    Best thing about Shaheen Afridi is his consistency... discipline... He is just like Wasim Akram imo... Although its Hassan who picked a 10 for and Hassan bowled well too to get those wickets but there is something called quality bowling which Shaheen is doing... Hassan is also bowling quality but those who understand the game would know that Hassan is bowling skiddy stuff like Mohd Sami which is also very good whereas Shaheen is doing a Wasim Akram here...

    Hopefully he will be like Great Wasim one day. And hopefully he will never be like Amir.

    He is doing well but not taking bucket loads of wickets. Having said that many players need time to develop further and polish their skills. Shaheen seems to be in need too. I think a full season in domestic is still needed so he can really concentrate fully on his longer formats game. Hassan has benefited from it too

    He picked around 5 wkts in this test match,... Picking 5 wickets on a dead wicket of Pakistan is not a bad achievement for a fast bowler specially left arm pacer... Hassan Ali ko wicket is liye mile hein cus he is suited to these type of pitches... he relies on reverse swing and gets wickets by targeting the pads of the right handed batsman and looks for lbws by bowling at middle stump of right hand batsman... Hassan is a bit like Mohd Sami...

    Of course polishing skills never hurts. Also we cannot underestimate the Shaheen's contribution in these wins, the wicket count does not do justice to that.

    You are right. He regularly gives at least a wicket in opening spell and has decent pace throughout all spells. He does make it uncomfortable for batsmen most of the times. Worth praising him. Compared to what trash Pakistan have had recently it looks like these two might just be ok

    No taking anything away from Hassan, but the constant pressure by Shaheen also helped tremendously.

    Hopefully Shaheen-Hassan partnership will continue to grow.

    Like the good old days.

    Really wish it would.. they both do have some good skills. Just need to keep being consistent and keep fit. Not get distracted.

    Hassan is back now after breaking his back during wedding celebrations. Let's hope he doesn't decide on a second wife ;)

    Shaheen although OKish but not even in the shoe dust of Wasim Akram when it comes to natural talent and skill.

    Shaheen has improved tremendously and it shows that he is putting effort. Talent like Wasim is once in life time, so hopefully Shaheen will keeps on improving. Many things can be accomplished by the hard work and he is showing he is not afraid of doing so.
