Again and again we collapse because our youngsters just aren’t brought up with the correct technique and temperament and can’t stick around long enough to make ugly runs. And our seniors lack bottle but we can not discard the whole team otherwise we would be like Bangladesh of 10-20 years ago.

    All these fakhar Zaman’s harris sohails sharjeel Khan’s as pure batsmen are very weak in bouncy conditions So might as well have somebody who can contribute a little with the ball when cleared.

    But I would maintain there’s only room for one of Shohaib or hafeez and I would pick hafeez.
    Maths holds up well.
    We have lost badly a few times with world class players in tough conditions = we have lost badly every time with mediocre players in tough condtions

    Maths is fine as is history and memory. India odi series was tough conditions and hafeez did ok. Was worlds top ranked all rounder for a while. So your little play on words doesn’t work at all.

    Look I’m not trying to suggest that he’s the messiah. Just want you and others to accept that change of odd personnel here and there is not gonna fix anything. The whole batting line up is rubbish and hafeez is definitely not the worst in the eleven.

    Nor do I think

    Enough of his mediocre player, there's Agha Salman and Iftikhar Ahmed, both are off spinners.
    Hafeez will bowl soon.

    I honestly don’t know these others as I can’t follow domestic tournaments live in Uk but if PP hype machine is anything to go by then must exercise extreme caution.

    It will fix everything. All rounder ratings are a joke in the modern era. But sure you hang your hat on cherry picking in a career defined mediocrity

    He offers nothing with the bat, ball or in the field.

    He's on par with Azhar for being the worst, at least Malik right now can bowl and field at a decent level despite struggling with the bat.

    5 years ago I made this thread. Hafeez lives on. What nostalgia


    Full credit to Micky Arthur for realizing Babar Azam was born to bat at 3 in all formats.

    This guy is the epitome of mediocrity. As an all rounder, he merits a place in the team but solely as a batsmen he's rubbish and its beyond me why he keeps getting selected.

    Feel like we are playing with 10 people when I see him in the lineup.

    Maybe you forget his misfeild in World T20 2007 final, dropped the catch and ball went over the rope for a six due to his misfeild. Interesting incident and we blame Misbah for last shot

    To get a sense of the mediocrity, he has to chuck the ball to be a remotely effective all rounder

    "This business that it's 'up to Misbah' whether he wants to play or not – that's rubbish - it's up to the selectors," Chappell said.

    Because once in a while hafeez does ok. Not a century but good enough. He’s never gonna turn a match around but right now not the worst person in the team. He will be bowling soon or another off spinner will turn up.

    He will bowl soon but he will also be banned again. He scores just about enough runs to avoid getting dropped, but he fails in about 70% of his innings. That is not good enough for a senior batsman with so much experience.

    It is time for Mickey to make a tough call here. The team is going nowhere with his soft runs.

    Agree with this except that he should not be the first to be dropped. I know the batting is hopeless (I.e) without hope, but the bowling should be the easier of the bowling so to fix. A couple of personnel changes and it will be a good all weather bowling unit with good bench strength.
