    Should Iftikhar Ahmed be given another chance?

    They were showing the list for most 1st-class runs(last two years) in Pakistan during the match. Iftikhar was on it and averaged around 47. Can also bowl off-spin. He only got one match and then was dropped.
    Should he be recalled for the next series?

    Unless he improves his bowling/batting, NO!

    Fawad deserves a go, as does Usman Salahuddin.

    I'd rather have Usman and Haris. Think he's just unlucky that in Tests we had Younus-Misbah partnership that no one was going to dislodge.

    His First Class stats are alright but he looked out of place in the Oval match. Also, it seems doubtful that he's 26. Imad should get a look before Ifthikar; better FC stats and he has already proven himself in LOI cricket.

    OK so if we're deciding purely on the basis of that list, I guess you'd rather have Aamer Sajjad in the XI than play Haris?

    Even 1985 indicates 2-3 years fudging given the time he started playing professional Cricket under pcb.

    You can't be hundred percent sure about his age and he is not thaat old like people are making him out to be 45-50 years. Ifti also adds dynamism to a one-paced lineup.

    I actually don't think that he is 45-50 years old, rather me thinks it's in between 35-40; that's 10 years lower than what people are making & 10 years higher than what his certificate is saying.

    too old , he lack reflexes of a batsman , i wonder he would ever be able to connect a shot less than 2 feet behind the batting stumps against a 140 kph plus bowler.

    Actually PCB had liason with a Cricket Statistics website which was previously free when last year in September I took this Screenshot. They had partnership. Now that website is not free anymore.

    i think he might have a role to play in transition. youth for the sake of it (and I know you are not advocating that) doesnt work for me. For instance, if it were a choice of having imam ul haq or imran butt in the team, I would rather take my chances with Ifti.

    If we look at the bench, considering that sharjeel and shahzeb might be looking at lengthy time away from the game, the guys who are racking up the runs were awais zia, iftikhar etc.
    I am actually heartened that Sahibzada Farhan literally came from nowhere to be the story of the Pakistan cup, but these other guys (Imran Butt, Imam ul Haq) they play very very poor limited over cricket.

    He's as hack-y as they come. He's the biggest hack I've ever seen. Gosh. Rather have Owais Zia in his place. Bring in young talent like Sahibzada Farhan and groom him. Get over these TTF's. If you MUST bring back a TTF, bring back Khurram Manzoor.

    The OP seems to be discussing his first-class record, so it would seem that this thread is about Test cricket.

    Are you talking about Tests @Rayyman?

    He was debuted at 34-35 & it can't be that people selecting/playing him didn't know that. It indicates 3 things -
    1. Grouping & nepotism
    2. Overage isn't a factor for PAK, when it comes to selection
    3. No future vision - players debuted at 30+ age indicates Captain, Selectors, Manager/Coach are serving their own cause, that's living by day.

    For PAK, if I were in charge, I'll never debut any fast bowler after official 21, WK after 23, batsman after 24 & spinner after 25 - be it for a rebirth of Wasim, Latif, Anwar or Saqline.

    Are you talking about Tests @Rayyman?
    Yes, I was referring to Tests, but now that you mention it, his List A performances are great and he might deserve a chance in ODIs too.

    I was just adressing his wish.


    Iftikhar is an inferior Misbah clone. His game against pace is quite poor and he doesn't fancy taking a decent stride against pace plus his short range is very limited. He thrives against spin, has strong forearm and shoulders and hits big against spinners.

    I thought Iftikhar plays at a fast strike rate so he would be considered a better option than Tuk Turk Usman.

    He is too poor against pace, regardless of his age.

    In ODI, captains are forced to ration their bowlers as there is a quota of 20% max for each bowler. Also, often he bats after the new ball pair just had finished their fastest (opening) spell. In Test, even a bot like Holder will bring Joshep & Gabriel whenever Ifti comes to bat & he'll keep entire field in front of batsman open, asking his bowlers not to bowl anything on Ifti's half to play on front foot - he won't survive more than 30 minutes, & won't trouble scorers much. And, he is not in the right age group to adjust his game now or shift his body balance to play on back foot.

    He carries on his good form with 75 off 69 balls today. Didn't bowl too badly either as he took 1-36 from 7 overs. Is he really that bad that he doesn't deserve another chance? I wasn't impressed by him when he played for Pakistan but maybe he has improved.

    I don't get to watch the PSL as the channel isn't available on Virgin so I haven't seen him in that before so I have no idea how good or bad his technique etc is. I will have to trust others judgements on this then.

    I am not entirely sure he is international quality but do feel he wasn't given a proper chance at international level. He deserved to have an extended run before being discarded for good.

    I just don't understand the policy of giving players a single test cap to prove themselves. We did the same with Mohammed Ayub Dogar and Bazid Khan, who, unlike Iftikhar Ahmad, actually looked very promising. Players need to be given a chance to establish themselves property being discarded.
