    Recent development of Shadab Khan as a batsman has been heartwarming to see but it is important that he keeps focusing on his bowling as well and does not turn into a specialist batsman like many others who did this in past like Irfan Pathan. What happened in the end was they neither remained batsman nor bowlers,. Steve Smith and Shoaib Malik in the end became very good batsman for their teams!! So, however good his batting may become but he must give equal importance to his bowling! Jo cheez aapki apni hoti hai woh hamesha rehti hai jo acquired hoti hai us mein kabhi na kabhi dip in form aata hai is liye yeh important hota hai that you stick to your basic strength and make merry while the sun shines on your acquired skill!!

    Pakistan can make use of his batting talent particularly in limited overs cricket by promoting him up the order to make use of middle overs!! Whereas, in tests he can bat in his lower order position and contribute to the success of the team!!

    Yes indeed, a very good sign. Needs to replicate this swashbuckling batting in internationals.

    Always liked him he’s a bowler who comes with breakthroughs even if he isn’t bowling too well. His batting can be a huge plus if he can get more consistent in his bowling

    Don't raise your expectations too much. He is still nothing at International level.

    He wont get a chance to do this in international cricket. Will you demote the likes of Harris Sohail and Azam Khan to put him up the order in an odi? In test cricket, I think he will still get a chance to develop an innings down the order. Therefore, I seriously think Shadab must be developed as a backup to Yasir Shah in test cricket given that Yasir is regressing by the day in test cricket and Yasir is only holding onto his place right now so we must develop a future course of action and succession plan as well in case Yasir does not manage to get back to his past best!!

    Lmao at the likes of Azam Khan. It’s been like 7 games and he failed in most. He did well at the start but stop making him out to be a legend from now

    Sarfraz would have been back in Pakistan team soon but is waqt Sarfraz ki jaga sirf test cricket mein banti hai in my opinion~ ODIs aur t20s mein I see Azam Khan as the keeper. Sarfraz as a keeper is great but he does not have six hitting ability that we need in limited overs cricket! Uske ziada tar shots sweep shots hote hein! He cant dispatch a loose ball for a six which we want our middle order batsmen to do atleast sometimes not all the time!! But just to break the rhythm of a spinner in those middle overs, you want your middle order batsmen to be like Dunk who can clear the boundaries with ease and at will!!

    Nahi he is not a lalu!! He is a proper batsman in my opinion! Limited overs cricket mein uski batting nahi aati hai test cricket mein usko chance milega batting karne ka in my opinion! We must select him as a backup to Yasir Shah in test cricket!!

    He will be soon in my opinion! T20 cricket should not be a parameter to judge somebodys performance in my opinion! At many times, you just have to come in and hit from ball one and with these 9 over games, 6 over games there is even more rubbish!! Its just become a lottery in my opinion! T20 cricket kam nahi thi its further reduced due to rain!! Azam Khan should be judged on 4 day cricket or atleast odi cricket!!
