    Stop making an ass of yourself, per usual. Learn to form a coherent argument. If you don't have any, go rest until you have one. Learn from your hero Mamoon.

    If that comment was witty, you wouldn't feel insecure enough to praise yourself for it.

    So when you said you're content with your IQ level being lower than Amin's average, did you mean his first class average or test average?

    Also ranked 4th in tests at 1 point from the third. Just look at the WC squad and tell me who the players are that should have been there. Just Fawad Alam? Funny how the whole world is stacked against Fawad and fawad only.

    Like Sarfraz, Shafiq, Sohail Khan, Anwar Ali, Afridi and Younis Khan. But just Fawad is being targeted.

    come on man. do you really think that the squad selected for world cup is the best available in Pakistan ?

    and most people are saying Fawad because he performed better than other in international cricket.. if there was someone else who had performed same as Fawad since his comeback then he would have been mentioned as well.

    whole squad is messed up but then again our team as a whole sucked.. fawad was one of the few performing guys.

    dont you think there must be some logic behind it that so many ppl are raising their voice for fawad.. surely all of them cant be fawad fans ?

    You haven't formed one credible argument despite proclaiming yourself as the Amin Defense League. Your posts deserve nothing but mockery. Bet Amin didn't know his cheap online PR agents would be embarrassing him even more instead of defending him.

    Honestly, I am not saying that Fawad or anyone else couldn't have performed better than selected players but rather that it is a relatively merit-based squad. The domestic scene is not stacked with talent and I don't there is anyone ''automatic selection'' that has been left out. If you think there are, please name them. If it's only Fawad, I somehow wonder why Pakistan squad would be based on meritocracy except for one guy and one guy only.

    Okay you compare fawad record in international cricket since his comeback with all the batsmen selected.

    i said before as well, iam not a massive fan of fawad and i agree that he will be a liability in tough situation but then who wont be ? dropping him just because of the reason that his technique is not good or he is a test player are just childish excuses. even our great batsmen havent done well in those condition so to single him out is quite unfair imo.

    I personally don't think Fawad is being targeted because he's from Karachi, because mediocres like Shafiq keep getting chances. But I want to make one thing clear; picking Younis Khan, Afridi, Sohail Khan or Anwar Ali doesn't exactly scream equality for all races; all of these guys might live in Karachi but they're all pathans. General consensus is that native Urdu speakers of Karachi are discriminated against.

    For the record, the current squad going to the world cup has 9 Punjabis, 5 Pathans and 1 native Urdu speaker. That's hardly a fair representation of ethnicities in Pakistan. And I'm a Sindhi and I'm not even complaining about Sindhis, Baluchis or others. But to have one "mohajir" represent Pakistan is not fair at all.

    That would imply I am getting paid for posting here instead of shedding tears all day long over the non-selection of a mediocre cricketer I don't even know. I guess you just have to keep yourself busy after running out of cartoons for angsty teenagers.

    Still posting irrelevant batting stills? I thought I told you almost every batsman has awkward stills. You really don't have much content left in you, do you?

    So, first, you admit that all selections are fair besides Fawad and selectors are doing their work vis-a-vis of domestic talent?

    How many times did Inzi get out in a similar way? Or for that matter how many times did he play such embarrassing shots? One dismissal over a career span of 20 years is nothing.

    You failed to consider that there are around 90 millions people living in Punjab and around 30 million pashtuns. How many urdu speakers from Karachi are there? 10 millions? Should we have every laloo panjoo mohajjir player in the team just in the name of ''fair representation''?

    Wow, shed of wits found! Even a commendable attempt at insulting? Good good.

    Now try associating that part of your brain with the current discussion, and coming up with an argument for your employer. I know that's a lot to ask, but I believe in you.

    point is not how many times.

    point is that anyone can play an ugly shot.. anyone can get out in an ugly way.

    Iam not comparing both, iam just saying that anyone can play ugly shots.. so to single him out again is unfair. As long as it is productive for him, who cares.

    Fawad gets in the most awkward positions. This is not even an argument.
