What about Haris, Fawad, even Umar Akmal? But Kamran is a big no no for tests.
They are not openers/. Kamran needs to be compared with opening choices! His competitor in opening dept is Ahmed Shahzad!
If common sense prevails (highly unlikely in Pakistan) then they should perhaps look to implement something like this.
Sami Aslam/Hafeez (Professor is a likely option as he has bowling advantage)
Fawad/Salahuddin/Haris (Salahuddin is a likely option as he has been included in the Test side for now)
^ Wants common sense to prevail but then proceeds to name Hafeez as his Test opener.
If you were the chairman of PCB or King of Pakistan, otherwise that is not happening ever.
Mark my words Azhar batting @4 & Asad @5 & Usman/haris @6 by the end of 2017 in test. Salman Butt might return to open with Shehzad.
Should stick to two solid openers and think of this in the long-term and not series-by-series. Masood, Sami Aslam or someone else but whoever it is, deserves a long go.
Azhar, Babar, Shafiq, (new guy), Sarfaraz next.
4 bowlers afterwards.
Why everyone want to remove Babar from 3 is beyond me!!!
Leave the guy there & allow him time to make it his own inshaallah for long long time to come.
we miss you both of the players because this is a backbone of the Pakistan team
Only reason to do it would be to accomodate Shadab, otherwise makes no sense.

this players are the cream of the Pakistan team
