    Kami showed his class again today.

    proved my point that Kami>Hafeez as an opener and one of the best players of fast bowling we have in our team.

    Kami is a better player of fast bowling than Hafeez, Azhar, Asad, YK, Misbhah, Malik, Afridi.

    It was an unlucky dismissal. He was at the crease in the first few overs after Hafeez's dismissal and faced both steyn and totsobe with the shining new ball and survived them.

    Played well today for his 48. His best performance since his comeback.

    "Top keeper".. See there lies the problem.... His confidence should have been up after finally scoring runs.. He has major concentration issues.

    Just looking at ABD makes us realise how much we are lacking a quality w/k batsman. So sad.

    ABDV is world class...even if e get a keeper half decent we should be fine...

    if anything..at least a keeper who doesnt drop/miss stumps/get the balls down the leg...

    now scoring single digit scores and then one in the 40s and warrant his place into the squad.

    Sarfraz hasn't done anything special yet in Tests.

    Yes, in ODIs, we should try out a different keeper.

    Akmal basiclly opened and scored a 48 in the ODIs
    Sarfraz came at 7-8 and scored a 40 in the tests.

    Had less mess ups behind the stumps...how does that translate into dropping Sarfraz and keeping Kamran?

    Kamran played T20s+ODI and the series in india.

    He is not bad, but he is the most irritating batsman in the squad for a fan. He looks set and then gifts his wicket by literally and yes literally, playing a dumb nothing worth shot.

    the thing with kamran is his keeping has been just about average on this tour, and we are (sadly) happy with that... but his batting has gone for a toss. When he is batting at his BEST... he is still somewhat mediocre barring a couple of flashy innings. But, during his good 'batting form', his keeping is shite.

    I cannot forget the catches hes dropped, off kaneria, off akhtar, even off sami..... he's cost us games, ruined peoples careers, and is just generally a lightweight (ironically he's a bit heavy for a keeper). The shameful thing is PCB didn't take the initiative 2 years ago when we knew this guy is crap and pick 5-10 WK's from youth levels and domestic game who were under 18 and just put them into a specialist camp with ex keepers and batsmen to make sure that atleast we were preparing ourselves for finally dumping this frog

    kami-fan-boy.

    Lets see if the board has enough wits to drop him. We do not want his "experience".

    Bhaijaan i agree with everything you say but please don't replace one dolt with another,yes i fully agree that a young keeperbats man must be identified and even if not the best ,must be groomed for the future and during the grooming period one should not be to critical of him, in order to give him confidence and perform to his full potential.

    I agree. See with the new comers there is hope that they will adapt and improve (if theyre not good to begin with). But what do u do when u have a hack who has been players for years and doesnt seem to improve. He has finally improved his keeping a BIT, but the regulation catch drop/stumping is still there. And lets not talk about his batting.

    Kamran Akmal should be sent at 3. Hafeez should bat at 6 and Malik at 7. in place of Malik they should have included Younus Khan

    Go do the math and then try to justify playing kamran at #3 (or even playing him at all). Hafeez should be down the order..but pushing kamran aint helping.

    Kya baat hai. Kamran is so class.
    Misbah ul Haq should line up Akmal, Malik and Farhat next to each other and slog at them like he's never slogged before.
