    Pakistan vs World XI | 3rd T20I | Gaddafi Stadium | 15 Sep, 2017 | Pre-Match Thread

    Series tied 1-1, what changes would you make to the XI?

    I'd make at least 3, with Shehzad dropped (but unlikely since he made ANOTHER selfish innings today, but got a score - and that score keeps him in the team), get Fahim back in there and if fit, Hasan should play. I won't comment on who to drop of the bowlers as it's unfair to drop some players after a game, like Usman.

    And Sarfraz should either open with Fakhar, or bat in only if we're 60-3 or something like that. Don't need him coming in when we're 130-3 as that's when the big hitting is needed.

    Just some of my thoughts as we head into the decider.

    won't happen but...

    Fakhar
    Sarfraz
    Babar
    Malik
    Amin
    Fahim
    Imad
    Shadab
    Nawaz
    Hasan
    Rumman

    Sarfraz needs to open or drop himself from the playing XI. He's an excellent strike rotater who will pair perfectly with Fakhar.

    Shehzad has to go. sarfarz to open as the pitch is pretty slow he can easily score if he opens without pressure.

    Also Fahim should bat at 5


    only fighters rise up from the dust..

    I'm glad the World XI won.

    Game 3 isn't a dead rubber and should lead to some exciting cricket.

    Also, is Amir coming back for this game?

    I think Saj mentioned it before the series started.

    I think Mohammad Amir just had a kid so I don't think he'll be playing.

    Mohammad Amir is not playing the 3rd T20I. It would have been nice for us to win yesterday so we could give others chances tomorrow but it is what it is so below is the team I would play:

    1) Fakhar Zaman
    2) Ahmed Shehzad - want him dropped but he has cemented his place now
    3) Babar Azam
    4) Shoaib Malik
    5) Sarfraz Ahmed (C) (WK)
    6) Imad Wasim
    7) Mohammad Nawaz
    8) Shadab Khan
    9) Sohail Khan
    10 Hasan Ali if he is fit in place of Usman Khan, who only bowled 1 over which is unfair on him
    11) Rumman Raees

    So you will play two of the worst bowlers from previous match and drop someone who bowled just one over

    He deserves to play but if he only bowled one over it shows what Sarfraz etc thinks of him and that they must not rate him highly enough. It's harsh but it shows he is too inexperienced. He should still be in the squad for next series vs Sri Lanka

    Fakhar
    Shehzad (Ideally it should be Sahibzada Farhan or some other hack)
    Babar
    Sarfraz
    Malik
    Imad
    Yamin
    Faheem
    Shadab
    Hasan
    Amir

    Batting:
    This team has genuine batting till No.9 and Hasan and Amir can also bat. Sarfraz should always come earlier than Malik as he is not a lower order batsman.

    Bowling:
    This team has 2 specialist bowlers in Hasan and Amir, 2 bowling all rounders in Imad and Shadab, 2 batting all rounders in Yamin and Faheem and 2 part timers in Malik and Fakhar. Total 8 bowling options, 4 pacers and 4 spinners. Should be a very balanced attack and lot of options for skipper.

    Fielding:
    Average age of this team is 26 which shows it is a pretty young team and fielding levels, running between wickets and fitness should be very high of this team.

    I hope they drop Shahzad but that won't happen. It makes my blood boil seeing that wuss open the innings for Pakistan.

    I have a feeling that all the anti-shahzad group in this forum are between 17-24 age group , who are just jealous of his good looks and popularity among young fans

    Or perhaps they are jealous of his 104 T20I strike-rate against non-minnows?

    Sarfraz should really open that would make an ideal combination. But as always Pak think tank doesn't see what the fans see until its too late.
