well it was heard that it not easy for a pace bowler to make a comeback easily. but S.Akthar seems to be in his good form as he took 3 wickets in the comeback match. akthars bowled 10 over and give away 41 runs and took 3 wickets.he bowled a maiden over also. so we cant say that Akthar is not effective as he was in the past. and former pak captain Shoaib Malik struggled to find runs and scored only 8 runs of 14 balls.

Yes, Akhtar made a very good return back to the international game. It is a shame that off pitch controversies have kept him off the pitch for so long. I always love to see a paceman running from a nice long run up, it is one of the endearing images of cricket. So in that aspect I am happy that he has made a good return back. Cheers! Ram

Yes, to maintain fitness and perform at the highest level is difficult.Specially for someone like Shoaib Akhtar it is more difficult because he has to maintain his reputation of being the fastest bowler in present times. It is nice to know that he is among wickets again. And as for Malik I am sure it is just a matter of time before he scores big.
