    Rule what influence will you drop haris sohail from playing eleven?

    Who will ever allow sarfraz to bat at 4 based on his current form?

    Its Misbah's era all over again!!!!

    Shadab and Faheem are luloos with the bat. They need to prove themselves before being called all rounders. Even Imad has little to show with the bat other than one great innings.

    This is what happens when king Misbah picks players who are not good enough for international cricket.
    The king of dots Shezad and king of ducks Akmal, on what merit are these guys recalled for the 100th time? only Misbah knows. Asif Ali is also another guy with 0 temperament for internationals. His domestic stats are also poor.
    Iftikhar is another mediocre player.
    The less said about Sarfraz's batting the better. He can't play proper shots so tries to make up for it by running every time he connected with the ball. It wasn't surprising he was involved in a horrible run out.

    When you have Shezad, Akmal, Safraz, Iftikhar and Asif in the top 6 in 1 team then there is no hope against any team no matter how depleted

    Exactly. I rate Mickey for this alone.

    Also, Wasim Khan on commentary says Misbah wants a clean start for all players. Forget any short comings in past and start again. WTF is this for real? why turn a blind eye and give failures like Shezad, Akmal and Asif another chance. What difference will 1 more chance make. Surely we have seen enough of their ability

    This "1 more change" crap should come to an end for good now.

    Soo many like Hafeez, Malik and Junaid have made a career out of this. Should have been dropped after first 20 games

    Misbah's mantra "**** the team as long as I am the king".

    These mysterious young players is in everyone's head only. There are no young players.

    They are all third class or still developing.

    May be but what was the need to break the Last T20 squad?

    Ok, you have to replace hafeez and malik but what is the assurance that they will not be called back in to the squad and team.

    You have zeman,haris in squad and rizwan to replace sarfraz, none are young player but still better option.

    You don't replace middle order player with opener and one down.
