The perennial potential (-worma)

Of Mohammad Sami...the one who has always been talked about in terms of potential, but who has very little to show for the investments done in him by the PCB (which is frankly why he is still edging out hopefuls like Asif, Gul, Arafat and sometimes even Naved). Sarfaraz speaks his mind about Sami's problems.
When you keep on bowling almost five of your six deliveries outside the off stump, the batsmen get used to your bowling and unless and until he commits a blunder, you cannot take his wicket," he said.

The likes of former Indian Test batsmen Sanjay Manjekar and former Pakistan opener Ramiz Raja, he said, had also pointed out Sami's weakness of not having a genuine wicket-taking delivery.
Ofcourse with some batsmen (umm..Sehwag) he can't even get away with bowling outside the off :-)
