y has shoaib malik been pushed down so much???
i mean he has so much talent and he is acutally performing, and instead of sending him in at threee...
they push him down so low
your thoughts please

Well I think that he should have been at 3, but agree with the decision to send Afridi and Razzak ahead of him today

Ehhh coz hes a stroke player, wiht good technique, you needed someone like Afridi and Razzaq to come in and do some fly swottin! Its comman sense bro.
yeah there's still a question mark over numbers 2 and 3 in our team. I think BW is trying to sort that out. other than that the lineup is looking great. Im putting my faith in BW. lets see what he can come up with.

yes agreed that once were already in the last ten overs...it would've been stupid ot send malik..but he should've come in a long long while ago..
with malik at three our runrate would be hgiher, allowing us to end up with around 320-330

if pakistan loose this one it will be bcuz akmal opened instead of yasir and malik didnt bat third.!!!!
its just amazing how the pak team make simple decisions difficult!!
anyone with half brain would know if ur playing yasir and salman they should open, and then malik should come next.
the first 20 overs were very slow partly bcuz malik was not in there- malik was waisted today down the order.

Shoaib Malik to me is better at 6 with YK at 3.
I would rather have Younis walking in at 3 to face the Aussies than Malik and I think as I have said before Malik is the ideal man to be Pakistan's Michael Bevan.
