      Never criticised Inzis selection but I've got two problems.

      Where is Hussain Talat and the extra Fast bowler?

      How on earth Nawaz is able to make room in T20 in NZ???

      What will it take for Farhan, Maqsood and Talat to be selected, at least in T20? Easily Farhan can come in for Selfie, Maqsood/Talat can easily swap Hackfeez and a young fast bowler instead of Nawaz, whats so difficult in it to understand Mr. Revolutionary^

      I have started to believe that, the Revolutionary is biased in his selection and favor those who he likes.

      When he'll be 32, well passed his prime and toward his decline. And then if he performs well, then would be lucky to play till 36/37 and by then we all will be cursing him to leave cricket.

      This is Pakistan cricket for you.

      Inzy is a clown, why couldn't he send Ahmed Bashir or Waqas Ahmed, in conditions which suits for pace bowling? If you're not going to try new pacers in NZ then where would you take them? UAE? huh.

      Speaking of Bashir, found the following video of his bowling.

      Wheeler recalled to New Zealand squad for Pakistan T20Is

      Ben Wheeler, the left-arm pacer, has been recalled to the New Zealand squad for the three-match T20I series against Pakistan, which begins on January 22 in Wellington. The 26-year-old, who last played against South Africa in February 2017, is part of a 15-member squad which includes Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, and Lockie Ferguson, who will be rested at different parts during the series.

      Meanwhile, Seth Rance, who is also part of the T20I squad, has been selected for the final ODI against Pakistan in place of Boult, who has been rested for that game and the first T20I. Rance was part of the limited-overs squads that took on Windies recently but wasn't selected for the first four ODIs against Pakistan.

      New Zealand T20 squad: Kane Williamson (c), Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor (1st game only), Tom Bruce, Glenn Phillips, Colin de Grandhomme, Anaru Kitchen, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee (1st and 3rd games only), Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson (2nd and 3rd games only), Ben Wheeler, Seth Rance, Trent Boult (2nd and 3rd games only).

      "Ben's ability to swing the ball makes him a threatening bowler and his batting power and athleticism in the field compliments that nicely. It will be nice to see more of Ben and Seth while we manage the workloads of Tim and Trent," Gavin Larsen, the New Zealand chief selector, said on Wednesday (January 17).

      New Zealand, who lead the ODI series 4-0, will play the final 50-over game at Basin Reserve on January 19 and have a two-day gap before the first T20I, which will be held at the Westpac Stadium. The second T20I will be played at Eden Park in Auckland on January 25, while the final match of the series is scheduled to be played at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on January 28.

      1. Fakhar
      2. Sarfraz
      3. Hafeez
      4. Amin
      5. Malik
      6. Babar/Shehzad/Harris/scare crow? (all too slow for T20Is - basically not a single decent no. 6 in squad)
      7. Faheem
      8. Shadab
      9. Hassan
      10. Amir
      11. Raees

      Sarfraz has to open. He's got to play a busy innings upfront.
      Hafeez at 3 is not ideal but no other viable option.
      Amin has to be given a run at 4.
      Malik is ideal to come in at 12th over and go for quick runs after couple of overs settling in.
      No. 6 is a big problem. Can't see a suitable player in this team for the role of stabilising the team in case of a collapse and quick runs when needed.
      Batting is very light. Bowling looks decent albeit light on an off spinner

      I think pitches are assisting the spinners a little bit the reason why Mickey went for 2 spinners to go with 4 pacers. Also, another reason for shooting Hafeez was that he had performed in 2 out of 5 matches and had been terribly short of runs for a long time in past too. So, that's Mickey' method of bringing players into form from rust! The same thing he does with Wahab Riaz and now he is doing it to Hafeez and others!!

      Not a bad thing overall, however this squad is so bad that without his batting a loss is more likely with these replacements. He was needed this series. Should play replacements if they are better than the current player or have a good prospect. These replacements have neither

      Mickey is a forward thinker.

      Question for you guys, Would you rather have to wilt with Malik and Hafeez only for them to perform like little girls holding hands at the WC or would you want to see New players like Talat and Sahibzada Farhaan come in now.

      Malik has stated 2019 will be his last ODI tournament and he will retire after that but the shameless human being wants to carry on in T20s until the 2020 WC, Pizza has had his best years behind him, he isn't a bad player but I know he won't perform when it matters then it will hurt and it will hurt badly because you have supported two average players only for them to dissapoint.

      They have shown you the signs which are enough to drop them.

      Malik is scared as when he faces the bigger teams.

      If you can do what you did to Wasim Akram then don't make Pizza and Malik look like saints.

      Yeah I’d drop Hafeez, especially if he ain’t bowling. Malik is a tough one, because he’s an absolute beast in Asia, but goes missing on away tours.

      We have plenty of UAE beasts if the PCB want to evolve the cricket they should move out from the UAE as its killing our cricket slowly.
