    Don't be so cheeky, angry little man. I understood your sarcasm perfectly. The problem is that perhaps you don't understand how sarcasm works. It's not an apt comparison and completely misplaced. Now, if you were going for a bad joke...perhaps you succeeded.

    And go ahead, I'll be waiting for the "Abusive" rating. I don't take kindly to your abusive posts on this forum, but I'll be happy to dish it back.

    Fakhar needs to be dropped I think. He looked horrid in his last game and he has been found out. Needs to go back and work on himself.

    Ahh come on don't be tight. You can't just drop Hacker like that. I like him. Nor every innings he will perform but still has only player who plays modern brand. Whenever he gets going we always be within 300 target. Sometimes he needs to engage his brain.

    I think he is in the line of fire at the moment opening the innings. Just got to get him away from the firing line and get him in that middle order lower middle order 5 or 6. He can really take apart any kind of spin so lets get him away from opening, get Sharjeel opening with Abid Ali and get Fakhar down the order.

    he can play some nice decent shots much better than imam ul haq in odis! Atleast he has a clean technique, can play every shot in the book!! Cut, pull, cover drive, hook, on drive you name it!! He looks a very classic type player and i think he can play odis!!

    He can play for Imam I guess. In UAE he will be successful but Pakistan can even play a batsman short in UAE. Such is conmand of Babar and Haris, generally you have to put time into a batsman for them to score in more difficult conditions. Pakistan don't look like putting time in Abid tbh.

    Imam is doing well away from home and Fakhar I've mentioned is the only X-Factor.

    Imam's SR is criticized a lot therefore i think best we can do with Imam is make him test captain and keep him away from odis and t20s!!

    New ball per spin bhi different hoti hai as compared to middle order. New ball spinner ka bhi skid karta hai opening is not an easy job and when you have two lefties opening, easy thing opposition captain will do is bowl an offspinner from one end which Bangladesh captain employed!! Its far easier batting in middle order in odis than opening!! A lot depends on top 3 in odi cricket!!

    I have seen him play. Not a fan. He got exposed this World Cup. Should go back to domestic to sort it out.

    Ok since he is young I might give him a chance. Even though I am strongly against his kind of play style I hope to see him improve it by playing faster. We can’t afford slow batsmen in ODI cricket. He needs to realize that quickly. When you reach 50 you should be scoring at faster rates.

    Anwar Ali finish hai to koi aur doosra allrounder dhoondna chahye! In my opinon, allrounders are essential part of limited overs cricket i.e. good allrounders who are handy with both bat and ball, this is what India does, I slightly disagree with my PM on relukata argument. I believe good allrounders can contribute a great deal in limited overs cricket. However in test cricket, I would prefer specialists. What 3 good allrounders like Imad, Shadab and Fahim Ashraf do is extend the batting till No. 9 and if Hassan Ali can refind his form then you can have Hassan Ali coming in at 9 and Fahim Ashraf at 10 with Amir at 11. This is what team like india is doing,. Just look at the impact made by Ravindra Jadeja and Hardick Pandya and Kedhar Jhadav on indian team. They can bowl and they can bat. They bowl their full quota and also contribute down the order. Thats what Pakistan desperately needs in limited overs cricket in my opinion. Test cricket is entirely different ball game, there you need specialists~~
