    I don't care how he bats in test. Keeping is more important in test.. Our batsmen should be scoring runs and nor rely on the keeper.

    In test, never get carried away with a keepers batting. His keeping is more important in that format.

    You know things are bad when Kamran is your best wicketkeeper batsman.

    Poor stuff on all counts. The Akmals will be one proud family having seen not one but 3 sons represent Pakistan and it doesn't happen with a fluke.

    Kamran has had his share of high time. Umar Akmal is the best batsman in the country currently and Adnan is the best test wicket-keeping option at the moment.

    When was the last time Dhoni,AB,Prior,etc dropped a catch? Needless to say they are all complete batsmen...
    I am pretty sure Misbah will want Rizwan for Africa series.

    De villiers dropped against us, i clearly remember.. DHoni also dropped one against us awell.

    you need to watch all the games to remember them... Drops happen... But if consistently drop them then it becomes worrying.

    I think prior also dropped 1-2 against spin in the ashes.

    although he keeps pretty well but, watching paint dry is worth more than watching him bat

    actually i stopped watching after we were bundled out for 230 :/

    coming back to the topic, adnan does get cocky more often than not and starts celebrating even before ball kisses the bat... dropped dollies in u.a.e as well, so not surprised tbh... this hochh-punna is gonna hurt him badly...

    Mutambami has better defence than Adnan,hence a better batsman.

    From what I saw in the 1st innings Adnan needs some one like YK or Misbah to guide him (as in the 2nd inn of 1st test) otherwise he tries to hit everything for no reason and eventually gets out.

    He might be a poor bat but TBH we don't have too many other choices for wk - apart from Rizwan but I don't know why he wasn't selected for this tour. Would have been a good chance for him to make an inpression

    Sarf is a better keeper and batsman

    I'd like to see Adnan score 40 odd against Steyn and South Africa. He also kept well, unlike Adnan, who's dropped two sitters this series :)

    Also, Adnan averages low on our pancakes. That's for a reason.

    Sarf is no good in intl. cricket.
    The 40 he made was because he had nothing to lose. He is mentally weak. Adnan may not be as talented as Sarf but he can play gritty inning in test cricket.

    He dropped one in the first game too.

    Time for the Adnan drop thread, I think. He's got over 10 now :)

    Funny thing is, how many tests has Sarfaraz played, Ahson Afzal? Is it two against Australia in Australia and 3 against South Africa in South Africa?

    Liking mediocre players will only get us mediocre results. Though I like Adnan.. But talking non stop behind the wicket and scoring 30 odd on dead, flat wickets isn't fooling anybody.

    He should have proved himself in the ODIs he has played. Apart from 46 vs a minnow he has done nothing


    I said before Rizwan should have played this series...
    But if I had to chose b/w Sarfraz or Adnan I would go for Adnan in tests

    Sarfaraz is a poor List A player, he is a good FC player. Selecting him for ODI's was dumbness.

    Let's just keep making excuses for our favorite players and ignore the elephant in the room. Sarfraz, Adnan, and every other Tom, ****, and Harry is useless. All lack talent.
