    Shehzad and Jamshed batting today

    Some very mediocre cricket.

    Could not get the ball off the square, gave chances, wasted balls and then got out when they should have gone on.

    Some very poor cricket against some steady but hardly world beating bowling.

    Shazad and Jamshed batting today

    Pak batting is a joke and so are the so called talented youngsters.

    Both have been a huge disappointment, how come these two are called aggressive openers? They are even worse than Misbah, considering they are batting in powerplay.


    Jamshed form is huge worry for Pakistan

    starting slow is not a problem but when you get out without accumulating on a slow start and ending up with a top SR thats when you do wrong.... misbah started off slow too and ended with a Sr 97.... this has been a problem for both of them and hopefully they can get their game straight in the next two ODI

    What is wrong with Jamshed? He was such a pleasure to watch when he first came in. Shehzad is obviously selfish and should be dropped from ODIs atleast, to make way for Umar Akmal in the next series.

    Shehzad clearly isn't good enough for ODIs. As for Jamshed he needs to go back to his attacking instincts and play freely, I don't know why he's been curbing his natural game for the past 6 months or so.

    Didn't Misbah ask them to block every ball and edge after they get to 24?

    If next game Jamshed doesn't make a score than he does need to go back to domestic just so he can get his rythem back. It's just awful to watch

    I don't get why Shehzad has so much support he has proven he isn't good enough and even his stats reflect this a S.R. of 60 is very poor. Jamshed needs to open up and back himself rather than play shots half-heartedly.

    Nasir has been a hell lot better performer than him, has proven himself. Shehzad has YET to do it!

    Jamshed will still be a pleasure to watch against trundlers on placid wickets.

    He was lucky to have been served pies at the start of his career which helped in boosting his average. He has been exposed ever since he has stepped outside Asia.

    Yes he did score some runs in the CT but he wasn't comfortable at all. Merely survived. Couldn't dominate.

    He still has all the ability which he displays in some of the shots that he plays. Just going through a bad patch of form which is unsurprisingly correlated with the size of his waist.

    this was a trundling attack on a easy pitch his form is just out going by his domestic records it seems this is his career story scores runs in spurts and then looses form for a while then starts scoring again his int career is mirroring that.Manzoor also seems to have a similar problem if you go by his domestic record.

    That correlates to his decreased confidence because of lack of runs.

    Jamshed of 2012 would have smashed this attack around on this pitch.

    The problem isn't mental, but he is weak mentally which is a part of the problem.

    He doesn't have the technique to play swing and seam. He is a flat track bully.

    Being a flat track bully isn't a bad thing at all because Pakistan plays most of their matches on flat tracks. Look what India have achieved thanks to their flat track bullies.

    Problem is that Jamshed has lost confidence. Flat track bully who loses his confidence starts struggling on flat tracks as well like Gambhir for instance.

    If we lose than those two would be the biggest culprits. People like to present Ahmed Shehzad as the next Tendulkar but the fact is AS is just a slogger who struggles in condtions even slighly in favor of the bowler.

    If this was a one off then it can be forgiven but this is consistently poor partnership. Shahzad has a strike rate of around 65 nearly every time I have seen play and Nasir is going backwards at a rate of knots. The only problem is that all the openers are just as bad!

    I did not watch the game but looks like these 2 players cost Pakistan this match with strike rate of around 50 while playing 100 balls together. So

    these 2 players :
    Played 100 balls
    Scores 50 runs

    all remaining players:
    Played 200 balls
    Scores 200 runs

    Ahmed Shehzad is TTF in ODIs. Time to drop him and try Azhar Ali / Sharjeel Khan instead.

    They should be attacking rather than going defensive.

    I have no idea what's going on with these two, they more defensive they play, the worst it gets for them as they just keep creating a bigger hole for themselves.

    That is true aswell, only Hafeez and Misbah scored the runs, the others were lacklustre.

    But since no Hafeez has made a big score, I don't see them playing Umar Amin or Haris Sohail up the order.

    Very slow batting. Both have been wrongly labelled as aggressors and what not. T20 is a different format and their innings in domestic T20 and T20i should not weigh on ODIs.
    We are deluded if we think we have 2 aggressors at the top. We have accumulators.

    Sarfraz and Afridi were much bigger culprits, Jamshed/Ahmed did their job and fought bravely against the new ball. Its just this forum is filled with mqm style Karachiwalas which is why Jamshed/Ahmed get all the blame despite doing well and losers like Afridi and Sarfraz get away/

    Really pathetic batting. The only 'selling point' Shahzad/Jamshaid got is their aggression - which they haven't shown for a long time. Might as well draft in Azhar Ali if you need tuk-tuk at the top, at least he won't throw away his wicket cheaply.

    You know whats worse? Precisely this kind of batting performances vindicate selectors who bring in Imran Farhat time and again. At least I can't blame them after seeing this pair's recent showing.

    What the actual hell? first of all, painting us all with the same brush as those terrorists shows your stupidity. Secondly, while I am not a fan of Sarfaraz, he was wrongly given out. Thirdly, I am from Karachi and I have been against the cancer that is Afridi for years.

    So get your facts straight before shooting your ass off. They were slow today and that's a fact. It was a collective team failure with both batsmen and bowlers to take blame.

    These openers should be shown the door if they failed again. It is a job of selectors to decide which openers should replace them. The names that come to mind are Babar Azam, Khurram Manzoor, Sami Aslam, Shahzeib Hassan, Sharjeel Khan, Azhar Ali, and Zain Abass.

    I think its about time Misbah should drop himself down the order specially in the games where Pakistan hasnt lost more than two wickets in 15 overs. He should only be in early when their is a risk of collapse. This way you can build the players for future

    Spot on mate!! The main problem in our batting today was the slow start by our openers!! They were playing as if they knew in the last 10 overs 100 will be gettable so build a platform lol!! In fact it seemed as if they were playing for their own spots in the team lol!! This slow start was unacceptable!! Minimum 60 runs should be scored in the first 10 overs!! Why dont they buy some sense now from Zimbabwe? Zimbabwe started aggressively and that was the main reason they finished it off easily!! Had our openers started aggressively our score would have been in 270s!!

    Pakistani batsman and Indian bowlers have one thing in common.at the start of their respective careers both will be impressive but will fade away quickly. Jamshed is a classic example.

    Azhar Ali should be opening for Pakistan in both Tests and ODIs.

    Jamshed will eventually come good after another break from National side.

    Misbah should give the openers a danda. Thats what they deserve for playing in such defensive style. Gave the Zimbo bowlers to much respect and put us on the back foot. Neither the bowling was so great nor the pitch that difficult.

    Azhar ali is a more defensive player than Jamshed.

    Afridi has played a key role in atleast 4 wins since his comeback. Why does everyone take their frustrations out on him?

    I am not comparing these two. I consider Azhar a better option than Shehzad for ODIs.

    In mordern day . If u want win odi, t20, or test u need attaking batsman not tuk, tuk. And must needed 1 aggresive opener. Every cricket playing nation has a dassing opener like- sikhar d fm india, bell fm eng, watson & warner fm aus, guptil fm nz, smith & amla fm sa, dilshan fm sl, gayle fm wi, even tamim fm bd. Bt unfortunately no one fm pak. If ur opener scored 20+ from 50+ runs every game then how can u won the match. Thanks

    Pakistan should try both Azhar Ali and Sharjeel Khan in ODIs. Replace both current openers with Azhar and Sharjeel.

    selfish batting. hence need guys like Umar Akmal and Fawad Alam in our team.

    Might as well put Afridi back as an opener against the likes of Zimb, atleas the will be positive!

    Re: Shehzad and Jamshed batting today

    can't fault these guys. we seen them play before. we know they can bat aggressively. but constant criticism in media and sacking by their own captain makes them go into a shell. Same with Yasir Hameed and other talents.

    This team is going nowhere unless Misbah leaves. He wants everyone to follow his approach of caution early on and accelerating in the end. this is good for middle order but for top order its gonna kill the rhythm and flow of runs .

    This teams need total takeover by young players and these usless oldies like hafeez ,misbah have to go . Playing the young and inexperienced might be a bit disappointing to start with but atleast we can see them getting better by experience .

    Misbah is actually the worst captain for pak since i started watching cricket .the reason iss simple , previous captains never completely ignored country interest and played a team full of favorites and oldies .
    Now he has only been forced to play shahzad and nasir and amin otherwise he would still opt imran farhats , shoaibs maliks and aizaz cheemas. Dont think he has any idea what is country interest and building up teams.

    exactly..they are taking needless risk thanks to captain,selectors and media but it's captain and selectors that have to back players with few failures..if they give them a license of few games assurety that they won't be dropped for this numbers of games or something like that just to give them confidence I'm sure they'll play their natural game instead of this selfish cricket.

    I don't think think they are a good pair, why not trying to open with Haris Sohail!
    Someone who bats at the top order shouldn't be called on No. 7!

    Maybe Jamshed's excellent series against India is the equivalent of Afridi's 37 ball 100 all those years back. Maybe we are expecting Jamshed to play like he did against India every time he comes to the crease just like we expect (not anymore though) Afridi to blast every bowler out the ground.

    So the question is, how many more games/series should he get to prove me and others wrong or should we replace him?

    PS. I know Shezad was playing also, he looks more average than Jamshed so don't want to waste any time with him....replace him already)

    wasn't the most eye catching innings, but that's not what cost us the match; that was our pathetic bowling and fielding display, if we could bowl better we would've won that easily

    Shehzad flopped today, Jamshed showed glimpses of his Asian form, really good batsmen to watch when in full flow, if Shehzad fails for the rest of this series, I would drop him. If Umar Akmal is fit to keep, he'll play in the middle order while someone like Azhar Ali can open. If Umar Akmal isn't fit to keep, then Kamran Akmal should open. If Shehzad does good in the 3rd ODI, and Umar Akmal isn't fit to keep, then bring in Rizwan
