    Nice lineup, i would have preferred Fawad in there but as we all know very well, selectors are not going to pick him.

    If Azher gains his form today? I would replace Hafeez with him, @3.

    Replace Javed with Gavasker and i agree with the rest. Sanga comes a close second to Gavasker .

    Azhar Ali's career depends on this innings! If he does not score, he will be out and he will have to go back to domestic to make a comeback but there are not enough replacements for him either! He is the experienced guy, will make a comeback after scoring in the domestic!!

    Good one but Azher shouldn't open, he should bat at 3. Especially since neither Haris nor Baber seem to have what it takes to bat @3.

    The last thee pacers should be Shaheen/ Hamza/ Shinwari

    Rahat Ali should also be considered as he has some good swing and movement specially in seaming conditions or on dusty UAE pitches!

    It doesn't matter when players have good chemistry/ decent talent.
    Don't believe me?

    Haynes/Greneche
    Hayden/Langer
    Anwer/Sohail
    Jiyasuriya/Tharanga

    Rahat is very smart@ He knows how to bowl on these type of pitches specially!! He is always relaxed, moves the ball, relies on wrists to move the ball!

    I say we rotate them, with Abbas getting a tests rest every second series and the other slot is used to test out talent. Untill someone cements his place.

    Azhar final getting back in his groove and you're dropping him :confused:.

    Seems like him and Yasir both lacked match practice.

    I have picked him as a last minute change@

    I would keep him on same no.3 and will drop Bobby and replace him with Hafeez.

    Waqas Maqsood selected for the wrong format, he’s more of a Test bowler, swings the ball upfront, pace is like Abbas but he is also very accurate and he’s got good players out.

    Hussain Talat is there as he is a medium pace allrounder more of a batsman than bowler! He will act as 4th pacer in foreign conditions and 3rd pacer in UAE (along with Yasir Shah, Bilal Asif and Hafeez as spinners and Abbas and Shaheen as pacers).
    He is a better option than Fahim Ashraf in test cricket!

    With Harris Sohail now fixed at 4, we can accommodate only one of Malik or Hafeez in that middle order. Imam will come back eventually. Both Hafeez and Malik are a little inconsistent with the bat! Hafeez is the man in form right now! So as I see it odi team:
    I think Azhar is a better choice than Imam in odis!

    1. Azhar
    2. Fakhar
    3. Babar
    4. Harris Sohail
    5. Hafeez / Malik (choose one, my choice right now is slightly Hafeez)
    6. Sarfraz
    7. Shadab
    8. Fahim (outside Asia) / Malik (In Asia)
    9. Shaheen
    10. Abbas
    11. Junaid / Fahim

    Replace Hafeez with Fakhar. Enough of Hafeez.

    Also need a replacement for Shafiq.
