PCB and Misbah has invested into these two in spite of all their limitations, specially Azhar. Now Misbah and Younis are gone for good and these two supposed to be the leader of young battling line up. Since the departure of both seniors, Azhar and Asad's performances aren't great. Former is not only very, very limited player, but also always in survival mode, and is not able to impose himself at the crease even after facing a thousand deliveries. An ordinary but gutsy player, who will not look great in a very good batting unit. Latter's biggest issue is consistency, also he's vulnerable against new ball, specially when its moving (usually after 80 overs). Another observation is that, he's not good when playing with the tail, wherein he unnecessarily exposes the fragile tail. If a take a peek at their averages, then Azhar's is ok, but Asad's is even below 40, which is below par and not acceptable, considering he has played primarily in the UAE and you just to have look at Azhar, who bats as an opener or one down, but is still managing an average in the high 40's. I know Asad likes to bat at no.4 and he should, because he's a senior now, but he's far too inconsistent a player to build your batting around. That said, I am not sure if all this investment we did on these two over the years was a wise idea. Somebody will say, then who should we've invested in then? because Umar Akmal was a gone case. The other two names come in my mind are Fawad Alam and Umar Amin (I might be missing some others). But it all boils down to the fact, did we back the wrong horses, will these two be able soak pressure of being senior players or no? What's your opinion?
