Got a good ball bit still is a mediocre ODI player. His record shows it.
he's an extremely talented guy who only plays poor under misbah :sir truthseer
mediocre :lol Thats too much for him
stop finding excuses
Last 2 dismissals shows his mind is not on the job.
or he just can not....
for everyone who thinks its the last 2 dismissals. try last 20 in one dayers. and ul find your answer. Its the same shit, he is lobby parchy
The talisman from Karachi, I have always called him out as a waste of space. He averages 21 in the last 2 years consisting of 23 matches. Thats right 21 in 23 matches. Further humiliation is, he scored 5 times out of 23, innings which are not considered fails. Only 5 times, which means rest of the 18 innings were fails. A very high stat.
FURTHER BULL CRAP, 100% OF INNINGS IN WHICH SHAFIQUE SCORED MORE THAN 30, PAKISTAN DID NOT WIN THE MATCH.
There is already a thread on this.
Horrible ODI batsmen, needs to be dropped for good. Should focus on tests.
he has flopped. Should stick to tests.
Oh not again.
merge this thread
He always gets good balls to get out & plenty of them..
True he gets good balls but he's thrown his wicket many times too. Shafiq, it's time to say goodbye to the ODI Side.
He's a test match player not an ODI batsman. He should just focus on tests. Stupid decision to select him in LOI squads.
I hope he doesn't turn out to be like YK. Great in test, rubbish in Odis.
45 odis not enough? Amla scored almost 3000 runs Kohli 8-9 centuries after 45 matches,that is standard...
Kohli and Amla are all time greats.
so he got another good ball today #WhyAlwaysHim
hmm that is why they are the standard to be compared with
He's a good batsman who should have been given some confidence. If you don't give a youngster any confidence , he's not gonna score.
He's a must for tests though.
Some people can't play ODI cricket; Shafiq is one of them!
He for sure is medicore in ODIs and not definitely living upto his potential.
Sad..... He is a top prospect.
I agree!He was averaging around 30 at 3 around 2011 but went off the boil after that!Still though, he has been batting at 3 but failing!
5 match odi series coming up,let's see how it pan out for shafiq..will take his tally to 50 matches,easily the longest possible rope..
Probably won't make the XI
Hopefully Haris Sohail is preferred over him.
Basically,in modern LOIs cricket you need to have big shots to succeed..Shafiq-Younus lacks that, more obviously against quality pace..
Both will be waterboys. Tailender Hafeez will be preferred over them.
It will be same team except Misbah for amin & Junaid for Shinwari.
The only position I believe he can add value is no. 3 spot!!
asad shafique is very medicore, never delivers when it counts, BTW im talking about ODI performances.
He's no too bad. Needs to be persisted with in order to see the best of him.
Agreed. He should only be selected for tests.
Must be Misbah's pet hence continued selection in ODI side!!
I agree, indeed Asad Shafiq has been a mediocre ODI batsman to date...
7 more posts. you can do it!
He has been go given enough chances. There are more deserving players
Haris Sohail musy be given the same chances.
