    "If" Shan and Khurram Manzoor are selected for the ODIs no one say that are "non deserving" anymore.

    Both of them have done everything that is required to do in domestic to earn a call back.

    Dont be fooled by his runs in the tournament. The pitches are batting paradise, domestic cricket quality is pathetic so anyone can score loads of runs. Once they go back to intertional arena then they offer nothing and becomes liability on the team. Look at shehzad hes the best example of this. Gets dropped, scores runs and then fails again at intertional arena

    Now this is a huge conundrum for the selectors.

    - He merits selection based on his performances in OD tournaments.
    - We all know how poor he is against quality fast bowlers in international cricket.
    - If the selectors do not pick him people will say there is no merit and all selections are based on sifarish.

    What to do?

    Now you see why selectors pick players based on PSL performances and domestic kings like Fawad, Sadaf do not get selected.

    Why is it a conundrum, anymore than any other selection decision?

    We know he is questionable in certain conditions in TEST cricket. But plenty of players in every country who don't get selected for Tests yet still merit places in ODIs sides.

    Haven't we learned by now that each format should be treated as its own game?

    The connection to the PSL and Fawad and Sadaf is not clear. Also because neither is technically speaking merely a domestic king.

    Fawad scored a daddy ton on international debut and averages 40 in Tests; Sadaf has been player of the series on two A team tours.

    It is not apparent that the PSL, a T20 tournament, should be the exclusive guide for selecting ODI players. The reason for why selectors pick PSL performers is that a televised performance acts as a firewall for them.

    Some people including the chief selector himself are of opinion that the technical side of their game should be given more importance. We all know how Shan Masood struggles against quality fast bowlers the reason this could be a difficult decision for the selectors. You just can not ignore Shan Masood's performances even though people have written him off and will bash the selectors if he gets selected.

    i don't see a great national furore erupting if shan is left out, but there will of course be lobbying by daddy, and since daddy has managed to get him selected before, on the basis of far worse performances, one may expect that he will be given a shot.

    What a turn around from Super fit Shan Masood.

    As far as domestic performances go, he can't do much but selectors must also be able to see something a little extra in players, a spark lets say. Seeing shan bat in England and elsewhere, he doesnt seem to have the metal fortitude or the stroke play. I may be compleetly wrong, so might as well try him in an ODI series, as Fakhar desperately needs a partner.

    But no one is scoring remotely as many runs, as consistently, as Shan. Why would you select someone who is doing worse than him, on these supposedly benign pitches, to partner Fakhar? And he is a different case from Sehzad. Shehzad has been tried in internationals, multiple times. The best domestic performance should not be the basis for infinite selection for the national team, but it merits one selection at least, one would like to hope.

    If you look at the following list you'll see Pujara in the top 5 along with Masood in the all time best list A averages but does that mean he is ODI standard? - of course not. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/con...ds/282914.html

    Stats without context is meaningless - these averages don't tell you how Masood and Pujara would do against quality pace attacks, big run chases and etc.

    You need to actually watch the player than just rely on stats. For instance Sharjeel and Kamran were MOTM in PSL 1 and PSL 2 respectively with similar stats but one had the gift of timing with his shots against quality pace whereas the other was a slow track bully with major technical issues.

    It is just unfortunate the standard of first class cricket in Pakistan is of such a low standard. Filled with players of trundlers, poor fitness, batsman who have not been coached well.

    From his presser in Asia Cup today:

    “The preparation will remain the same, we have got our processes that are standard and suits the team. Everyone knows their roles. I don’t think it (our preparation for the next India match) is going to be any different, what is going to be different is going to be the way we play on Sunday or any other game starting with Afghanistan. I think that if you look at bowling attacks, especially spinners, Afghanistan have the best bowling attack in this tournament. If you talk about UAE conditions, they have as much experience of playing here as we do. So we won’t be taking them lightly at all. They beat Sri Lanka, who is a really good team. Afghanistan is a really good opposition, and in our match against them we will focus on our strengths and our effort will be to use that to negate their strengths.”
