    Asad Shafiq is poor man younus khan in odi cricket.
    Matches: 41
    Total Runs: 1032
    Strike Rate: 70
    Average : 28.66

    *while that average of 28.66 come down to 20 odd against big teams.

    in before all come down at me that he is young & has not played many game,i want to make it clear that he is not young by any stretch of imagination.
    Asad Shafiq's age:27 years 188 days
    that is just an excuse.

    Now look at Amla who is just 2 years older than Shafiq & has played afew more matches:
    Matches: 72
    Total Runs: 3579
    Average: 56
    Strike Rate: 91

    Another Example is Jonathan Trott of England who has played afew more matches than Shafiq:

    Matches: 62
    Total Runs: 2681
    Average:52.52
    Strike Rate: 75+


    * you are good enough,you are old enough
    *i will come up with more :stats
    *Even Farhat has better :stats

    Umar > Asad.

    Asad has had a fair amount of chances without cementing his place.

    I feel today's innings is massive for him personally.

    20-30 matches isn't a "few". But yeah Asad hasn't looked good. Drop Kamran,Malik,Farhat first

    Let him play at one position consistently. In a line-up including dynamic openers and Umar Akmal at No.5, Asad Shafiq in the middle will make his mark. Ideally for him is to let him bat at No.3 and play out the innings without worrying about the strike-rate.

    Give him a consistent run without the fear of being dropped for the likes of Malik and farhat, then judge him. He has a good test record I which he is a permanent member which proves he can bat well.

    I think he's changed his natural game .Whether this was because of the captain or what ever I am not sure. Watch his first innings where he played Freely and scored the 50 in England an you will see he's a changed player .

    The only time he has gone for attack is his debut ODI match at Chester-Le-Street!

    Forced by Misbah.. Similarly Jamshed is also forced to change hid natural game and do tuk tuk.

    Don't understand Misbah obsession with Tuk Tuk!

    Hafeez should definitely not bat at 3 as Asad has his successes at that position!

    Performing against this mediocre Indian Bowling unit is no glory.

    *Remember all indian bowlers average over 30 in this competition which says alot.

    Was decent today, a bit slow but considering the conditions and how every other batsman failed, he obviously couldn't bat freely.

    what your over use of the smiley " :stats" doesn't consider is how many times he got dropped, even after performing. He's the one player who can rotate the strike..even better than Azhar Ali.

    Fact is that Misbah puts our batsman on tuk tuk Mode and he isnt the right guide for our youngsters.

    that is a good batsman and he needs to bat at #3 or 4 (LOIs)...he should be persisted with. He recently scored a fighting century in SA against steyn and co. So he has the technique and temperament.
