        Zaheer Abbas recently described Shoaib Malik as FUTURE START!

        He gotta be good!
        He is an all rounder!

          Pakistan named squad for Sharjah
          khel.com, The News, NewsAsia

          Pakistan selection committee headed by Naushad Ali took
          the bold step of including rookie off- spinner Shoaib Malik
          in the Pakistan squad bound for Sharjah later this month.
          The selection committee which also includes Rameez Raja
          and Abdul Raquib held their first ever meeting in Karachi on
          Thursday afternoon at the National Stadium with Pakistan
          captain Wasim Akram also attending as a co-opted member.

          According to available details at the meeting while Rameez
          got his way in the selection of Allied Bank pacer Muhammad
          Akram, Wasim managed to have his way in the selection of
          Shoaib Malik, a former under-19 cricketer who plays for
          PIA in domestic cricket.
          It is understood that Wasim also wanted to have medium
          pacer Shahid Nazir in the side, but Rameez resisted on the
          ground that Muhammad Akram would be a better choice
          since he was quicker in pace compared to Nazir.
          But Rameez conceded in the selection of Shoaib Malik,
          which can certainly be described as a bold gamble by the
          selectors, since the youngster is potentially an fine off-break
          bowler, a capable batsman and a electric fielder. More
          importantly in the last two seasons, he has shown
          remarkable improvement in all areas particularly his bowling,
          which has played a crucial role in helping PIA reach the final
          of the Tissot Cup.

          Still Shoaib Malik and Muhammad Akram can consider
          themselves lucky to be in the Sharjah squad inplace of the
          injured Saqlain Mushtaq and Shoaib Akhtar, whom the
          selectors decided not to risk playing in Sharjah and instead
          reserve them for the Australian tour.
          Malik and Akram join 13 players who went last month to
          Toronto, while the surprise recall is Shahid Afridi, who was
          dropped by this same selection committee last month and is
          now recalled without having got among the runs for Habib
          Bank in the Tissot Cup. Maybe the fact that the selectors
          want to keep him in mind for the Australian tour and that he
          did take wickets for HBL in the Tissot Cup might have
          prompted the selectors to give him another chance.
          But by bringing in Afridi the selectors opted to leave out leg-
          spinner Mushtaq Ahmed who played in Toronto against the
          West Indies.

            Shoaib Malik, hey I saw him bowling in the Tissot cup final i.e. Domestic 1-dayer Trophy.
            He's Saqlain Look-alike as far as bowling action n variety is concern with the same MYSTERY bowl.
            This rookie is a good future asset considering he can tinker around with the bat and a better fielder.
            Now the Q is can he sustain the Int. pressure?
            Its a totally different ball game, u know.
            enuff or need more??
            Enjoy coke cup in Sharjah.

            Cheers,
            Kaleem
