Asif this season has gone at exactly 9 runs per over (12 overs 108 runs) and has on average takes 2 wickets per match. I for one think Asif does not merit a T-20 place primarily because he specilizes as a new ball bowler. Already we have options for our opening role under Amir and Razzaq, both of them do a solid job first up and we have ideal follow up under the spin twins, Afridi and Ajmal. With Gul to come with the old bowl. So in this contention Asif will be forced / accommodated more so then merited. Given this, we should specify what utility Asif brings to the table, categorize that utility to the platforms that suit his profile. Come what may, the skill set he endorses and this is based on my contention, is not something that can light up the t20 campaign for Pakistan. Side note, would prefer Hafeez over Asif any day.
