Apologies if there is already a thread on him (please merge this if so)...I had a look but couldn't find one. I have been really impressed by this kid. Since his come back into the side he has scored over 1000 runs in 25 games with an average of 41. He already has 5 centuries to his name but for me the key is that he seems to have so much time when batting, has a beautiful eye and never needs to hit the ball too hard. He has all the shots in the book and doesn't need to slog either; his controlled aggression and ability to hit aggressive shots along the ground (not in the air!) is a key strength and a vital one for an opener too. Seems to have really matured since his comeback. Only downside to his game at the moment is that he tends to get a bit bogged down early in his innings when he struggles to pick the gaps or work the ball around for 1s and 2s- preferring to deal in boundaries. This is obviously an area he needs to work on (just to add- I think Shehzad is the just the kind of cricketer who would really benefit from a stint of county cricket- hope he gets it this coming season or next- unlikely I know as counties tend to prefer our bowlers!) But Pakistan cricket is full of such hopeful starts and disappointing finishes. What does the future hold for Shezzy? Could he be the answer to one of our opening slots for the next 10 years or will he join the growing list and end up on the dust-pile of forgotten failures? He's obviously in good form at the moment and long may that continue!
