I agree with the team, but being such a big match i don't know if we should thrust Taufeeq into this difficult situation. Though Salman does look tired as of late.

i think the only change today will be akmal for younis given the tragic news about younis father.
31st January 2005, 09:26
yk wud have been dropped anyway.
31st January 2005, 09:40
Salman looks tired needs a rest
31st January 2005, 09:42
Malik should come at one down - thats where he had the most success anyway!
31st January 2005, 09:55
I'd go along with AJ's side.
31st January 2005, 14:30
id go with AJ's side as well. i would have wanted Taufeeq to play but since Yasir played the last match we should now stick with him!
31st January 2005, 14:36
I'd play Hafeez instead of Butt
Butt is out of form and under pressure.
In big games we can't use part time keeper, can't afford dropped catches
Akmal should open and go for his shots cos he hits in the air but is not a six hitter so he needs the first 15 overs to make quick runs.
He won't be as effective later on

no need to drop yasir although i can't help but feel that people here are right...salman needs a break..but i just can't see him not play..i luv the guy :oD

Opening with Hameed is a waste of time in my opinion. He looks pretty shaky to me and I wouldn't expect much from him.
31st January 2005, 14:58
And actually I would consider HAfeez instead of Hameed anyway just strictly to sure up the fielding.

No point dropping those people who have the experience of playing cricket at WACA over those who have arrived now. We should play the same side except Kamran replacing YK.

What do you mean give Salman a rest? This isn't a friendly, Pak must win the match and to do that you need your best players. And Salman is the best opener for Pakistan. Although i'll admit that he does look tired. :o^

Wonder why Salman is tired. It's not like he has stayed at the crease for very long lately. Anyways he definitely needs to work on his fitness. An young guy like him needs to have a lot more energy.

Give Salman a rest in the most important game of the series!!! If Pakistan is going to go in with only 5 bowlers then Salman has to be picked because he is the only half decent 6th bowler option. The only change should be Karman for Younis and I would once again open with Kamran.
