    Title says it all, in your opinion whats the best way to toss the ball at him?

    Should Sarfraz open bowling with him like we did against England (because it might trouble Finch and Warner).

    OR

    Bring him in in the middle overs?

    Keep in mind pace wouldnt trouble Aussie openers much !

    This will be a fast pitch so dont expose too much spin at Aus early. Stick to your pacers and use Shadab after the 21st over.

    He should be used in middle. If we really want to use spin up-front I would go with Hafeez he can handle new ball better.

    I would use him to open the bowling, think he can take a wicket or two.

    Could have played for Malik, Malik till date hasn't won you anything against Australia even in UAE. Will he do something on a green pitch against 4 fast bowlers?? I seriously doubt it. Anyhow Shadab is already better then Malik ever was in England.

    Pakistanis have an obsession with imagining what-ifs. Our @Mohammed Bilal is convinced that Haris Rauf would've been fire today.

    He's your best spinner/one of our best bowlers. You don't drop one of your best bowlers, especially against SENA teams who struggle against spin at the best of times.

    how is he one of our best bowlers? he's rated the same as imad.

    you dont play a spinner on a green top on a minuscule ground. thats just as strong an argument as the "sena " side one. theres no absolutely compelling argument one way or the other.

    we lost the game because of malik and asif, not because we didn't play Shadab.
