    Bring Sharjeel Khan back, be competitive

    I know, people would blast me.

    But PCB is making a mess out of this.

    Simple logic.

    If he is involved in spot fixing, he should get banned for 5 years, or even life ban could be justified

    If he's failed to report, warn him and fine him heavily.


    Allow him to play CT'17.

    Look these are the realistic options for pakistan, when it comes to opening

    Azhar
    Shehzad
    Kamran
    Fakhar
    Hafeez
    Sharjeel

    Let me mention the average output from these openers(not as per stats, but rather on their potential)

    Azhar: avg:38, str.rate:79

    Shehzad: avg:33, str.rate:74

    Kamran: avg:28, str.rate:83

    Fakhar: I just don't see him as an international material, atleast not for another 6 months. There is a lot of work to be done.

    Hafeez: avg:35, str.rate:78

    Sharjeel: avg:40, str.rate:90

    In a team you need 2 openers.

    Azhar, Shehzad, Fakhar, Kamran, Hafeez, will mostly lose matches for you, rather than winning.

    You cannot afford even 1 among these 5.

    Imagine what would be the output if you play 2, from these 5.

    End of Powerplay 1:37/2(both openers back to the Pavilion)

    Your best bet at CT'17/ Further series would be to have this pair.

    Sharjeel
    Azhar/Fakhar/Hafeez

    Azhar is not getting younger, it's not common sense to invest in him.

    Fakhar, need some more work to be done.

    Hafeez, I really don't like him
    But,......he's Hafeez.

    He's management's kid.

    He is going to be in the team atleast for another year(especially with his performance in this ODI series)

    He would also bowl some economical overs.

    Sharjeel and Hafeez would form a decent pair.

    If PCB is smart(which they aren't), they would bring Sharjeel back to the team, and climb the rankings.

    Who knows, even 6th rank is possible. As Bangla bros are not very far, and SL on the decline.

    If not, showers of embarrassment await at the CT and the preceding series.

    Bro Amir was out for 5 years.

    And Sharjeel 2 months.

    When i say win matches, it's against SL, BAN and WI.

    But if they leave Sharjeel, I bet pakistan can't win matches even against, SL and BAN with such poor top order which has HAFEEZ, KAMRAN and SHEHZAD in top 4

    People are overrating him a lot. He is a solid hitter, but he won't win you matches singlehandedely. He failed against England and has done well only against Ireland and Australia.

    When i say win matches, i mean against SL, BAN and WI. And odd wins against AUS, NZ and ENG

    Without him, you would lose even against the likes of SL, BAN and WI

    bring him back only if he is innocent.

    and yeah i believe a top 4 of Sharjeel, Babar, Haris, and Sarfraz is special and can win matches.


    Sarfi as captain'll lead us to glory.Babar'll be our best odi bat & Haris'll be world class in tests

    Bro, i think you didn't watch him after the ENGLAND series.

    Watch the series in Australia.

    If you still say, he's a hack.

    Let it be. Only hacks would compete with modern cricket teams.

    Not Hafeez, Kamran and Shezi

    If Sharjeel failed to report an approach he should be banned in line with the rules.

    This issue of corruption is far bigger than winning cricket matches. When deciding the punishment, our opening situation shouldn't even be a consideration.

    He played three series

    Against ENG, was his comeback series

    Against WI Avg:38, str.rate 120(what else do you expect. Especially for a pakistani opener)

    Against Australia Avg:50, str.rate 115(Outstanding, against full strength Bowling attack)

    Sethi sahab the corrupt man he is, became judge, jury and executioner. He declared Sharjeel to be guilty of fixing and now he won't go back on his word otherwise it would be a HUGE slap on his face. Sharjeel will get a minimum of one year ban even if it is just failure to report.

    Not someone who's rooting for his comeback but the position Pakistan's limited overs side is in at the moment they'd happily take a solid hitter who succeeded against Australia any day over TTFs like Shehzad and Akmal who can barely strike in the late 70s.

    What are you going on about, did you even watch the Australia Series?

    The guy averaged 50 in Australia against Australia with a SR of 115. Jamshed can only dream of that. We all know what happened last time Jamshed toured Australia. (2015 WC)

    They guy gave us some great starts getting 3 consecutive 50's in his last 3 games and improving greatly in each.

    Overall he looked a much better player than in England was on a vast road to improvement. There is no other opener in Pakistan that can even come close to Sharjeel. He's the best we've got.

    Sharjeel is a hack, not another Saeed Anwar or Zaheer Abbas. Even if we put aside every shred of morality that we have, Sharjeel still isn't worth the effort and bad press because he would most likely have been exposed in England and the same fans that are making him out to be a messiah would be calling for his head.

    We will find another hack to replace him soon enough. Just like he was a replacement for Kamran, who was a replacement for Nazir who was a replacement for Afridi. Pakistan produces hacks aplenty.

    Bring Afridi back and watch him blaze a century in 40 balls on the current Australian pitches. Rohit Sharma averages 80 over there in ODIs, that tells you something.

    So your trying to tell me we have batsman in Pakistan who can blaze 40 ball hundreds in Australian against Australia.

    Interesting analysis, Well Afridi sure accomplished that in the WC 2 years ago. Oh and our current opener Shehzad he sure performed well, along with Nasir Jamshed.

    There is no opener in Pakistan who can average 50 at 100 plus SR in Australia that to against a full strength Aussie Attack.

    I honestly don't care what Rohit Sharma did in Aus, because I would take Rohit any day over the two openers we've got right now.

    All very true. I have to say that in Australia he and Azam looked like the best Pakistani bats for ODIs. Maybe he is he very best as Azam's S/R is not great.

    IMO Sharjeel is the best Opener we have got. I wouldn't say that he is a better player than Azam yet, because Babar has been far more consistent, in his short LOI career, but as far as impact goes Sharjeel would have to be the bigger impact player as of right now.

    Although I believe Babar has the capability of becoming a more dynamic player because he has shown in moments that he can hit. For example the 2nd WI ODI he scored 25 off 9 deliveries after reaching his hundred. He is still very young at the tender age of 22 and has ample time to work on his game.

    As far as our LOI batting is concerned they are both key players for us, and I believe will win Pakistan many matches. I'm just hoping that Sharjeel didn't do any spot fixing.

    Sharjeel Khan is the equivalent loss of Mohammad Amir to a spot fixing scandal...

    Amir at one point made us look like we're gonna add some respectability to our loss..

    Sharjeel did the same in Australia... his batting provided solace in an otherwise inept middle order who played for their averages specially while chasing a big total

    Let justice take its course.

    Amir was only recalled after serving his ban.

    Asif and Butt haven't been recalled, but they have served their bans.

    All three lost five to seven years of their careers and their wealth. They even went to jail. Although Amir appears to have avoided adult prison by taking two to three years of his alleged true age.

    Sharjeel should not avoid punishment just because he is needed. He has to be judged and serve any punishment First.

    Otherwise there is no deterrent.

    Of course he should be punished if proven guilty for spot fixing but if it was just a matter of failing to report than I don't see why he can't return in time for CT he's already missed 2 months of cricket, he will play a big role in Pakistan CT campaign if he is to be selected.

    They guy gave us some great starts getting 3 consecutive 50's in his last 3 games and improving greatly in each.

    Overall he looked a much better player than in England was on a vast road to improvement. There is no other opener in Pakistan that can even come close to Sharjeel. He's the best we've got.
    I don't know what is happening in Pak domestic Cricket at the moment so can't say if anyone is performing better. Sharjeel did well in Australia but I am thinking of Salman Butt making a comeback. He would be my choice if that could happen. Another thing with Sharjeel is his fitness and burgeoning waste line. I think he would be better off losing weight in a restaurant then opening the innings for Pak I am talking one day Cricket here. If playing him means dropping Kamran Akmal then is will be acceptable to me.

    Well here let me tell you the two best performers in the Pakistan domestic circuit for the last while here were Kamran and Shehzad and when they got selected they showed how much Domestic Performance in Pakistan means.

    I'm not going to try and argue with you because it should be fairly common sense that Sharjeel was the best opener we had in quite some time and was improving rapidly.

    Exactly!!!! Why should he even get banned for failing a report for a local league match. I agree with heavy fine and couple of matches bans not more than that.

    Interesting analysis, Well Afridi sure accomplished that in the WC 2 years ago. Oh and our current opener Shehzad he sure performed well, along with Nasir Jamshed.

    There is no opener in Pakistan who can average 50 at 100 plus SR in Australia that to against a full strength Aussie Attack.

    I honestly don't care what Rohit Sharma did in Aus, because I would take Rohit any day over the two openers we've got right now.
    Point being that what Sharjeel did in Australia wasn't all that special considering that the pitches there are tailor-made for a batsman like him. This is the reason I was asking for his inclusion in the test squad as well. However, we don't play in Australia for years now and Sharjeel outside of Australia is nothing special. His pulling and cutting wouldn't work in England.

    We will find another hack to replace him soon enough. Just like he was a replacement for Kamran, who was a replacement for Nazir who was a replacement for Afridi. Pakistan produces hacks aplenty.
    Lmao good coping mechanism. Sharjeel was a special batsman and was going to do great things for us in Limited Overs cricket

    No, it did not and batting in Australia is not difficult. Definitely not for someone like Sharjeel who loves the bounce and can keep playing his short-arm pulls and hacking through the off-side.

    I never rated him as anything more than a hack even while he was playing. I'm not an idiot who falls in love with the new hack on the block because of his boundary-hitting prowess. He wouldn't have done anything special for us. At most, he would have been a 30 averaging batsman, who strikes at around 110. Great on flat pitches but out of his depth whenever the conditions demanded intelligent batting. Hardly spectacular.

Sharjeel has no game to do well against Starc, Hazlewood and Pattingson when the ball is swinging. Any five-year-old knows this. It is also quite obvious that pitches in Australia are extremely flat and thr conditions are not conducive to swing and seam bowling. Therefore the huge totals and monstrous numbers of guys like Warner and Rohit.

    The new ball will swing no matter how flat the pitch is, if conditions are conducive to swing.

    The new ball has always swung in Australia. Pitch conditions do not affect swing. Educate yourself please.

    Yes, Sharjeel's ability to handle swing was on full display in England, where apart from one match, he was unable to score more than 16 runs in any ODI. Truly someone who will be smashing Starc and Hazlewood around in swinging conditions.

    You are welcome to keep crying over a fraudulent hack. To me, he's gone.

    I think Sharjeel did fine in tough conditions as well. Good thing apart from his natural timing and hand eye coordination was his commitment and mindset, He was dead sure when he would attack.

    Windies in UAE also got some shape with new ball and trapped Azhar but he was good.

    During England Series ball did not swing, It was high scoring series with there being a score of 444 by England. Sharjeel got out to soft dismissals which he worked out on later as he was throwing it away, Also in 6 innings he had two fifties in England, Can't really see how it was bad for a comeback series, In first or second match I think he got a virtually unplayable one from Mark Wood.

    1st ODI in England: Out to a short delivery from Wood
    2nd ODI in England: Out to an unplayable seaming delivery from Wood
    3rd ODI in England: Caught in the deep off Woakes
    4th ODI in England: Caught in the covers off Jordan
    5th ODI in England: Caught at mid-on off Woakes

    Sharjeel had one good series against Australia.


    He was guzara in the rest of the series, managing to barely keep his head above the water. PP'ers are making it seem that Sharjeel was the second coming of Gordon Greenidge or Viv Richards.

    Don't worry about him, let him live in his parallel world. Sharjeel was not perfect and never would have been, but what people don't understand (or refuse to understand) is that he was our only opener capable of playing modern cricket. Given his playing style, he would have obviously have had a high failure rate, but 5/10 times he would put Pakistan in an extremely good position of scoring big. Our other options don't even do that 2/10 times. As for those claiming that he isn't a Warner or a de Kock, well yes thank you for stating the obvious. However, he is not competing with Warner or de Kock; he is competing with the other openers in Pakistan and he is far better than them in LOI cricket.

    He's not a world beater (as of yet) but his career was taking off, the guy had freak reflexes and could hit bowlers relentlessly without getting tired. He can put Pak in an excellent position in terms of runs on the board and the next batsmen coming in can start hitting the ball nicely. I want him back asap.

    Just because he wasn't dismissed by it doesn't mean he wasn't troubled by it. All those caught outs were because he was unable to play his regular hacking game.

    Don't worry about hating on Sharjeel.

    Was probably the best LOI opener in the world, challenging the likes of Warner if not better.

    No other ODI opener has done as well as Sharjeel against the top bowling attack of this era AT THEIR home.

    From recent build up, it appears as if, PCB is getting much harder on Shahzaib and Khalid.

    Sharjeel might get away with this.
    Moreover even before CT, I reckon

    Read full lost, before this ridiculous comment.

    I know there are many senseless posters here, that is why I have mentioned something in BOLD.

    If u cannot understand English, then sorry, I can't help you out.

    Anyways, thanks for the useless comment.

    Sharjeel tagged along for the free food. He didn't fix and he will be acquitted. My 2 cents.

    Well, a ban of a year or whatever the PCB is dishing out is way too much for not reporting an approach. A fine and a 3 match ban would have done it. Then again I guess they are sending a message but have the players been properly educated on what to do when an approach is made?

    Sharjeel by Pakistan standards was special. He is one Pakistan player who can play the modern LO style.

    He was making improvements and I think he could have average about 40 with a 90 plus strike rate.

    We obviously miss him and it will take time to replace him but he has only himself to blame.

    If you continue to be so lax about match fixing, don't cry when it happens again.

    Kindly read the post.

    If he has done spot fixing, let alone match fixing, he should be banned for 5 years or even life ban could be justified.

    U cry here, without reading the post.

    Anyways thank u for ur meaningless post
