Don't let it go

Is there a difference between knowing and knowing? All the Pakistanis know, from last year's series, that Lakshmipathy Balaji moves the ball both ways. Why then have Younis Khan, in the last game, and Yousuf Youhana, moments ago, shouldered arms to balls pitched just outside off? In the first case, Younis was bowled. And now, Youhana was trapped lbw, hit outside the line but, decisively, not offering a shot.

He brings it in, you know. And gets you out.
