    He can be make 200 not out of 50 balls, help his team to reach out 250+ in T20 - I DON'T CARE.

    He is a certified domestic bully, and don't deserve any more chance. In fact he has been given way too many already.

    And before anybody vouches for this snake, why would you forget what he did when played under Sarfraz against WI? Have we already forgotten how he treated Sarfu in that series?

    Don't think Mickey will be interested in him anymore.

    Indeed and his attitude wasn't acceptable either - not to mention his horrendous fielding, which was icing on the cake and wasn't impressive with the bat, which was his primary job.

    He said himself that give me 3 chances, and if I don't perform then drop me, don't know what is he trying to prove now? Bloody leach.

    Kamran can serve us in limited overs cricket but is there a place left with Azhar Ali, Imam Ul Haq and Fakhar Zaman already cemented their places. I think Akmal is our backup to these 3 and Ahmed Shahzad is the next backup to these 3.

    Instead of having such shitty backups like those two, isn't it better to give a go to kids like Sahibzada Farhan's? at least in T20's. Even Umar Amin looked decent in last T20 he played.

    LOL. Since when is being a domestic bully a bad thing? Strong domestic performances are supposed to be your ticket to the national team.

    By that logic even Fawad Alam and Sadaf Hussain are domestic bullies. Why do people keep crying for their inclusion?

    It’s because they hate the akmals. If this was Afridi then this thread would have been the most visiters by now

    Here spirit of team's success is compromised over spirit of emotions. If Kamran can contribute to Pakistan's success positively, then why should he be kept away from the team!! Anybody who deserves to be in the team based on merit should be included regardless of other trivial factors that usually plague our selection for so many decades. It's always the non-cricketing reasons which have damaged our cricket for decades.

    For me, Kamran deserves to be in the squad for all 3 formats as a 2nd wicketkeeper as backup for Sarfraz and he should be considered as a batsman too atleast in shorter formats!!

    But Sarfraz is the best wicketkeeper and more than a decent batsman although he does not have a power game like that of Akmal!!

    Yeah, you're right. Everyone saw what spirit he brought when he was with the same on last tour on Caribbean islands.

    You're also right that every deserving players who performances at domestic needs to be consider, but you we need some rules and checks to consider those players. These TTF's look Bradman and Sachin in domestic games, and looks like a sheep in challenging circumstances. Therefore, not every Tom, Harry and his dog needs to selected right away. Only young player, who are under 26/27 (as batsmen) should be selected on A tours and in T20's and then based on their performance can be introduce in limited or Test squads.

    Nothing has damaged our cricket more than those crickets who prolonged their carriers and indulged themselves with the team using their influence and connections.

    Refer to post # 14 for your part.

    Speaking of Fawad and Sadaf how much do you know about them? Has you seen their games? People vouch for Fawad ONLY IN TEST FORMAT. Nobody wants to see him in limited squad. And as for Sadaf, he has been consistent performer in domestic, but lack of pace, stamina and not handy with bat are the issues with him. Plus if he will ever represent Pakistan, then it will be Test and not limited over games.

    Fawad will be useful in odis too as he knows how to rotate the strike in the middle overs!!

    If you remember properly Fawad had a full series vs Bangladesh to perform in Odis,he failed terribly,He gets into the PCB patrons 11 and doesn't score big,He is being watched this season closely and this is probably his most important season ever however he averages less then 40 and has made his technique look more flaky,All of this shows he he has no nerves plus he is about 32.

    I would be all for fawad if he did what he did every year this year,He is an amazing fielder he is one of the fittest players in Pak and can roll his arm over.

    Sadaf Hussain bowls about 123 kph,Be serious even if he does manage to swing the ball both ways how many batters are going to get out.

    Fawad had a full series against Bangladesh and he did fail in that series but when on one side you give so many opportunity others like Babar Azam for example although he is one of the better players, there are many other examples like Umar Amin, Whereas if Fawad fails once he is discarded whereas others keep getting opportunities in the name of youngsters. These double standards should change!! One standard for one player and another for another!!

    Babar Azam is only 23,Fawad is 32 just learn to accept that he is unlucky as you can get E.G.he has been averaging 50 from his debut year apart from 2 seasons,This year all he had to do was continue however he is averaging 35,How can you consider his selection.

    TBH,Mickey would have had him in the team for England however Fawad has let himself down,Still he should be given the opportunity.

    What about Umar Amin, who was given 20 chances and failed and is again given a chance just because he times the ball well and Fawad Alam may not look good aesthetically. Fawad Alam is more like Chunderpaul who continues to pile on runs!! Fawad Alam is the run machine!!

    As of now the current squad is at a developing stage. Their is great chemistry among players. You can see them treating their seniors with respect. If it ain't broke, don't fix it
    Get over these one legged heroes. Kamran Akmal .. Khuda ko maanow!
    Comparing this snake with Fawad Alam?!. How many World cups fawad alam has played compare to Kamran Akmal and the same goes for test matches comparison. He's a sell out and he is not ready to accept his past mistakes. GET OVER KHATAMAL!

    As far as I am concerned, Fawad should be selected in tests and odis.

    In t20s, he can not be selected but we already know our odi team often struggling to bat 50 overs. In Champions Trophy, most of the time we batted second and our bowling covered our batting blushes but not always this will happen. This batting lineup will be exposed in alien conditions in my opinion.
