    Sarfraz can't even get 100s regularly in domestic games yet we are told there is no one better in the country.

    It is no longer a tough decision.

    Rizwan should replace Sarfraz. Sarfraz has completely lost it. He seems out of spirit and out of ideas.

    But but Rizwan is crap . Sarfaraz is somehow better when he barely gets past 30.

    Even if Rizwan isnít good enough, he deserves a chance to show he is. He wonít do as bad as Sarfaraz.

    Rizwan has his own limitations as we've seen by his attempts to clear the boundaries in one day cricket, but my god even this guy is a 10x upgrade on Sarfraz right now.

    Sarfraz's position is untenable.

    Rizwan will be our test keeper against Australia I think. Sarfraz cant hold a bat these days and Misbah will not be dumb enough to take him on a very tour.

    That mean's Barbar or Shan will be captain of the test team. It will be a risk but there is no place in the test team for Sarfraz.

    Most pakistan keepers look awful with the bat when they 1st come into test sude, but seem to improve after 18 months or so in the team. Rizwan slowly seems to be improving, good luck to him.

    The wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan comes in place of Sarfraz Ahmed in the national side as chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq has finalized the T20I and Test squads for Australia tour.

    Rizwan has been appointed vice-captain for both Test format and T20I and he will be playing the longer version of the game after three years. He played the only Test against New Zealand and 2016.

    According to the sources, Rahat Ali and Imran Khan senior will be making return in Test cricket after long. Mohammad Abbas will lead the bowling charge in two Test matches against the Aussies while Shaheen Shah Afridi and young Mohammad Musa will also be a part of the Test team.

    Abid Ali, Shan Masood and Imam-ul-Haq will be the three openers Pakistan will carry with the Test team to Australia.

    The sources confirmed that Mohammad Irfan will be returning to T20I cricket after three years. He will be accompanied by Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Usman Shinwari.

    Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez are not included in the T20I squad.

    It must be noted here that the green shirts will play three T20Is against Australia on November 3, 5 and 8 respectively while two matches Test series is scheduled from November 21 to December 3.

    His dimagh was always Kharab. I'm not sure why people were expecting miracles from him. As a tet captain some of his personal selections were Mohammad Talha, Asad Ali, Imran Khan sr, Rahat Ali, the only decent pick was Muhammad Abbas.

    Yep that's correct, although Tanvir was probably the best of the horrible lot he picked, he was too old though. Debuting a 30 year old fast bowler is very short sited.

    Don't think Rizwan is a T20 player. Would be better to develop a younger keeper in that format.

    He is doing well in the national t20. Rohail doesn't look ready yet for international. He hasn't had any performances in domestic, but he might be one for the future. The only other option is Kamran Akmal

    I just want us to have a back option. We don't want to be in a situation like we were with Sarfraz where there was no back up in the squad.

    true. Who is there though. There are no performing keepers. I guess if Abid Ali is in the squad then he is the backup for Test and ODIs.

    Rizwan as the main option, while select Bismillah as a backup. Bismillah is a confident batsman.

    There's a reason why you back talent and skills.

    That's why I always said Rizwan is a nothing cricketer, can't hold a bat either, how can he be considered a batsman. Stats don't matter much especially short term.

    Rizwanís keeping has become really good since 2019

    I remember when he played the ODI series against Australia prior to the 2019 World Cup he was so untidy that id written him off in that aspect

    Well done and hope heís consistent

    Rizwan has proved he was the better keeper, and now he has proved that he is the better batsmen aswell.

    Scoring runs on foreign tours that has cemented his place in the team.

    But his keeping is amongest the best in the world, sarfraz can't be compared to him when it comes to keeping.

    After his gutsy performances with the bat this series I'd be tempted to say Rizwan > Sarfaraz in batting as well.

    Close battle? Sarfaraz is a joke in front of Rizwan. Rizwan's batting is not good in the T20 format, but he is still better than Sarfaraz by a huge margin. Sarfaraz should see the writing on the wall and stop dreaming about ever playing for Pakistan again.

    Sarfaraz used to be better. Sarfaraz these days with the bat is completely useless.

    Last year no one had any hope in Rizwan in the two longest formats (tests and ODIs) but I knew he would prove to be a lot better than Sarfraz if given the chance because he works hard on his game and is mentally tough. In the whole Pakistan team he has the shown best attitude, for e.g. when he was dropped from the side in 2015/16, he admitted he wasn't good enough but wouldn't lose hope of getting back in the team.

    Give Rizwan time in T20Is (6-8 months), he'll prove his superiority over Sarfraz in the shortest format as well.

    Rizwan needs Sarfaraz to fulfil his potential. If he sorts out his positioning to the fast bowlers, he will be the amongst the best Keepers in the world. But as we saw with Kami, no competition means laziness for PK WK /bats, we must not make the same mistake again

    At the moment Rizwan and also the prospect worth investing in long term, genuinly surprised by his outstanding keeping in the England series; without a doubt Pakistan's best player of the tour. The only thing Sarfraz offers over him is captaincy ability but teams don't select specialist captains for long do they, just ask Michael Vaughan during his twilight

    Rizwan is much much better than that other guy.i m really happy that other guy has been kicked out of team.The series Rizwan is having the other guy can only dream of playing and keeping like that.That useless other guy should never be selected in any format.Useless of highest level.

    Maybe if he works on his power game he can become better in 1 year but at the moment I'd pick sarfraz and rizwan as reserves. Rohail should be around the squad and also thiers a young power hitter keeper he played in u19s

    Muhammad Haris.

    However, my fear is that he's not in any reckoning and probably will just fritter out into oblivion or play some second 11 cricket here and there. Personally I really want him to be looked at as he looked like a very modern player but Rohail is way above him in the pecking order and I don't see a status quo change anytime soon.

    Hopefully, Rohail won't play anymore at U19 level and Haris gets some chances and shows his worth.


    Azaadi. InshAllah.

    I agree unless hes picked by a domestic team or psl team proberly best chance is play in psl as we dont have many keepers batters.rohail is defo way above the pecking order.

    Both are poor keepers, but Sarfraz is a match-winner with the bat in Asia, and Rizwan cannot play the same role because he's not as good vs spin.

    Rizwan can score runs in Tests in UAE/Asia in the top-order though, but his game is not organized enough for Tests yet.

    In Limited Overs, Rizwan though has the potential to be the hard hitting, dynamic WK batsman we have yearned for years.

    Unlike Sarfraz, he has age and time on his side and is a much superior athlete and fielder.

    Rizwan should be given the gloves in Limited Overs now and take up the number 6 spot, which is ideal for him.

    In 3-4 years, he could be ready to take over as Test keeper as well.

    However, that's not going to happen because Sarfraz doesn't give dhoka and has just been handed in the T20I captaincy, while his fans have earmarked him as Azhar's successor in ODIs as well.
    Good analysis except hard hitting.

    Babar Azam:

    [Sarfaraz or Rizwan for T20I series?]

    "Rizwan played outstandingly well in the Test series and is in good form; We have been the top ranked T20I team under Sarfaraz; Both are in good touch; Sometimes its a difficult choice when both the keepers are in good form but we will take the decision which is best for us"

    Sarfaraz comes in for Rizwan in this final T20I vs England. Perhaps they are hoping he can offer more with the bat in this format.

    Sarfaraz with one of the most pathetic attempt (or lack thereof) at stumping Moeen, reminding us all why Rizwan should clearly be the #1 keeper.

    Precisely why Rizwan is better.

    In general, the better keeper should be picked regardless of batting. One missed chance can cost a game.

    In Rizwans case, he's a better batsman and keeper.

    I can sympathize with Sarfraz but continuing the "shabash shabash" chants right after youve missed an easy stumping is just downright annoying.
