    Junaid and Amir/Shaheen

    Junaid has won my vote after last match's performance. Experience does matter and he showed it.

    Opening bowling remains a serious concern for us.

    On one hand we have Shaheen who throws away game single single-handedly - dont think he's good enough to be part of final XI.

    On other than we're wicketless Amir, however, I will take him any day over Shaheen, who lose us games in first 6/7 overs.

    I reckon Hassan should start bowling with new ball along with Amir.

    Hassan and amir, or Amir and Imad.

    Shaheen has been very poor lately and should be left out.Wahab should bowl with old ball.

    Get rid of Shaheen. Absolute trash he has turned out to be.

    Amir, Hassan and Wahab in the lineup all day long.

    Amir and Hassan to open.

    Amir to bowl all his overs before 35th over.
    Hassan to bowl 3 over spells in 3 parts during innings.
    Make Wahab come on after 25th over and bowl when ball is old.
    Bowl spinners in between.

    2 big mistakes to be avoided

    1. Leaving Amirs overs until end. He is most economical and effective with a new ball. Bowl him out at start of innings.

    2. Bowling Wahab with new ball. Wahab is an old ball bowler. He is trash with a new ball. Keep him away from first 25 overs. Then bowl him when the ball gets scuffed and he's a nightmare.

    Hassan is the most versatile. Bowl him in short spells and ask him to aim for stumps. Bowl full and try for yorkers and skiddy bouncers. He will make breakthroughs

    1. Amir's 8 overs are being bowled in first 36 overs, he is only bowling 1 over at death.
    2. Wahab has been utlized with the old ball here. He is bowling a first spell of 4 overs, then 3 overs between 37-42 and 2 overs at the end which means he is bowling 5 of his 9 overs in last 14 overs,.
    3. Hassan has been utilized in short spells, an initial spell of 4 overs with the new ball, 3 overs between 31-36 and 1 over at the death.

    Alternate plan:

    1-16 Amir 8 overs Hassan 4 Wahab 4.
    17-30 Imad 7 Shadab 7.
    31-35 Hassan 3 Amir 2. (all overs of Amir complete within 35 overs your first target accomplished @Bilal123 )
    36-41 Wahab 3 Imad 3
    42-50 Shadab 3 Hassan 3 Wahab 3.
    All 3 targets accomplished. Wahab bowls his last 6 in last 14. Hassan bowls 3 spells.

    That is what you get when you promote raw teenagers before they are "ripe".

    The most important thing: bowl full and at the stumps with several yorkers per over. If you don't follow this, expect to be trashed. I believe if Shaheen had just done this, he wouldn't have been as complete rubbish as he has been lately. If Wahab goes back to his short and wide routine again, he will be complete rubbish as well. I feel this point can not be stressed enough and needs to be constantly enforced during and between games by captain/coaches. All other variations need to be built around this plan.
