    Sohaib Maqsood - Where is he heading?

    Initially he looked a fine player with some even comparing him to a young Inzamam-ul-Haq. Strong driver of the ball, cut the ball well and looked like someone who can score freely off both front and the back foot.

    However after the initial impressions he has flattered to deceive. Several times when looking well set he has thrown his wicket away with a loose shot.

    Where are we with Sohaib? Is he going to be another who falls short of expectations or will he justify hopes?

    Simply not good enough IMO.

    Players such as Akmal Jr had backing as he had ability but poor temperament let him down however this so called fake Inzi is a flat footed hack as far as I am concerned.

    He can be a beast on flat wickets.But in conditions helpful for bowlers,he is going to fail.I think he's going to be a regular in T20i's but not in ODI's.Tests are outta the question.

    was always skeptical about him. relied on too many airy shots, even when he was scoring runs, had terrible foot work, Looked to loft the ball way more than Umar Akmal ever did.

    I was never overly impressed with him and do not have much hope but I know he is here to stay. unfortunately.

    Agreed. Should kept him there for a few series. Moved him down the order and tried to make him a hitter.

    Also, I still remember 2009, when Umar Akmal made his test debut... WOW!

    The team management and Selectors should not tell him that this tour is his last chance for the time being so he does not have extra pressure on his head.

    But this should be the plan surely.

    If he doesn't perform he should be dropped and should be told his weak areas and he should work on them at NCA and than with modified technique and approach he should pile up runs and comeback to the team after next season as a refined improved Sohaib Maqsood if he scores enough runs.

    He still averages 43 and 41 in Fc and list A cricket so he can make a comeback even if he gets dropped.

    He must score enough runs this series because we cannot afford to carry non performers. Similar is the case with Rizwan. Both haven't scored runs in there last 2 international series and now both of them are borderline in terms of selection. Sarfraz also needs to score some runs in Odi cricket otherwise we have option of Rehan Afridi and Saifullah Bangash. No player is indispensable.

    Atleast Akmal is a very good fielder... I doubt We'd say the same for Maqsood. And to think some users on here thought he'd be captain material

    Depends on the management.

    He has the potential to be one of our mainstays in the LOI's team, but let's see what the management think of him (although dropping him down to no. 6 or 7 isn't a good sign).

    Give him a series or two at no. 5 or 4 and see where it goes.

    Has been treated like dirt. The selectors need to realize that for all their faults, Akmal, Maqsood and Rizwan have shown great ability at the international stage and thus, need to be permanent fixtures in our ODI squad.

    If those are the best we got, then I surely appreciate Misbah even more.

    And I fully side with him, for not attacking.

    Those 3 are walking wickets in any game.

    Yeah, those 3 have so much potential and need to be supported.

    I can see Rizwan being dropped (sad reality), instead of the management trying to work on his weakness against spin.

    He is an intelligent batsman and can find the gaps on a regular basis against pace, although he does struggle against spin and he does need to get it sorted out, but he does require help from the coaching staff and that is what the coaching staff are being paid to do.

    They should do their job and work with him because we can't afford to lose another young talent.

    he needs to play his natural game, for some strange reason he is being used as a hitter when the required run rate is 10 per over, how do you expect him to construct innings in these situations. I know others don't bat for him but others before him need to play quicker and not create such situations where only option to win is slog from ball one

    He is probably the 2nd worst batsman against spin after rizwan in the pakistani team and he usually plays his shots in the air which makes him a high risk player and apart from that he has the tendency to brainfreeze at occassions. So all that doesnt make him international quality at all.


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    He is bad against spin after his first few matches we played mostly on slow tracks and he also came down the order so was not able to settle against spin. Inzi had also trouble judging spin so he used to get to the pitch and hit the spinner out of the park instead of letting the ball spin.
    Many people consider Inzi a great player of spin he was not but he knew his weakness and attacked the spinners out of the attack.

    well he played against steyn and morkel in UAE and in SA i dont know what u talking about.. Steyn even got fifers in two matches that maqsood played... In SA even MISBAH got single digit scores, where maqsood from the middle order managed to survive for one hour or more every time when walked into bat before MISBAH trying to build partnership and absorb pressure.. If you had watched his very first match against SA in UAE, they celebrated maqsood's wicket as if they have already won the game though misbah was standing at the non-striker's end to note UA and AFRIDI are coming in next... and as usual with 30-40 runs needed and 5 wickets in hand neither misbah nor UA, afridi could finish it off...

    He has got no hunger to improve. Looks lazy on the crease and while fielding. He should be dropped altogether for a year, so he can analyse his batting and work on it. I initially had thought that we got a match winner .

    Not a huge fan of him. I think he has to improve a lot. I believe he started at number 3 and then kept getting pushed down the order. His knock in Hambantota against Sri Lanka was impressive but other than that he hasn't really been exceptional except during the beginning of his career in the UAE.

    I think Haris Sohail is a better number 3 at the moment and I just don't think there's any point in playing a player like him down the order.

    His feet seem to be stuck in cement at the crease, very flat footed and has had some bad dismissals recently plus a disappointing World Cup.

    Afridi happened to him. He wants to be a superstar like him.

    He used to idealize Misbah during his early days but now it seems he changed his inspiration.

    You can't become a proper cricketer by following the footstep of national clown.

    He needs to understand that International cricket is a level above domestic cricket. At times, I feel that he does not show game awareness or respect towards opposition.

    I won't divulge into saying that he is a brainless slogger but everything that he has shown recently points towards this.

    He needs to improve his fielding - extremely lazy there and always misses a few chances after which he points towards the ground or ball as if he wasn't able to see it.

    Not sure he fits in the team right now in my book but there is definitely something to work with. All those comparisons with Inzi were too early - a lesson for experts as well who should remain level headed in creating expectations.

    That is case for most Pakistan batters.

    Pakistan needs to find players for tough conditions.

    I think people are being a bit harsh on him. He has struggled, yes, but he is not a college back. Plus it doesn't help when your treated unfairly and have had injuries.

    That wrist injury had an impact but the thing is just because of our impatient nature we make them an ATG just after few innings and then try to remove them after few failures I guess He Maqsood became an star so early thats the reason for his decline just like Shezzy and chota Akmal!

    that was sarcastic bro... hopeu took it that way.... It is quite norm with PCT & PCB, youngsta beauties will always have a roller coaster ride in the batting order to accomodate misfiring or underperforming seniors

    Seems that the problem of all talunts in Pakistan is that they fall to pieces when asked to bat below 4. You know, because they have the techniques to face the new ball with a straight bat.

    When a talented kid is identified in Pakistan he is made to open or play one/two down from his school days, through club cricket and eventually in domestic. When these kids make it to the national side they are immediately put in the lower order (because apparently seniors are made to play at the higher positions) and they are unable to fulfill a role they have never been accustomed too..

    you have it the other way around. the seniors in Pakistan team always bat at 4 or down, they wait for the pitch to ease up and the bal to get old so they can go and cash in. The younger players are mostly sent up as sacrificial lambs.

    Inzi, Yousaf, Misbah, etc, with the exception of Younis Khan, they have all batted in middle order.

    That is true, I was just trying to present a possible reason why each and everyone of our youngsters fail when they are played in the lower order.

    They should do their job and work with him because we can't afford to lose another young talent.
    NZ have no spinners so Rizwan is safe
