    Harris has been playing very well and if given chance to continue to play at no.4 that mean Hafeez might have to move.

    Malik has been dud with bat lately, particularly in English conditions. On contrary, when Hafeez is set looks a treat to watch and can hit play big shots with almost no effort.

    That said, if you're to pick either of these two for crucial position no.6, which one will you opt and why?

    Ill have Harris batting at 4, Hafeez 5 and Malik 6 Sarfraz 7. No Imad.

    Harris, Hafeez and Malik can share 13 overs between them. 4 pacers, Amir, Shaheen, Hassan and Fahim can bowl 37 overs between themselves!!

    At this rate Hafeez will replace Fakhar as the second opener and Haris will be slotted in at 4, Malik at 6.

    Again with this. Mohammad Hafeez will not bat at 6. No matter how many people want him there in their fantasy cricket XIs.

    Hafeez is a proper batsman.. more of a batting allrounder.

    Malik was never a batsman to start with. But it is ti his credit that he has made it this big when he started as number 9/10 with off spin his primary job

    Yeah remember in 2001 series v eng he was a tailender and pure off spinner. It was later on he developed his batting. Funnily enough, Hafeez provides more assurance.

    Hafeez has a very sound technique but like most Pakistani players, he is selfish and mentally very weak. Otherwise Hafeez ceiling point is very high and has underachieved whereas Malik has overachieved.

    Hafeez any day.

    Proper batsman who is much better down the order against the older ball than as an opener. Plus he can change gears. Plus he's a better bowler.

    Haris must not be dropped and Malik is the one who must make way.

    It won't happen though, Haris will be screwed over by our 'bright' management.

    Haris is a good batsman, he's someone who you know will not fail in intl cricket. They leave him out for the sake if it. If haris' fitness was of Malik, Hafeez or Shehzad level he would be one of the top batsman in world cricket.

    Imad is the one who should make way! Harris can do his job with the ball and is the best batsman in the entire squad. Harris, Hafeez and Malik can be the part of the middle order! Sarfraz at 7~ 4 pacers including allrounder Fahim Ashraf!

    Imad is the only one who can hit big. Plus he's been in good batting form recently, no chance.

    Faheem is a PSL bully...Aamir would be a better option, better bowler and batting is the same if not better.

    I am for change, so if Malik isn't firing at 4-5, than put him at 6 with a license to go from the get go. Who knows, he might just be able to reinvent himself like Hafeez did..

    Amir is the first name on the team sheet for me!! Amir to sab se phele khelta hai 15 players nikal kar mein Amir ko khilaonga!! Imad ki bowling jitni hai utni to Harris Sohail bhi kar sakta hai Harris Sohail is good enough for bowling 7 overs in an odi. Please select team on the requirement of the team and according to conditions! Dont select a player just cus he is good! Horses for courses is the right approach! You need your 4 pacers in these conditions and Harris Sohail, Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Fakhar Zaman can render enough spin options!!

    Play Abid Ali in the side. Drop both Hafeez and Malik

    Hafeez is not fit and has not played a single game

    Malik is garbage

    If he performs they have no justification for dropping him in a few weeks time and sneaking Amir into the squad

    Why drop Hafeez and Malik. Get rid of pinchhitter Asif Ali and get a proper batsman Abid Ali in the top order at No. 3 to see of that new ball./ You can put Babar Azam at No. 5 by putting Abid at 3!!

    If it wasnt for Asif, we wouldnt get so close to the target. Of course Fakhar was amazing and Bobby did ok. Harris and Imam disappointed though.

    Harris should make way for Hafeez (if fully fit) not Asif.

    Why's Asif even in the team for?

    He's no Buttler, He lost us a won match, that pitch wa a belter and the way batsman put pressure add to England's inept bowling. 63 off 40 is nothing.

    This post was made prior to last odi. Asif played well and has created a dilemma. The way I see it Amir is not going to be available for World Cup so 11 or 15 I see:

    1. Fakhar
    2. Sarfraz
    3. Babar
    4. Hafeez
    5. Asif Ali
    6. Shoaib Malik
    7. Imad Wasim
    8. Shadab Khan
    9. Shaheen
    10. Hasnain
    11. Junaid
    Reserves: Hassan Ali, Fahim Ashraf (unfortunately), Harris Sohail, Imam.

    He played well and 63 off 40 is a good score in any conditions. We lost the match cus of Fahim Ashraf and Sarfraz's lack of hitting ability at the end. Sarfraz se open karwao he is not suitable for any other number it seems!!

    Not a typo! I meant it! That extra pace of Hasnain is what we need right now! Hassan is getting belted all around the park right now! He needs a kick at his backside! I have kept him in 15 though~

    Yaar we like Sohaily.

    Asif Ali lalu can't play neither can he bat nor can he bowl. Hawk players offer two dimensions or even three Maxwell, Stoinis, Buttler, Ali, Pooran, Jadhav, Dhoni, Russell, Phelukwayo, Duminy, Grandhomme, Hafeez, Stokes, Morgan, Perera, Perera Kusal, Alex Carey, Shakib, Mahmadullah, Neesham and Nabi.

    Willey Bhai dropped his catch. Southampton pitch is amazing to bat on.

    Hafeez should bat at 4 or 6.

    So long as he isn't facing the new ball within 10 overs against outswing he is okay at any other point of the innings. Hafeez is free flowing and has the full range of shots
