He is a player that should be backed and given confidence because he's got natural ability to put the ball balls away. He can be our Warner if persisted with.
    Sharjeel has no ability against spinners. He will be exposed badly in subcontinent against a decent spinner.

    Now you're disparaging his replacement.

    I'm confused.
    I still prefer Sharjeel over Salman Butt.


    You gotta work until your idols become your rivals.

    Lol @Junaids saying Asif would have done well on these pitches

    The only time he did well in Oz was when the pitch was greener than the grass in Sydney 2010

    He would have comfortably averaged 60+ at a SR of 80 and economy rate of 4.29 (See what I did there )

    As long as people refer to this series, I will point out that the result was a result of Pakistan deluding themselves that they could cope without their only proven batsman and bowler in Australia.

    It decided the series.

    Umar might have scored a 80 (85) Im guessing?

    Lol. You've been saying that for ages and continue to say it. You must be so heartbroken not to have had Butt on the team. Seriously man, get over it already.

    Good to see positive intention by Sharjeel.Sami would play in this pitch like minefield with his endless tuk tuk and score 10 of 60.

    Yes Mohammad Asif who averages 73 in Australia if you take out the 2010 Sydney Green Mamba, is proven in Australia

    Never mind not having played in 6 years, and having dodgy fitness

    If Rahat played he would have taken 6 for 103 at 3.06 RPO in the first innings, scored 14 (36) and hung around with Younus long enough to get his double century and 10K and then picked up 5 for 63 at 3.4 in the second innings and then put his feet up to watch the top order finish off victory with ten wicket in hand

    It's kind of funny, it's like Pakpassion had the responsibility of selecting Asif and Butt lol. Like posters here were to blame.

    Asif and Butt didn't play because they fixed for 5 years and weren't there when we needed them. Their fault. They would most likely be playing this tour if they didn't fix. But they did. And selectors didn't feel it was worth bringing back two fixers. It's hassle bringing in fixers back into the team (who already hurt the integrity of Pakistan cricket). Five years out is a lot, there's a good chance they won't be the same as when they left (Amir isn't even the same as what he was before and he's a lot younger than the other two).

    Furthermore Asif is now getting old for a fast bowler, so dunno how many years he'd have left anyway. And Butt was so mediocre as a batsman (apart from Australia), that is seems hardly worth bringing him back (bringing him back for just three tests seems dumb, not building for the future at all).

    But of course literally every poster on here knows this anyway .

    PAK has to come out of UAE, or UAE tracks have to change - otherwise, future is India of 60s & 70s; or may be even Bangladesh of 2000 .......
    Fast bowlers or otherwise, your example of India in the 70s is a poor one. India was ranked #1 in mid-70s, so whatever strategy they were following was a successful one.
