    I think having Malik in our team for World Cup is not such a bad idea, we don't have an adequate replacement ready yet & it's too late to try some young players like Saud or Saad before World Cup.

    The thing that really bothers me is Hafeez & Malik playing in the same XI, its like playing with 10.5 players against any top 5 team. One of them must sit out to make room for other in every match.

    He would have if someone would have supported him. Funnily enough, we would have lost to Afghanistan without him as well, and people want him kicked out so that we can beat England, South Africa and India in the World Cup.

    Would we have lost 6 out of 8 ODIs vs New Zealand in 2018 if Shoaib Malik had any ability to face pace bowling above 125kph ?

    In 2018 against nonminnows, Shoaib Malik averaged 25 at a SR of 67 and yet folks make out like his place in the team is unquestionable.

    Malik averaged 25 at a SR of 67 against nonminnows in 2018 in ODIs.

    This output from a senior batsman is unacceptable.

    Lol Bhai why are you bumping this thread out of nowhere?


    Malik is okay (35@85@#5), right now Hafeez (30@75@#4) is the culprit.

    This Top 5 is probably the best that can play in the WC:
    Fakhar, X, Babar, Haris, Malik.

    If Umar Akmal is fit enough, he is the only guy I can see replacing Malik at #5 within the next two years.

    Malik would not get into any top side because he is a middling player at best. However, when you consider his overall performance since 2015, it is quite ridiculous to suggest that he should be dropped.

    We are not exactly loaded with world class players who would prove to be upgrades. Considering the state of our team, he walks into the middle-order with his eyes closed.

    People have this concept that if you are a minnow basher, you are useless.

    When you are Pakistan and your batting riches are precisely equal to zero, having a minnow basher should be cause for celebration.

    Malik and Imam are ridiculed because they bash minnows and not score against top sides. But conveniently forget that you are still required to beat minnows. They do not get beat on their own.

    Without Imam and Malik, Pakistan would've lost against Afghanistan. Without Malik, Pakistan would've lost multiple matches against Zimbabwe. They have saved Pakistan's blushes. You still need minnow bashers in your team when you are struggling to even find 1 quality batsman.
