    Still better than all the batsmen in the side barring Umar Akmal. I don't buy the theory that he shouldn't play T20, when we still have pathetic bums like Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal in the side.

    As if he is a very good chaser..

    We all saw what he did in his last t20.

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

    He has a brain. That alone makes him more valuable than any player in the side. He may not be a great chaser but he would have given us a chance.

    Misbah should have been in the side. He can take on the spinners and rotate strike vs the pacers. Not sure of he could have made a difference today but he should have been in the team ahead of Malik.

    Not sure if he could have made a diff. today but he would be a MUCH better option than the useless Malik.

    Why is Shoaib Malik in the team, no one knows. Was he selected because he is married to Sania Mirza?

    All assumption man.. He was dropped for a reason..

    Not defending Malik but what's the diff.. Need to move forward rather than moving from one oldie to another.

    Hafeez 11(32) SR34% in a T20 is criminal even by misbah standards....

    Man he was in good form that time as well.. Yet couldn't win a game when required run rate was only above 6..

    My point is that why should we move from one oldie to another.. Why was haris sohail dropped in first place ?

    Sharjeel though a hack can still provide a strong start. We need to think about future rather than bringing these guys again.

    Future of what? Can't completely abandon winning now, so that we can do well in the future. Our are youngsters are quite poor to be honest. Misbah would have provided a stabilising presence.

    Give me Misbah over Kami(as batsman) and Malik any day, but then again, you could try out Haris Sohail, Shahzaib whatever his last name was again, Hammad Azam, Babar Azam etc as well.ยจ

    You have to let go. The guy was good 5 years ago in t20's. Have to get a new guy now. Fawad was missed more than any other player

    Fawad is not needed in T20s tbh. Its not his game, he has never been good in it.

    We were performing well in T20s. The moment we add Malik, Kamran aur Razzaq in team, we start losing (v SAF, v SL).


    There is no point of bringing back Misbah in this format. Misbah ka tu 1 saal hai bas. Abhi say addat bana lo us k bagheer

    He would have been better than Malik/Kamran/Hafeez but it still would have been a step backward.

    Biggest rpoblem was they dropped Sharjeel for Akmal, messed up a good openning combo for a waste of a player. Then Malik came in and tail started at 5

    He's not a massive hitter but for a number 4 bat he can be very usefull. The guy can hit out as well as shown in asia cup. He's the most complete player currently

    Yes we could have gone with a young side and looked to the future. But the fact is we did have Malik in the side, no reason someone like him should have been in the side before Misbah. Malik is complete trash.

    Hafeez is a poor bat. Others were rubbish. Misbah is a good bat but not for t20s. Don't forget his style and approach.

    Good thinking. Bring back misbah. As if hafeez wasn't enough. The only thing that'll change is that we'll lose but misbah will get his half century. Why take 1 step forward and take 2 steps back? How long will misbah play? A couple of years? Then what? We will eventually have to turn to younger players, so why not do it now and cut all the painful journey in half. Kick out Malik, hafeez, kamran and gul. Even ajmal should only be confined to ODIs and tests. We have raza. Groom him and give him confidence. We finally got rid of misbah in 1 format out of three and now people want him back. Why not make him PCB chairman, the coach and the selector?

    Your points are irrelevant. Malik was in the team and Misbah could have taken his place. You post some fanciful things about a team full of youngsters, you forget to mention that most of them are crap.

    He shouldn't have been recalled. Nope not a good bat.

    He was woeful in the CT and yet again he has failed in another tournament. Only the selectors know what they're thinking.

    maybe they have a secret contract with PCB to play in all big tournaments.

    i bet both will be on the plane to Australia next year.

    Yesterday Rashid Latfi said he will still select Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik. Both are experienced and seasoned players he even said Meray bas main ho tu Shoaib Malik ko captain bana don.

    Misbah would've done nothing different from what Malik has done. Misbah is a selfish batsman and totally unsuited for T20s. I don't blame you for calling our youngsters crap, that's cause it's the captains job of bringing out the the best in youngsters and you haven't seen real captaincy in the Pakistani team for a long time.

    'experienced' term is so overrated in pak cricket. Funny how these exp players get a free ride - very unfair.
