    That's a pretty solid team there but you're a seamer short, here's mine...

    Mohammad Hafeez (Wolves)
    Kamran Akmal (wk) (Lions)
    Rana Naved (Stallions)
    Umar Akmal (Lions)
    Shoaib Malik (c) (Stallions)
    Fawad Alam (Dolphins)
    Shahid Afridi (Dolphons)
    Abdul Razzaq (Stallions)
    Aizaz Cheema (Lions)
    Mohammad Irfan (Tigers)
    Saeed Ajmal (Wolves)

    ...I wasn't going to include Irfan but when I looked through the bowling performances he was one of the best seamers. His Eco was fantastic and the quality of his wickets was good too. Jamshed, Butt, Ahmed and Shoaib Khan. 3 of whom have played international cricket.

    @captain

    I picked him as a bowler who might come off with the bat once in the tournament. When didnt he perform as a bowler?

    2/20 against the Eagles, 1/27 against the Hawks and 3/21 against the mighty Stallions. He did well in all the games, having him keeping the Eco at 5.7 is worth it in itself

    thats fine nothing spectacular to write home about though, also Merc he was enlisted as an Allrounder, needs to come off with the bat, which was minimal and irresponsible in the SF. if we want to only look at him as a bowler, than there are better options out there (abdur rehman was just as good as him in bowling dept. and fared better in batting).

    Code:
    Khalid Latif			Karachi Dolphins
    Mohammed Hafeez			Faislabad Wolves
    Kamran Akmal			Lahore Lions
    Shoaib Malik			Sialkot Stallions
    Umar Akmal			Lahore Lions
    Rana Naved			Sialkot Stallions
    Abdul Razzaq			Sialkot Stallions
    Ajeez cheema			Lahore Lions
    Zulfiqar Babar			Multan Tigers
    Saeed Ajmal			Faislabad Wolves
    Shahid Afridi			Karachi Dolphins
    
    All players performed in most of matches with the exception of Shahid Afridi but he did well with the bowl, with a good economy and strike rate.

    Zulfiqar Babar only player which didn't reach semi finals but I was impressed by him in all of Multans matches.

    Merc, You missed Rana batting at number 4.
    So I have:
    Cheema
    Razzaq
    Rana
    Afridi
    Ajmal
    Hafeez

    3 seamers, 2 specialist spinners and Hafeez also did a good job with the ball.

    There were lots of good performers to choose from. Zufiqar Babar, ,Anwar Ali, Irfan, Asad Ali etc. in bowling and Fawad Alam, Tahir Mughal, Faisal Iqbal etc. in batting.

    Only Mohd. Hafeez had no competition, imo.

    Captain, when did he really fail?

    Not only was he superb with the ball, with bat he got two innings. 4* and 29 off 11 balls. S/R of 253, best in the tournament.

    And why dont you enter your team instead of criticizing others'? :p

    Ghulam, Zulfiqar was impressive, but why have him when you can have a batsman for him? You already have 5 and a half bowlers in your team.

    And whats the deal with Afridi at 11?
