    Of course one of the best. Best is Babar .

    Only one apart from Babar who's comfortable against pacers and can hit cricketing shots against them.

    Kami too is up there.

    I'd put Babar, Kamran, Fakhar and even maybe Sharjeel ahead of Hafeez. Malik, Iftikhar and Haris would also possibly sneak ahead. I'd still definitely take him to the World Cup and the eight batsmen i'd take would be Babar, Sharjeel, Kamran, Hafeez, Iftikhar, Asif, Fakhar and Malik.

    He gets a lot of criticism because he's sometimes exposed in big international competitions, but that is because Pakistan has poor quality batsmen at that level. He is still one of Pakistan's top players in limited over games. Averages don't count as much as match winning ability, and he has the ability to dominate bowlers.

    Your lack of cricketing knowledge is alarming.

    Hafeez's struggles in swinging and bouncing conditions are known to everyone, you just can't hide behind his CT Final innings to prove your point.

    His "good" cameos in the WC ended up with him getting dismissed by the likes of Williamson and Finch.

    Babar's technique is outstanding, but you are right, he is an anomaly. He gets criticism from home fans for not slogging the ball more, but the best hitters in the game have a sound technique as well. Esay to slag off Hafeez, and it's true he is better in low bounce conditions, but I would still like to know who are the alternatives?

    Reality is any one Who has a little ounce of Potential is untested they are not getting opportunities the way they should So In that Sense no one Really is Better Alternative
    Our Bowling is so so good with Shaheen,Naseem,Rauf,Amir and Imad,Shadab maybe Umer but Batting Still depends on Babar alone

    I don't care about his record since the CT Final. His overall record suggests that he is a very good player in subcontinent conditions, capable of dominating attacks when in touch, but below average when it comes to handle quality pace in swinging conditions.

    I actually wanted him to be out of the squad for the WT20, but keeping a look at our current batsmen and their mediocrity, I would say that Hafeez would walk into this team just after Babar for the tournament. He remains a better option than Malik who is going to be a walking wicket in Australia.

    I don't think hafeez is lacking in overseas condition he just doesn't seem to have self belief which is probably fostered by his bowling action getting picked on repeatedly on other shores

    He has past his peak but he has been an overall very good batsmen for Pakistan.

    He will open the batting in my Pakistan's best ever XI(since 2000s) along with Azhar Ali in test cricket.

    Heís starting to look like Viv in 1991 towards the end of his career , you still see shades of greatness and nothing but respect from the opposition bowlers clearly admiring the great batsman for all his world conquering innings over the years - but like other elite batsmen of his calibre in eras before him , be they Bradman, Sobers, Viv, Lara, and Sachin - all these legends had to quit the game one day realising that age is no longer on their side.

    Hafeez might still get 100s but I reckon heís past his best and we may not see those double centuries and big 150s especially against top class fast bowling that we took for granted when Hafeez was at his peak.

    Hafeez doesn't fit in the top-5 of any T20 team anymore. He struggles against good pace bowling and even with spin gets stuck on the crease being unable to rotate the strike. At best, he's a good off-spinner with some infrequent ability with the bat at this point of his career. He spent all of 2019 finding it difficult to bat wherever he played. For Pakistan, in the CPL, Vitality Blast and now this year's PSL. He's becoming a burden on batting line-ups with his inability to accelerate at any point.

    LQ were at 32/1 at the end of the powerplay today chasing 188. With Hafeez at 13 off 17 balls.

    Babar is really good, but can he play the sort of innings that Hafeez played today? Personally, I think Hafeez is our best LOI batsman. This guy can go from 20 off 20 and end up with a score of 70 odd off 45-50 balls.

    The t20 era has coincided with our worst decade as a cricket team. Therefore you wont find much quality and depth here. In fact, it is hard to make a full xi with guys who truly deserve to be there.

    These are the guys who I believe leave a semblance of a claim to be in this xi.


    Kamran Akmal
    Sharjeel khan
    Babar Azam
    Umar Akmal
    Mohammad Hafeez captain
    Shahid Afridi
    Imad Wasim
    Abdul Razzaq
    Mohammad Amir
    Umar Gul
    Saeed ajmal

    This really looks like a terrible side with a dearth of batsmen, but i would still expect them to challenge the best because of Babar's consistency and the bowling attack.

    Definitely not ! Anybody who averages 20 in 5 t20 world cups with one 50 and a SR of 105 deserves no mention in any best 11.

    His current form is brilliant but he has lost to many matches for Pakistan and choked in to many pressure situations.

    Replace Imad Wasim with Shoaib Malik.

    Shoaib > Imad in Fielding
    Shoaib > Imad in Batting
    Imad > Shoaib in Bowling.

    Babar Azam has been carrying Pakistan's batsman for the last few years. You can't say Hafeez is best when cricketing legends add Babar to top 5 list of batsman in the world

    Best batsman for Pak in the shorter formats. Vastly under-rated but a true match winner. Was highly instrumental in Pak winning their only ICC trophy / major tournament in the last decade.

    Babar I must say is not the match winner Hafeez is and has been.

    On any given day, I will put my $$$ on Hafeez's chances of playing a match winning knock over that by Babar.

    You're not wrong.

    Malik is obviously much better bat than Imad Wasm, but overall, the equation is still crap.

    He won't make an impact on batting just like Imad.

    The worry I have is that he could decline at any moment. He is aged 40 and this is Pakistan 40. He is in great form and should not be dropped but we need to be wary he could suffer a massive decline at some point.

    If only he could have figured out his game 6,7 years ago.
    Really looks a million dollars right now when everyone expected him to decline. Who knows, may continue like this till the 2023 world cup. Rofl
    Anyway, I see a great coach in him once he finally hangs in the towel.

    Uh no.

    I'm loving Hafeez's purple patch, believe me. However I have watched his career pretty much from the beggining and I know what this man is like.

    Throughout his career, he has had extreme highs and extreme lows. There was a time where Hafeez was even making enormous test scores. However the unfortunate fact remains that either side of these purple patches, there are a whole heap of very poor performances. And when Hafeez is on a low, he is so poor that even his strongest supporters are pulling their hair out. Take the World Cup 2019 - Hafeez looked silky smooth as always but his mode of dismissal was just atrocious in every innings - usually the slog sweep. That too having consumed a whole load of balls for virtually no runs. That version of Hafeez has unfortunatley cost us as many games, if not more, than this version of Hafeez has won us.

    It's an unfortunate fact because he is supremely talented and an absolute delight to watch in full flow. I even think Pakistan is making a massive error sending him back right now when, in this sort of form, we could do with him in our test team given that we don't have Barbar.

    His knock was good but he had 4 dropped catches. Should've been out on 45. Would've been a good score even then but I doubt our team would've reached 163.
