    Naseem Shah is one bowler who has pace, is accurate and can really cause damage if he bowls with precision at a high speed... He is a real asset for us and we must use him with care too so that we might not lose him... we got to utilize him in limited overs cricket with that new ball as Amirs partner... Shaheen can be used as 1st change..

    Faheem Ashraf is a new ball specialist imo.. he can be considered too but Naseem Shah is a wicket taker u need wicket takers upfront.. .those who can provide u early wickets... early wickets u need... atleast 1 or 2 wickets so that you are able to get into that middle order of opponent teams.. what is happening currently we are not able to get past Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli... when we will expose that middle order then only we are going to know how good they are and they are not as strong as we think they are... they are too reliant on their top 3 and Dhoni at present... in the middle order there is a big vaccum imo.

    We hardly play India, so why care so much about them?

    Nahi ill bowl Naseem Shah with new ball and Shaheen 1st change. We desperately need atleast 1 wicket with that new ball to expose the top and middle order as quick as possible. Shaheen could not break through in Asia Cup 2018 against India.

    Shaeen is much matured now, and there is no guarantee that Naseem or Amir will make a break through. Why do you see everything through Indian glasses?

    Naseem has extra pace which can be useful. We dont have to see names. We have to find a breakthrough with that new ball which is the most important thing. We need atleast 1 wicket with that new ball whichever opposition we are playing against. Amir is our No. 1 bowler right and he will always be bowling with that new ball. His partner is going to be either Shaheen or Naseem. Shaheen failed in that match to find a breakthrough with that new ball and with Naseem, you have certain advantages, he is quick, he is young, he is fearless and he will bowl at pace, he will not see who is facing him so he is the one who can produce that breakthrough or even more wickets at the top. Potential of Naseem Shah is enormous. Although, Shaheen has proven to be our top bowler in all formats but you need something extra with that new ball and that Naseem can provide. Also, with Naseem he is a right armer to go with Amirs left arm so right arm left arm combination will work well and Shaheen and Shinwari can bowl with that semi new ball as change ups.

    Amir also has failed to take ANY wicket in many matches. Shinwari should never come close to team, I even prefer Wahab over him.

    You may be right but mujhe kisi bhi tarah new ball se atleast 1 wicket chahye ziada nahi 1 wicket is must. Semi new ball se Shaheen and Shinwari with their left arm angle is a very big threat aur Naseem mein mujhe eik fearlessness nazar aati hai he is youth he will run in, he will not see batsman facing him, he has that Shoaib Akhtar Mohd Sami thing about him which is what we need from other end with new ball to Amir. Mujhe wicket chahye new ball se kisi bhi tarah aur agar Amir wicket lene mein fail ho jata hai to mujhe Naseem mein ability nazar arahi hai he can make breakthroughs. Shaheen aur Shinwari with semi new ball left arm angle will be lethal. Problem is jab new ball se wicket nahi milta hai to puri team trouble mein ajati hai.. Phir yeh log jab zor lagate hein to runs leak hona shuru hote hein, finally they get a breakthrough when 100+ runs are on the board and then writing is on the wall... new ball se sirf 1 breakthrough mil jaye then 2 out of top 3 will be exposed to that feisty spell of bowling of Shaheen and Shinwari. 4 fast bowlers hein jab 2 rest kareinge to baki 2 karwayeinge. Phir jab 28 over hojayenge to part time spinners aayeinge they will bowl those middle overs and then fast bowlers will come back at the end. New ball is the key. New ball per 1 wicket lazmi hai and then Shaheen and Shinwari spell will hold the key to the match. They will search hard for wickets in that middle spell.

    Naseem ka advantage yeh hai ke he is right arm Amir is left arm aur Naseem wicket to wicket bowl karta hai he does not stray, he bowls quick and he bowls wicket to wicket... whereas Shaheen at times new white ball control nahi kar paata zor lagata hai edges 3rd 4th slip se hote hue boundary ho jati hai and that provides early momentum to batsmen which is what they want.. we want somebody who is accurate with that new ball which Amir and Naseem are.. Shaheen controls semi new ball better..

    Look at the movement in Nasim's ball at 0:35 -- followed be two away swingers. Awesome!
