Shoaib Akhtar to Maharoof, OUT, That smile again. That gentle jog again. No wild celebrations. The left hand slowly goes up and a smile creases his face. It was a length delivery that straightened outside off stump, Maharoof, who had left the previous delivery alone, had a poke at this one. Mistake. Gone!
