    Fawad always performs yet gets criticized. Pakistani fans are unique.

    ehtesham rather wants hacks like Umar Amin whose shots look good, but cant buy a run even in domestic cricket while he dislikes unorthodox batsmen like Fawad.

    Not a good day to bump this thread ehtesham :rofl

    Btw on a serious note, who do you really want in the team in place of him ?

    There are talented batsmen like Umer, Shahzad in team but Fawad has scored more than them since his comeback.. which other guy do you think will do better than fawad ?

    How can one critisize him? He always does well. So now we blame people for doing well? He even played a few good knocks in Australia.

    Did you actually watch the match? He couldn't even get trundlers away, what will he do when he faces upto quality pacers?

    I told you Azhar Ali's 100 will come to haunt us and that came true. Let Fawad play against a potent pace attack in alien conditions then you'll find what I'm on about.

    Yes, I did and he did well against Malinga who is a quality pacer. How about you give him the benefit of the doubt? He cannot possibly do worse than the hacks you suggest to bring in.

    No idea man. I got no idea.....

    Except for that boundary over cover, what else did he do well against Malinga? He feasts on trundlers and that's all he can do, let him face a good pace attack and then we'll talk. I oppose his inclusion because he can't play bouncers to save his life and in Australia he won't get anything bouncers.

    Got to give it up to Fawad. He may not be the best to watch, but he has a lot of grit and determination. We need fighters like him in our team.

    Doesn't matter which bowler he targets, he won the match for us. Your match loser argument is invalid.

    Lols, I know he looks hell awkward, expected every Malinga yorker to get him, but he didn't get out. He's better than he looks

    He's been a run machine whichever way he plays. A must-have in the team.

    I agree he's better than he looks but his game against pace is very poor. Malinga lost the plot when he bowled half volleys at the death, short pitch bowling would've really made him struggle. Anyways, congrats to you and all #Fawadistas it was your day, you had the last laugh. Meraa din bhe aaey ga 1 din bachoo :yk

    Cricket is game of partnerships,so the argument that he depends on other ten is flawed,all in all another crucial inning from Fawad,exactly what Pakistan needed..

    Where were Fawad's fans when he was struggling and Maqsood digging Pakistan out and carrying Fawad?

    It was a good partnership, but I am still not convinced for some reason with Fawad in ODI's.
    Although it is refreshing to see someone making it so hard for the opposition to get them out.
