    So the final series for Misbah & Younis commences today.

    Ahmed Shehzad is likely to make a comeback to test format after Shan Masood's ordinary outing in the warm up game.

    It'll be interesting to see the bowling combination Misbah and Arthur select for the first test.

    That should be a good move. At least something new to see... though I've read he's another gentle medium pacer but better than seeing the likes of Rahat tbh.

    The bowling is abysmal right now. Its a very weak fast bowling lineup. The spinners aren't great either.
    This team will struggle to dismiss them for under 300

    If Windies dont drop catches, their fast bowling is better than us. Gabriel, Holder, Cummins all are very good. Just unprofessional and pathetic fielding

    Abbas is military medium and short in height but in domestic and national trials exhibited exceptional control and is 'quick off the pitch'. I have on authority that he was the best of the emerging talent camp bowlers by a margin.

    Whether he can switch a domestic game with bs crap balls that the idiots at the pcb supply, to the international scene remains to be seen. But even if he's ordinary, there's very few legitimate other options. He has been ripping the domestic scene apart.

    I reckon they should have played salahuddin over babar though, Babar is just not settled yet in the longer format, whereas apart from fawad, salahuddin is amongst the next two or three best performers in the longer format.

    given how much he was winging it, amir has wasted the conditions, should have been pitching it up, he just can't help bowling too short.

    here we go, run machine wahab to the crease to blunt the ball and ruin any chance of a low innings score.

    Good to see the likes of Abbas at international level. He is selected purely on merit.

    7 overs, 4 maidens, 10 runs, and 2 wickets. Mind you, 7 overs on the trot.

    Yeah, definitely some fitness problems there.

    2 really good balls for those wickets as well. Hopefully the bowlers don't let up and attack the debutant

    And proving he can only bowl like this in swinging conditions.

    Bowling really well overall.

    I'd rather have a trundler that bowls good line & length than a erratic fast bowker.

    Wahab is doing what he always does. Making sure he consistenly release the pressure.

    Indeed Amir shouldn't get leeway but what about this clown?
