Moin Khan - Will the Pakis ever learn how to shut their mouth ?

I did not see the Faisalabad test match on TV. Nevertheless, this article by Moin Khan in Indian express where he makes a veiled reference that Tendulkar walked off even before waiting for the umpire's signal because he was scared of Shoaib Akhtar's pace bowling is the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a long time.

When you have just a second or two to make a decision about walking off ( If you think the ball hit your glove) , these kind of mistakes happen. Sachin did walk away when he was not out. But its shameful to say that he did so because he feared pace bowling. I agree that Sachin is not the old warhorse anymore but he ain't a coward. Mr.Moin Khan , you better watch your tongue .

  • Hello my friend...hold on...Let action speak.!! If Sachin just hits Shoaib and the other bowlers in Karachi..everyone will start keeping quiet.

    But...think again...MHO, Sachin is past his peak and he was stupid in my opinion to walk..that too..against the PAK team..who would never do that ( atleast now).

    Remember Dhoni was out caught behind and he never walked..the replays showed it clearly.!!

    That said, what's with the Pak writers and Pak commentators ( Mr. Rameez Raja you specially) why are they so arrogant? Are our press and commentators like that..?? I don't think so.!!

  • Well, I was also shocked to see this article by Moin Khan... well, whether Sachin is past his prime or other relevant discussion apart, i feel it was not right on the part of Moin Khan to conclude that Sachin was afraid to face Shoaib...
