    One is bowling all the right lines, attacking

    while others throwing short balls and getting thrashed and wasting all the good momentum

    I just don't get it. Amir's economy is 2.7 while the others have above 5, 2 are above 7

    Amir is bowling how a bowler should be bowling on a green turf while others are bowling as if its their first time bowling on it

    Amir bowled exceptionally well today and troubled all batsmen.

    theres something seriously wrong that on a green top with overcast conditions, the majority of your bowlers are bowling short. its either talent selection, or its coaching, or its strategy or its stupidity. whatever it is, whenever they win, they seem to have someone fluke a performance which carries their ineptitude.

    Never was impressed bybthis “Baagarr Billa”, Shaheen Afridi.
    Fazool ghattiya bolwer who tries to scare the batsmen by his looks rather than his bowling.

    Not sure why he’s being persisted with he hasn’t produced anything quality, worried his two wickets will cement him in the squad v India

    I guess Shinwari was a better choice than Hassan and Shaheen. We now need to play shaheen and hasnain, dont want the main bowlers to break down.

    I would play Hassan as a batsman and drop Imam.

    Amir was on a different planet.

    Shaheen is absolute trash. Should be sent home straight away

    I know daft people.
    Fair enough don't select him if there is someone better but even with his horrible stats you could tell there isn't anyone with better quality available.

    Disappointed with his batting though. He's regressed badly. At one point he looked like a solid batsman, good enough for consistent 30s

    Got 2 for 31 in his last 5 overs

    Another thing to mention here was that apart from Amir who got a little swing, the rest could not even get anything out of the wicket with overcast conditions as the whole idea and thing was that win the toss and it is a bowl first wicket with conditions favoring bowlers.

    The problem is that none of the bowlers managed to get much out of the wicket but Amir got the length right mostly and lines which did not yield him any wickets early on when they were most needed but towards the end he got them which then made up for it.

    Bowlers lack of getting the ball to swing and use the crease should be a big concern for the entire team and coaching staff, also the PCB.

    If he did that in his first spell alongside Amir it would have been a totally different game

    He's been out of form for months.. infact can't remember last time he was in form.

    These are the times that players are judged, age doesn't matter, if you're 19 or 40 and have a bad peformance in a world cup game you will get pulled up.
    This guy set the tone for Australia to build a big total

    After years of experiance, Amir doesn't need coaching, guys like hassan and especially shaheen needs coaching, and when the coach is a guy like azhar mahmood then this should be the expected results.

    Funny how people were criticizing Amir more than all the other bowlers combined.

    I feel like even Asif, who wasn't considered a top ODI bowler, would have been better than than anyone besides Amir since he is very smart and knows how to bowl at the right line/length instead of all the over effort short and wide bowls.

    Agree with OP, difference in between Amir vs. others is very obvious. Seems like former was bowling on a different pitch.

    Shaheen is still young but what is wrong with Hassan? Has he lost his mind or what? How could you become so stupid after playing 52 ODI's?

    Also, why Wahab didnt bowl his full quota of his overs?
