Goodness, the player he looked like he had the potential to become in those first couple of tours to New Zealand and Australia.Anybody been following Umar Akmal's form* in the Pakistani Twenty20? He would be up there.
Got out to Kalpage, Ramchod from ZIM, Ealham, Sultan, Barrington Browne, Nkala, Whelen, Asim Saeed, Chris Drum, Tim de Leede among others who are like top notch (Streak, Nash, Styris, Siddle, Panesar)It's quite unreal who Sachin Tendulkar has got out to. He's got the best reverse Hall of Shame of any top player I've ever heard of. It's full of garbage part-timers.
I thought George was reasonably promising but went on to do nothing at Shield level post his taster at test level (to be fair to him am sure there were injury reasons behind it).George is a good bowler, he's not in Hall of Shame of Sachin. It's more that Warner would be sure to get him if he bowled at him, it's that level of junk.
