    Shan Masood and Imam are Parchies so the only category they belong to is, 'J' for Jail,

    Rest are a mix of B and C. No one in this squad is 'A' worthy who has the ability to be the anchor with the bat and/or or a mix of both to lead from the front and become the anchor of winning games. Always think of Steve Waugh when you think of an A category player.

    Fawad has an opportunity now. He can finish his career like Misbah did. Misbah also got chance at 33 although he was good enough to even blast Warne out of ground several times in 2002 series. Misbah should have been a part of our team during Inzi era but for some reason, he was not given chances. Similarly, Fawad is 35 now and has finally gotten chance. If he cant become as great as Chunderpaul, he can atleast end up like 70 per cent of where Misbah ended up. Fawad has the highest average in our domestic and has highest runs in domestic. He has about 10000 runs in domestic. You cant score these many runs if u are not good enough anywhere in the world...

    Misbah era mein agar middle order mein Younus aur Misbah the aur 3 per Azhar aur 6 per Asad settle hogaye the to they could have easily opened the innings with Fawad Alam. Fawad opened the innings in his debut test in Sri Lanka. Younus Khan was good enough to spot talent in him and made him open the innings but those that came after him like Waqar Younus as Coach were dumbsters totally.

    Similarly, Inzi era mein u had Younus at 3, Inzi at 4 and Yousuf at 5. They could have easily opened with Asim Kamal and Misbah. Have Shahid Afridi at 6. Kamran Akmal 7 and Razzaq 8.

    Salman Butt and Yasir Hameed although were very good batsmen but Asim Kamal and Misbah were better than them.

    Categorization is done to show how teams are picked for PSL, IPL and other leagues. 3 - 4 categories of players are available from national and international and you have to select best from each category.

    In odis, I usually go with 4 pacers and spin duties are done by batting allrounders. In tests, I have 3 pacers and Yasir Shah and part time support is provided by batsmen who can bowl...

    I think you should categorize them in the playing roles. Like batting, bowling etc not position. That will make it easier to pick.

    Its a mixture of test and odi players. Imam and Fakhar u mostly see in limited overs cricket whereas u mostly see Azhar and Asad in tests.

    Based on ability and Potential

    Test
    A: Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Yasir Shah, Azhar Ali, Fawad Alam
    B: Haider Ali, Asad Shafiq, Shaheen Shah, Shan Masood, Imam Ul Haq, Naseem Shah, Usman Shinwari, Mohammad Abbass, Ifthikhar Ahmad
    C: Sohail Khan, Imran Khan Snr, Sarfaraz Ahmed
    D: Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim


    ODI
    A: Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haider Ali,Mohammad Rizwan,Shaheen Shah
    B: Ifthikhar Ahmad, Khushdil Shah, Imam Ul Haq, Haris Sohail, Naseem Shah, Asif Ali
    C: Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez

    T20
    A: Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali
    B: Khushdil Shah, Ifthikhar Ahmad, Shaheen Shah, Naseem Shah, Asif Ali




    Yes I think Fakhar and Babar are the two most important players in every format, Fakhar on form is our best opener while Babar our best bat

    second most solid bat in test and ODI is Rizwan, need a new keeper in T20
