    Pathetic bowler. Junaid is ten times the bowler he will ever be.

    Very unskilful/untalented bowler. I appreciate he tries and has pace, plus he can bat a bit, but really Wahab Riaz has no practical value for the team imho

    First Pakistan bowler since Mohammad Sami (and maybe Sohail Khan) who I've felt sorry for rather than criticized/applauded. I appreciate the effort and commitment he brings but basically, along with pace, that's his only standout point

    I agree. He is one of those work horses who gives their all for the team, but are unfortunately just not good enough.

    Mohd Sami is a far better option than him in ODI, if pace and batting capabilities are requisities for selection in the final 11. Hammad Azam and Razzaq are other options. There is no logical reason of his selection in the team. Even his domestic records are nothing to be proud of.

    we lack a bit of balance, and he occasionally contributes with the bat so the best replacement would be hammad, who can give us more consistent runs and a few tight overs in the middle of the innings

    He is out of form, but he is fast bowler, and should be persist with, and even if not selected under 11 team. You don't find 90 mph bowler anywhere, and therefore, it's important to be patient with him. Sooner or later, his form will come back, and he is good batsman - better than the entire batting line.

    Unfortunately he has lacked in still not being able to learn the positioning of his wrist and sprays the ball around way too much and offers too many loose deliveries to hit. He's consistently getting worse and if this continues it won't be long till he finds himself out of the team for sometime once again. He really does need to focus on his bowling much more as he does have the pace but needs to get his line and seam positioning right to extract much out of the surface.

    The last time when I saw him LIVE when he looked threatening was in the CT13 match in England v West Indies where he did crank up some good pace and was getting a little help off the pitch.

    He can bowl, has the potential and the pace, but he seems to be the same since his debut. He hasn't learned anything new nor has he given anything new. He relies too much on pitch conditions for help, in good conditions he can be a handful however, on flat wickets he seems to play for the opposition. He's fiery and aggressive bit he isn't cut out to be a "Pakistani phast boler", should try to play county in England or Australia, we have far better and more deserving options

    Wahab, Afridi and Hafeez. These three need to pack their bags and leave the team alone. Im sure we are able to find good enough replacements for them as it is not like they perform consistently or at all anyway.

    One question;

    Would it be beneficial to play 3 spinners in the WC in Aus and NZ?

    The obvious answer would be NO. Then what do we do with Hafeez and Afridi then? Both of them are Bowling A/Rs or bowlers(depends on the day... sigh......).

    I don't give a crap about whether we lose the next 10 matches as long as we blood a deserving player and profile for a position which he can turn to his own and perform.
