    Pak could have easily moved Hafeez to open with Zaman and included Haris Sohail in the middle order.

    Failed XI - even a kid could have picked 9 of those 11. Only selection points were -
    1. 2 of MoHa, Mian or Hari
    2. Ahmed or Hari (MoHa opens)
    3. 3rd pacer or Fahim

    3rd one depends on wicket, so can't tell.

    2nd one was always in favour of Ahmed after Azhar was "rested" & Ahmed won the MoS

    1st one was the only one where Sarfu & Micky could have shown some balls - they failed - dropped the best middle order of country, who happens to be the only lefti middle order & bowls a bit - for two veterans, who'll be liability in 19 months time.

    They are allowing these 2 opportunists to accumulate some cheap runs, to sell it when other factors won't be handy.

    Makes no sense to select Hafeez, Malik, Shehzad in the top 6. Having 4 spinners is overkill. Hope those three fail for Pakistan's sake.

    THOSE THREE will be playing for Pakistan. If someone pray for their failure they are indirectly praying for the failure of Pakistan. If one player, in the starting xi, fails to perform then it increases the pressure on our blue eyed boys. Now we don’t want them to fail, do we?
    This is why I pray for the success of each and every single individual in this Pakistan xi!

    The reason I'm against Hafeezs selection is because him and Malik do the same thing. Middle order batters who bowl off spin. A lot of our ODI cricket in the next 2 years is outside of Asia so we don't need both. Plus both are 35 so one of them had to go.

    Disappointed with Mickey,Sarfraz,and Inzi for not showing courage and dropping Hafeez.

    Should try to get Haris and Fahim in somehow. Sarfraz at no 6 is bad for the team, as he doesn't have the ability to clear boundary and get a quick 40. Fahim is the only one atm who can slog in the end.
    But UAE is the only place Hafeez can totally dominate on.

    I am aware of this fact that's why I said I hope and not pray. Those THREE succeeding will harm Pakistan in the long term and Pakistan can still win with those three failing. If anything, Shehzad and Hafeez tuk-tuking put pressure on the others. Malik is decent but struggles against pace. The next WC is in England where Malik has had epic failures, even in the CT.

    If Ahmad Shehzad is the only viable replacement for Azhar Ali ,who doesn't set world on fire either , then your talent pool is a non existent. Hafeez and Malik can't coexist. There isn't much to chose really between the two. Instead of imad wasim a proper batsman could have been played. Hafiz and Malik don't warrant a place on their batting alone. One can easily have them bowl 10-15 overs ,so no point in playing imad . He won't fetch you wickets instead play Haris Sohail who is a proper batsman and more likely to click .
    Oh I forgot Sarfi wouldn't be reading this !

    Instead of complaining about Hafeez and Malik, one should complain about Imad.

    Haris batting >>> Imad's batting
    Haris bowling = Imad's bowling


    Would have played

    Hafeez
    Fakhar
    Babar
    Haris
    Sarfraz
    Malik
    Fahim
    Shadab
    Rumman

    They have won FOUR of 21 ODIs this year. If their bowling attack isn't mediocre then I don't know what it is...

    The likes of Herath and D Perera were major reasons for their Tests success but they don't factor into the ODI discussion.

    Them tuck-tucking should not be equated as success! They are successful if and when they score good runs at a decent strike rate. That’s what I HOPE and pray.

    PPers will find faults with any lineup that the management picks. They were not going to make changes to the team that won the CT (flukey it may be, but still).

    Haris will eventually find a place in the playing XI. He is too good a batsman for Pakistani standards to be sitting on the bench for long.

    As expected.

    Hafeez, Malik and Imad are on my watch list. Their performance in this series should be heavily scrutinized. From my point of view they can play all 5 matches so that no more excuses from their side are left.

    In the long term only one of Malik and Hafeez can be carried along, while the hunt for a good all-rounder still carries on.

    Everyone (almost), has a go at Ahmed, which I find surprising. Angry young man did play well in T20 series and the way he batted actually suites ODI mode more than T20 - still he was good enough to win MoS. AND, he is holding a specialist position - Opener, where the back up is a rookie, who doesn't fit in the format. Fields well, bats well, talks well, takes picture well, trims his face well .... still so much animosity, it's almost like hate crime.

    In the mean time, most posters are over looking who are stealing the cheese - Hari guy should start to bowl more, so that he can compete with Imad in the XI; he won't bat at 4/5 for PAK before 2020.......

    Sarfraz doesn't have the guts to stand up to these seniors either. He can shout at the young players only. Both Hafeez and Malik will play in the 2019 World Cup. The successful CT has prolonged their careers.

    He won't - look at SRL bowling.

    Apart from the rookie Offie, no specialist spinner and no decent slow left arm part-timer. If any one batting at 4 is cunning enough to make stats, easily can finish 5 match with ~200 runs at <80 SR - which his lobby will compare with Javed's 69 at 4, made in 80s. PAK might lose match (s), but that'll be because of lack of hitters at 5-8, who couldn't win it "Larke Lenge" style.

    On top of that SRL will open with Dickwella & Taranga - 2 lefti, so Sarfraz will open with him & nostalgia will remind us what he could do 4 years back with his "old" action (to read the blank space within comma, change the font color from white - I have replicated the color of memory cell in Ul Haq's head).

    PAK is stuck with MoHa till 2023, and Sarfraz better pull his socks, otherwise he won't be tossing in WC.

    When Misbah and Azhar were captains, every bad decision was their fault. Now when Sarfraz is captain, every bad decision is Mickey's fault.

    He has proved that he is one of our best openers. I was under the wrong impression that we have plenty of options who can easily replace him. Fact is that he continues to dominate in domestic cricket and is also the top scorer in the PSL. If there are better options than him than they should step forward.

    He is young, fit, eager to do well (even if it is for personal reasons) and looks like a batsman when he plays well. He has the shots but needs a pat on his back and some inspirational words. He has an insecure personality and needs backing from the management and the fans which he hasn't had. People hate him far too much and he is obviously not oblivious to it, although he does try to pretend that it doesn't bother him.

    Shehzad and Fakhar should be our opening pair in all formats. If Azhar goes back to opening then Shehzad will have to sit out, Fakhar is essential to counter-balance Azhar's world class blocking.

    It's a good thing to stick with previous team combination who won us the Champions trophy. But haris sohail and imam ul haq should be given equal chances in coming matches.

    Also after humiliating defeat against Sri Lanka in 2 test matches we need to stick with winning combination.

    I believe if openers were not able to perform than Imam will be given a chance to showcase his skills and prove Inzamam chief selector of pakistan and mamu of Imam right.

    He should look to play majority of the 50 overs. If he can hold one end we have some freely playing batters.
    I would have liked to see Sahibzada Farhan with Fakhar and also Haris Sohail in the team. But the fact is the eleven is selected so need to back the team now.

    Don't confuse formats. Just because he can bat well with unlimited time, doesn't mean he is good at white-ball cricket.

    Defended them but I have also criticised them. I have very rarely seen you critizce Sarfraz for anything.

    Your blaming Mickey for our losses but when we win It's due to Sarfraz.

    Yes, I agree I have a Sarfaraz bias but it is only to counter the undue hate that he gets from certain quarters because of his city of origin

    Not sure how you came up with that conclusion because he's brilliant in limited overs cricket.

    Only issue is he can't carry on after scoring 50+.

    I should have added MoHa in my Fantasy league - because he'll bat at 4 & start bowling pies to SRL 1-2-3, all are lefti & probably stressed to score over 120 in 20 overs (that has been their strategy oblate); but decided to take the hit on my self ..... some sacrifice has to be some where!!!!

    I think with the recent Test humiliation they didn't want to take any risks and played the most experienced 11

    Haris will definitely get a go in this series. Hopefully Imam and Fahim get a game too

    Too many all rounders Imad Hafeez Shahdab Malik?
    Not selecting a full time spinner might be crucial and Shehzad is selected in the wrong format.
