    Still can't believe he replaced Sami in tests who is a far far superior batsman and has much higher ceiling.

    Shan I hope you are reading this my advice to you is quit playing do some coaching qualifications in a few years with your sound knowledge and dedication to the game you may become a quality coach like John Buchanan or Bob Woolmer if that does not work out do some commentary gigs I am sure its not that hard to replace Rameez as face of Pakistan cricket commentary

    Probably doesnt matter who captain of pakistan is, Shan masood will keep getting picked in the pakistan sqauds again and again based on non cricketing merit. Then depends what options the pakistan captain at time has and wether this walking wicket is picked in a final 11.

    Next farhat/fasial, will be getting paid holidays for the next 5 years.

    THe irony is though that those two had far superior domestic records espeically farhat.

    Shan is in denial regarding his selections.

    Let me say it again, Shan's "amazing" FC season where he scored 1000+ runs came at an average of 40.40, below the career averages of many a pak player.

    Even leaving aside stats, just look at how Anderson made him look like Chris Martin on flat UAE pitches, let alone what happened in England.


    If Shan is truly the nice guy he is made out be to he will effectively recuse himself like Junaid Zia did

    Made the excuse that he had exams or educational commitments. His dad was PCB chairman, and Aamir Sohail was the mouth piece promoting Junaid in the same way Shan is now : ie he is educated, bright, hard working, fittest player in pakistan.

    The other thing was that Junaid got bullied by a lot of the senior players at the time , but what he did still should be commended

    Really! That's true patriotism from Junaid Zia.
    This is what we expect from Shan. He knows he is a proven cr@p but so what he can get a decent career elsewhere since he is educated. Wake up Shan and call it quit for the love of the nation and encourage guys like you to do the same.

    If only we can make a hybrid of Shan Masood and Umar Akmal. Shan wants to do well, is hardworking and has a good head in his shoulders but is very limited as a batsman and not much talent to rave about.

    While Umar has got everything except a good head.

    It would be an absolute disgrace if this guy comes anywhere near the Pakistan first XI in future. An absolute travesty. The guy is useless. Anderson treated him like a 2 year old. He is a walking wicket against anyone who can swing the ball.

    Sami Aslam is ten times better. PCB - please invest in Sami Aslam for tests. Azhar Ali and Sami Aslam to open in Tests.

    Fakhar/Sharjeel/Farhan/anyone else (I have not seen Farhan) : Open in T20 and ODI

    If this Masood chap makes any Pakistan team........ facepalm

    people should ask themselves why Shan gets consistent interviews everyone couple of months but a guy who has far more reason to be aggrieved like Sami Aslam hardly gets any beyond the great work here at PP

    PCB should look to make him take up the mic in the combox, we need someone to take the mantle after Rambo and Shaan seems the perfect guy.

    Also since he actively plays domestics he would most certainly know more indepth attributes of up coming players.

    KARACHI: Pakistan left-handed batsman Shan Masood has set his focus on performing in domestic cricket and believes he can impress the selectors to enter the squad which will host Sri Lanka in the UAE.

    Shan, while talking exclusively to The Express Tribune during the final of the Red Bull Campus Cricket tournament at the Moin Khan Academy, Karachi where Jinnah Degree College Karachi beat UCP Lahore to qualify for the Campus Cricket finals in Sri Lanka, said that he is no hurry to represent Pakistan in the ODIs and T20Is.

    When asked when he is going to make his debut in the ODIs, Shan said: “My domestic season in ODI cricket went really well. Over the year, I scored about 1,200 runs. Also, I played the last T20 competition. So I have set my focus on performing in the domestic circuit [in all formats]. Everything else in the hands of the selectors, but if the opportunity comes knocking on the door, I’ll grab it. However, I am in no hurry.”

    Shan played his last Test for Pakistan when the team won the three-Test series 2-1 against West Indies at the latter’s home in May — the farewell series for former captain Misbahul Haq and veteran Younus Khan — and scored 9 and 21 runs respectively in both innings.

    When asked if he sees himself in the squad for Sri Lanka’s tour of the UAE, the 27-year-old said: “I’m always hopeful. However, the team has its own requirements and the selectors have their own. If I tick all the boxes, God willing I will be in the final squad.”

    Shan has represented Pakistan in 10 Tests as of now, and has toured three different countries — Sri Lanka in 2015, England in 2016 and West Indies in 2017 — with the national team, and he believes playing on foreign pitches becomes easier if you can learn to handle pressure.

    “For a batsman, international conditions are much easier,” said Shan. “It is harder to be a batsman in domestic cricket. If you perform in these [domestic] conditions, all you have to do is take the pressure of international cricket and apply yourself effectively.”

    The southpaw was a part of the squad during Pakistan’s famous tour of England in the summer of 2016 where they drew the four-Test series 2-2, and his experience of a full-house crowd, he believes, was amazing.

    “It is harder to play in an empty stadium,” said Shan. “When you are at a ground like Lord’s, the public announcer calls your name, first day, first Test of the summer, 30,000 fans are cheering, that gives you motivation to perform. You zone out once you step onto the pitch. Things change after you see such a crowd.”

    Shan was termed as one of the fittest cricketer alongside Misbahul Haq and Younus Khan when the team was sent for training to Kakool for training with the Pakistan Army before the tour of England, and the Pallekele centurion believes Mickey Arthur’s arrival changed the trend.

    “Since the arrival of Mickey Arthur, the trend of focusing on one’s fitness has set in,” he commented.

    During his short stint with the national team after his debut in 2013, Shan has already faced a confidence-denting crowd, which he faced in Manchester during England-Pakistan second Test in 2016.

    “The worst crowd I faced was during our second Test against England at Manchester,” Shan revealed. “It was Saturday and the crowd there is ready to boo you on every mishap, every misfield. Also if England is bowling and you are batting, they don’t allow you to get settled and don’t let go off a chance to boo you.”

    Moreover, as any Pakistani cricketer would say, Shan also loves Pakistan fans. “Pakistani fans, meanwhile, are the best,” he said. “Wherever you go, they always give you love and cheer for you.”

    Red Bull Campus Cricket may not be the most talked about event in Pakistan at the moment, but Shan believes the initiative is great considering the condition of domestic cricket.

    “This system will help Pakistan eventually,” he said. “We lag behind because a cricketer’s life is limited to the game only and a student can’t actively participate in sports and ends up in a 9-5 job or enters business. However, when I see this platform, there are students who can go to the university and play cricket too, which is great.”

    I have been following his work out routine and videos on IG and I must say he is working extremely hard on his fitness. I really hope he can make it count by scoring some runs.

    I always admire players who may not be the most naturally talented or gifted but work hard and give it their all to achieve their dreams.

    His fitness and work ethic has never been in doubt.

    However, no gym routine will rectify his weaknesses outside the off-stump or against short-pitched bowling.

    Like I said, every shortcoming can be rectified by putting in the long yards. If he can do it in fitness, let's hope he can also put it in the effort to overcome his weaknesses in Cricket.

    He seems to have a good head on his shoulders, which is rare in Pakistan Cricket. So let's hope for the sake of Pakistan Cricket he is able to improve on his past performances.

    I am a great believer in hard work too, but Shan Masood already works twice as hard as the others and he is still useless.

    Hard work cannot make up for an abject lack of talent.

    Hard work cannot make up for a diabolical batting technique, in which his feet, hands and head are all in the wrong place whenever a bowler faster than 125K pitches the ball on or outside off-stump.

    @Amjid Javed is quite right.

    Shan Masood has zero cricketing credentials to play international cricket. His skills - the English language and good manners - should be used having him drive the team bus or booking rooms and flights.

    Shaan Masood is highly rated by Younus Khan. Younus and Shan actually played in the same domestic team and Younus personally selected him. Shan is on record saying Younus bhai helped him a lot to improve his batting against spin. I would say Younus knows more about batting and talent than all of us here on PP combined.

    The reality is that too many of our players are picked for international cricket with basic flaws, they are then dropped due to those flaws and then picked again despite those flaws having not been corrected.

    Shan Masood is an example of this.

    He's a good lad, he will admit his faults. He needs to work on those issues before they pick him again for Pakistan.

    Yeah it's sad to see him fail. I love his attitude and personality. He is a hard working athlete who puts immense effort into his game. I really want to see people like him succeed at this level. Hopefully he works on his flaws and comes back stronger.

    He is the extreme opposite of Umar Akmal, will pass the Yo-Yo with flying colors but his on-field performances are zero and he has nothing to show for it.

    In that sense he is just an average cricketer. Probably below average considering some of the names that have been left out coz of him

    Errr.....Umar Akmal has ZERO on field performances in addtion to failing the fitness test 7 FREAKING TIMES !!!!!!!!!

    At least Dad's dream has an ATG level 100 in a 4th Innings of a successful Pakistani chase, name me one contribution from Umar Akmal that is equvalent to that and also Shan (despite the clear nepotism) is an honest trier ~ I'll give him that!

    Umar Akmal needs nepotism for getting selected, fails fitness tests like it's some spelling bee contest and does jack all on the field ~ remind me again on why he's better than Shan ??

    Point was Umar Akmal had a natural footwork, natural coverdrive, pure timing, great flare about himself, looked a pick above the rest with some of his shots, even a flabby Umar Akmal managed to become player of the tournament for the first edition of PSL, Shan has got nothing on himself - honest trier but zerooooo ability

    With Imam in the picture, Shan's days in the Test squad will be numbered.

    Carried his bat today in the One Day Cup with 145* off 146 balls in a winning total of 296/9 for UBL.

    Good knock but PTV is one of the weakest teams in the tournament.

    Shan Masood in the runs again. I know he's not exactly the favourite of people on here, but he's been doing amazing this season. And we all know he has all the good attributes a sportsman should have (fitness, work ethic, willingness to learn etc) so maybe he genuinely has improved. If he does get picked for Pakistan in the future at least we know it's on merit rather than nepotism.

    Masood carries on his good form. 83 off 92 in a winning cause for Islamabad. I think people should stop comparing Masood to Donald Bradman though. It's very harsh to compare a great batsman like Masood to someone such as Bradman.



    Jokes aside, I think Masood may have genuinely improved. He seems like the type who would be willing to learn. This may be false hope though if he gets another chance and flops again but I don't think we have seen the end of him in a Pakistan shirt.

    Islamabad Region 254-5 in 50 overs: (Shan Masood 128*, 137 balls, 11x4s, 1x6,

    Lahore Region Blues 255-3 in 48.5 oversMuhammad Saad 100*, 121 balls, 7x4s, 1x6,

    Question is has Shan Masood really improved...
    He is scoring hundreds for fun and has an average double the Bradman

    Result: Islamabad Region won by 9 wickets

    Masood and slow, who said that, i am confused how to react on his performances but this is the first time he has dominated in domestic cricket

    Well if he gets a go in ODIs he would have earned it. He has scored heavily and at a good rate. He is also untested in ODIs so you can't say he is a TTF.

    I still feel that if we are going to try a new opener it should be an aggressive player which despite the recent record I don't think Shan is. Otherwise we should go with Haris as opener who is very competent against pace and can score at a good rate.

    Very surprised but I'm still not convinced. He is a very poor and timid batsman. But he should be tried in an odi series just to see if all this isn't a fluke.

    Has anyone who has seen him bat recently attest to any change in his approach? Not the most talented batsman around, but works hard on his fitness and apparently, his game aswell.

    I saw his century in the National T20 cup, there were many misfields and couple of drop catches towards the latter part of his innings but he did play some nice positive strokes. However we have to take these domestic performances with a grain of salt especially with the TTFs. Lets see how he does in the PSL.

    If not LOI cricket, I hope this positivity reaches into his longer format game. He has been frustrating to watch and this new approach might lead to better results, who knows.

    I don't think he is mentally strong enough for that and was probably chosen for the wrong format but you never know.

    I dunno how to rate Masood. He seems technically ok, nothing spectacular and he seems to have a level head, yet gets out too early, too often.

    I think there are about 3 openers who are higher in the pecking order than him.

    He will because he is simply not good enough. PAK should open with FZ and AA in Tests. But the PCB will make sure that he plays on the tour of England and costs us yet another series there. The last time we won a series in ENG was 96'.

    2016 was SO disappointing because well...
    1st Test: We Won.
    2nd Test: We collapsed on the 5th Day on a Flat pitch. (once again)
    3rd Test: We won 3 1/2 Days out of 5 but lost due to not playing a 5th bowler.
    4th Test: We Won.
    That series should really have had a 5th Test because I believe PAK could have won it going in with the momentum they garnered from that win.
