    Fantastic innings, fully deserves to be back in all three formats. One can ignore the blind haters who have no substance in their arguments and thus, can never be taken seriously. They will find ways to diss him even if he scores a 300 in an ODI.

    Match winning innings in a big match to take Quetta to the final by Ahmed Shehzad today scoring 71 at a SR of 186. Amazing stuff, just brilliant. If that doesnt warrants a place in the Pakistani side, then nothing would. Burnol stock meanwhile in some areas is again short. Has happened quite a lot in the past two weeks.

    I was reading MRSN's thread on the other website and i was rather shocked at the attitude of @Rhythm and @aliasad1998 who were showing their deep seated bias. An ugly sight and i hope no team has as awful and knuckle headed fans as them.

    He had a torrid time for Pakistan in 2015-16, he got dropped from all formats and has since performed in every competition. This is how you respond to getting dropped. Full respect to him for working hard and keeping his focus instead of sulking. Umar Akmal could learn a thing or two from him, who just keeps getting worse and fat.

    Inzamam more than just hinted that he will be rewarded for his performance. Great chance for him to establish himself in all three formats, especially with the fat fixer gone.

    I don't think he will be successful, he is the same old Shehzad who hits it big in BPL and domestics but can't make it at international level. The main reason for that is his inability to rotate the strike or find gaps.

    But he should be selected after his recent domestic performance. Fair is fair. I'd like to see him in T20s or tests, keep him away from ODIs.

    The most talented hard hitting emerging player of the PSL seems to be a fan of Ahmad as well.

    @Don Duckman , who would you pick as openers in the ODI side now with Azhar out of the captaincy (and most likely out of the team with that) and Sharjeel most likely banned?

    Decent choices.

    I'm not sure about Hafeez, but he'll most likely be the first opener on the list now due to his experience. I think Fakhar has done enough to earn a call-up, but I don't think Inzi will give Talat a call so soon. Shahzad I think will most likely be one of the three openers (other two being Fakhar and Hafeez... and Babar if you want to count him in the opening slot, although I think he should stick to batting at 3 in ODIs)

    Shehzad won't take Lahore to playoffs. He's not a leader.
    And I doubt Quetta will release him unless they go full retard

    I am actually against selecting shehzad as opener in t20s. 1 down is the position he should play. And yes, i am all in for selecting him in ODIs and tests.

    Hes not a leader? LMAO. And Azhar and Misbah were? Joke of the century. I think you missed out on the fact that the same guy you call as not being a leader just led the peshawar side and his HBL side to silverware. At least do some research before posting the usual drivel based on your prejudice.

    Azhar, no. Misbah yes, are you blind ? did you not see Misbah lead the side to some of the biggest victories in the last 5 years ?

    Shehzad has that arrogance in him which can never be a good sign for someone to become a leader. Heck he even showed his gems when he was about to become for T20

    PS: if you haven't seen him speak in 2009 and now. You should see how he has copied Afridi style which in his minds makes him look like a leader, in fact he looks like a complete idiot

    Shehzad was made captain for the Peshawar and HBL side for the first time this year. In his first stint at captaincy he has been successful in leading his team to silverware twice. This is enough proof and i can see that you have no answer for it all.
    You need arrogance to be a leader because you need to have high self expectations. Btw, what major victories by Misbah? He was a garbage LOI captain and we got owned in South Africa, Australia and Newzeland and also lost a frigging test match to zimbabwe of all teams.

    So by your logic

    Someone who won U-19 world cups, A tours and took a side who was written off by everyone shouldn't be captain but someone who is arrogant and got two silverwares this year as captain should be

    Misbah won against no.1 Test sides, 3 times. Became the only captain from ASIA to win series against SA in SA

    and I'm talking about Sarfraz who should have been leading the side after Misbah left. Sarfraz is a natural leader, he has all the tools and skills. Watch his interview and what he told Nawaz in the presentation ceremony.
    That's how a leader behaves and lead. Leaders don't whine

    Fakhar is a leftie, Shehzad is a right hander. They are not in competition. Is Shehzad better than Babar/Hafeez?

    Of course you do. The question is which is he better in? He is more suited for T20s and tests, doesn't have the game for ODIs.

    Hafeez is an absolute bunny in swinging conditions but he is the first name on the sheet in UAE conditions with his all-round ability. Averages 40-50 with the bat and bowls well.

    Babar you are right, I am not sure either if he should be at 3 or opening.

    During the Zalmi innings, he strongly hinted that he will be recalled.

    As for internationals, it seems that a return maybe due soon.

    Obviously I wouldn't put a lot of hopes on him because there's been many times where he was dropped, went back to domestics, was brilliant there and got a recall based on that. But upon his return to internationals he showed himself to be the same mediocre batsman he always was.

    But the point is we aren't blessed with many options and Sharjeels stupidity has meant that he is no longer an option.

    Considering that it may not be the worst idea in the world to call him back.

    Finally there are two other things which are in his favor now. The door on Afridi is now closed forever so Shehzad won't have that to fall on to save the day for him when performances don't come. Also no afridi would mean that maybe he will focus on his training and work on his game rather than waste his time romancing Afrdi. He doesn't admit it but there are major deficiencies in his game which a top level batsman wouldn't have. Secondly there is a new coach who though has been a failure so far may take a different approach to Shehzad and the new clean slate would work for Shehzad here.

    However this all has been said before and if he fails again and is a nuisance again it will be a waste.
