    Shocking decision. Abbas avg’s 18 with the ball. One of the best in the world. And they leave him out?

    Azhar at the toss: “we know he is our num 1 bowler”

    And they drop him.

    Pakistani logic.

    I am not surprised. Imran had a stellar performance in practice game. Shaheen is left arm and Naseem is the one whole Australian media is talking about!!

    Imran's magic had pink color to it, with red cherry he is useless but Misbah had to prove his point to Pakistan fans hence he is in playing 11 over Abbas.

    Failure of umer & shahzed had made this coming for all. Misbah will had insult to the injury just wait and watch.

    Massive decision. Abbas should be the first name on the sheet. Look at his record.

    Forget the similar pace, IK bowls like an amateur wide of the crease. Abbas would at bowl wicket to wicket.

    Mindless selections again from a mindless coach and clueless chief selector.

    Mohammad Abbas since his injury:

    Mohammad Abbas since his shoulder injury:
    South Africa: 5 wickets at an average of 46
    Division 2 County Cricket: 26 wickets at an average of 26
    Quaid-e-Azam Trophy: 5 wickets at an average of 52

    Still a bold call to drop him for Imran Khan. I probably would have played Abbas. Especially since he performed really well vs them last year in UAE. Coaches see the bowlers in the nets though. Reports his pace has dropped even more from before.
