Good comeback? Not so much

Well, Viru is gone (because of an undistinguished stroke). What a drag. But Shoaib Akhtar, another one making a comeback is here. He looks very heavy, muscular yes, but dare I say it, a bit 'roided, and I suspect a bit vulnerable to injury. From what I've seen today, its not clear to me that he is going to last the entire tour (he could start by finishing this interminable over with wides all over the place). India look set for a big score (barring the kind of silly collapse in the last 10 overs that dries up the runs). Pakistan look very ragged, as their over-rate plummets. Sloppy stuff.

Roids give you anger management issues. Like hitting people for no good reason. Doesn't sound like ahktar much.

Akhtar didn't look too happy today when Akmal proceeded to drop Ganguly off the first ball of the day.
