Wart! Shoaib Akthar declares himself fit.

Zombie March 2009 - Chicago

It is Déjà Vu time.

Shoaib Akthar claims he will make yet another comeback in the upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka.

As usual he has declared he is fit (and cured of the skin infection as Cricinfo delicately describes it) and raring to help Pakistan cricket.

As usual, my question is whether Pakistan cricket needs him and if so will the other players accept him?

Wasim Bari, the interim chief-selector of the PCB, statement to AFP, amplifies my doubts. "I will tour Sri Lanka to consult captain Younis Khan and Coach Intikhab Alam who will give their feedback on the players. Akhtar's return will be based on his fitness, which we will assess, provided he is wanted by the team management."

To the reader: Do you believe Pakistan Cricket needs Shoaib Akthar?

Of course Pakistan cricket needs Shoaib Akhtar as much as a fish needs a bicycle and any cricket team needs Buchanan. Hold a moment, they actually need him! Show me another Pakistani cricketer who generated so many headlines.
