    He is fine at six. He needs to develop allot to play at 1 down. Let him play another 10-15 test at 6 to develop. He has good temperament he just needs to understand his game a bit better and work with-in his limitations.

    Lol two can play at this game bro.

    I can come out and say most if not all national level match fixers seem to be come from one province. but will i do that ? No.

    I can also say that the biggest parchis and useless cricketers come from one particular city(Riaz, Kamran, Farhat and Junaid Zia). but will i do that ? No. (btw no offence to anyone else, this post is only directed towards Nido.

    @ Wistful Reminisces

    Here is Asad's record in last 10 games
    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/en...an;template=results;type=batting;view=innings

    As a regular batsman who is more talented and deserves to take spot of Umar Akmal; why is his total of runs in last 10 innings total is 161, which is just 10 runs more than when Umar Akmal played his last ten games as Keeper and scored 151 runs?

    Surely if he has been given long consistent run in team since Nov 2010, he should do better than Akmal as he is more talented and deserves chances ahead of Umar and then why is he only scored 10 more runs than Umar when Umar was playing as Keeper...thats 1 more run per inning than Umar, and genius, I have only used your criteria that you used to call Umar a tailender.

    The test team right now should be shezad jamshed misbah Maqsood sharjeel shafiq safraz bhatti khan ajmal and another young fast bowler.

    Younis is great but he is the past.

    Future should be built upon. Look at Australia.

    I never said Shafiq is better than Umar Akmal. I said Umar Akmal has tailender stats. So does Shafiq, go figure. Replace him with Haris or Fawad :shrug

    Who called Asad, Javed Miandad?

    You brought up ODI stats of Shafiq, a format he regularly does not play and a format he sucks at. And we were discussing tests.

    I brought up asad's ODI stats to paint a pic of his abilities only after the domicile politics driven genius posted Akmal's odi stats.

    Feels terrible when pople show you the mirror right?

    So basically you're criticizing Asad's test performance by showing his ODI stats.

    I don't know what is wrong with Asad Shafiq, he has the talent, has the shots. The issue with him is a mental one, but after 3 years he still looks like he is making his debut, thus putting that unnecessary pressure on himself (thinking that he will be dropped).

    We need a batting coach big time, he keeps on going into this shell that he is not able to come out of.

    If someone thinks dropping Asad will earn Umar Akmal a spot in test, they are day dreaming. So no point bringing him in the comparison.

    If Shafiq continues to fail in this test series we have two deserving left handers waiting. Fawad Alam and Haris Sohail.

    I used to be called a regionalist when I used to criticise Asad Shafiq. Well I always knew he won't for two long at the international arena. He had poor FC and List A stats to even get selected.

    Asad has talent and technique. Just needs to play more freely. I will blindly call this a Misbah-effect. He was doing brilliantly when he first came in playing with Moyo and Younis.

    However, he has failed since then. I would want him to be dropped next match along with Hafeez to make space for Maqsood and Shan Masala.

    Well at least in this series he failed because the wickets had uncharacteristically shown a lot of bounce and pace and arw helping both the SL spinners and the fast bowlers a like.

    Shafiq made his test debut in Misbah's captaincy. You cant compare ODIs with Test matches.

    You have to be used as tool to keep the guy out of test eleven, who was taken to the tour when the current captain was dropped after failures after failures.

    Irony.

    Umar Akmal should be nowhere near the team. Asad should be replaced by Fawad, Azhar by Haris Sohail. If not one of these two, then Maqsood

    Lol - if you go by their desire - they will get All Akmals plus Babar Azam in the team. Plus Butt, Farhat, Riaz, Cheema, U. Qadir, Usman, Taufeeq to complete the final eleven:p
