    Seriously batayein Haider Ali mein aapko talent nazar aata hai kiya?? Haider Ali is only good for T20 cricket imo... Asif Ali to mere hisaab se buhat talented hai but usko as a hitter use karna chahye jab hitting ka platform set ho... Faheem Ashraf proper batsman ban gaya hai Faheem Ashraf ko aur Rizwan ko Asif se uper batting karni chahye but Asif Ali buhat hi quality hitter hai imo... Uski 90 per cent hits ground se bahir jaati hein jab bhi woh maarta hai usko confidence dene ki zaroorat hai jao apna game khelo u need a player like him in limited overs cricket... Wicket sambhalne ke liye 7 batsman hein humare pass...

    With Shoaib Malik, there is another factor of youth support... He carries young players well and is a positive influence on young players and guides them.. That factor will also be important for Pakistan's success in the World Cup imo...

    11 kiya khilao ge.. mere hisaab se agar Malik aur Hafeez nahi khilate hein to yeh 11 khelegi:

    1. Imam
    2. Shan
    3. Fakhar
    4. Babar
    5. Rizwan
    6. Faheem Ashraf
    7. Asif Ali
    8. Shadab
    9. Hassan Ali
    10. Shaheen Afridi
    11. Harris Rauf
    Reserves: Hasnain, Ammad Butt, Usman Qadir, M. Nawaz, Sarfraz, Danish Aziz, Sharjeel Khan.

    Haider Ali ka phir bhi chance nahi hai... T20s mein khilana chahye filhaal Haider Ali ko... Baad mein ODIs mein laayein..

    Malik is the last player who was mediocre... Malik's performance speaks for itself... Inzi ke Captaincy era mein uski performance top class thi phir woh Captain bana uski performance buhat achi thi... Uske baad woh i think 2009-10 tak team ka part tha uske baad usko 2011 World Cup mein drop kar diya gaya... 2012 Aane Do series mein woh khela aur woh series Pakistan ne jeeti India mein.. Uske baad phir drop kar diya gaya Malik ko... 2015 World Cup ke baad Shoaib Malik ne comeback kiya aur buhat consistent performance di us ne next 4 years... 2019 World Cup ke baad use drop kar diya gaya to develop a new team but agar yeh new larke agar deliver nahi kar paate hein in next year or so, then PCB might have to bring back 2 senior pros - Hafeez and Malik... Right now, we have a strong top 3 in Imam, Fakhar and Babar... I think we need to include Shan Masood in ODI cricket too as he is an experienced test cricketer aur mere hisaab se Fakhar is more comfortable at No. 3 than opening... Opening mein woh jaldi out ho jata hai... No. 3 per usko thora sa chance mil jata hai settle hone ka aur ball thora sa purana ho jata hai jiski waja se woh lamba khelne mein successful hota hai...

    I don't think so.
    see, it's not about winning one or two matches with the "old guard" but grooming a bunch for the next decade.

    I have changed my opinion... I agree with you guys... We cant keep playing Hafeez and Malik till they are 50 year old... We have to groom young players for future... Hafeez ka case different hai he is in such good form... Even, today you saw we were struggling to beat Zimbabwe even and had it not been for Hafeez's bowling, we would have lost today... But, you cant judge on the basis of T20 cricket any team.. Any team can beat any good team on a given day...
    Danish Aziz acha prospect hai imo and he can play as middle order batsman and he bowls part time left arm spin too so he can serve as 6th/ 7th bowler whenever needed...
    Haider Ali aur Asif Ali bhi groom ho rahe hein for future...

    Asif can't be groomed, he has no room for growth. (mentally)

    Nahi yaar cant blame Asif for today,... Aaj to game ki situation hi aisi thi he had to hit out from word go... Asif ko freedom dene ki zaroorat hai.. Failures honge but we need to back these players - Danish Aziz, Haider Ali and Asif Ali in my opinion for long term future...

    Asif Ali ki hitting buhat clean hai imo... But, he needs some time in the middle to hit big... He needs atleast 20-30 runs under his belt before he can decide to go for big shots imo...

    Same problem with Asif Ali which Fakhar Zaman was facing for a long time... Fakhar was not getting time in the middle cus of his role in the opening partnership with Imam ul Haq who was supposed to play anchor... Fakhar therefore had to adopt aggressive role...

    Shahid Afridi ka bhi yehi problem tha... Jab Afridi apne aapko thora sa time de deta tha to score kar jata tha but jab woh pheli doosri ball per hit lagata tha to pavilion mein hota tha... Kisi bhi hitter ke liye eye sab se important hoti hai.,.. Eye usi waqt develop hoti hai jab woh apne aap ko wicket per thora sa time deta hai... Zahir si baat hai jab ball nazar aayega clear tabhi aapki hits connect hongi... Blind hitting koi bhi nahi kar sakta hai... Yeh masla even Flintoff ke saath bhi tha but Flintoff apne aapko time deta tha... Chahe koi bhi format ho you need atleast 10-12 deliveries to get used to conditions and pitch...
