The former Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson is currently in England as a commentator for BBC and Saj Sadiq of PakPassion.net caught up with him for a chat on his coaching stint and two cents on the more colourful characters in the side. Lawson wasn't very forgiving of Shoaib Akhtar.

"Akhtar was totally unprofessional as a cricketer, he trained when he felt like it, didn't contribute to the team, I couldnt think of a more unprofessional player, which is a pity as he is such a talented player". "Akhtar is using 5% of his natural talent and was being disruptive to the other members of the team".
