    "Undoubtedly India have great group of batsmen but if we bowl according to our plans then we only need 10 good balls"

    "When you go into the final, you want your best bowler to be fit; if he has any doubt, then he will come to us and let us know"

    "We will definitely go with Amir if he is fully fit but if he is not then we have to move on"

    "The reason bowlers are giving me credit is because I am friendly with them and have also been a bowler myself so I understand their problems"

    I swear Pakistanis need to stop hyping the Ind vs Pak games, Indians treat it normally, play the game, win the game and go gloat about it afterwards.

    Didn't get the Amir part, first he says we haven't decided the final combo and he wasn't sure if Amir or Raees plays and then he goes on to say Amir will definatley play if fully fit

    My team for the final :

    Fakkar
    Azhar
    Babar
    Hafeez
    Haris
    Sarfaraz
    Malik
    Faheem
    Amir/Rumman
    Junaid
    Hassan

    In this tournament, changing XI, has worked very well for us; we have 3 imminent changes to make. Imad & Shadab swap them with Haris & Faheem; Amir/Rumman any one can play..If pitch supports spinners then Hafeez, malik and Azhar can bowl (and they are good spinners).

    Imad is still a good spin bowler but he definitely will be under pressure and may overdo few things after that thrashing by India.

    Expecting Hafeez, Malik, Faheem, Haris and Azhar to complete 20-28 overs
    And 22-30 overs to be completed by our pacers..


    Amir is needed more so for his batting than his bowling...Not sure how Rumman bats.
    Wicket is a road and small boundaries.. even mishits will go for 6, & with fresh drop in pitch, nature of pitch does not change in second innings, which we have seen in era of 90s and 2000s; so winning and losing toss will not be uch difference as long as team has ability.

    Unlike 1st game, India will be cautious this time and their openers will play slower than the first time. For me biggest worry is our fielding, which makes us dispirited. You can not afford to drop anyone in the field.

    Rohit
    Dhawan
    Virat
    are the only key batsman India have
    UV : was jittery in first game as well
    MS : for last few years he has started playing slowly
    Pandya/Jadhav -- these are hits and miss players..




    Last 10 overs.. slow bowls outside off, what Malinga did to them in 2014 T20 WC...Indian batsman are momentum players.. if you feed them easy boundaries.. they become more dangerous. attacking them with bouncers/slower ones/yorkers and good length will trouble them a lot..They thrash monotonous bowling lengths.

    What do you mean not a word from Indians? Didn't Bumrah and Kohli issue statements? Haven't Bhajji, Saurav and Liquid Form spewing filth since the time it was confirmed that India will play final????

    We mostly have a decent to brilliant bowling attack. It is the batting that is always our major concern when we lose a few quick wickets. Things are looking up after Wahab left the team. As much as I like Faheem can only see him playing at the expense of Imad that may not be a bad move. Have to keep the Junaid, Amir, Shadab and Hasan bowling combo.

    From what I heard, he said that Amir only bowled today but if he turns around and says he is not feeling well, they wont risk him

    Azhar has been very good but like Waqar he's making the mistake of not identifying domestic bowlers personally. Can't rely on Inzi who's a chump.

    dropping Rumman for Amir would a big blunder by Azhar Mehmood and management

    Rumman has performed better than Amir

    amir cannot take wickets and cannot bowl good death overs and is also injury prone

    Rumman can take wickets and can also bowl very good death overs and is not injury prone

    cannot risk amir departing in the middle of the match and not complete his quota as well

    @Chief Destroyer You've got solid point there. Ideally bowling coach should be very much involved into selection of new bowlers and also identifying upcoming ones. Azhar should also keep an eye on U19 boys.
