    As the title says, whats your all-time Pakistan XI? Playing XI would merely be of Pakistani players (current/retired).

    Here is how my line-up would look like;

    1. Saeed Anwar
    2. Hanif Mohammad
    3. Javed Maindad
    4. Mohammad Yousuf
    5. Inzamam Ul Haq
    6. Imran Khan
    7. Moin Khan
    8. Wasim Akram
    9. Saqlain Mushtaq
    10. Shoaib Akhtar
    11. Waqar Younis

    12th Man: Fawad Alam

    What would your line-up be?

    Is this an ODI or a Test line up? I don't think I would include Shahid Afridi. Ever.

    I didn't realize the format and made a side, however, all has been fixed now :).

    I don't really think there's much to argue with that lineup, except Fawad Alam 12th man?

    That's a cruel joke :p

    Saeed Bhai (@Younis-fan) is my version of Younis Khan, I didn't add Younis Khan and had Mohammad Yousuf instead of him so he evens things out by having Younis Khan instead of Mohammad Yousuf ;)

    10.Abdul Qadir
    11.Waqar Younus

    12th man Sarafraz Nawaz

    This team could rank with the great all -time world 11's with a bowling attack amongst the best world combinations of all time.Unlucky omissions are Mohammad Younus,Saweed Anwar,Saqlain Mushtaq,Fazal Mahmood and Younus Khan.On his day Majid Khan was genius in the Barry and Viv Richards class.Asif Iqbal has been added as he was not only the best no 6 batsmen in the world of his era but was an effective bowler.Shoaib Akhtar was a match-winner on his day but basically posessed brute pace.

    I'm probably gonna get criticism here but I think Hanif Mohammad as an opener is a bit overrated. No question about his adhesiveness and his importance for Pakistan in the early days as the single batsman of any consistency. However as an OPENER I would much rather have Saeed Anwar or Majid Khan. Hanif's confidence, and knuckles, took a battering on the 1962 tour of England and by the end of that tour he had shifted down the lineup and batted nearly exclusively at No 5 or 6 after that, in fact he only played as opener two or three more times. In terms of performance he was excellent both opening and otherwise (average in early 40s both ways) but considering his confidence to open was shattered in 1962 I'd have him as contender for a middle-order slot and not as opener, where I'd prefer Saeed Anwar & Majid Khan
