    Umar Akmal should replace Ahmed Shehzad in the T20I squad

    His attitude is poor and he has had a fall out with mickey and his fitness levels (although he is working very hard right now) have been below par but in spite of all these issues he is still 10x the T20 batsman Shehzad is

    Zaman
    Babar
    Umar
    Malik
    Sarfraz
    Imad
    Fahim
    Shadab

    This looks a much better lineup that the current one

    Zaman should be the aggressor looking to score as many as he can in the first 5 overs with Babar playing the anchor role as he does at number 3 looking to bat through the 20 overs.

    Umar at 3 because you need another power hitter at this position and with Malik and Sarfraz as consolidators at 4 and 5 in case the top order falls cheaply

    Imad, Fahim and Shadab to provide the finishing touches

    Umar has apologized for his behavior and he is working hard on his fitness. he deserves another opportunity. The door should not be closed on him.

    No, Shehzad should be replaced by someone who is performing well in domestic cricket

    Why replace one overrated player with attitude problems with another one? There are so many better players who are performing in domestic cricket.

    Although Mickey is professinal enough, I doubt we will see snappy Umer back anytime soon. His last bit of antics took it a bit over the line.

    Why fix something that isn't broken! Shehzad and Babar had a good partnership in which Babar was the aggressor and shehzad was the strike rotator. Yes, Shehzad has his limitations but he is not the only one. What we need is to give Shehzad the sense of security in the team so that he can perform up to his full potential.
    I remember people once hailed him as the second coming of Virat Kohli, earlier in his career. So why not give him a second chance!

    No.

    Also UA didn't apologise- he still maintains his claims against Mickey. He only apologised for the way he made his complaint (ie. running to the media).

    Forget umar akmal he's finished. He's fallen in the long list of failed Pakistani cricketers.

    I think Umar Amin would be a better replacement. I know he hasn't performed in the past but I have a feeling that this guy will be late bloomer like misbah, hafeez, dilshan etc.

    It is beyond my understanding that posters (and fans) are still considering the possibility of having the Akmals return.

    No, he's not doing well mentally, is out of shape physically and he can't bat anymore either. There's a lot of hard work to be done on his end if a comeback is to be even considered. Akmal at this stages comes across as the sort of bloke who would struggle to get into his domestic team, never mind international. What a damn waste.


    Ah, so this is what it feels like

    Adnan Akmal should replace Sarfraz. Sarfraz only has a career due to Adnan's injury, #graveinjustice

    Absolutely, we should arrange a chopper have him picked up from his house and straight to the ground for batting. The only batsmen available in pakistan rest are garbage.

    Nope. We should give chance to a batter who is performing in domestic cricket.

    I agree. However, Umar Akmal needs to prove his fitness first and then make up with Mickey Arthur & everyone else involved before he is even considered. There is no doubt that as a batsman he can play devastating innings but with the current situation regarding him he can't come into the team right now. But he is definitely a better T20 batsman than Shehzad

    Lol, Akmal was a complete failure in WT20 and PSL2. On what basis is he better than Shehzad?

    People pretend that Akmal is not on the team due to off-field issues but completely forget the fact that he does not make the team on merit. When was the last time he won a match with his batting?

    Yep, best idea, bring the bigger clown for the smaller one (who has at least scored some runs in last two games which could be asking too much for UA)...Ahmed Shehzad can be easily replaced by allowing Sarfraz to open with Fakkhar and bring in a middle order hitter, not sure who though!
