    Yes, he's bang average. The only that thing that the 2014 Shehzad has over the 2010-11 one is better temperament.

    Talking about Test cricket here. Hafeez has hundreds in NZ and WI as well. He doesn't have technique to survive in Tests in difficult conditions.

    NZ wickets are some of the flattest in the world and that hundred didn't exactly come against Steyn + Morkel.

    Morkel didn't play that match and he only scored 4 runs off 7 balls against Steyn.

    Junaid is a better bowler than Shehzad is as a batsman, but none of them are special. Shehzad vs Rahane is ridiculous comparison.

    Pathetic player, There is just no hope with him as a Test player ..

    I dont see him scoring runs even in Subcontinent and he is not good enough to Polish Rahane's shoes as a batsman, This subject of comparing thee two should never ever be discussed again..

    This is just an embarrasing comparison, Shahzad is a clueless opener

    I expect him to be history as a test player in matter of months

    He's garbage. Yes that was poor from Azhar, but did you see his technique? Can't play spin at all and I'd rather have Hafeez open in the subcontinent than him because at least he's not a duck against spin and can score in these conditions.

    True that even gives a decent 5th spin bowling option in Asia, We should bring Hafeez back against Australia

    Jamshed is mentally shot, he could bat at the SSC and still walk out with a king pair.

    Yes, he has big problems against spin which is why any half decent spinner will expose him.

    Will be clueless against Lyon. Hafeez is a much better player of spin.

    Very firm grip, hard hands, forced trigger movement, not a good front foot stride. Bowl him a good channel on the off-stump with the ball slightly shaping away and he's gone.

    Do those even matter? I thought it was all about "he has talent" as PP suggests.

    That's part of the talent 'package'. He likes to stay at the crease and has a knack of scoring big which is his one redeeming quality.

    We should not even mention Shehzad and Kohli in the same line. Only on PP will you see people comparing Kohli to Shehzad .


    Sehwag and Steyn are the Best.

    Only if he has a good front foot game or a great hand eye coordination. Still better than any existing opener in pakistan at the moment.

    We should also keep in mind that Shahzad failed in Galle and Rahane scored a ton at Lord's on a green pitch.

    Both seem to have technical issues, Rahane far less than Pujara and Kohli thankfully.

    All three are better than Shahzad. Only a matter of time till they find their feet in test cricket.

    Good knock by Rahane today. Came in at a difficult time. Made a good 40 at a healthy S/R.

    Both can't be compared now due to batting at different positions. However I've always rated even before he made his mark in international cricket.

    I think criticism of Shehzad is a bit unwarranted when he has actually scored runs in the format. Tests are a different story though. More than technique, he seems to be in a shell until he has played around 60 balls at least after which he can score runs pretty quickly. If the likes of Sami Aslam,Haris Sohail etc. are indeed world class talents then I agree Shehzad should be dropped from the ODI squad. No point dropping a guy who actually can consistently score significant runs considering the apparent lack of batting talent in Pakistan.

    Rehane is a better Test player, Shezhad is a better ODI player.

    Cant understand why Rahane has not performed upto mark in ODIs. He has a good technique and all the gears. A complete package.

    Rahane made a good 40 today at a high S/R but his own carelessness cost him his wicket.
