    When will have these attacking players in the team?? Do we have anyone in the board who's serious about our cricket? In the past atleast we had captains who took the initiative to hunt for talent and build strong team now our captains have become yes men for the cricket board with zero interest in grooming talent.

    Well it looks like Saad Ali is on the selectors radar - called up to the LOI training camp for the WI tour.

    With Haris, Umar and Rizwan struggling, Umar Amin still recovering from an injury, Shafiq showing he can't play ODIs for his life, Sharjeel banned, and Sami Aslam showing that he's made for Tests, I really won't mind if Saad Ali gets an opportunity in the ODI squad.

    Hope he gets a call.

    Whoever called him attacking needs an EEG atleast :-)


    Yes slight resemblance with Alaister Cook but he is not fit for limited overs cricket. Might make Test team in future provided he has 2 high scoring FC seasons.

    Had to look him up to see how he is doing now and his first class career has stalled. Any ideas why? 40 games in 4-5 years doesn't seem right and his batting average is 41 which is middling really.

    The list A numbers look good though but how is he striking the ball? Is he hitting long boundaries? Sixes? Or accumulating the runs ? He scored a 66 recently, how many balls was that off?

    Just as he had started to look very good after all the hard work he gives it away :-(


    I think he should remain in Pak A list A and Four day squad but his strongest format will be four day. He will be competing with Haris, Amin, Saud, Usman etc so it will be tough. He is quite consistent which is his strong point.

    Brother Fawad Alam would be a better option for test matches which is a format made for him.

    Usman, Haris and Amin also look better players than Saad who has looked extremely limited.

    I think fawad deserves it the most and he will average 50 to 55 in Tests in UAE, BD, SL & Zim but he is definitely most limited.


    Because Saad hasn't scored much in this tourney hence he was playing within himself as it was final and he wanted to make a statement. He has started to hit couple of good boundaries and he got out. Still I think he won't make it as a successful Odi player but definitely he will be in picture for Test Cricket provided he has a good FC season.

    I agree with asfandyar and another guy that Saad has some resemblance with Alaister Cook.


    I hoped that He and Agha score a fifty in final but they got out at wrong time.


    Usman & Amin have consistency issues but both are good. For me if Haris clears fitness test He should replace Younis or Misbah in the Test playing eleven.

    Was the perfect time to deliver. Pitches tailor-made for big scores, yet Saad gave it all away. Sigh. Unfortunately has moved below Umar Amin in the reckoning.

    Scored 67 vs FATA in round 3 of QeA.

    Impressive start to the season so far. He is currently the third highest scorer in the tournament. What makes this particularly notable is that he has only batted in three innings. Everyone else in the top 10 run scorers has had 5/6 innings.

    Scored a 99-ball 93 in round 4 vs Rawalpindi.

    Shame he missed out on the century, but he is certainly making the most of every opportunity in this year's QeA.

    4 innings so far, and he has scored 2 50s and 1 century.

    Moves to within 10 runs of becoming leader run scorer in QeA this year, having scored an unbeaten 37* in the 2nd innings v Pindi.

    The only person ahead of him is Amin who has played 2 more innings.

    Still warrants selection in both ODIs and tests. Asad is an anomaly, let us not get carried away with conjectures.

    I didn't watch most of the PC due to time commitments but I heard he struggled. But how do you know it wasn't just a bad run of form? Even if it wasn't can we really rule him out of the longer format based on a poor one day tournament?

    He has been a consistent performer, especially in the longer format, and he has definitely worked on his S/R (compare his S/R in last year's QeA with this year's and there is a massive improvement). We all know how difficult the pitches are, and yet he is the second highest run scorer having scored in pretty much every game he has played. He has also played fewer innings than everyone else in the top 10 run scorers, which tells you that once he is set he scores big.

    I'm not saying he is the next Bradman but I don't think we should write him off so quickly, especially for the longer format.

    Wow! 140 off just 127 balls from Saad Ali against Pakistan TV! He's still not out so he could be looking for a quick 200-300 and he could very well find himself in the next Pakistan test squad. That's a good SR for List A standards let alone FC

    He has been very good this season specially given the nature of wickets that are being produced in the ongoing tournament. I hope he finds himself as part of Pak team in the near future.

    Fun trivia: In this match, Saad Ali batted at #5 and made 232, Sohaib Maqsood batted at #6 and made 145.

    Umar Akmal batted at #4 and made 6

    Only 2 performing with bat to be honest - both are lefti, rest are just a flash in the pan, either too new or too old - over all stats are not that good. Can't say about pacers - everyone looks unplayable, but Raja Hasan has been out standing - stats doesn't tell anything, because most of his matches produced 1000+ runs or 300+ 1st innings; but he is bowling long, long spells, and getting wickets at tight economy.

    He was playing on pretty true pitches. He just looked very limited and lacked timing even after spending time out there. I can look past the lack of runs if there's ability but he didn't show anything to impress.

    Lets see, but he seems to be on fire this season and with an incredible strike rate.
