    if this West Indies series showed us one thing then it was that Ahmed Shehzad is still among the best openers there is today.

    On a difficult pitch the way he gritted out and laid a platform by scoring a fighting 70 odd will live long in the memory!

    After all it's not for nothing that he is the batsman with among the highest average for an opener in Pakistan test history (Saeed Anwar and Hanif Muhammad maybe higher I think).

    And he has achieved all this despite the team management and at times PCB effectively doing everything they can to bring him down. Imagine what he could do if he is given confidence.

    I'll correct myself here though. There is no need to imagine. Ahmed Shehzad is the guy who has brought a long list of world class operators such as Mitchell Johnson, Dale Steyn, Mitchell Starc, Adam Milne, Trent Boult and Morne Morkel to their knees.

    This is a guy who isn't one dimensional like Azhar Ali or extremely limited like Sami Aslam who some fans like to compare to Shehzad. He can bat in different gears and this is why he is such an asset.

    Ahmed has centuries in New Zealand, South Africa,UAE you name it and against quality bowlers in the little chances he has gotten.

    The last year has shown us that From all the options we have Ahmed is the most complete batsman. Babar Azam has flattered to deceive and his mediocre test record is for all to see. He has been much better in ODIs though. Similarly Sami Aslam is too limited and one dimensional and was dropped soon after it became apparent. Azhar gets you runs in tests but often they are not impactful. Let's not even talk about his pathetic ODI record.

    Ahmed Shehzad is at the right moment in his career and now has a coach who doesn't have a personal agenda against him. It is important that Mickey Arthur is his own man and takes the call the build Pakistan batting around Ahmed Shehzad!

    As a Pakistan fan it is one of my great regrets that Ahmed didn't go on the England tour and the Oceania tours. He is a batsman who forces the pace of the game and makes things happen and I am certain that his approach would have turned a few results in our favor.

    Let's back Ahmed Shehzad! He is in the team on merit and the future is his!

    Wut

    I think Shehzad should definitely be a mainstay in the test team but I don't support his inclusion in ODIs or Tests. Actually prefer Azhar Ali there. I think...

    As much as the universe wants him to succeed, He is not getting better. You give 2 lifes ( 2 no balls ) to a world class batsman like Sachin, Smith, De velliers, Virat, Younis. They will destroy you. Since that bouncer hitting his head, he has gone very precautionary and this has lead to his demise. Someone needs to train him. He plays great cricket in domestic but I guess he's in 2 minds.

    What do you mean?

    People tend to forget his achievements which is why I mentioned this post

    If you look at it he has the most complete batsman we have. Azhar is really good in tests but is a total miss in ODIs. Babar has been a huge failure in tests and seems out of his depth. In ODIs he has been much better but it's clear he tends to bully the weaker teams and is a bit selfish.

    But if you look at all formats together Ahmed is the most complete batsman we have right now.
