    I would give Musa a go in the 1st test to see how he goes! In the 2nd test, atleast 1 pacer will be replaced by Naseem, whoever does not perform (Musa or Shaheen)!!

    This team desperately needs an all rounder. Azhar and Harris better be practicing their bowling as a 4 man bowling line up will get ground down for 500+ here.

    As for batting, I just don't see how they can make 250 plus. Cummins, Hazlewood, Starc, Lyon will eat these guys alive

    At the moment, Naseem Shah is the one offering something of an unknown and different to others so we must play him imo and see how he goes!!

    this will be a brutal dismantling. I feel bad for the youngsters who are going to be thrown into the fire whilst our veteran bowlers who have been invested in for a decade put their feet up and look forward to t20 paydays.

    it doesnt matter what side they put out, it will be total humiliation most likely.

    shan is not a test player, Azhar and shafiq have failed to step up and lead, imam is poor in this format too. im unconvinced by Babar in this format, and our all rounder Bhatti averages 24 in FC batting.

    I like Abid, Sohail, Rizwan and iftikhar though,

    they should have played salahuddin, fakhar and perhaps alam.

    on the bowling, Yasir is likely finished, Imran is a decent place holder, and lets hope Abbas's recent form is a dip rather than decline - I would definitely have selected and played him, but my gut is telling me that we might be seeing the same thing as with Fakhar. Musa and shah have no experience - its really weird to have thrown them in like this, hoping they are the next Wasim Akram. if they are not, their confidence will be decimated. Shaheen is very good, but again it should be Wahab and amir bowling here and soaking up the pressure, whilst they develop shaheen in odis and develop him slowly in my opinion.

    1. abid
    2. azhar
    3. babar
    4. Sohail
    5. Rizwan
    6. shafiq
    7. iftikhar

    Naseem Shah will not be available i think for 1st test so we can replace him with Imran Khan as he has picked 5 wickets in the practice game. Need to send Naseem's replacement!!
