    Opening bowling pair will be vital in success of any team in upcoming WC. If you strike early, then you can force your opponent to go on back foot & disrupt their momentum.

    That said, in your opinion who should be Pakistan's opening pair with bowl.

    1)Shaheen & Hassan
    2)Shaheen & Junaid
    3)Shaheen & Hasnain
    4) Hasnain & Junaid
    5) Hasnain & Hassan
    6) Hassan & Junaid.

    Hassnain & Jinaid.
    Hassan as first change and Shaheen as second.

    Also, if opposition has left handed openers, than it wouldn't be a bad idea to use Hafeez (if he is fit).
    Might even try imad, just to stur things a little.

    In WHAT UNIVERSE?

    Waqar took his 200th Test wicket in his 37th match.

    He used to take five wickets hauls (in ODI's) in his SLEEP. Still holds the record for most fifers.

    So Amir is what now? The "Wasim Akram Plus"??
    We all know how the political one turned out.

    According to latest reports, Amir is going to get selected for World Cup cus of Prime Minister's recommendation to Inzi. Pakistan can not win World Cup with Amir ka bayan Wasim Akram ne diya tha!!

    Eik World Cup to jeeta nahi paaya Waqar Younus as Captain, player or Coach. Him and Javed were part of most World Cups for Pakistan in different capacities. He was Coach in 2011 and 2015 i guess. Wasim Akram ne eik World Cup to jeetaya/ 96 WC bhi Waqar ne harwa diya tha jab ke 99 ke WC mein zabardast performance Wasim Akram ki captaincy mein Pakistan ne di thi Waqar wasnt part of the team for major part of the tournament and Shoaib Akhtar stole the limelight in that World Cup with ferociously quick bowling!! Also, Saqlain, Wasim himself , Saeed Anwar, Razzaq, Yousuf and Inzi were all spectacular in that tournament!!

    So only games in WC count? Waqar won countless games for Pakistan with sheer brilliance which Amir is not even capable of.

    In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive,[1]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses[2] and normalizing tangential discussion,[3] whether for the troll's amusement or a specific gain.
    ( source : wikipedia )

    I think Shahzad is more single minded than a troll.
    The feeling i get from him is that his love or admiration is a bit on the extreme side. Be it with IK or Amir or anyone else.

    But than again, if i am being honest, many, if not most Pakistanis, tend to love and hate things to the very extreme.
    It's like Nusrat Javed says, "اندھی عقیدت اور نفرت میں ڈوبا معاشرہ."

    Lol, or maybe a mix of both to confuse everyone. Can’t be a complete troll like Wistful so he keeps a balance.. or tries to. But the guy is easily the most active poster of the forum along with Mohammad Bilal.

    My oldest cricket memory is watching Waqar bowl at Sharjah in 1990 as a six year old kid, and what a sight it was, what a bowler. Most of the posters here have never seen Waqar of early 90s and they don't know what they missed.

    I must say, Shaheen has been disappointing and looked very ordinary in those pre-WC conditions so far. If he doesnt perform well in next two games, then there is no point to continue to open bowling with him.

    Junaid bowled well in the first spell though.

    I would try Hasnain and Junaid opening combo in next game. Former cant do worse then Shaheen atm.
