    Pakistanis that love India & Afridi's lunch

    I just realised, pondering over for the umpteenth time on an amazing day's cricket at the Gadaffi, that a new generation of Pakistanis might have signalled their intentions to enter what is already in the words of Rahul Bhatacharya "a sizeable list of Pakistanis that routinely over achieved against India".

    Shahid Afridi now has four test hundreds, two have come against India. Kamran Akmal has just 3 in 19 tests, and two of those have come against India. Then there's Younis Khan, who averages well over hundred against India, and there's Yousuf, who him self has now 3 big-ones against India. Inzi's not done badly either coming to think of it, but then he's not from the new generation, is he?

    What is needed now is a new generation bowler to join this group? Say Shoaib or Rana for instance, or dare I say, Sami. Pundits insist this test test is taking a non-stop flight to one-innings draw. But I am convinced otherwise. And yeah, this not the flatest surface I have seen, the one in Multan a couple of years ago was probably more flat, and the one in Antigua, where Lara has twice regained the world record, that's not even a wicket, it's a road. By a long shot the flatest surface seen in living history.

    I'll end this with a quick trivia for everyone to ponder over, please note that I don't know the answer. Prior to lunch Afridi had faced 31 balls, and scored just 18 runs. In his next 47 balls after the break he scored 87 runs. Question: What did he have for lunch?
