    That's very sad news man. He only recently lost his father. May Allah forgive both his parents, widen their grave and grant them Jannat-ul-Firdous. May Allah make it easy for him and his family to recover from this.

    When arthur already conveyed to you that fitness of some bowlers aint good, then why are they selected in the first place?

    Irfan should had never been selected in the first place.

    Even though i doubt it but i still hope they did a fitness test for junaid khan before selecting him

    @Mods can we please replace his pic on the home page in the panel where this headline of his mother's passing is shown? Minor nitpick, but that pic is inappropriate, IMVHO.

    last time he was kicked out from the team mid tour due to Fitness reasons.

    Irfan always had fitness issue, i won't believe it that he has improved his fitness in the last 6 months, unless they conducted a proper fitness test.

    It goes on to show that there is a major gap in communication between the selection committee and the Head Coach.

    My point is, Irfan should never had been selected in the first place unless he had proven his fitness in a fitness test, same for Junaid.

    I think he also deserves some sympathy.

    He is not a good traveller and just like in 2010 when he was put on a flight and asked to play the next day, special care should have been taken of his travel arrangements

    cramps are possible if you are tired and he is not immune to that

    His fitness is terrible, it is why he has been out of the team for long. Even though he got a test debut and was very talented but his fitness is a joke.

    Fitness could always improve if players work religiously on it. I doubt any of these players continued their fitness trainning after that army camp.

    Also if arthur send irfan back just because of little cramps, then shouldnt had mickey arthur been scrutinised?

    Junaid's back of a length rubbish is going to get smashed. His only saving grace will be the death bowling.

    Like with the selection of Guli in England, this is one way of getting rid of the dead wood.

    Warner must be licking his lips at the prospect of facing Hasan Or will the young bowler rise and improve because from what I have seen, he is poor.

    Sad news Junaid Khan coming back should be good, get another good death bowler alongside Hasan.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    He isn't as bad as you are making him out to be. A 135-137 KPH accurate bowler whom can bowl at the death.

    That was the need of the hour in the ODI team.

    Amir, Hasan, Junaid and Wahab. Great death bowling attack. Slower balls and yorkers galore.

    Don't mind Junaid too muh but would honestly rather have Sohail in ODIs, considering his all-round abilities.

    Let's see whether these 4 play together, or whether Hafeez/Nawaz find a spot.

    Junaid as the replacement, think this will finish his career to be honest and I'm talking about Junaid's.

    Even if he gets demolished, there still is a chance of him being recalled in 3-5 years unless the selectors change. The same guys recalled Sami, Gul and Irfan in last year alone.

    JK of the more recent vintage isn't good but the earlier version was the real deal. I hope for his sake I am wrong.

    My combo would be Imad + those 4, Malik is good enough for 2-3 overs, Imad will do the other 7-8.

    ODI vs Australia: Junaid Khan says he is up for the challenge

    Pakistan fast bowler Junaid Khan expressed jubilation on his selection in the Pakistan's One Day International (ODI) team for the Australia series, calling it a chance for him to prove himself in the field.

    “This is a great moment for me... Although we are sad for the demise of [Mohammad] Irfan's mother, it is a chance for me to prove myself and my fitness in Australia,” Khan told DawnNews.

    “I am experiencing the same feelings right now as I did when I was selected for the first time.”

    Khan was called for the ODI series against Australia as a replacement for Mohammad Irfan, who is returning home following the death of his mother, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials said on Monday.

    The fast bowler has not only played domestic cricket but has also played in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), where he emerged as one of the top three best-performing bowlers. On Sunday, he took four wickets in a domestic one-day match, leading Peshawar to victory against FATA.

    "Getting back in the national team after almost one and a half years is the biggest achievement that I've been waiting for since a long time,” Khan added.

    The fast bowler said that he has been in form for a while, attributing his selection to his consistent performance in domestic cricket as well as the BPL where he scored the second biggest number of wickets in the tournament.

    About the ODI series in Australia, Khan said he is up for the challenge as pitches there are a "bit different".

    “Pitches in Australia are a bit different but I am confident to give a match-winning performance there,” the fast bowler added.

    He also said that teamwork will lead Pakistan to victory in Australia.

    “I cannot go there and take wickets alone. It’s a team effort, and I am sure my captain and fellow bowlers will give me all the support I'll need," he said.

    “I will do my best. The rest is up to fate.”

    The fact that you're not even consdering batting abilities in modern-day LOI cricket shows your narrow-mindedness.

    Amir and Junaid sharing the new ball for Pakistan will be a dream come true for fans of sorts.

    With Hasan Ali and Wahab at first change, I must say it's a pretty good attack.

    Junaid shouldn't be anywhere near the new ball.

    Highly disagree.

    He was so bad in the last FC cup, they dropped him from the XI.

    He was equally rubbish in the OD cup last month.

    This is a selection on his BPL performance and nothing else.

    Lol, what?

    I was specifically differentiating Junaid's and Sohail's bowling. Don't know how you've jump to the conclusion that I'm "narrow minded".

    I happened to agree with your post that I happened to quote, in which you said you would have preferred Sohail ahead of Junaid.

    To be honest, I think he'll find it difficult with his height and pace against the Australian batsmen with the kind of wickets they play on in LOIs.

    Will be interesting to see how he performs.
