    Less is more. Too much cricket leads to saturation and you won't enjoy it.

    Not always. Can't improve as a team if you only play two test series every year. Our poor performance in NZ is partly due to having not played international Cricket in six months or something.

    When are we playing South Africa and Australia this year?

    This is pathetic even in the 90s we played close to 40 odis.
    The A tours have become literally non-existent, which were alaunchpad for many domestic players to show their worth.
    Najam Sethi and PCB has really brought the odi game down just to protect their people in the board and the team. Board is being criminally negligent.

    With BCCI's influence and PCB's incompetency, thats pretty much expected.

    This is correct

    18 ODIs plus couple against Scotland and Ireland. It's good enough

    Pakistan should ideally play 12 test Matches and around 25 OD every year.

    I am talking off both one days and tests. We are not that great at either to be honest with you.

    Here is the Tour of Zimbabwe, so after it the lovers of Akmal brothers, Hafeez, Malik, Ahmed Shahzad & Wahab Riaz will start advocating them that they have played well against Zimbabwe. Thats what our judging standard is.

    Very poor planning. The World Cup is next year and we are playing so few ODI's. We need to find our best 11

    No such thing as too much cricket any more. If the players aren't playing for Pakistan, they are just playing in some league. Just look at what happened in the 2 months "off" leading up to the NZ tour

    The best X1 is already there in Inzi/coach and seletors heads and its a team full of TTFs, dont expect any changes to the side.

    With the current players we have it makes sense we playing less, it will give Malik, Hafeez and Azhar less opportunities to perform badly. I think once these guys retire from ODI hopefully after the World Cup then I think we should schedule more matches.
