    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
