    Our batting stocks are so thin, some of these squads look quite bowler-heavy. There's plenty of youngsters though which is good to see.

    Sindh look the strongest for me.

    However some of these players could be named in the Test squad like Shadab, Rizwan, Ashraf, Aslam, Sohail Khan and Zakir. Are they going to be replaced through another draft ?

    Good to see so many youngsters but There are also many TTFS still better than PSL squad (Less TTFS).
    Hafeez, Akmal brothers, Anwar, Gul, Khurram, Iftikhar, Sami, Khasif, Zulfiqar,Maqsood, Future Young TTF Arsal, Imran, Fahad (expired).... Say 25 TTF out of 75 players. Still we have a set of atleast 30 players with potential.

    Baluchistan is the most exciting side with the greatest number of future national team prospects.

    They are also being captained by a relatively new and unknown bloke. It would be nice to see how he does as captain.


    Glad we don't have Misbahs and Azhar Alis hogging the captaincy spot.

    None of the players from these squads looks like they'll make it to the Test squad apart from Sami Aslam.

    I hope this doesn't mean that Sami is dropped from the Test side...

    Expect only one or two changes to the test side at max.


    Probably will take Usman Salahuddin and would drop Imran and/or Rahat for Hasan Ali or some other pacer.

    Malik, hafeez, butt, kamran, gul are there... Good to see from the selectors to go for young captains.... even then Anwar ali is a very poor choice, should have gone to Haris sohail or sami aslam or Umar amin or even hammad azam...

    no shehzad, shan masood, hasan ali and asghar as these players will be part of the test squad...so sami aslam will be dropped from the test squad which is pathetic and ridiculous if it happens......

    That was one of Inzy's initiatives. He's been wanting young captains in domestic cricket, this is from a recent interview:

    It is bizarre that we do a lot of experimentation at international level just to find how good players are with leadership. If players fail at that level, we have to start over, and that is a waste of time.

    I have told all the coaches to identify players who are captaincy material at domestic level and allow them to flourish.

    Recently I saw a senior player, Sohail Tanvir, lead the Rawalpindi side regardless of him having no near or distant chance of becoming Pakistan captain. Why not make a young player who has leadership potential a captain and groom him accordingly?

    To be devil's advocate - you probably need some of TTFs who are recognizable faces to attract some crowd. Also some of these TTFs are good in domestic circuit but have failed to translate their success in the international arena, so playing them may add competitiveness to the games and will allow youngsters with real talent to stand up. Arsel Sheikh selection under the watchful eyes of Mr Inzi has definitely left a bad taste in the mouth. Cant believe that there aren't more deserving kids out there. Need to introduce talent scout hunters so they can bring forth real talent

    What I understand is that it's a semi closed draft - players were picked under some classification. It's not about the best players, but the best available under a category. It's a reasonable method, though they forgot to add a classification of WK, which is understandable - PCB had to maintain it's standard in operating procedure. This tournament should be played in double league, that's 8 matches for each team. This time 6 stadiums will be used for 11 matches, therefore wickets should be much better. Well matched 5 teams, but probably Sindh has slightly better squad.

    Only notable miss I would have liked to see is the U19 WK (Umair Masood?). Is this Ruhail the 16 years old kid playing brilliantly in Australia?

    People, THIS is the talent we have.

    Who among them can be a modern top order batsman for us?

    Imam?
    Fakhar?
    Israrullah?
    Saad Ali?

    And here we keep dreaming of winning tournaments. This is the caliber of our talent.

    For some reason people are hyping Saad Ali without seeing him. Show me his video. Why no selector rates him and why he wasn't selected for U23?

    Pak cricket is doomed.

    Yes I think he is the same kid.

    I was also surprised at the Umair Masood omission.I think he is the best young WK batsman from Pakistan at this point in time and that includes Rizwan as well.He needs to be groomed immediately by PCB but going by the track record of PCB I can just pray.

    The departmental odi cup had a couple of guys who opened and were among the top ten scorers at a strike rate over 100. Neither are playing. Instead we have imam ul haq who scored a lot of runs but at a strike rate just above 70

    I'm not sure who the guys are and why they aren't picked. Our local coaches still like and prefer 70 strike rate technique batsmen.

    Imam, Saud can be great in Tests but the thick management haven't got a CLUE of how to build an LOI team.

    Honestly pitches are also to blame here, poor pitches combined with poor batting standards means there is little incentive to go for a big score

    Its a little discussed point...about when and where these matches are played. The departmental one day cup was played in Dec-Jan....not ideal but there were stiff a few scores of 300 and above. The Regional one-day cup that followed, more than half the matches were rained off/fog etc.

    He was just recently named best all rounder in another one day tournament about a month ago.

    Really surprised that he's name was not on the list

    In local lingo we say some things are "dhukka start" meaning they need a nudge, push or in Umar's case a slap to go in the right direction.


    Inzi is hoping that by giving responsibility to Umar his brain may get the dhukka start it so desperately needs. Umar as captain can also play himself at whichever position he desires and then there will be no more excuse of "being made to play far too low in the order"

    Captaincy choices are poor, but otherwise not that bad. There'll be few Arshal Sheikhs, but one has to manage both ends of his job.

    5 Captains should have been - Saud Shakeel, Imad, Shadab, Fahim & Imam/Aga Salman.

    The reason being, Sarfu at 30, should be the Captain till 2021 (CT), unless he becomes unbearable for his fitness. Imad has a chance to become the deputy of Sarfu, so he makes sense - but Umar, Anwar, Fakhar & Rizwan has next to zero chance of Captaining PAK ever; therefore it's a wastage of investment. Had Amir, Babar, Hasan Ali & Sarfu been part of the tournament, I would have made all 4 Captains with Imad the 5th one.

    In those squads, considering potential & age gap, other players (excluding Imad) who has the best chance to lead PAK are Shadab, Sami, Talat, Gohar, Imam, Aga Salman & may be Haris. Sami, Talat & Haris are in the same team with Imad; while Gohar is Shadab's team mate. Fahim is relatively educated & he has a possible longer career - should have been leading Punjab team, because excluding him, that team still has 13 (thirteen, not typo) other candidates who can be better Captain than Umar.

    Hence, it's Saud, Imad, Shadab, Fahim & Imam

    The over abdundance of left arm spinners goes against imo. I feel he is a batsman first but despite his performances people see him as a bowler first, which is a broader issue with allrounders in Pakistan.

    I also think Shadab has stolen his thunder (rightfully so )

    No he came back and played district cricket.

    That was a Tanz. Read between the lines :-)

    Very disappointing indeed. With 15 days training he was bowling those mean 139kph slinging reversing yorkers when he wasn't in required shape.


    He had all ingredients to become a quality T20 & Odi bowler who could graduate to the level of " Fast " category.

    I think, playing XI must have one emerging player, rest are open picks. This is probably going to be the starting XI


    SINDH
    1. Manzoor, 2. Zain, 3. Saud Shakeel, 4. Asif Zakir, 5. Fawad, 6. Badar, 7. Hasan+, 8. Anwar*, 9. Usama, 10. Raees, 11. Gul
    It's between Saud & Akbar - I go for Saud, because he is specialist No. 3 & a lefti, bowls SLAO as well.


    FEDERAL
    1. Sami, 2. Talat, 3. Ruhail Nazir+, 4. Haris, 5. MoHa, 6. Sarmad Bhatti, 7. Imad*, 8. Zohaib, 9. Sohail Khan, 10. Md. Irfan (Leggi), 11 Sameen Gul.

    I am sure that MoHa won’t bat at 5, rather he’ll force one of Talat or Nazir down to bat at the spot he thinks he can score runs – and he’ll get that as well, though in PAK team now, he is likely to bat at 6.

    KPK
    1. Imran Butt, 2. Israrullah, 3. Adil Amin, 4. Malik, 5. Iktekhar, 6. Rizwan*+, 7. Shadab, 8. Gohar, 9. Md. Sami, 10. Waqas, 11. Imran Sr.

    However, I think, they’ll drop Gohar for Kashif. Imran Sr. or Taj Wali should play because of so many spin options from batsmen.

    PUNJAB
    1. Nasir Nawaz, 2. Butt, 3. Kamran+, 4. Amin, 5. Umar*, 6. Hammad, 7. Fahim, 8. Nasim, 9. Bilawal, 10. Zulfi Babar, 11. JK

    May be they’ll drop Nasir Nawaz at 5, promoting everyone; unless Arsal Sheikh gets the preference in emerging quota.


    BALUCHISTAN
    1. Fakhar*, 2. Imam, 3. Maqsood, 4. Saad Ali, 5. Aga Salman, 6. Bismillah+, 7. Yamin, 8. Khalid Usman, 9. Azizullah, 10. Mudassir, 11. Shunwari

    Probably, distinctively poor XI, looking at the bowling options, but batting is decent. Not sure why Azizullah is doing here, when they had much better options to pick an all-rounder.


    Actually, now Federal & Punjab team looks better balanced than Sindh. 4 matches are too little, but I am sure the Final will be between these 3 teams.


    However, I am really surprised to see so many players (on top of PAK Internationals) missing from the 65 players (10 under emerging). May be 2 Regional spots are not a good idea.

    So this above was the original schedule.

    However, Shahryar Khan said yesterday that PCB had 'a talk' about the scheduling and decided that 'it was not logistically and financially feasible' to have the tournament in different cities and thus the whole tournament will be held in Rawalpindi only...

    Looking forward to it...

    Playing the whole tournament at one venue? Whats wrong with PCB? Instead of using millions on recreational tours abroad why not spend money on playing a tournament at different venues.
