Where is Aloo?

I went through the list twice, thrice. Then I gave up. I was looking for Aloo-ul Haq ;-) in the list of Word XI team for October's Super Series against Australia. I couldn’t believe he was not there. I thought to myself that he is probably injured or unavailable. But now I realize that he has actually been dropped! What?! I completely agree with Hanif Mohammad.

When Hanif Mohammad was reached for his comments on Inzamam's exclusion, his first reaction was: "Please read the team sheet again and that too carefully."

When insisted that Inzamam's name was not there, he said, "There must have been a typographical error because no sane selector can drop such a great batsman."

Mr. Sunny, you have made a mistake. Accept the fact & correct the mistake at the earliest.

ABSOLUTELY right, but can't blame sunny alone though he is the chairman.

lots of holes in the team, i think both the captain choices are ridiculous.
