    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.

    Selecting the incorrect team and not improving first class cricket are reasons as to why Pakistan won't improve.

    I agree.

    But wanting to select a failure of a batsman because another failure got an extended run.

    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.

    And it seems like you don't have any knowledge of Pakistani cricket and the way it's run.

    He’s been treated unfairly for years. Play him instead of Hafeez and Pakistan’s ODI team will become a lot better

    Domestic records don’t really mean much to some players. They can have bad domestic records but if they have proper technique and ability then they should be backed.

    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

    Do people watch cricket ? This guy looks clueless Everytime I have seen him bat bar one time. He should not be back until he consistently scores big in domestic. For people complaining about akmal and hafeez, they were our best batsman at some point in their career. This guy is not half the player they are .

    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.

    In that case Khurram Manzoor deserves more chances than Amin.

    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.
