    MashaAllah, now Shafiq is in the squad too, but you could have trolled better and put him in the XI. Disappointing effort.

    Yehi players hein humare pass aur humein inhi mein se best available 11 aur squad select karni hai... Azhar Ali test mein itni zabardast 100 bana sakta hai to odis mein bhi bana sakta hai... Asad Shafiq had started well in odi cricket in 2011 World Cup but later on, he faded away in odi cricket... reason for his failure in my opinion was that he prefers facing a little older ball than new cherry... He has been batting at 5 and 6 in test cricket for most part of his career therefore I feel if Asad Shafiq is allowed to bat at No. 4 in odi cricket when somebody gets injured from main 11, i think he can perform like he does in test cricket...

    Asad Shafiq ko select karne ki 1 waja yeh bhi hai ke he bowls part time offspin... i am going to make Azhar Ali, Harris Sohail, Fawad Alam, Fakhar Zaman and Asad Shafiq bowl their part time spin regularly as I have 4 specialist fast bowlers in my playing 11 as I feel 4 specialist fast bowlers can perform better than 3 pacers 2 spinners strategy... Shaheen Afridi has not been selected in limited overs cricket cus he is our leader of the attack in test cricket and I want him to be available all the time in test cricket and we would have to manage his workload otherwise he will end up like Amir did...

    Conservative side per selection is liye hai cus South African conditions are difficult for batting and suit fast bowlers. There you need proper batsmen like Fawad Alam, Harris Sohail and Azhar Ali. Relukaton ka wahan kaam nahi. Waise bhi i genuinely believe that ODI cricket is shortened form of test cricket than extended form of t20 cricket.... jo log odis ko extended form of t20 samajhte hein unka haal Umar Akmal jaisa hota hai aur jo log ODIs ko shortened form of test cricket samajhte hein woh Younus Khan ko follow karte hein aur aap jante ho Younus Khan aur Umar Akmal mein zameen asmaan ka farq hai....

    Agar ziada aggressive side per strategy rakho ge to you will fail big time and get bowled out for 50... buhat hi caution se batting ki jati hai aisi conditions mein aur aise pace attack ke against...

    I seriously feel Younus Khan was misused by Waqar Younus in 2015 World Cup,... Agar Younus Khan ko properly use karte 2015 WC mein to he would have been Javed Miandad of 92 World Cup... eik to he was not batting in his usual manner which he does against South Africa even though woh game bhi Younus aur Sarfraz ki partnership, Misbah ki innings aur fast bowlers ki bowling ki waja se aap jeet gaye the... i dont know what instructions were given to him that he was not batting in his usual calm manner like he does and he was looking to innovate every second delivery and he got out in half cock manner to AB De Velliers bowling cus of that...
    India ke against match mein he was made to open..
    He was dropped after couple of failures.. and after winning the game against South Africa..
    Salim Malik was a failure throughout 92 World Cup but Imran Khan did not drop him and stuck to him... you need to back your experienced players cus they are the ones who will deliver under pressure and crisis situation...
    This is not how you treat your experienced player..
    Agar aap Younus Khan ko proper chance No. 4 per dete to Younus would have helped you in winning World Cup.. you have your best batsmen batting at 4 and 5 whatever the format unless your best batsman is an opener.. you dont throw him in top order.. that new ball is going to get him in normal conditions let alone Aussie pitches..
    Umar Akmal was preferred over Younus... Umar Akmal ka pura career hi failure hai aapke saamne hai uska career bhi uska attitude bhi aur uski harkatein bhi.. whereas Younus and Misbah were thorough gentlemen...

    Here it is important to mention that Younus Khan had just scored 4 100s in 4 innings against Australia in home UAE series against Australia and he was mistreated during the World Cup... he has also scored a century in odi series against NZ at home prior to WC... he could click any moment...
