    "I think Salman Butt would be a very good addition to the Pakistan team" : Inzamam-ul-Haq




    Inzi also said that Rizwan has gone on a couple of tours without getting a chance to play much because of Sarfraz, so now is his chance.

    Inzamam has been such a let-down as a chief selector. Don't think Mickey Arthur would even want him around the squad.

    theres been so much media pressure i woudnt be surprised if he is selected. he has had a decent season, although several players did better than him in the QEA. In the recently concluded LA. the problem is that its just one season. and one swallow doesnt make a summer.

    if this quote is not out of context, its very disappointing from inzi.

    There is no need to bring in any other opener , rather we should stick with Aslam. I think more than Butt, Hafeez is a threat to Aslam, as the drama queen will be back in Pak team especially if we are playing at UAE.

    So Inzi is planning to bring in Butt back, has brought Hafeez back too, Misbah has refused to retire even after a shameful performance with bat and as a skipper, it means that we might see a Pak team with no youngster, babar and Aslam will be forced out to accommodate some ttf's.Don't see any future for such a team.

    Butt
    Azhar
    Younis
    Misbah
    Shafiq
    How long do you think this older team can play competitive cricket? you are mistaken if you think Haffez will be out of team and butt will be in, no body can throw the drama queen out , especially when his buddy has plans to remain captain for another year or so.

    I am surprised at why people continue to criticize Azhar Ali's batting. His performance in ODIs is also very good with average of 40 at a SR of 76. Yes the SR is low, but Salman Butt has batted at the same SR with an average of 36. Fact is stats prove Butt will not do any better than Azhar Ali. In ODIs if they really wanted a change they should go for Kamran Akmal who at least strikes at 80+. Only reason I can understand to bring in Butt right now is he can be a good guide to Sharjeel. In tests Sami Aslam has done decently so a change there is harsh for now.

    SR of 76 is very low for modern standard to be honest.

    No doubt Azhar Ali is bad captain, and he will not be the captain after Aussie Series. But to claim fixer will out perform Azhar Ali in no time? Seriously? He can't even play at SR of 70 in domestic, how is he going to play the so called modern ODI cricket at international level?

    Agreed, but by Pakistan standards they are ok, especially if the batsman has a 40+ average. Pakistan is in no position to drop a batsman who averages 40+ even if his SR is low.

    Not only is he past his prime and a disgrace to this country. But he is also a mediocre batsman who will bring nothing new to the team. And seeing how he was captain of the side when all this happened I don't think he should ever be forgiven and allowed back into the team.

    Gonna stop following Pakistan cricket all together. This is ridiculous bringing back all the ttf's back. Shame on you inzamam. Starting to hate this guy had high expectations from him. Hope he gets fired. We got no planning for future all we do is bring back the oldies. In test you got misbah and younis who don't want to retire. Plus garbage bowlers like rahat Ali and no ball expert wahab keeps getting picked.

    While in odi's we have of the worst odi bats of modern era opening for us and is also the captain. Now we have malik, hafeez, plus 2 spinning all rounders playing in Australia. In addition to this junaid, wahab and rahat Ali. Honestly this is pathetic. I don't know if Arthur is happy with this or not. If he is then he should be shown the door.if not he should seriously stand up to these pathetic and useless selections.

    I personally dont tgink it's bad idea. He is a very capable batsman. I also thing Asif should be given a chance for at least a series or two . The chief selector isn't doing what he promised "selection on merit" Mikey Arthur can only take the team to the highs if he has no hindrance from the selection committee and other powers that be !

    no. not for a statement like this we ignore things what he did.. he is the one who gave chances to hasan ali, nawaz, asghar, amad butt, sami aslam ahead of shehzad also sticking to the young players like imad wasim, rizwan, babar azam.. and chances for fakhar zaman, jaahid ali, saud shakeel, shadab khan, saif badar in A tours... he has a plan and trying out the ttfs with a last chance before being discarded forever...he tried gul and now gone, same he will try kami and will be gone too...For me he is the best and reasonable CS pak have ever had in the recent past..

    There are younger batters in the country , wasting time on salman Butt is not good idea , but he should be given a go , a fair chance , if he fails , get him out.
