    On paper, it's a pretty good squad. Looks already better than the WC final squad in my opinion.

    Yes most likely.

    Three pacers are must in England.
    Bowling looks good and batting as usual is ordinary. Hope it clicks somehow.

    I think Imran Farhat will play as opener with hafeez coming one down and will be replaced with Amin.

    Lol Farhat...

    Middle order of
    Shafiq
    Misbah
    Malik
    And some new guy?

    lololololololol.

    7 bowlers + Hafeez, Malik....Oh dear.

    9 bowlers?! Why the hell do we need NINE bowlers for.

    Misbah, Shafiq, Jamshed, Umar Amin, Farhat.

    4 and a half batsmen selected....

    Lol, this is hilarious.

    farhats inclusion is a but it was a must.

    Sohail tanvir and afridi not getting selected is great news. hope no wild cards.

    umer amin over harris is not right but atleast we have a good player and not younis khan so satisfied.

    riaz is also fine might end this issue of not giving enough chances by letting him play.

    rehman, why need a spinner in england. hope misbah doesn't play him.

    the rest are fine.


    Over all not a bad squad.

    If a batsman gets injured then we will have just one reserve (either Farhat or Jamshed) EPIC

    Couple of passengers in the team as usual....

    You have a replacement for opener,fast bowler,spinner but do not have a replacement for middle order batsman.....Which means Asad,Malik and Umar Amin are going to play each and every match....

    Have not seen a more mediocre middle order playing for Pakistan in such a big tournament....Lets hope they do well and live upto selectors/managemt's expectations....

    So much for this classy left hander....Even Younis was better option than him ,let alone junior Akmal...

    Yes batting looks a bit thin, they can allways call up a batsman if there is injury but it wont be easy to adjust when you have not been with the team all the time.

    if a player gets injured you can send a replacement

    the problem is what if a player is completely out of form

    How does Imran farhat cuts into every team is beyound my imagination.

    I rather pick Omer Akmal and keep on the bench than take this guy who cant even hold on to dollies.

    Way too many tuk tuks in the squad. I say we will be knocked out even before semis.

    I think Misbah has punished Haris for hiding the injury before the South Africa tour by dropping him from the CT squad.

    Ok squad Some good and some bad decisions as usual The squad is a batsman or two short, no idea why we need so many bowlers. Umar Akmal shouldve been there - disappointed hes been dropped

    Good to see Ehasan adil and Asad ali included but didnt need wahab too The dropping of afridi is good news but disappointed malik and farhat are still there (Shouldve included harris and hammad instead)

    Umar Amin instead of Umar Akmal? Poor decision.

    Ahmed Shehzad should have replaced Farhat.

    Also, I am not too convinced with Ehsan Adil's bowling, hopefully he proves me wrong.

    This happens when team is made after compromises......Selectors want their own couple of favourites and management wants their own couple of preferences.....hence the balance of squad is disturbed because of few gives and takes.....

    I am not fan of this system....there should be one decision making authority,too many cooks spoil the food.....

    Only if Umar Akmal and Haris Sohail were selected instead of Farhat and abdur Rehman.

    I doubt AR will get a game so why not include an extra batsman? You already have 3 spinners and we are not playing in SC.

    I don't think PCB has realized that we are going in UK in early summer. Two of Pakistan best seaming bowling playing bowlers are not selected (Azhar and YK). That's a big mistake in my mind because ODIs are played with two new balls, you need a technically sound batsmen and people with experience to manage the innings in first 20 overs. Lets see how this pans out...

    Bowling selection appears to be good for what we got.

    I'm afraid there are more negatives to talk about than positives in this selected pakistan squad

    On the whole im more disappointed tbh, this was a great opportunity for the selectors to make a statement and flush out the rubbish but instead we get more bad decisons than good

    dude he was on that paper before it got printed out. listen the :Iqasim doesnt care all he saw was he played two matches in africa and has an average of 53 in that series with 106 runs and made 93 in one of them regardless of the fact he barely scratched to 13 in the next match and that 93 was a very scratchy knock.

    expect him in every squad till the next year.

    After the fiasco of the south african ODI squad i am surprised we actually got that one good decision. Rehman inclusion boggles me. rather then a spinner why not have another specialist batsmen or an allrounder like hammas azam.

    hammad azam not playing is also surprising as he could have been a great number 7.

    I'd say a poor squad selected but at least one good thing that they dropped Afridi, Younis and Tanvir, so on that front at least something is good.

    Very disappointed not to see Haris Sohail in the line up, far too many bowlers selected, way too many esp when three of them (Junaid, Irfan and Ajmal) are regulars in the eleven, so why do they need so many options for just one more bowling space in the line up?

    Amin's selection has surprised me, Farhat is again a poor selection but he did well so this was expected.

    I'd go with the below line up for the game against the WI

    Jamshed
    Hafeez
    Kamran
    Asad Shafiq
    Misbah
    Umar Amin
    Shoaib Malik
    Ehsan Adil
    Junaid Khan
    Saeed Ajmal
    Mohammed Irfan

    don't see why they needed a 2nd genuine spinner in the squad in Abdur Rehman, already have Ajmal Hafeez and Malik there.

    Wahab is also extremely lucky to still be there.

    other than that a very good squad, no complaints.

    Boys, boys, you actually think these things are decided with a view to mounting a credible attempt to win the tournament - please give me a break!!!! - donkey decision making of this magnitude is not by accident, it's driven by all sorts of personal agendas and I'm afraid they have nothing in common with Pak cricket success!!!

    Just hope we survive the group stages, eh boys????

    My starting eleven:

    1. Hafeez
    2. Farhat/Jamshed
    3. Akmal
    4. Asad
    5. Misbah
    6. Umar Amin
    7. Malik
    8. Ajmal
    9. Asad Ali
    10. M. Irfan
    11. Junaid

    Umar Amin is actually a pretty usefuly seamer and can chip in when the conditions are conductive to swing bowling.

    Only concern is the long tail with Ajmal at #8. None of the bowlers can bat.

    Very poor squad.

    If you want to be harsh, you would say that Jamshed is the only batsman capable of a big score.

    Shockingly poor squad. Has sapped any enthusiasm I had for the tournament.

    I always find it unconvincing when people say that "other than this i am satisfied with the squad.."

    It is always a matter of 2 or 3 slots in the squad....If they can not fill these 2 or 3 slots with merit and serenity,then all of their work is multiplied by zero........

    Becasue they try to please the people around them so the merit is always ignored....

    No offense to anybody but PCB selectors are very good Comedians.
