    Shouldn't that be the end of him too? If that's how Sarfraz is going to be treated after his failure in SA, then Kamran should be dealt with the same way.

    His last 10 innings in ODIs (where he got to bat) are as follows:
    39,16,8,23,47*,19,4,2,0,0(most recent).

    His last 10 innings in T20s (where he got to bat) are as follows:
    43*,0,3,22*,1,5,32,1,1,5(most recent).

    All this+his history of dropping catches.

    If he doesn't perform in this series, let's make him captain.

    Dunno, he recently scored a 100, you never know with him. In T20s you need a wicket-keeper batsmen, or atleast an unpredictable keeper- batsmen uf you don't have a decent keeper available - and he is also the best T20 keeper of the World.

    I meant his keeping, check out the most dismissals by any keeper in T20s and Kamran's name will be at the top.

    My main concern with him is his batting as posted in the OP. I rather have a part timer, sucha s u.akmal (if we HAVE to choose from akmals) then to stick with this hack.

    An avg of 16 in SA.

    I wish there was a stats option which shows his dropped catches too.

    Absolutely After all Misbah became a captain after being dropped for poor performances (i.e being Misbah)

    Who are quiet?

    As far I have seen,

    No one here except the Akmal obsessed guy wants him in the team.

    Most dismissals is not an indicator for that he is the best.

    It just indicates that the bowlers have bowled pretty well and that Kami gets less chances to drop catches, miss run outs or stumpings in 20 overs.

    Drop him if he does badly in this series too. He had a bad series with the bat in India and if he struggles here too then drop him. He's not indispensable. Every now and then he has a shocker as a keeper and is inconsistent with his batting too. A wicket keeper version of Gul

    He should never play for Pakistan again. I thought we had seen the end of him after 2010/2011 debacles.

    When he was dropped back in 2011 hes passed out statements saying they can play me as a batsman in the team, even if I dont keep wickets.
    Really? with those kind of stats, we rather go with someone whose young and more talented..they cant do any worse and might even turn out good, if given less than half the chances this joker got.

    Giving such a long run to such a player is really criminal.

    in t20s, kamrans performance has been the best. he has overshadowed these guys in t20s with his amazing stroke play the reason why we are the best t20 team of the world so far!

    Bhaijaan in 2012 (last year) he played 11 games...mostly at #4 and #5 and sometimes at #6...he is averaging less than his T20 itnernational career average. He has 0 50s...mix that in with his drops..hes hurting the team more than benefiting.

    Plus, all his games last year have been in the subcontinent. If random heroics is good enough to keep him in the team, then why do people want [​IMG] to quit? Isnt he a bigger match winner than [​IMG] ?

    Sarfraz played 2 t20s games till date..he got out on 5 in one and DNB in the other. How can you say that?

    In SA kamran has played 8 matches with an avg of 16.25. You think that's good?

    I dont have anything personal against kami...all I care about is our team doing well...and for that to happen we need to kick non performers out..after giving them a FAIR chance.

    he is a t20 opener best t20 opener we have along with Nasir Jamshed and Imran Nazir so he should be opening. Hafeez has been occupying the opening position in t20s whereas Nasir and Kamran should be opening in t20s

    and who wants Afridi to quit i dont want him to quit Afridi should be in the squad but when we need 1 spinner only it will be definitely Ajmal. Afridi is the 2nd spinner. in t20s, Afridi can play as a batsman as well where his bowling is not needed as in these conditions i think Irfan, Junaid, Gul, Ajmal and Hafeez are gud enuff to bowl 20 overs with may be an over or two of Afridi
