    Miandad wasnt a regular bowler for most part of his career. Sohail was a very regular part time bowler! And, he was the designated partnership breaker! Left arm part time spinners are usually assigned this role! Jayasurya used to do it for Slanka. Aamir Sohail, Afridi and Hafeez used to do it for Pakistan in test cricket!!

    Ranatunga was like their Steve Waugh and Attapatu would have to miss out for Arjuna in my opinion! You can make Jayawardene into opener just like Rahul Dravid occasionally used to open or did so in his last England tour before retirement. Sehwag and Dravid were opening, Laxman was at 3, Sachin 4 on their last England tour!

    England are currently playing with 6 regular bowlers in test cricket (some of them proper allrounders): Anderson, Broad, Curran, Stokes, Moeen Ali and Adeel Rasheed.

    You would count Stokes, Moeen and Curran as allrounders out of these. Broad and Adeel Rasheed can hold the bat as well. Only Anderson is a proper tailender!

    What category did Miandad bowl? And Younus Khan used to bowl a bit of medium pace. thats not good enough. You need someone who can bowl properly and can bowl spin,. Aamir Sohail was a proper batting allrounder just like Jayasurya!!

    England are INDEED blessed. They are becoming what SA was during the 90's.
    When they had McMillan, Cronje, Klusner, Pollock, Kallis. There were a few more as well.

    Younus bowled leg breaks as well.
    He was bowling leggies when McMillan of NZ hit him for 26 in an over. It was the most in a six ball over at the time.

    Miandad bowled over 1200 balls in Tests, taking 17 wickets at 40. And he was a leggie as well.

    Aamer took 25 wickets in Tests, only 8 more than Miandad did, while bowling almost twice as many balls...and he took those wickets at 42 a piece, again thats 2 more than Miandad's average.

    Havent seen Miandad's bowling so cant comment on him but if Aamir Sohail has bowled twice the number of deliveries than Miandad while taking 8 more wickets at 42 apiece averaging two more than Miandad then maths suggest Sohail used to bowl regularly in all formats of the game and was economical as well. It's about being a regular option with the ball. Sohail bowled for his entire career and likewise Hafeez and Malik also bowled their entire career and bowling was in addition to their batting whereas in case of Miandad, havent seen his bowling though, but he wont be considered an allrounder or a batting allrounder. Miandad would be considered as a specialist batsman! It's about being a regular and consistent option!
    Younus ki bowling ka to Allah hi hafiz hai! lol

    The reason we are historically successful than india, we take pride in our bowling and play proper options instead of relying on bits and pieces players and long batting lineup!!

    That was my point for not picking Aamer in Tests. When you have Imran, Wasim, Waqar, Saqlain and Amir / Fazal, you REALLY don't need a sixth option.

    Saqlain is the only spinner amongst them and if he bowls too much he will be worked out as well as fatigue and every other factor! You need a bit of variety when batsmen get used to one particular bowler he is nullified so you need options up your sleeve as well!! And when its turning, you can employ both spinners from opposite ends on a fifth day pitch as well, that is an important aspect of spinners game as well!!

    Sohail wont be required to bowl in the first innings, he will be required in 2nd innings when pitch will start to offer turn to spinners. Thats when he becomes your 5th bowler and 92 Imran becomes your 6th bowler!!

    On a turning pitch, I would go with Wasim, Waqar, Saqlain, Mushtaq, Imran and Sohail as my attack.
