    What a beauty. Rated highly for some time and is now showing the hype. Hope he gets picked in ANY format.

    The only left arm spinner who actually turns the ball instead of darting it.

    That is something! Imad can learn a lot from this boy.

    Good display of bowling but don't forget he got thrashed by the PZ tailenders like Umaid and Wahab.
    In this match 8 (out of 9) IU wickets were taken by spinners, Samit Patel took more wickets than him, Shadab was more economical than him. Even newbie Said Badar was extracting almost similar turn from this pitch in the previous match.

    Too early too say he's back to his best. Let's see how he performs on slightly different pitches, against better players and under pressure etc.

    Get him in the team. Better than Imad and Nawaz. Too bad those two are rated highly by the people higher up fsr.

    What most people don't know is that Zafar is a clean striker of the ball as well. Also electric in the field.

    Zafar at the post-match presser:

    "We were given a plan by Misbah Bhai and we hit the right areas which brought us success"

    "The last 6-7 months were very tough for my career (shoulder surgery etc) but I am feeling very good now"

    "There was pressure on me but I had trust on my skills and I backed them"

    "The ball with which I got Darren Sammy was a magic ball and I really enjoyed that"

    Exactly. He is a far better batsman than Imad and Nawaz.

    Definitely a must in the test team. In conditions when we need to play 5 bowler Faheem, Zafar, Yasir, Amir and Abbas. That should be the attack

    Waited a long time for him to show that, but knew he had it in him. Fine player, please keep him in the team for the remainder of the games. Genuine turner of the ball, this is the sort of player to invest in, not Imad and Nawaz. I can't vouch for Zafar's batting, we need to see more of it and hopefully he can earn a Shadab-esque promotion seeing as United's path to qualification looks clearer than the rest.

    I have doubts whether Faheem is good enough to play as an all-rounder in tests.

    I personally agree with you that Sarfraz bat at 6 with an allrounder at 7. Agha Salman, Talat, Shadab and Faheem are potential candiatates but none really stick out right now.


    What i suspect will happen is we will continue to play 6 batsmen + sarfraz at 7, and get Haris and maybe Fahkar if he gets called up, to bowl as the 5th bowler

    I don't think we can say that, he hasnt really shown it yet in his domestic career. In under 19s he was an allrounder.

    He clearly has ability though, we saw that in his one innings at International level, just needs to work on it a bit

    That's the sad story of Pakistan cricket. Zafar won't be the last case.

    As a 2nd spinner for tests I would invest in him.

    He's a spinner who can really spin it big. His only problem is too many loose deliveries. Unlike Yasir, who maintains consistent line and strangles the opposition for long spells, Zafar hasn't been able to do that. But he is a guy worth investing in.
