Hi Guest we're sorry for the downtime but the site should be up and working now...

Abid Ali aur Asad Shafiq bahir hone chahye...
Fawad ne mushkil se nikala hai aap ko.. Azhar se bhi batting nahi ho rahi thi... Fawad ne aa ker pressure thora buhat release kiya hai he got a good delivery... he was fighting hard...
Azhar Ali on mission save career.
Should get a 100 if he has to save his career...
He should better stick to Domestic. He is not fit for International Cricket.
He is atleast better than Asad and Abid..
What is Asad and Abids performance in last 3 tests?
What Indian fast bowlers are you talking about Holding?
If I was having power Asad would never ever step foot on a Cricket Field.
Come on Azhar
Khilao ge kis ko sab ko nikal do ge to?? Fawad deserves atleast couple of more tests before judging him.. he is not that bad as he looked like in previous test.. pichle test ki pitch and he was making comeback after 11 yrs so was not in right frame of mind.. today he looked much more composed and fighting hard... atleast next innings mein 40 50 score kar de i think his place would be secure for now..
Worst possible scenario is shaping up - Azhar Ali has scored some meaningless runs.
And now PCB will have a very satisfactory excuse to retain hm captain for the next 10 years and extend Misbah’s contract for the same time period.
so glad that you don’t have this power. And hope that Asad becomes the next captain. Even a year before his retirement will do.
He is THE BEST we have for captaincy role.
Yehi best available players hein.. in se ache players aap nahi la sakte aapki na school cricket hau na club cricket.. Karachi mein ground tak nahi hai.. aaj kal ke bache iphone ki dunya mein rehte hein cricket nahi khelte..
And what are his credentials for that? Did he ever Captained a Mohallah XI?
No talent, no nerves, no personality and no experience and Asad should be Captain. LOL
Never heard anything funnier.
Captaincy potential hai i agree with him... but masla uski team mein jaga ka hai.. when he doesnt perform with the bat, his captaincy would come under pressure too.. he would be under constant pressure... Azhar kuch bhi hai mar mara kar 1 aad score karta hai aur pitch per stay karta hai 30 40 regularly kar raha hai bara score nahi kar pa raha but he is staying at crease in difficult conditions agaisnt the new ball and showing fight at this stage in his career...
Azhar ka career Mickey Arthur ne kharab kiya .. he won us Champions Trophy in that opening partnership with Fakhar and he was dropped from odi team in favor of Imam and u know what Imam did after coming into the team...
50 for Azhar - good innings under pressure. Second best batter in the team after babar - let him bat - he isn’t a captain
Is waqt koi choice nahi hai captaincy ke liye Azhar ke ilawa... Keep Fawad in the team and groom Babar for the future... Fawad 1 bari innings khel gaya to team mein establish ho jayega he just needs 1 good innings and that innings may come next innings... he was looking good.. Fawad Alam imo is the next Misbah in the making if he is able to perform under pressure.. but is waqt captaincy Azhar ko hi rakhni paregi... Captain pure squad mein sirf Sarfraz hai lekin woh doosra Altaf Bhai hai...
Make Shan Masood or Yasir Shah the captain.
Yasir Shah lol Shan Masood lol Yasir Shah apni bowling kar le wohi buhat hai.. Shan Masood let him play his cricket dont put additional burden on him.. he is already struggling with the bat,.. 1 innings achi kheli phir 3 innings flop hogayee hein... captain first of all needs to have a permanent place in the team,... Azhar ne phir se deal seal kar li hai imo with this innings...
Fawad Alam bhi captaincy material nahi hai although he is a very smart cricketer,, buhat genius hai batting mein,.... Captaincy in mein sirf Sarfraz ko aati thi.. Babar Azam will groom into a good captain but right now u dont need to complicate things for him... let Azhar keep the captaincy for now.. he is doing a good job if not a great job... atleast he is performing with the bat somewhat... or staying at the wicket for long periods...
In larkon mein eik shoda hai jo captaincy kar sakta hai woh hai Imamul Haq... but Imam will have to first of all have a regular place in test team..
Imam and Shan can be good future captains..
That's a fine 100 by Azhar
Wonderful innings by Azhar
What batting order would you go with in last innings of this series for Pakistan? We have seen everything uptil now... Shan and Azhar came out to bat Azhar came as opener in this innings... personally, I have reservations on sending Azhar open cus right now he is my best player and however well you might be playing but new ball always does something.. so I am confused what batting order to go with. If I put Abid Ali open, it means Asad Shafiq will have to bat 7 and Asad although out of form you would still want him batting in atleast top 6 than Abid Ali so I think I would go with this:
both are full time parchies. Should not play for Pakistan to begin with.
Parchi honge apni jaga but kuch na kuch performance hai inki. Babar ki performance buhat achi hai but i still dont think he is that much of captaincy material.. i dont know how Babar will react when captaincy pressure comes on him.. will his batting form suffer a dip cus of captaincy? Whereas Imam ul Haq pura match apne per le kar khelta hai match harwa bhi deta hai jeeta bhi deta hai but he takes ownership of the match and takes the pressure on himself... whereas Shan Masood is a very educated guy which helps in captaincy... jis tarah ki innings us ne 1st test mein kheli thi 150 plus it shows some maturity and there is certainly some captaincy potential there.. u dont necessarily need to be best player in the team to be the best captain... Sachin and Lara were best players in their teams but did not turn out to be good captains whereas if u compare with Dhoni or say Ganguly they were much better captains although they can not be compared with those legends... Similarly, mein ne Aamir Sohail jaisa cricketing genius mind apni life mein nahi dekha... he is such a critical virgo aur captaincy Aamir ki buhat achi thi in my opinion.. Saeed Anwar was a legend player but he hardly captained whereas Aamir Sohail used to lead from the front... show anger to Prasad although he got out that is another matter but he had aggression and cricketing mind.. you listen to him you will come to know what he is all about... as a Chief Selector too, he rebuilt the entire team after 2003 and gave players that played for next 15 years and still playing like Hafeez...
What difference will this make?
To make it fair, Eng should allow Pak the whole squad of 24 to have a bat.
Batting order se bara farq parta hai... Abid Ali open jayega to shayad 0 per out ho jaye No. 7 per aayega to ho sakta hai 50 maar de... Fawad Alam the kind of courage he displayed should bat 5, Asad Shafiq ne abhi tak perform nahi kiya but its time for him to stand up too... Rizwan has been performing well so he should bat 6 in my opinion... lot depends on Azhar, if he gets a 200 here I see Pakistan scoring over 500 runs in this innings.. this is a big innings for us lot depends on Azhar cus he is the man in form and he should look to cash this form cus yeh moqa dobara nahi aayega...
Predictions are made without knowing the future so they can go right or wrong... u cant accurately predict anything but this is just my guess... Pakistan 550 in 2nd innings and Azhar 200.. everything depends on Azhar cus he is the man in form and this is the last chance for us to salvage something...
England should still win by an innings easy
Pakistan need to dig in and bat 4.5 sessions
Abid n Shan arrive
Fawad Alam must bat at 5 and Asad Shafiq at 6..
Good start by pak. Need to continue and frustrate england
