    wrong thread, think this meant to go in the 2nd test match thread
    (im assuming you're referring to the whole Pakistani batting lineup....)

    Calling Pak batsmen garbage is stating the obvious. But this thread we are discussing the keepers ability to bat, and its plain garbage..hes mediocre at best, and even that would be somewhat tolerable. Need to try Rizwan, cant do worse than this guy.

    3 50's..1 against Bangla (Ban), 1 against Zim (Zim) and I against Eng (UAE). Average of 27 (will fall after today's duck).

    Was somehow saved from going to SA earlier this year. We can truly do better than this.

    Mohammed RIzwan will probably inherit the gloves next!I remember when Sarfraz failed in tougher conditions people made Adnan out as better but He is struggling against Zimbabwe and in UAE!Heck,Sarfraz has outscored him that should be enough for any sane selector to drop him!

    I doubt rizwan will be given a chance in the near future, if he is then he'll probably be dropped after a couple failures if not less. sane and selectors cannot be used in the same sentence when describing the PCB, just like aggressive and Misbah do not go together.

    So true! 55.5 Mohammad Irfan to de Villiers, no run, edged but I think the keeper has put it down! What a let off for AB first ball! Irfan pitched on a testing length and got the ball to jag across AB, who prodded outside the off stump and got a thick edge. Akmal dived to his right and got a glove to it but dropped it

    He used to be good but he has lost it. Replace him with Rizwan ASAP.

    Kamran did actually keep very well whenever he got the chance lately, but his batting sucked more than Ashish Nehra on steroids.

    So Rizwan it is.

    Nope. It'll be Sarfraz next, and if he perform badly then they'll revert back to adnan. Our all time great great captain would rather play failures than give someone with potential a chance.

    Sarfarz did nothing wrong in the SA series to be dropped. It was Mr. Captain who started his tanturms when Sarfarz was selected and made sure that his panter Adnan gets in the team after the series. Every tom, **** and harry in PCB and team management has his sifarishes in the team.

    This critical drop was bound to happen. Previous drops did not cause any major issues but this one will end up in losing a test and an opportunity to win a series against no1 side.

    here comes the "karachi k saaray players deserve to be in Pakistan team" brigade k kaptaan janaab Saein sb.

    its obvious that adnan akmal has been pathetic and deserves to be kicked out asap but that legend killer aka moin "the boss" khan has made selectors pick legendary sarfaraz ahmad ahead of rizwan who deserved it much more than the hack!!

    Saein sb don' tell me sarfaraz is doodh ka dhula, he has had his chances before and we know how awesome he is!! what's rizwan's fault btw? he's not from karachi, is this all?

    mayray bhai is not even a keeper. Farmers can use him in their fields to scare off birds. Thats the best profession I can think of him today.

    4 tests, 3 in South Africa, 1 in Australia is a chance?

    He's a pathetic List A player, PCB's fault for picking him at all in ODI's.

    Rizwan can bat at a brisk pace as well so he would do well even if he plays in the lower middle order in theory if we go by his domestic performances.

    Talking about ODIs.
