    Agha Salman played a good hand in the win yesterday. He's not a hitter and probably has a bias for the off-side but I'm sure Mickey will be keeping a close eye on him.

    Looks like a very classy strokemaker. I hope Mickey & Inzi have taken notice.

    Classy bat, especially against spin.

    Struggles somewhat against pace

    Very impressed with his batting

    He needs to work on his shot range esp against pace

    Wish he was with a better team in PSL so we could see more of him this season

    He is a good player but not the finished article, If he doesn’t know how to play a pull or Hook you can’t install that in him but you can teach him how to handle short pitched stuff, It’s either he gets in line of the ball and ducks or he tries to monouver the Ball like Azhar Ali does, but of course in a T20 you are going to play a pull or Hook so you can’t blame him.

    Seems a decent batsman, probably the best upcoming batsman against spin, and he is a right handed batsman which is a bonus.

    He has the basics covered which is extremely rare among Pakistani batsman these days.

    Has some potential but nowhere near an international product. Easily need 2-3 years down the line if they continue to work on him, specially on "how to play shot ball" skill.

    Hussain Talat isn’t of Intl level as well but once someone gets the hype it just becomes unrealistic and pathetic, If Talat is struggling against the premier bowlers of Pakistan in Amir and Wahab and is looking all at sea against Imran Tahir than he is no where near Intl level quality.

    The only accomplished young batsman seems to be Babar and that’s the truth, Salman is a very good prospect who needs to be worked on.

    Neither Talat nor Salman are of Intl level, but I would say Talat is holding the edge if you compare these two. So far, both have played one clutch inning, in difficult circumstance and made useful contribution to the total. And the best part was that, both innings came in the "chase".

    That said, both possess plenty of raw potential but also seems issue against short ball, balance and head position. But these are things which they can improve upon with time working with Mickey and other coaches. And that why I believe these two should be with national squad (at least one if not both), because they wouldn't learn much playing in domestic system Train them with the national coaches, send them on A-tour and side games and even have them play one odd game if series is already decided. And same goes for Shaheen. This way, in a year or two maybe they'll be ready for international cricket.

    I reckon yesterday Mickey too said good words about Salman and earlier also praised Talat's inning too.

    Can be a very good ODI batsman in the middle order. Can't play big shots so not very effective in T20s.
