    There are so many wasted talents in Pakistan cricket in my opinion.

    Where teams like India made their legends play cricket for long duration, Pakistan on the other hand failed to honor its superstars who were far bigger than anything India could ever dream of producing.

    If you ask me players like Saqlain Mushtaq who had his career from 1998 to 2003 - 5 years after which he disappeared.

    Similarly, where did Azhar Mehmood disappear after 2003?

    Some other talents like Wajahat ullah Wasti wasnt heard of after 99 World Cup.

    There are other lots of examples. I seriously believe if you have found a player worth atleast above average then he should play for 2 decades if he can maintain his form and fitness.

    What do you guys say? You invest so much into making a player and when a player becomes a finished product, he leaves cricket that costs you so much. Similar is the example of Mohd Amir.

    Asim Kamal should have atleast played till 2011 World Cup if not more as he was 31 in 2007 and he wasnt heard of after Inzi era.
    Salman Butt, Mohd Asif and Mohd Amir what they did to themselves.
    Fawad Alam - casualty of selectors!

    Imran Nazir was a t20 player, he was a great strokemaker but he had no control over his game and he could not defend for his life so in my opinion therefore he was only a t20 player which is not good enough imo. If he wanted to become like Afridi then he should have learned how to bowl too like Afridi! Only batting like Afridi is not good enough!!

    Sadaf success primarily is based on weak Pakistani batsman batting on damp green pitches with a dukes and grace ball. Even if he does swing the ball so does Colin Degrandhomme and Sam Curran. But it's about speed. You can't bowl 125 and expect results.

    Abbas was different. Because he seems the ball sharply in.
