    At the moment, Rahane is more versatile than Shafiq. Although Asad hasn't toured overseas much and so it doesn't go against him. But since Rahane right now is a proven commodity, people place him higher. Shafiq has this tour and the Australian tour to prove his credentials as well.

    Very similar record, same age, similar average although Asad has played more and has two more centuries than Rahane also has more fifities but You cannot choose between them. I would not say one is better than the other. Batting at 6 Asad may have a better record.


    Rudi is a useless umpire get rid off him plzzzzz.

    I said Rahane is ahead mainly for his versatility, he plays better in tough conditions and adapts well to different conditions. He has played some brilliant knocks in his short career overseas. Has a ton in every country he has played overseas except SA where he made a 96. He averages 48.5 away from asia while Shafiq averages 30.5.

    Rahane's position is generally no.5, and has played very few matches at no.6. Although he averages a healthy 65 at no.6 as well.

    But yeah, I agree both are similar kind of players and I rate Shafiq highly in the Pakistan team.

    Sami Aslam based on one innings? Dhawan has been good in NZ too.

    And anyways it should be Rahul/Vijay who should be opening not Dhawan.

    Dhawan's lucky knock in NZ was based off two dropped catches and it was just the law of averages catching up. Look at his record everywhere including India - it's deadset below par and a so called batting powerhouse like us should have nothing to do with such a hack.

    Sami Aslam is just 20 years of age, got thrown off the deep end and delivered in both innings in a test match in a country where he's never gone before. In fact, it was just his 3rd test match ever. He has the potential to be light years ahead of Dhawan after a couple of series already.

    Yeah but like I said Dhawan should not even be in the team. It should be Rahul/Vijay, both of whom are superior to Sami so far (who btw is NOT 20).

    Yes he missed out on boosting his tally. May be he needs some more work against spin bowlers at home. He is more comfortable against pacers abroad than spinners at home.

    Technically Asad looks better overall batsman. Rahane obviously has caught spin virus. But if he counters this he would be back to being much better batsman than Asad.

    Asad and Azhar vs Kohli turned it around for Kohli, now lets hope this thread does the same

    On a serious note, Rahane potentially is a much better batsman but Shafiq has made the most of his skill so far and is more consistent out of the two.

    People questioning Rahane's spin game, don't forget he did score twin centuries on a turner where batsmen struggled big time from both sides.

    Problem with him is he is just too inconsistent. It's probably more mental than technical.

    Rahane is an amazing player on pace friendly tracks and flat tracks.

    But his game against spin is dodgy as hell.

    Valid comparison but Rahane will win for the sole reason Asad is way too inconsistent.

    Asad is the more complete bat for now.

    Rahane is a disgrace against spin. If he fails next match he will go into wilderness like pujara did for 1 yr.

    He never looked comfortable from his debut against spin.

    They're both in the same league, along with Pujara. I'd put Azhar, Faf, Khawaja and Bairstow in there as well. A step above these guys are the "Fab Four".

    Personally, I'd take Rahane outside of Asia and Shafiq in it.

    The problem with the test was no pressure in the game,his pressure game and technical ones both are sadly "in progress".

    We really needed him to perform this match.Him Pujara Vijay will always remain level-2 batsmen if this is how it will be (Dravid was not level-2),Kohli has managed to outperform them based on impact.

    Multiple times we have discussed these issues but its just exploding on ur faces right now.

    Regardless of how Shafiq plays, he isn't clueless anywhere. He is just inconsistent.

    Rahane is clueless against spin for most part.

    Shafiq won't last on rank-turners either. He is an overrated player of spin, doesn't look sound in defense. Plays the cut better than most though, but it is not the best option on a rank-turner.

    Younis and Sarfraz are the only two high quality players of spin in our team, but the latter is prone to throwing it away and overdoing it.

    They're both in the same league, along with Pujara. I'd put Azhar, Faf, Khawaja and Bairstow in there as well. A step above these guys are the "Fab Four".

    Personally, I'd take Rahane outside of Asia and Shafiq in it.
    Williamson is no fab 4, are u Sleeping last year, Azhar ali and rahane are fab 4

    Rahane played a crucial knock in Bangalore supporting Pujara, but about time he buckles down and really goes big.

    Rahane

    He can at least play a big inning. Asad is good for 50s and once a series 100.

    both are similar, good players but both are inconsistent.

    However, I would rate Rahane slightly more because of Shafiq's habit of getting out on ducks.

    Shafiq got 5 ducks last year, that's record most for a Pakistani test batsman.

    Asad is a mediocre test player and a garbage ODI player while while Rahane is a decenr batsman in both forms. No way we should compare Asad with Rahane. Asad could be be compared to Tom Latham only.
