    As a Test cricketer, especially as a captain you have to change the way you bat according to the match situation, pitch, conditions etc. Unfortunately Sarfaraz seems to know only one way to bat.

    I appreciate he's an attacking batsman and will take risks, but he needs to knuckle down and take more responsibility with the bat.

    The occasional flashy 50 is not good enough.
    He's not even making those flashy 50's though.

    Poor shot today. No need to play that shot especially with so much inexperience down the order.

    It was important that Malik and Sarfaraz stayed out there till around the 35th to 40th over.

    This is why Hafeez is needed at number 6; having safraz later down the order is only asking for trouble. He needs to go!

    The mode of dismissals are the problem - rarely is he out to a good delivery. More often than not he gets himself out to a shot that lacks much thought.

    Awful shot from Sarfraz. He has been rusty so should've given himself a chance to settle in instead he goes for a six. Really started the collapse.

    He is batting at no. 5 with an attitude of a no. 10.
    Needs to man up and let go of his ego. Needs to rub his nose on the ground and learn to do the basics right again.
    Captaincy seems to have given him too much leverage he can get away with. Without any fear of accounting for, he will only keep falling.

    He took lots of responsibility today to be honest - tried to up the run rate, just after set No. 3 got out - so that it becomes easier for the next batsmen. IND cheated here a bit, as they replaced Pandeya with a better fielder, who somehow came into the path of that shot, otherwise it was destined for a SIX.

    Manish Pandey is a brilliant fielder but not better than Pandya. A fit Pandya would have caught that ball.

    Does the fact that he is captain matter? From what I can tell, he would still play as a specialist WK.

    Just curious, if say Fakhar Zaman was captain and Sarfraz had these batting performances, who would we replace him with?

    Mickey Arthur on Sarfraz:

    "We're certainly not worried about Sarfaraz Ahmed's position in the batting lineup, he's playing well. It was just about taking responsibility today. We sort of batted outside our roles today which was disappointing. Imam's role is not to be running down at B Kumar in the 3rd over, it's not Saifi's role to be hitting over the top and getting caught out there. We've got X factor guys whose role it is to do that, if Fakhar or Asif get out that way, it's OK because that's what they need to do. But the other four batsmen need to take responsibility, I just thought we were soft, 158 dots out of 258 balls faced is not good enough"

    Specalist keeper? Hes batting at number 5 in ODIs and 6 in test matches (For arguement sake you could say in tests put an all rounder in front of him at number 6) but facts are hes coming out to bat always in a hurry, plays a few fancy shots, runs down the wicket etc.. plays a daft shot and his 10/15 minute inns is over.

    Its pathetic his performances dont warrant a place in side full stop captain or no captain.

    Why is no one addressing the elephant in the room?

    Sarfraz's batting has been deplorable of late. Is it wise to continue with him as a specialist WK captain?

    He could be batting at #11. My question was even if he wasn't captain, what would be the plan to replace him?

    I don't follow Domestic Cricket close enough to know of any backup WKs.

    Thing is Sarfraz is also hardly batting, he bats about in half the games he plays. So when he is batting, it's often crisis situation.

    You could bat him up the order, and I think he'll start performing more, but then you deprive the specialist bats opportunities which is worse. And given the new ball rule, it's important to have batters up the order than can handle the new ball, and to play your better bats up the order. I'm not sure Sarfraz qualifies as in the top 4 best batsmen anymore.

    And of course the issue is he's not a person who can score quick runs lower down the order either.

    I think Sarfraz needs to bat 4 or 5. 4 if Malik is the alternative I don't think Malik is good enough for 4 and does better lower down, I'd like Malik to pretty much come in against the spinners, not pace, playing at 6 ideally. And Sarfraz needs to come at the same position every game, not as a floater or promoting others when he feels like it. Every game at he should be coming in at no.5.

    Leave the late order hitting to Asif, Malik and Faheem. They're better at it.

    He should bat either at 2 down or go below Shadab and even Faheem/Nawaz the way he is performing. He is neglecting his batting big time, he has played some extraordinary test innings in UAE and some pretty good ODI knocks as well before becoming the captain and was in the test xi of 2016.

    He should realize the importance of him performing especially where he bats in all the formats.

    Any sort of replacement keeper/batsmen etc.. dont seem to be looked or even groomed right now, its almost as though hes pressure from selection and the team has to put up with poor performances.

    I dont want much domestic cricket either in pakistan nowadays so not sure what options there are.

    At times you have to change your approach and adjust your strokes.

    Unfortunately Sarfaraz these days only knows one way and that is a high-risk approach, which relies heavily on the sweep againt spinners and extravagant shots against the pacers.

    Everytime hes comes to crease you know what to expect a few fancy shots and out, he tries to dominate the bowling without ever trying to get set 1st and doesnt give impression hes going to plsy any sort of long decent inns. Needs to be dropped.

    You can't expect a rubbish batsmen to step up lol. He's got the Umar Akmal and Sohaib Maqsood syndrome. Look good for 20/30 runs and then play an irresponsible shot. As a leader that is unacceptable.

    He is trying to be ultra aggressive now a days. His role is to milk singles in the middle overs without taking the risk and this mode suits him more rather than playing big shots.

    He won the CT. Leave him alone.

    I mean he didn't score a huge century (Fakhar), or have good supporting roles (Hadeez & Babar), or a great bowling performance (Ali), but he patted the guys on the back a few times.

    Not sure what you're getting at. The criticism isn't for Pakistan, it's Sarfraz who doesn't have a place in the team based on merit in any format.

    I was actually absent for three weeks after Pakistan got a reality check in the Asia Cup and failed to win the first Test. If I had to rub it in, that was the time to be active, wasnít it?

    I came back the day we won the second Test. There is plenty of material that you can hit me with, but please donít invent stuff that did not happen.

    In that case you still need to learn more cricket, who in the right mind would want Sarfaraz to come out in the last 4 overs of a t20 game when you have so many wickets in hand you needs sloggers out there in the last few overs not someone to build the innings

    When did I say Sarfaraz should have come on to the crease in the 16th over?He could have easily come out to bat right after Farhan's dimissal.Keep the excuses coming!

    1 Indians and Bangladeshis
    2 Pseudo Pakistanis
    3 Misbah fans
    4 Individuals with big ego

    The reasons for their hate is obvious from the type they belong to.

    They will find flaws in everything Sarfraz does some even said in one thread that he should see the mirror and some call him midget and totla. Personal attacks by them to Sarfraz and his fans are a norm. Its best to ignore them unless they get personal multiple times.

    So today he kept well, captaincy was top notch when Aus were on top but they still found a way to bash him. So why waste time replying to non sense and rubbish? There are some who do constructive criticism and so should we as priority should always be Pakistani team over any individual.

    So you think you're on a high-horse and then box out certain people because you think you're right? Hypocrisy is fun.

    The problem with Sarfraz is he doesn't do anything. He doesn't score run and he's not even a good captain. If you don't do anything, why would you get support?

    Not sure why people are whining. The plan for the T20I team has been patently obvious, and that's how it should be. The batting order is somewhat fluid. Hafeez and Malik are always going to be batting ahead of Sarfaraz for obvious reasons. In every game of this series, the second wicket fell in the 14th over. Who in their right mind wants Sarfaraz coming in at that point and stalling the innings? Each time, the likes of Asif Ali and Faheem Ashraf have been preferred so that they have the chance to maximise the scoring. Each of Asif, Faheem, Shadab, Hasan and Imad is probably a better boundary boundary hitter than Sarfaraz so I would much rather have one of these guys batting at that point instead of Sarfaraz.

    I thought this is an example of unselfishness, but it looks like the keyboard warriors have other ideas. They would rather than he comes in, makes 20 off 17, and then they can whine about how he stalled the innings instead.

    He is doing completely fine.

    The last time he was seriously required with the bat, he made 94 and 81.

    But no, we love to whine.

    At least wait till the ODIs against NZ. Our current form dictates we are likely to lose those, so you all can have a blast then.

    @SarfiBabarHaris thinks his unconditional, blind love for Sarfraz is the most objective thing in this universe.

    And people who do not share his romanticism are "Sarfraz haters".

    His holy cow cannot be criticized, a non-performing captain averaging in the 20s for more than a year, and barely winning. But still, his love and the holy cow needs to be loved.

    Sorry bruh, it doesn't work like that. Your love has blinded you from seeing things objectively.

    For starters, sack him from ODIs/Tests, and make him the T20 captain. If you're objective and do not blindly love, you will agree.

    Where were you when Sarf scored 2 x 80 plus scores in the 2nd test...

    All of a sudden you open a dormant thread just to slag him off (previous post before your comment was on 22 Sep?)

    The thread has been bumped on the premise of him 'hiding' in T20Is. Do you agree with the sentiment?

    From my observation, no, I don't think he's 'hiding' in the T20s.

    I don't really believe that the success in T20s is strictly tied to his captaincy, we just have the bowlers who know how to trap the opposition, and slow/low pitches also help us in batting+bowling.

    He's not a great T20 bat either, can't hit.

    But, he's not hiding from anything.

    Regardless, people think his presence is making us win in T20s, so I'm ready to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    And he can be retained as the T20 captain only.

    Its obvious from your posts and threads after threads that you are still hurt that why Sarfraz has performed much better as a captain than your beloved Misbah who couldn't do jack even with a far better team. Apnay ap sai jhoot bol rahy ho ya mujh sai? Should i tag you in all the non sense threads you made just to downplay Pakistan, Sarfraz and the young team under him?

    Ya sack him from odis and tests and bring 45 year old uncle Misbah back!

    Dude, what's your obsession with Misbah? He's retired, nowhere to be seen.

    Calm down.

    And respond to my comment. Why do you get so defensive and protective when Sarfraz is validly criticized?

    He's a non-performing captain for years now. So, why defend blindly?

    He is the best Pakistan captain in last 10 years or so easily for me. Do you know what captaincy means?

    I dont defend him when he is validly criticize as i said in one of the above posts that haters who criticize his face, voice, english, accent and education need no mention and belongs to the types i mentioned above.

    Yeah for 'years' right, bhaijaan he just became the test and odi captain last year. In your blind hate you forgot simple math.

    And you're going to conveniently ignore one objective, simple fact: he has NOT performed for more than year, since the time he became the captain.

    What's so wrong about admitting it?

    Yes, you can go ahead and look at the stats yourself.

    We've lost to SL out of all in Tests, at home. Let Aus draw a Test. Lost consecutive 7 ODIs so far against the top 5 sides.

    What do you call a poor show?

    Sure, you can keep him in T20s. But how do you want him in ODIs/Tests with a straight face?

    No but according to Mr. Hawkye he was validly criticized today and in your blind love for Sarfraz you wrote all this invalid points.

    Defying logic is your hobby.

    What do you call someone who scores one time in one year?

    Answer: A person averaging in 20s for extended period of time. AKA Sarfraz.

    You jump on other players who perform once in a blue moon, yet you're here defending Sarfraz for scoring ONCE? Have you even looked at his average in the last 1 year?

    For me and any other Pakistani (not pseduo Pakistanis) Sarfraz leading us to Champions Trophy win with a number 8 team that too in final against arch rivals India will forever hold great value than few bilateral odi series lose.

    Fluke or no fluke it doesnt matter.

    I know it made you sad as it didnt fit your agenda but he is here to stay till world cup and then we will asess his performance.

    Regarding tests he has a captaincy record of 3 wins , 3 loses and 1 draw and currently is the highest averaging wicket keeper batsman in the world with 10+ innings and is a game changer with SR of 70+.

    You said hasn't performed for a year but in his last test he has two fifties (almost hundreds), in his 2nd last ODI he has a 44, last three times he batted in T20s he has scores of 38* (180 SR) 28 (150 SR). He cannot go back and change his scores from a year ago, but he has good scores in the last little while.

    Now we all know who is talking with facts and who is running mouth for the sake of it.

    You'd jump at every other player who averages SO POOR for an extended time. And will not care about their once in a blue moon performances.

    No 7 in tests

    No 5 in odis

    Dont look ,like a poor show to me as your dramatic posts are making him out to be.

    And that too all with a very young team which is in transition phase. Unlike SL who are also in transition we have done very well.

    Rankings are relative and if he defeated minnows we would not have higher rankings in 2 of the formats.

    The fact that you think people (almost everyone here) cricitizing Sarfraz are "pseudo Pakistanis" -- show what kind of logic and train of though you use to debate here, and to defend your heroes.

    No use - you will not see the bigger picture objectively.

    No use - you will not see the bigger picture objectively.
    Were you happy or sad when Pak won the CT AND credited the win to Sarfaraz?

    Haha, what a stupid question. Every win is good.

    You're here long enough to remember that I was a huge Sarfraz supporter. Pull up my threads and posts blindly supporting Sarfraz.

    I used to attack others just like you two are doing here. Blindly. If anyone criticized Sarf.

    But then I saw the reality. His level as a batsman is nowhere good enough, apart from the purple patch he had.

    And his leadership is poor.
