    That is Fakhar's second duck in his last four innings. In his last 20 ODI innings he has had nine scores of three or less. Amazing when he gets going but is he having too many bad games?

    Indeed a massive concern, but what other options do we have?

    He just need to find a way to stay on crease and make runs, because I think other teams have work him out.

    I did start a similar thread a while ago and his form is a massive concern. His poor starts put us on the back foot to begin with. I’m not sold on Fakhar-Imam opening.

    He needs to spend time at the crease,also needs to learn it's ok not to score quickly as long as you have wickets in hand.Today was a prime example of needing wickets in hand.His average is still around 34ish from the last 20 games so he's not where he was but he's not completely rubbish either.

    He needs to push on more when he gets going.

    We threw out persistent performer like Rizwan and kept Fakhar, just coz like like Rizwan are accumulator and Fakhar can hit big, but when such a guy comes good in 1 out of 4-5 matches then he's a liability.

    Fakhar's strike rate is nothing special either tbh

    He's been found out?

    Work on your cut, he is just slashing. They are bowling wide at him all he needs to do is cut. He had a good cut as well. Needs to put the slash away.

    He's trash. Below average. Brainless. Even on his good days he gives sooo many chances to fielding team.

    Before anyone says thats his game, look at other openers like Warner, Roy, Bairstow... they all look very solid at the crease most of the time and have much better strike rates

    Has he ever been a consistent performer? 1/2 wonderful innings in 10

    Nothing special.
