    Pathetic bowlers and as always squad selected from Omar Associates, PIA, karachi and Pakistan cricket club.

    Only support them because of Sarfraz who I think should change his team now. Young pacers need to play under him as he is the one who will get the best out of them. QG administration is using Sarfraz now and his sharafat.

    Same, but honestly don't think I will get behind them for PSL 3.

    Reaching the two finals has been a curse. Worst of both worlds- lost the finals but they still had some of the last picks in the draft. Should have been smarter and traded picks in the drafts. That obviously doesn't excuse some of their terrible picks.

    I say this as a big supporter of Sarfaraz: some terribly embarrassing picks. Who exactly are they planning on bowling?

    They will be heavily reliant on their platinum players- both in terms of performances as well as guidance.

    Saving grace is Saud Shakeel.

    Happy Saad will get a chance- strikes me as a grafter so he will definitely make the most of the opportunity (even if this is his weaker format).

    Sarfaraz will get the most out of this squad but I am not optimistic.

    The Quetta squad always gets criticized here before the tournament.

    They then end up dominating most of the tournament. Only PSL side to have chased multiple 200+ scores.

    They can easily win the tournament if Sarfraz is provided with just decent fast bowlers. The guy can lead mediocre teams to being favs.

    Nawaz and Hassan are not even in top 5 spinners of Pakistan but they have done pretty well under Sarfraz. Problem is Anwar and the likes are trash. Waja woh jo i described in my first post.

    Even if he is not willing to spend much, they could still select promising young local players instead of TTFs.

    A player from platinum category will receive a minimum of 140k $ but some players will recieve more upto 200k $. Watson obviously wont receive a penny more than 140k $ bcz he is a finished and would have remained unsold had Quetta not picked him. That's why Quetta choosed him instead of say Imran Tahir or Bravo which obviously would have costed them more.....But for me Money isn't the real deal here, Bcz they have selected pathetic players like Rahat Ali and Asad Shafiq in Gold Category(no other will be willing to have them even in supplementary list). The problem here seems that Nadeem Omar is adamant to select players who have played for his teams in domestic cricket and majority of local players are those which is frustrating. Having Asad Shafiq in a high profile T20 team is unbearable and the fact is they released player like Luke Wright but kept him.

    The squad looks weak once again but Sarfraz's captaincy and tactical nous is a leveller. Their foreign players tend to shore up their batting too.

    He may be talented but absolutely does not deserve selection over others like Umair Yousuf or Zeeshan Malik.

    Weak squad, but something I wrote twice in last 2 years. Actually, T20 is so short that couple of players can carry a decent bunch to above expectation, particularly if they have a good Captain. But, I guess after 2 years, PSL has settled by now, so with that bowling line up, this year they should struggle. Amin should have left this team for Multan I guess, this Pindi guy is going to get rough treatment once again.

    I don't think you have a choice, especially when you are retained. The surprising thing is that QG let Ahmad Shahzad go who despite his poor international run had pretty decent two seasons of PSL.

    Players can easily change clubs through conversation - not necessarily we hear everything. Amin could have requested QG to release him, which comes with a bit risk (going unsold in draft), but one has to take such calls for career. He is in his form of life and can make PAK opener's spot permanent through a big PSL - that chance he might not get under Sarfraz & Moin. They let Ahmed go and kept Anwar, Asad, Nawaz - on top of that, in this draft their local picks are Saud, Rameez, Saad, Hamza, Azam ...one should be smart enough to understand their preference.

    I think he has the support of Sarfraz. Saw a recent interview where Sarfraz praised and said that youngsters like him should be persisted. Pretty sure he will open in our next t20 international series and for QG in PSL too. I am not his fan due to his careless and lazy attitude plus his technical and mental weakness but wish him luck! Lets see if we see a new Umar Amin under Sarfraz.

    Sarfraz himself might start to come at 7 ........

    Ideally, their XI should be

    1. Amin
    2.^Watson
    3. ^Rossoue
    4. ^KP
    5. Sarfraz*+
    6. ^Mahmudullah
    7. Nawaz
    8. Anwar Ali
    9. e~Hasan Khan
    10. Rahat
    11. Hamza

    Now, No. 2, 3 & 4 are fixed, so Asad's only spot is opener. They can drop Mahmudullah and play B'waite, that opens one pacers spot (drop Rahat/Hamza) and open with Asad and put Watson at 5 (Sarfraz to 6) OR, can drop e~Hasan for e~Saud (or e~Azam, who knows!!!), because Nawaz & Hasan in same XI doesn't make any sense, Mahmudullah can bowl offie, and put him at open/No. 3, drooping Watto at 5......... again Sarfeaz at 6/7 ...

    BUT, I don't see both Amin & Asad playing in same XI, so take your pick - Asad or Amin.

    My XI would be

    Roussow
    Saud/Amin
    KP
    Saad Ali
    Sarfraz
    Watson
    Braithwaite
    Nawaz
    Hassan Khan
    Anwar
    Rahat

    Bowling is extremely weak, all rounders are there best hope with bowl. Also Sarfraz captaincy will be the key. Batting isn't bad actually, KP and Roussow are match winners on there day. There's enough batters there to bat around them. Hoping Saud and Saad get games.

    Not expecting much from this line up,but if couple of key players step up and Sarfraz leads well they could surprise again. But I think this year they will be caught out. That bowling attack isn't good enough.

    I reserve my judgment on the selection of Azam Khan. I’ve seen people going ballistic on the selection of Imam ul haq before he even made into the starting xi of Pakistan team. Maybe Azam is talented or maybe he is not. Only time will tell.

    He can hit the ball a long way. It's more the fact he is shaped like a bowling ball.

    From what I have heard Moin's son can smash the ball out of the park. Not sure though if the giant can do that against int level bowling.

    Find it hard to support a t20 team with Asad Shafiq and Rahat Ali in it. I am also think Anwar Ali is past his best could get phainty. Selection of Moin Khan's son is just plain rubbish.

    I'll be hoping they lose every match.

    Sarfaraz making huge blunders supporting shafique and Anwar, pathetic LOI players, lets see if this bias seeps into the national side.

    Their only hope is for Nawaz to have a good season with the ball and for Rashid Khan to blow everyone away, will be heavily reliant on KP.

    These are Sarfraz's close friends from what I know:

    1. Babar Azam
    2. Asad Shafiq
    3. Wahab Riaz
    4. Azhar Ali
    5. Anwar Ali
    6. Mohammad Nawaz

    Babar makes the national team on merit and other than that no one from them has seep in the National side due to his 'bias'. You guys should know more about Sarfraz how he functions. I am still waiting for tose posters who said Nawaz will play against SL as he is friend of Sarfraz.

    If Azhar fail in NZ ODIs and is persisted With, things will start to look dodgy with him especially if Shazbinda and Amin have good PSL and perform at domestic level. We will have to wait and see on the others.

    Failing in 1 series should not be the criteria of omission. Azhar was our second best batsman in CT. If we find someone like Sharjeel than Azhar should make way. Till then he is better than the likes of Imam and Amin who are similar but technically weak plus Azhar is a true team player and Sarfraz loves such players. Mickey too!

    Yes but if he fails with innings like 10 off 20/25 balls with him struggling to rotate strike and time the ball which is what has happened in the past. Calls for him to be dropped will be right.

    I am a big fan of Azhar, but at 32 I don't see him improving on his weakness in LO game better for him to concentrate on tests. He could lose his core strengths as a batsmen by playing ODIs.

    Team players are important but they need to be a fit for that format. Azhar might have done well in a few games but that can only carry you so far.

    They won't play for Pakistan National t20 team.

    Here in PSL they were the combine pick of management and I have gave the reasons few times in above post. Asad will play in the starting matches as he is a Gold pick but will be replaced if he fails in 3 matches.

    Sarfraz captaincy record even with weak teams is excellent because he takes winning too seriously even for his club sides and thats why being called as a born leader by likes of Rashid Latif and Azam Khan and those who know him since childhood. I dont think he will compromise winning for friendship. But he doesn't have the choices. Saad and Saud arent t20 players either.

    My point is who whould you like to see Asad or Saud? Also there are many better players then shafiq in t20s. Forget about his winning and being born as a leader i am not talking about that. He is a good leader which i don't deny.

    Nawaz played against the World XI when Yamin deserved the spot. Good on him for not selecting the pseudo-allrounder Nawaz in one T20. I am sure he wanted to but Mickey talked some sense into him.

    Don't remember the last time we played 4 fast bowlers in Asia. I like Yamin and its unfortunate he missed out but playing 4 fast bowlers is not feasible here. Lastly, Sarfraz in a recent interview has said that we are trying to groom Yamin as we see him and Fahim as our fast bowling allrounders in England next year. You might see Yamin in NZ too (thats my guess).

    Sarfraz doesn't deserve to captain this crap side. His captaincy has led them to ridiculous victories. Time to give the Quetta gladiators to a youngster and make Sarf captain of Karachi Kings, a team who he truly deserves to lead.

    Dhoni always had the strongest side in Chennai Superkings, over here our captain gets the crappiest team which he then leads to the finals each time.

    Imad Wasim gets to captain the strongest side in the tournament what a joke man..

    Also time to remove Misbah who is a cricketing fossil and United need to find a new dynamic leadership to groom for the future.
