The deep thoughts of Shoaib Akhtar

Thus spoke Shoaib:

“Cricket should be about fast bowlers, not batsmen,” he said. “Spectators like to see fast bowlers running in, hurting people, and pitches that make batsmen struggle for runs.

“But now we play on good batting tracks all the time, they’ve made laws about bouncers and free hits for a no-ball.”

Discuss. Personally, although I admit Shoaib can be a bit of a dill, I think he’s got a point. Except for the bit about hurting people.
