    Title says it all, given the fact that their top player and skipper Kholi isn't coming, still if India beats Pakistan in Asia cup, then how must will it hurt?

    I know they depend on Kholi, but if others raise their hand and if post a 320+ total against us, then I guess their bowlers, specially Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav could trouble our batting.

    To be honest, we have had issues against quality spin, so we certainly need to be wary.

    Whats your take on it?

    Stop imagining weird things man, that's not going to happen.

    And the name is Kohli, not Kholi :D

    GM Sir, aj subha subha :D... On a serious note, you never know, because we're not that good when it comes to playing quality spinner.

    Chahal is overrated, I don't see quality in him at all. Plus he is a liability in the field and cannot hold a bat.

    If Rohit is smart, he should be playing Axar Patel ahead of Chahal especially against Pakistan because he is:

    1. Much better batsman and fielder.
    2. Left Arm spinner whom Pakistani batsmen have been traditionally weak against.

    We have this 20 year old youngsta beauty in the squad though. I hope he gets a few games. From what I see, he atleast tries some variations.

    We are slow starters in big tournaments anyway so I'm always mentally prepared.

    And we are underestimating this indian batting unit without kohli...
    Sharma Ji will show you all his wehshi side this tournament.

    If we play 3 games with India then I won't mind losing first 2 games and beating them in the final ala Champions Trophy style.

    I dont see India getting past 200 against our bowling in any of the matches!! If our batting holds its own, I see no reason why we wont be able to beat india in all the matches!! Yasir Shah should have been part of the squad!

    Not sure if it will be a wise move to in with three pacers in UAE that too against India. Also keeping the fact in mind that probably Faheem will play and could be 3 seamers. That said, knowing Sarfu's love and support for Nawaz, I wouldn't be amaze if he opts him, which means two regular spinners, him along with Shady. And when he'll be asked about the reason for selection of Nawaz, he's gonna say that, he has performed well in PSL, which was played here and also wickets here suits him ... typical.

    Yes it’s true, Lol we all know what Fakhar did to Bhumri, Bhumra ghumri hogaya.

    Ha, ha, ha, I like it how we were all quiet before the match, not because we thought we were going to loose but because we respected ourselves, guys I request you to not act like Indian fans and in this case one of their players also is very much like them fans who I’m on about.

    I think we must go with 4 pacers including the allrounder Fahim in initial stages of the tournament. As the games are going to be played on these pitches, these pitches will take more and more turn so then Fahim is going to be replaced with Nawaz,. Three specialist pacers should play in any case. If Yasir Shah would have been selected, we could have opted for 2 pacers and Yasir, Shadab and Nawaz plus Malik as our attack on square turner pitches!!

    Initial stage, lol? We just have two games (not a month long tournament), one against HK and then IND.

    I think there are five teams in the tournament, each team will play couple of matches each so there will be atleast 10 matches in the group stage. So by the time, final comes up, pitches will be turning square and then we need that extra spinner!!

    In group stage every team has to play 2 games only, and say if a team loses a game then it will depends on other teams results. Odds are high that AFG and HK will be excluded but we still have to wait and watch.

    Yes, deep in the tournament, where Dubai will host 8 games and Abu Dhabi will do 5, spinners will have vital role, but historically spinners always do better from the get-go in UAE due to slow and sluggish pitches.

    Jab 4 pacers kheleinge to we will still have Shadab and Malik in spin department. Maybe, we can opt for Nawaz instead of Fahim if we need more spinners in the attack but Yasir Shah should have been selected in the squad as he is still our No. 1 spinner in all formats!!

    Malik as spinner has passed his best before date years ago. I don't trust me as a spinner anymore, because any batsman can show him all corners of the park in the blink of an eye. Malik usually give false hopes against teams which dont play spin better (could do it again against HK), but India will eat him alive. Therefore, I have strong feeling that Nawaz will play ahead of 4th pacers, and Faheem could be 3rd pacer.

    Fahim at best is a 4th pacer and allrounder than 3rd pacer and 3 specialist pacers would have to play anyhow. If Nawaz is picked, then Fahim would be the one to miss out otherwise bowling attack would be seriously prejudiced!!

    Malik is still good enough as a 6th bowler. He only needs to bowl 3 overs at most and when conditions suit him, he can offer more! Those turning pitches would make him a bowler too!!

    It would have been better had we picked Hafeez as cover for Malik cus both are similar type and Hafeez has his own strengths and weaknesses compared to Malik. Hafeez is a better batsman in England. He is a much better bowler but Malik is very consistent in Asia and can hold his own with his experience in foreign conditions and can make up for his lack of technique with his alertness to dangers!!

    India will go after Nawaz too as a matter of fact and therefore 4 pacers can do well against India as they can bowl in first 20 overs. In the middle overs, Shadab would bowl from one end with pacers on the opposite end. Malik will bowl couple in the middle overs phase.

    If Pakistan wants to be great team, Pakistan needs to start treating India just like another team.

    If India wants to become a great team, it should not treat Pakistan as any other team cus sports without emotions or anything of life for that matter is empty without emotions and sentiments and you can not be truly great unless you are motivated by some kind of emotion that makes you go extra mile for greatness~~

    I really hope we get smashed not only against Pakistan but also against SL, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Probably that is the only way to get the deadweights out before the world cup.

    If Pakistan beats Hong Kong the first Indo-Pak game is gonna be a dead rubber anyway.
