    In my opinion, Pakistan need those players more who go up the order and take initiative than those who slog down the order specially in English conditions! Pakistan ke decline ki waja yehi hai ke Pakistan ne hamesha Umar Akmal jaise naehl logon ko Younus Khan jaise ehl logon per prefer kiya hai jo niche se hit lagate hein!! Uper se ja ker attack karna aur foundation daalna ziada mushkil kaam hai as compared to slogging down the order. Have a look at this lineup:

    1. Imam
    2. Fakhar
    3. Abid Ali (Keeper) (Can bat like Sachin Tendulkar, abs majestic with his strokeplay)
    4. Babar Azam
    5. Harris Sohail
    6. Hafeez
    7. Shoaib Malik
    8. Fahim Ashraf
    9. Amir
    10. Hassan
    11. Junaid / Hasnain
    This lineup gives more flexibility and room to top 4 to go out and play their strokes without any fear as in case of any hiccup they have experienced batsmen like Harris Sohail, Hafeez and Shoaib Malik who can help them consolidate!! This is what india usually do! They give full license to their top order to go out and play their strokes cus they know they have MS Dhoni whom they can fall back upon in case of a crisis! And what happens cus of this their top order goes out and bats aggressively and piles runs and when they lose wickets, they have MS Dhoni who can bat according to given situation and finish the game!! This is the strategy Pakistan should work with! And Sarfraz is no longer required in short format in my opinion!! Sarfraz should stick to test cricket now!!

    He played everything that Sachin used to play in his 1 innings! He cover drove handsomely! His backfoot punches were reminiscent of Sachin, he hooked and pulled to perfection, he square cut with precision!!

    Abid Ali uper ja kar 4 achi boundaries bhi lagaye ga to us ka ziada impact hoga Asif Ali ke sixes se!! In the same way as Babar Azam's classical boundaries do!!

    he is a smashing batsman too when he gets going and he can keep as well so he might as well replace Sarfraz as keeper and is a much better batsman than him and he is an opener!!

    One game is not enough to judge his batting!! When he will get going, he will really smash everybody like he did on his debut against Aus!!

    That was just luck by the looks of it. Anyone can have one good game. Hasn’t done anything since.

    Naseer was talking about a flaw in his technique. Our commies only look at runs not technique or anything. Rameez said he had a very good technique.

    I would take @Shahzad.Firdous word over Nasser. No questions asked.

    Abid Tendulkar hai toh Tendulkar hai.

    Bhai puri series mein khilaya nahi jab team ka morale down hogaya to last match mein chance de diya so that agar fail hojaye to drop hojaye khud ba khud! Abid Ali had played no warmup match and thrown straight into the last game of the series whereas Harris Sohail jo ache nick mein tha he could have been a better choice in last game! Abid ko khilane ki waja se eik nahi teen batsman out hue uper! Phela Fakhar Zaman jo ke eik flamebuoyant player hai aur jo ziada shots khelne wala batsman hota hai woh kabhi strike nahi leta first up but cus Abid Ali was new and playing after some time therefore Fakhar took strike and got out! Abid was playing first and only match of the tour i guess he got under pressure and got out! Hafeez came in with 2 wickets down and got out too!! Had Harris played he would have taken strike and ensured neither he got out and Fakhar got time to see whats happening at other end! Small things like these make a lot of difference and are a difference between success and defeat in cricket!!
