    Versions one through 9 showed a lot of promise but failed a lot.

    Version 10 is looking promising in the last few matches. Maybe Mickey Arthur was onto something when he recommended him as a finisher type player?

    He's always been better vs Spin compared to Pace. Done well recently so well done to him. However, he struggles on away tours (minus india).

    I think he offers a lot more to the side than his batting alone. His partnerships, running between the wicket and forcing the other batsmen to convert 1s into 2s is what often gets underestimated.

    Obviously a decent part timer aswell.

    Plus he's a very safe fielder.

    He is also very well respected by the youngsters. Ask Imad, Nawaz, Amir, Hasan, Babar and Rizwan.

    Let's see how he does in Australia. Perform there and it'll really do wonders for him.

    That holds true for majority of our batsmen. Everyone is singing Babar Azam's praises but jury is still out on him as far as alien conditions are concerned.

    Malik is, Malik was and Malik will always be an average player capable of doing great things in familiar conditions and against certain oppositions. That is it. He was never a great player for all occasions, on all surfaces and against all oppositions. The fact that he can swing his arm to bowl has also improved his utility as a player over all these years.

    In all fairness and with all due respect to him, he would'nt have lasted this long in any other team with his talent or performances alone.

    The PCB need to utilise Malik more smartly than Hafeez/Afridi. Yes, he's an asset when he's in form but when he goes out of it he needs to be discarded.

    Malik needs to be phased out over the next year or so, he is the experienced member in the team and as soon as likes of Babar Azam, Sharjeel and Rizwan are able to establish themselves properly Malik needs to go and we need to get in someone young and Umar Akmal needs to kept as far away from the side as possible.

    The fact that there is a v10 is a disgrace. Sometimes teams need to draw a line under players.

    I'm sure Ian Bell v3 or v4 (never mind v10 ) might finally fulfil his potential, but England aren't going to bother to find out.

    We just keep recycling and recycling these TTFs.

    At some point you need to make a call and draw a line under a player.

    Agree but there levels of patheticness - and then some. Malik is a class in himself when it comes to patheticness.

    Malik's ODI batting in all countries:

    Pakistani ODI batsmen (300+ runs) in Aus, NZ and England vs Aus/NZ/Aus.

    Sickening to see that this guy has fans. He is playing as a genuine batsman which he is not. He was a laughing stock in england only to score in final match and saved his place in team. That final win was a big blow to longterm of Pakistan odi cricket. Both azhar and him were retained.. now malik feasted on windies bowlers and azhar won the series and they will get another series.

    If Edison gave up after attempt 3 he would not have created the lightbulb.

    Instead after 6thousand attempts he reached his goal.

    We will never give up on Malik! Even if it takes 6000 attempts we will ensure his light shines.

    Much better player than Hafeez. Good guy to have in the ODI team, one of the very few players who can finish the game and play the power shots.
