    Hi

    Not sure if a tread is needed for this, but I really feel there are groupings involved in this team.

    I see Misbah is performing really well but the rest of the players do not seem to be improving. Like Misbah is taking a more aggressive approach to this batting and trying to improve. What about the other batsmen, how are they trying to improve?

    Are they sucking on purpose so they replace the captain?

    Highly doubt it. Malik, Kamran have learnt their lessons.

    Hafeez isn't as good friends with anyone in the current squad except Ajmal and Misbah. No particular reason for that though he just knows the other two for longer.

    Asad Shafiq is usually a one man army. Likes to keep himself, to himself.

    The rest are newcomers really. Just gelling up amongst things. Don't think there's grouping for now though.

    We have to accept that the current generation of Pak batsmen is mediocre apart from one or two.
    I want to say one thing pretty clear instead of hyping new upcoming batsmen(like the classy left hander bla bla) first look at their 'first class' & 'list A' performances,if one is performing in domestic cricket regularly it means he has something special about him.
    Now look at their list A record;
    Farhat________36.2
    Jamshed______35.0
    Hafeez_________33.4
    Shafiq__________38.9
    Misbah_________48.12*
    Malik__________37.4
    Amin__________32.62
    Kamran _______28.2

    ^^^those are the 'list A' domestic averages,
    instead of say 'grouping' against Misbah,you should say they are mediocre against/infront of Misbah.

    Agreed, Misbah is a good player but definitely not a great. Not mediocre though, that would be our next captain

    Misbah should have been picked at his pomp during the Inzamam years!

    Misbah's best years were in late 2007 till early 2011.

    Yes..averages doesnt tell you the true story.. If we go by average, then Misbah is better than Inzamam, Saeed Anwar, Ponting etc.

    We all know he is a selfish player and.his average is hugely inflated by his selfish knocks.

    selfish?. YEh the same selfish player won us two games against the Saffers in the last series..

    Selfish is someone who plays for his reputation rather for the team.. Example Afridi

    shahrukh619 read this and ignore other posts, your arguing with the same people over the same argument for the 1000th time. Give it a break. Same for you who believe Misbah is selfish. Your opinions no one can change, forget the stupid useless Misbah-Afridi argument and go on and support Pakistan, this is about Pakistan and only Pakistan, not players like Misbah,Ajmal,Hafeez, or Afridi. PAKISTAN

    Won two games against SA :Rofl

    Misbah will never be a match winner, mediocre at its best. This is a universal fact.

    Hum tere bin ab reh nahin sakte, tere bina kya wajood mera.

    Misbah fans to Afridi fans and vice versa.

    Without both groups we would never have had such great debates, discussions.
