The Pakistan We All Know And Love...

Pakistan are well and truly back

They weren't back when they won the international T20. It couldn't be them because they had mental strength, application and team unity.

Pakistan's epic collapse has now properly signalled their return to international cricket. And oh how we missed them!

The cricket world was a much poorer place for want of a team who could so effortlessly move between crap and class on a day-to-day basis. We missed the collection of player who could touch the divine in the morning session, and fall to pieces in the second session.

There is no middle ground with Pakistan. They are either in the palace or the pits.

For a little while they were in danger of becoming a consistently good cricket team. The last thing the world needs is another consistently good team.

No, no, no. I like my whimsical Pakistan. All is right with the world.

Why do you sound like you are glad they lost?

It's very sad! They are toying with their fans' hearts!!!

At the very least they should've stuck to being sucky after the tragic first innings. But no! They decided to raise our hopes and be awesome again! And now this!!!!

I'm not sad that they lost. I'm not jubilant that they lost. All I'm saying is that it may be a Pakistan team with many new faces, but the tendency of Pakistani teams over the last 20 years is to play magnificent cricket on Monday, and then snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on a Tuesday.

I kid I kid.

At least Pakistan have a couple REALLY promising youngsters.
