      As a viewer I could clearly see Talat struggle vs Pace to the extent it looked as if he never saw the ball and this is not the type of batsman you want to boast of, yes he’s young and he gives fans the impression he is the modern day cricketer well yes he is but only against a bunch of trundlers and part time spinners, that’s not a player in my eyes, Pak needs to identify payers who may have poor domestic averages but can play good bowling as well.

      When I say trundler I don’t mean 125-130kph, Hussain can only boss 110-122 kph, lol and that’s a batsman they’re gonna play vs SA, CSA better have a good arrangement for replacement stumps because quite a few won’t exist once Hussain has done batting.

      Yea & Hafeez/Malik bat like Bradman & Sobers.

      Talat is the least of our worries when these two are continuously selected

      There is clearly double standards or different standard for each player. Some are dropped after one game, some after one series and some after a year of failures. Why (

      According to Inzi, he needs to work on he’s bowling. Amir selected due to performances in the ongoing Test series.

      “The selected team is a unanimous choice of the selection panel, including Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur. While selecting the squad, we have tried to maintain consistency, taking into consideration player performances in white-ball cricket as well as looking ahead to the upcoming ODI challenges, including the World Cup,” chairman of Pakistan’s cricket selectors Inzamam-ul-Haq said.

      Commenting on the non-selection of fast bowler Mohammad Abbas, Inzamam said: “He is very much in our scheme of things, but we have to manage his workload intelligently and smartly. He has just made a return following an injury, and we would like to give him sufficient rest before considering him for future assignments.

      “Amir’s good performance in the Test series not only made him an automatic selection, but also helped us inthe decision to rest Abbas.

      “Junaid Khan has not been considered for this tour because we feel he has to work more on his bowling since the fitness issues that he had cut short his series against New Zealand.

      “Asif Ali has been dropped due to an inconsistent and below-par performance. In his place, we have decided to give Hussain Talat an opportunity to show his mettle and skills. He is a good left-handed batsman, who can also bowl.”

      Hussain is the only uncapped player in the side, but he has represented Pakistan in 11 T20Is. In 59 List-A 50-over matches since making his debut in 2018, Hussain has scored 1,402 runs at just under 38. He has also picked up 14 wickets with his medium-past bowling. In the 2018-19 season, Hussain has scored 194 runs in seven matches with a century, while he took six wickets.

      Inzamam added: “Before finalising the squad, we spoke with the team management, which has confirmed that all the players are fit for the ODI series.”

      “I have had separate discussions with the coach and captain, and while they are disappointed with the performance in the Test series, they remain optimistic and confident that they can turn things around.

      “I have complete faith and believe in the side that is presently in South Africa. It is just that it has been a tough and difficult tour for them. I have been in this situation in the past and I know exactly what they are going through.

      “That said, I am confident that this tour will make them better and stronger cricketers.”

      Ours are Rayudu, Jadhav and Karthik. Malik and Hafeez are light years ahead of these clowns.

      Hafeez won you CT 17 and Malik is your best batsman + best fielder + more than useful part time bowler. Stop hating for no reason LOL.

      Don’t have a go at me when you don’t understand what I’m trying to say, would have rather picked Saud or Saad but this Talat has problems seeing the ball.

      The fact he’s always getting bowled, never hitting fours of 135 or 135 plus fast bowlers, Babar Azam who is not good enough for Pak fans standards has hit 30 fours all of fast bowlers in two innings and not trundlers, over the whole PSL I think Hussain hit 7-8 of fast bowlers not including the part time seam ups of Dwayne Smith, Whitely, Tanvir and Anwar Ali because they are to slow also he was dismissed quite a bit in othordox methods including bowled by Wahab and Amir who both happen to be the better bowlers from Pakistan also slipping Umaid Asif.

      In his Intl career although Keemo Paul didn’t get him out he did struggle against him, Billy Stanlake got him out like a tailender would get out, he’s just not good enough for this standard of cricket and again the blame goes to domestics because batters only see them rubbish trundlers all day long so how are there reflexes ready for 145 kph which is why I’m suprised by Shan’s improvement.

      I know he has issue with pace and short pitch bowling, which most Pakistani batter do, but it doesnt prove that he can't see the ball.

      As for Shan, the guy has done a lot of hard-work and hired his own coach to overcome his shortcoming. Most lallu panju playing in domestic neither have this drive, work ethics or determination towards the game. They only play cricket for money and not because of their passion for the game.

      150 is insane man, its not just him who cant see it, there are many in world cricket who cant see it.

      Anyways, he has technical issues for sure, but I wouldn't say that he simply cant see the ball.

      Im nkt stupid, everyone can see 150 it’s just they don’t have enough time to keep it out, Hussain looks rushed at 135 kph, gets even more rushed at 140 and at 145 he’s proved that If the ball is aimed at the stumps he will get bowled without movement, that means at 150 he won’t see it, every player sees 150 otherwise he won’t be playing Intl cricket, Pakistan batsman are being un done by bounce, look how Babar and Hafeez played Ferguson, pretty well even at 150, he has very little time does Hussain in that he has to get his balance right, then he needs to pick the line and length of the ball and then pick a shot to play, I don’t know if he sees the ball or not but it’s my own slang meaning that he’s got less time than the average batsman and if he looks rushed at 135 then god help him, to be a great player you need as much time, Hussain still hasn’t encountered swing or seam, how will he adjust to that if he’s struggling on playing straight 135 kph balls on a flat pitch?

      Malik and Hafeez are two poor batsman who struggle with bounce and movement now Hussain will struggle against bounce, movement and pace so that shows he can’t possibly do better than them who already have 19-20 average in SENA countries.

      truth be told every year I care less and less because the side is so shit, and the administrators have destroyed the sport for us. inzi falls further and further in my estimation of him every time he opens his stupid mouth. I had always defended him as a payer and captain, and wanted him to do well, but I suppose the criticisms of him just not having any iq are true.

      I hardly matters what side you pick from that squad, its just a question of how severe the phainty will be. with no conviction, I suppose they would go with:

      1. Fakhar (although they might as well drop him for the two tests he's played, and bring back Shehzad, just to continue their bs double standards of selection)
      2. Sarfraz
      3. Shan
      4. Babar
      5. Malik
      6. Hafeez
      7. Shadab
      8. Faheem
      9. Hassan
      10. Amir/afridi
      11. Shinwari

      You are confused in between picking the ball vs. not seeing the ball.

      All the explanation you wrote reveals Talat's technical faults, which nobody is denying. I have said it myself.

      However, saying that a batsman can't see if the ball sounds incorrect.

      Technique and natural ability are two completely different things, not having enough time to play fast bowlers is a lack of natural ability or talent, Some batsman like Sharma and Haris have lots of time but a batsman needs the minimum time to judge length and line and then pick a shot and execute for that Hussain is late which is why when you increase the speed he’s more likely to miss the ball or make a mistake.

      Afridi was a shit captain and a worse selector, proudly shouting to the world that he got the team he wanted before crashing out of everything he played. thanks but no thanks, please stick to snide twitter comments and shampoo commercials.
