    I would rest all my main players including Hafeez, Amir, Wahab and Shadab so that they dont get injured unnecessarily. Give some practice to benchstrength and Hassan so that he may pick some wickets and get a boost to his confidence!!

    It is a must win game for us. We can’t rest our main players. We need to go out with the same 11. If we take our foot off the gas, Sri Lanka will turn us over.

    Need to keep the winning combination until it doesn't work. No one needs a rest with this schedule, we have like one game a week.

    You need to give others some practice too so that they can turn up when required and are ready as well. You have Amir, Wahab and Shadab firing all cylinders at the moment and Hafeez doing well with the bat. But what are you gona do if one of them get injured mid tournament? You got to have Harris Sohail, Shaheen, Hasnain and Imad in match practice too and I think against an opposition like Sri Lanka, I would want to give bowling practice to Shaheen and Hasnain with that new ball to see how they go and gain some form so that they can perform when required to and you need to trust your benchstrength as well. I dont think they are that bad that they are going to lose you a game against Sri Lanka. Imad would put a squeeze on Sri Lankan batting by containing them!! Whereas, Shadab is an aggressive option which is required in a pressure game whereas in a game like this you need options like Imad, Hasnain and Shaheen to put a squeeze on their run rate so that they get out themselves!!

    Not in a position to rest anyone.

    This is a must win game Cos the next two are against Aus and India. Need a big win against SL to repair the RR also.

    You need your best players available for matches against stronger teams like Aus India NZ SAfrica and semi final and final as well. You can give others a chance to keep them in the game and it wont harm you my guarantee! We will win against Sri Lanka very easily! England was a very tough opponent that we floored! Eik ke baad eik burj aata tha England ki batting mein! Tailenders bhi khelte hein England ke!

    They have enough time but you need your other players in match practice too so that they are in a position to cover if a main player is injured. If they will be in match practice only then they will be able to react to the situation. Otherwise, they will falter under pressure!!

    World Cup is won by playing all your cards. You dont rely on 11 players. You rely on 15 players to win a World Cup. If you rely on just 11, what will happen if one of them get injured a player that has no match practice will replace that performing player in a big match and will not be able to absorb that match pressure!!

    Same team. At most give one of the pacers some rest.

    Maybe Amir, he has poor fitness anyway.

    Op is jonsa related to inzi I guess. WC is not a tournament to rest. Every Tom, ****, and Harry knows that games must be won against SL, BD, and Afghans to maximize the odds of being in Semis. NZ were gonna get a shocker yesterday against BD if not for the lucky break Williamson got. No team is a pushover.

    Poor fitness? That's news to me. I don't think he's ever been injured. What are you talking about?

    These are actually the games that might make a difference between 4th and a 5th spot.

    He gets tired very quickly. This is why he can't swing the ball. This is why his pace is down to 130 after 3-4 overs. This is why he is a completely different bowler in T20s.

    Ask anyone in the team

    How do you know this information? Also is any bowler different? Amir doesn't bowl extremely fast to begin with.

    Azhar Mahmood mentioned it - and no only he has this issue. A few other former players have mentioned it too.

    So this means his issue is stamina?

    Also wondering what's his actual age?

    Not sure about that, but he certainly has failed more than he passed.

    So this tells me that he doesnt do enough running and sprinting. I do it thats why I know - it helps to enhance stamina.

    I understand, but since when he's back? I believe from 2016, which means he has been playing for 3 years almost. I reckon its enough time to get back in your groove.

    Let see if we get to have a 20 over game even. SL and AF are probably the teams everyone else would like to have a full game against. Tough luck.

    I’m hoping for the best - sometimes it’s just super cloudy but it doesn’t rain.

    But yeah it mostly doesn’t look good

    I’m enroute to Bristol, Heard it’s pi***ng down there like mad though and no signs of it stopping anytime soon.

    Here’s hoping the weather on Wednesday against Australia is better.

    Heavily doubt there will be a game today. Suck lunch for Pak.

    Tuesday looks a bit dodgy too.

    It means Pak v India really becomes a must win for Pak.
