    We invested in the wrong Umar. Had Amin got as many chances and preferential treatment as Akmal he would have had given a much better output.

    That's not my reasoning for selecting him. My point is if he is selected I won't complain as we have batsmen who have failed for years in the line up.

    Amin hardly had a fair run in a set position.

    I seriously doubt your cricketing knowledge. Just have a look at some of the greats of the game and their start in international circuit. If I'm not wrong Atapattu had like 6 ducks in his first 7 innings, based on that info alone as per your input he shouldn't even have played domestic cricket but thankfully people at the helm of selections look long-term rather than short term.

    Ofcourse if you are a favourite like Amin, domestic stats don't mean much. why have merit at all.

    The real question is, does Amin even deserve to get a place in first class team. Man is a proven failure.

    In 16 innings he showed no potential at all.

    16 innings no matter where on the batting XI is more than enough to show you have it to succeed.

    Babar Azam and Haris Sohail both took their chances at whatever position they debuted in.

    Not to mention 9 T20 innings.

    All that 16 inns is scattered everywhere in terms of batting position and series..

    He and hammad were being made the scapegoats for losing series after series and not enough wins across formats during the misbah era and the last 8 years since his test debut...

    he played 4 tests at the age of 20 with a debut in england and was never looked back to give a single chance till date..

    even though he continue to score runs as per the modern traits of the LOI he was again given scattering of chances with no chance in ODIs..

    fail in away tours to england, southafrica, new zealand and australia. drop and bring back asad shafiq, hafeez and myk has been the proven policy of the PCB against Amin and hammad..

    Haris sohail and Amin are the two left handers pakistan can rely on for the next 5 years and they should continue to give them more chances...not here and there

    Second highest run getter this season at QEA trophy considering he missed some games due to being part of Pakistan A T20 team vs New Zealand.

    Third highest run getter in the recent Pakistan A vs New Zealand A T20 series, all this considering he is not a T20 player.

    Mad how in 2010, he was destined by PP'ers to outshine Azhar Ali with ease but it was Azhar Ali with his gritty approach that led to him becoming a very important player in the test side.

    Shows technique or domestic records are irrelevant. Mental strength and ability to handle pressure come first before anything.


    Alexis Sanchez. Theo Walcott. Azhar Ali. Haris Sohail. Fawad Alam. Orochimaru.

    I don't think Amin featured in the recent Pakistan A series so doesn't look like he's on the selectors radar.

    I did find it strange how he was recalled to his weakest format, T20s, and played a dead rubber ODI in NZL before being dropped from the squad.

    Guys like Saad Ali, Saud Shakeel and Usman Salahuddin are ahead in the pecking order as far as young batsmen go.

    I tend to agree, the think tank in PCB is scared of long term investments. All PCB wants is short term yields rather than investing in something solid for future. This mentality is the difference between pre 2003 and post 2003 Pakistan cricket setup.

    Can someone please explain me why he has not succeeded even in domestic cricket?. I mean in first class cricket even Ravindra Jadeja has 3 triple centuries. Is Pakistan first class cricket that competitive?. Does he have massive technical flaws that we can’t see because it’s well hidden behind elegance ? Players get find out at this level, teams work over your weaknesses. Vinod Kambli had great start to his career than his inability to play bouncer was found out and he was finished. Same goes to Nasir Jamshed etc. Umar Amin is a curious case to me, can’t fathom why he couldn’t establish himself. My first impressions of him were that finally Pak has found next Anwar. Good for Pak and also for international cricket.

    Yes let's recall a player because of one fluke shot.

    If he was any good, he'd have a decent track record in domestic cricket.

    If he can't have decent stats in domestic, how the hell will he ever be successful in International cricket?

    Lol he will be worse than our sorry lot who are playing right now.

    Abid Ali, Saad Ali, Usman Salahuddin and Saud Shakeel are far superior.

    Pakistan has invested years in bums like shafiq. Get Amin in and reap the rewards in all formats.
    He has got a lot of chances and hasn't done jack.

    the only thing i can recall him doing was hitting 27 off 8 odd balls versus new zealand.

    Based on domestic records and their technique.

    Amin is a failure both in domestic and in international.

    amin is a failure, i agree.

    and shafiq has exactly those things you mentioned + intl. experience and he's still a failure.

    our domestic cricket is in shambles, there's no way those players you mentioned would do any better than the current lot... they'd probably do worse

    Shafiq is a poor investment. Plus Shafiq had a poor FC record too.

    you say that now after we know he's a failure.

    even the great @Mamoon was wrong about shafiq.

    years ago he was supposed to be the saviour of our batting line up.


    the same way you're hyping up salahuddin, saad ali etc, people used to hype up shafiq, azhar, babar, fakhar,


    no matter which players take the field, we'll always be an average team... this is just how pakistan cricket is and always will be.

    Haven't seem anything to suggest Amin would be much better than Shafiq. Like Shafiq, he looks good for a few shots, but doesn't score big consistently enough and is generally a very defensive and outdated player.

    Better young players coming up

    I have said time and time again that Haris Sohail or Usman Salahuddin should have been included when Misbah persisted with Shafiq.

    Both scored on much tougher pitches of North Punjab and had a superior domestic record than Shafiq.

    Shafiq is poor against the moving ball.

    Even Umar Akmal would have done better than him if persisted with.

    Not hyping Saad, Usman but just saying they are far superior to Umar Amin.

    and asim kamal and fawad alam should have been persisted with too and they weren't.

    we don't know what would have happened if haris and usman were given consistent runs.

    jeez, even imran nazir scored on a tough pitch against the great west indian bowlers of the 90s.

    we can't be so sure of anything.

    shafiq and azhar were averaging around 40 and 45 respectively when misbah and younis were around. they've just gone to shiiii!t since they've retired.

    who isn't poor against the moving ball?

    sure umar akmal may have done better but our team as a whole would be the same as it has always been.

    Thats not the right attitude.

    We are poor so we don't do anything?

    You have to select the best in the country which Shafiq isn't and never was. Same with Umar Amin.

    There are better players and they should be ahead in the pecking order. Hopefully working with international coaches will make them even better.

    This is the truth that people need to come to terms with. Some have, others still have to.

    No point in hyping up XYZ - we don't have the capability to produce elite batsmen like Kohli, Root, Smith, Williamson etc. Even our best batsmen are merely good by international standards. The likes of Babar etc. score one half-century and we do bhangra for weeks.

    We need to accept that we are a mid-table team now. Our competition is Sri Lanka, West Indies and Bangladesh but that does not deter our fans from running their mouths against the likes of India, England, South Africa etc.

    selecting different players isn't going to do anything.

    revamping the domestic structure is what needs to be done.

    sure we can select the top performers now, and they might even perform once or twice... but eventually they'll get found out, lose form, fans will get stop backing them and we'll be back to square one.

    exactly, we'll occasionally surprise the top teams but just because we do ..... that suddenly doesn't make us a top team which majority of the fans tend to think.

    Revamping domestic structure won't happen in a day. Its a process that will take time.

    For now you have to select the best players in the country rather than ignoring everything that we will remain poor.

    Shan Masood has shown domestic and A team form do matter.

    And yes start and continue working on improving the domestic structure etc.

    it most likely won't ever happen, there's too much corruption for it to happen.

    even when it does happen, it'll be far too late.

    new generation is losing interest in cricket and is more focused on football, epl etc.

    and i agree with you, the best performers should be given a chance but again, pakistan cricket as a whole will always be the same... the only way it can change is if the people in charge make drastic changes

    He massacred Shaheen and Rauf. Quality shots

    I know it's easy to say in hindsight, but by judging his ability to play on the backfoot one can say he would have outperformed some seniors in SA tests.

    international and domestic cricket are different ball games.

    anyhow, it was a breathe of fresh air watching him handle the new ball which was swinging.

    hopefully he's worked on his game and can knock the selectors' door.

    He has always looked good, but he also proved to be a big bottler. Nevertheless, there is no harm in trying him after the World Cup after Malik and Hafeez (probably) bid farewell. Haris' position is another potential vacancy - he is simply not reliable because of his chronic fitness woes.
