    Should Shaheen Shah Afridi be fast tracked into the T20I team?

    He is young , tall and pretty quick as well. As amir is unfit for the series , it is good chance for pakistani selectors to test shaheen afridi. May be for the last t20 which is going to be played in lahore(?).


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    No first he should prove himself in domestic t20s and BPL then only we can access him whether he is ready for international cricket or not

    No doubt he is a special bowler but Pak must wait for him to develop peroperly

    He should be fast tracked into the test squad first. There he can learn the art of bowling long spells.

    Get him a PSL contract first. If he shows promise there, then give him a T20 spot. I am not in favour of leaving him to play domestic cricket, our domestic cricket ruins players, it does not improve them.

    Odis are the best place to to introduce new bowlers unless they are specialists

    Things can go wrong very quickly for any bowler in t20s, especially an 18 year old

    So u want this promising player to be handed over to Inzamams, Azhar Mahmood and people like Shehzad and Shoaib Malik in the team?
    This is not the 90s, Imran Khan, Miandad are no more there. People like Akmals [now Babbar Azam], Shoaib Malik and Shehzad play in this team.
    Really sad that a figure like Younis Khan is also not there, what kind of grooming he'll get one can remember with Amir in 2010, after Younis Khan was sidelined from Test squad. The dreadful events after spotfixing allegations pushed Pakistan back some years. All the shady characters of that squad like Shoaib Malik is still in the team, another Akmal [Babar Azam] as well and Salman Butt, Asif, original Akmals are still around the same NCA waiting to get picked.
    Inzamam played a huge role then also to do the 'revolt' against Younis captaincy in what transpired in his home. I don't expect any good from this person now selector. He is there to manage his favorites and a mafia .

    PSL is unfortunately a better place for him to be mentored with the kind of resources available, absent in Quaid Azam Trophy and other departmental teams.

    His initial grooming should be of a Test format bowler or another wasted underperformer like Amir will be inducted who averages 80+ runs per innings.

    We have to wait to see him in the under 19 World Cup, it will give a good indication of his talent.
