    Sarfraz (c) (don’t want him in the team but if we make it to the sf, he will definitely remain)
    Imad
    Shadab
    Amir
    10 (a right arm bowler)
    Shaheen

    Imam & Fakhar aren’t good enough. Hafeez is most likely retiring after this wc (should be removed regardless) and Wahab might retire too.

    What do you guys think?

    don't see Wahab retiring, he will be around and will probably revert back to his old self after the focus of the wc.

    malik, Hafeez, sarfraz have to all go. Sarfraz nearly losing the game yesterday was criminal, hes just not bright enough to be captain, and he needs to go back to domestic to see if the pressure affected his batting skills, or if his batting skills have diminished too.

    imam should never have been in the side for the past years anyway, but I bet he wont be thrown out, although he should. Fakhar is right on the cusp of being ejected too I think.

    1. shan
    2. fakhar
    3. babar
    4. haris
    5. Rizwan
    6. best mid order LA batter in pakistan/alternative to asif ali
    7. imad
    8. Shadab
    9. Wahab
    10. amir
    11. Shaheen/shinwari or one of the new upcoming guys.

    this is the side that should have been playing the wc if Mickey+inzi had any sense.

    2. Fakhar Zaman
    3. Babar Azam
    4. Harris Sohail c
    5. Rizwan
    6. Iftikhar Ahmed (as a replacement for Hafeez) (I would have picked Asif Ali but he can not bowl)
    7. Imad Wasim
    8. Shadab Khan
    9. Amir
    10. Shaheen

    First thing I would do is make Aamir Sohail Chief Selector and start the process that we started after 2003 WC. Aamir Sohail, Inzamam and Woolmer resurrected the team after 2003 WC and made Pakistan into one of the strongest teams of the world but baad mein aane walon ne apne aap ko zaya kiya fuzool ki activities mein like fixing aur icc bhi Pakistan cricket ko barbaad karta raha by banning Ajmal, Hafeez and others just before WCs!! Misbah ne Pakistan ki cricket ko bachaya Sarfraz buhat zabardast captain hai but World Cup ki preparation sahi tarah se nahi hui Champions Trophy jeetne ke baad 6 months tak Pakistan wale sote rahe aur jin players ne apna role play kiya tha jaise Azhar Ali, Junaid Khan aur Faheem Ashraf unko replace karke naye chehre le aaye jaise Imam ul Haq, Hasnain and Shaheen.

    @SwingNSeam

    I would make Inzi batting coach, keep Arthur as Head Coach, Azhar Mehmood did a fine job in getting Shaheen to bowl right lengths in this tournament so he keeps his place, CS Aamir Sohail.

    Post 2003 and post 2019 there is a difference. Difference is that we already have a pool of experienced young players available with us, we just need to tinker around whereas in 2004 whole team was changed some 10 players retired after the World Cup including legends like Saeed Anwar, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younus, Saqlain!!

    No point debuting 30+ year olds when they are only going to get slower for the next World Cup.

    Sarfaraz, Hafeez & Malik should call it a day.

    Fakhar should be sent back to domestic to earn his place along with Hasan Ali.

    Arthur should be sent back along with Grant & Azhar Mahmoud.

    An efficient fielding & fitness coach should be appointed.

    Sarfraz can make a comeback provided he reduces his weight and becomes fit to step onto the ground!
    Fakhar can still be useful for us and ill persist with him for sure!
    Arthur should stay, he has done a good enough job for us! Mistake has been made by planners not Arthur! Grant should go and be replaced by Inzamam! Inzamam should become batting coach and hand over Chief Selector post to Aamir Sohail! Azhar Mehmood I think did a great job in fixing Shaheen who was struggling!!

    Sarfraz is too heavy for a wicket keeper! Agar batsman hota to phir bhi chal lete!!

    Sarfaraz can not hit the big shots cus he does not have the power! He was slim when arrived and he could run between the wickets! Jab se mota hua hai bhaag bhi nahi sakta wickets ke darmyaan phele bhaag kar runs bana leta tha ab woh option bhi nahi hai uske pass!!!

    @SwingNSeam

    2 hi tareeqe hote hein runs banane ke ya to boundaries maaro ya running between the wickets per jao! Boundary woh maar nahi sakta aur running between the wickets uske weight ki waja se maari gayee!!@

    Agree with most of them except Wahab Riaz, Shaheen has earned his place. Wahab will be too old come 2023. Hasnain or Harris Rauf as 3rd pacer. Position Number 6 should go to a batting allrounder, somebody who can bowl some offspin just like Hafeez (maybe Iftikhar Ahmed).
