To each his own

Inzamam gives the whole 'patriotic' trend (Jimmy Amarnath currently holds pole position, with his gimmick of planting a little national flag on the table in front of him when he sat down for the interview for national coach) a bit of a fillip by suggesting that Pak pacers have no need to come to India to train.
Fair comment, that Pakistan has in the two Ws two of the greatest fast bowlers of all time; fair, too, to suggest that the PCB should be tapping into their expertise. Strikes me, though, that countries like Australia and South Africa have produced a fast bowler or two of note -- yet, the likes of Lance Klusener, Jason Gillespie and such have come down to the MRF Academy to train.
Elsewhere, Inzy does the right thing when he suggests that Younis Khan was on the right side of the fracas involving Shahid Afridi.
He supported makeshift captain Younis Khan and said as skipper he (Younis) had the right to send Shahid Afridi as opener in the first Test. He denied the impression that he was also involved in the brawl inside the dressing room and supported Afridi.
