    Good changes if true. Harsh on Abid though as he didn’t even get a chance to show his credentials.

    Faheem Ashraf had the allrounder tag for no reason. He did little of note with the bat, nothing more than the occasional Hassan Ali or Amir cameo. It's good that he will get replaced. Also good that these games have shown what Amir brings to the table in containing the opposition, even when he is not taking many wickets.

    I don't remember if Imad is also in the WC squad but if he is, he should be going home too (instead of Abid). His no-spin spin bowling has been found out and is nothing special beyond what other part timers and Hafeez/Malik can bowl. Shadab can come in for Yasir Shah.

    Agree with you about Amir. Fahim's reliability with the bat has been as good as that of Courtney Walsh. Amir and Shadab can bat better than him anyway.


    Imad is in the WC squad but he has done well with the bat lately and seems to be in a good hitting form these days.

    Shadab is already in the world cup squad. Yasir was named as his replacement only for the ODI series.

    Hope this is true. Can't wait for Faheem to be dropped for good.

    If this happens will want Pakistan out in group stage without wining a single match. I'm all for dropping Faheem but if they drop Abid It will be tight.

    How can you do this? You will break him as a a player, people don't even do this to a club player, lanat on besharam management if they drop Abid.

    Illl make following changes:

    Amir for Hasnain, Shadab for Yasir.

    Ill keep Abid Ali part of squad and not select Asif Ali cus Abid is the reserve keeper and opener as well. If need be for Abid to be slotted in at No. 3 in case Pakistan are struggling with their top order, he can bat at 3 and Babar Azam can be moved to 5 in extreme case scenario as well.

    True but i'm over these bits and pieces players like Imad and Faheem who are found wanting against decent teams and present a huge weakness for the opposition to exploit. Is his bowling really that much better than Haris or Hafeez or Malik or even Fakhar? For me, Imad is in the same category as them and should compete with them for a spot.

    More to the point, every singe team knows that he's a dart bowling machine, which is also his stock ball. He's got zero variation and doesn't turn the ball one bit. Furthermore, you hit him three 6's straight and he will have no way to counter, this is exactly what happened when Roy took him to the cleaners. Not to mention, when batsmen are on charge, he start bowling wides down the leg, which is pathetic for a spinner/darter.
