    Its not knee jerk, its a long held belief from my side, something i have said on different occasions. I am a believer in having Pakistani captains for our domestic sides with foreign experienced players as VCs to act as mentors. Lahore's management went for the wrong (paindu) lahori boy in Umar Akmal whose brain's status is unstable. They missed out on the real son of Lahore, Ahmed Shehzad. Not only Shehzad is HBL's current captain but also has captained Peshawar's team to a tournament victory in a recent ODI tourney and his aggressive captaincy was for all to see.

    QG is too small a pond for Shehzad considering the fact that he would never be able to captain QG due to Sarf. I hope he moves to Lahore as their captain with BMac as the VC/mentor to gain valuable leadership experience and to give some personality to Lahore.

    This is how you train your future captains and not end up with Azhar Alis captaining your LOI side.

    It would be a good move. He has the traits to be a captain with swagger, like Kohli.

    Kohli is a genius, stop comparing him with Shahzad.

    Shahzad has also got a confident body language, so the comparison is natural.

    Kohli is the best batsmen in the world, he has a reason to be confident. No offence to Shahzad but it is a poor comparison.

    Read regarding Iqbal's khudi. It's not necessary that if one is the best, so he should only be confident. Shahzad also has some swagger, natural one.

    As your bias against Shehzad is well recorded, it doesnt surprise me to see that you are clearly failing to see that DQ is trying to compare their personalities and not their performances. Shehzad's captaincy under peshawar and HBL is for all to see. Posting such gibberish makes no sense.

    Shahzad has proven to be a pretty damn good captain in Domestic. Lahore have not picked him in any domestic competitions for a while so see no reason for him to go play for them. Should come to Peshawar Zalmi and groomed as a captain. Younus Khan heavily regards him as captain material anyway while Abdul Rehman is also a big fan

    Worth a go. He just needs to be more consistent with the bat.

    I'm not biased against any player nor do I care what region they're from. I am a Pakistan cricket fan, I am not interested in a love match with any of the cricketers.

    Had it been in your control. You would have made Wahab Riaz as Lahore's captain and Waqar Younis as their coach. Pathetic.

    I do see your point but Lahore has no captaincy material player other than Shehzad and why not get their own boy to captain them rather than having a kiwi.

    Should join United as he will have a more prominent role there. With Sharjeel gone, he is a sure starter and Misbah will be gone after this year or next year and he can be a long-term captain for United.

    Genuinely believe United should look at either him or Imad Wasim as Misbah's replacements for the captaincy.

    ^^ Imad Wasim hasn't got any prominent track record as a captain in domestic cricket.

    Shahzad is an average player at best. Kohli is clearly on another level. In my opinion SHahzad should play only tests for Pakistan.

    Good suggestion.

    Shehzad has been an excellent captain in domestic cricket and he has always looked like a misfit at Quetta for some reason.

    He needs to play for Qalandars as captain.

    Definitely. Not only he needs to play for Qalandars but Qalandars need such a captain too to steady their ship.

    Kami Cobra had also scored 2 50's PSL 2.

    I know. I am saying that with a context. The context being PSL. Never compared him with Kohli to begin with who himself has shown to be a mediocre captain so far.

    would have hoped a batsman who got in like that would score a bit quicker and finish the job. Can't really knock him though since no one else besides KP stepped up.

    All jokes aside. I think he is an average player. I have more faith in the likes of Fakhar Zaman.
