

he was shown faith everytime since the SA tour and every time he was let down and let down the team too. perhaps he cost us the Capetown test too.
