    Always ends up that way.
    I hope, for the sake of our cricket, it doesn't happen. Mickey seems to have good chemistry with the management and players and someone who doesn't sugarcoat. Top man for the job, specially for Pakistan.

    Malik, practically as a matter of fact, trains extremely well by all accounts and is one of the fittest athletes to have represented Pakistan from the start of his career, so not sure why you'd think he should be guilty of the same metric...

    I am not complaining nor am I defending Wahab. All I'm saying is public bashing of players to this degree by the head coach is not justifiable no matter what anyone says. He could've easily just said the exact same points listed in OP to Wahab personally instead of making it public. All this does is increase chances of a divide to happen between the coach and the players. No one likes being humiliated publicly, and that's exactly what Mickey did to Wahab. The coach has power in the team, and he should merely use it, not abuse it.

    How is it publicly humiliating when it is the truth? Mickey is right. Wahab has not won us a game in 2 years. Its not as a personal attack, its a professional attack as regards to his performance which has been insufficient for International cricket as a player.

    It can be publicly humiliating even if it's the truth. Just because something is true doesn't mean it can't be used to publicly humiliate someone.

    What I have seen of Wahab is that he always releases the pressure (eg Asia cup 2016,Asia cup 2012,CT 2017,England series) which has been created by Amir and co.He is a bit like Ishant.May work in Tests but should never play odi,T20.

    Wahab is a keeper in tests . On fast pitches or when the ball is reversing he is almost unplayable . He needs to be kept away from the LOI sides. Kinda harsh from Mickey but I really can't blame him . Wahab is a nice guy but his place in LOI's team is not justifiable .

    After Wahab Riaz's performance against India in the Champions Trophy, almost everyone was humiliating him for that performance, the guy still ended up making a Crore rupees for being a part of the winning squad. This was not public humiliation rather than an assessment. Where he also menitoned it was a difficult decision to drop Riaz, a player who has been playing for a while needs to bring more to the table.

    I hope this is the end of Wahab. I never really liked him as a cricketer. The fact that he does not work hard at his game (of which I was unaware) is one more reason not to.

    Wahab has bowled well in patches as a test bowler, but it has not ever resulted in a performance like the one Abbas gave in the Lords Test. Biggest reason for our victory and central to England's batting demise. Mickey and Inzamam stand vindicated in this decision

    Micky has been proven right about Wahab. Remember, Wahab is 32 - not young for a fast bowler. It was the right time to ditch him because his performances had been falling - most likely due to the work ethic that was mentioned.

    Come on Micky!

    Akmals sorted.
    Wahab sorted.
    Shezad on the periphery - hopefully, he won't play again.
    Hafeez dropped from tests. Now drop him from ODIs please.
    Malik - drop him and the revolution is complete.

    Afridi also retired.

    The team would finally be free of poisonous prima donnas. Having a team of young, vibrant, talented, HARD WORKING players is what we want.

    Did he perform extraordinary good in the domestic after being dropped? Or are we just following the policy of dropping players and than selecting them again on random intervals?

    Mickey the useless coach forgot that wahab single handedly made us win a test in the 4th innings against England in uae when nothing was happening. Mickey needs to ask for 2 proper spinners in uae if he wants to win otherwise stop crying these crocodile tears.

    I assume you're talking about FC cricket.

    Well, after the SL Tests last year, he played 5 matches in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, taking 9 wickets @ 40.

    This season, he was busy with CPL for most of the domestic season (so far) but played one QEA match before this series. Figures were 0/32 and 1/11.

    Wahab Should not play Tests anymore. He can bowl a good spell once in 2 or 3 games but that shouldn't be the reason he is picked to play for Pakistan. He hasn't played any FC game and has been playing T20s for the last couple of months. Not sure why he is back in the team.

    Its seems he is not in the plan for worldcup 2019 which is why he is not selected for aus series.He is overlooked on some one like abbas and husnain which must be dishearten for him and i see no motivation for him to push for pakistan after worldcup. he is 33 already should look for leagues around the world to earn some money for himself

    I am not a fan of Wahab Riaz and I felt he lived on the legacy of the Watson spell for too long and ironically did his bowling immense damage but I got to say that he is bowling as well as he has done for a long while. The question then is- can he bowl this quick and this well for the full 10 overs.

    Yeah that is the big question. He was averaging close 150 KPH today, but that was only 4 overs and sort of a semi final. Lasting even 7 overs with those speeda and control is challenging.

    He certainly seems to have a bee in his bonnet. But if he bowls anything like he is and over 10 overs, then he is not out of the consideration.

    I would definately take him over Shinwari. At least, Riaz can also hold the bat if required.

    His struggles with ODIs is because of two new balls which he will still have to face unless we are going with 4 seamers where he can be kept aside til 25th over. He is effective when ball is reversing but as a third seamer he will have to ball within first 15 overs more often than not and that is where he leaks runs like no tomorrow.

    He is good enough to play in T20s and Tests but in ODIs only as a 4th seamer and coming onto ball only after 20-25 overs old when a ball is 10-15 overs old (As their are two new balls) as with his wrist condition he cant control the new ball.

    His struggles with ODIs is because of two new balls which he will still have to face unless we are going with 4 seamers where he can be kept aside til 25th over. He is effective when ball is reversing but as a third seamer he will have to ball within first 15 overs more often than not and that is where he leaks runs like no tomorrow.

    He is good enough to play in T20s and Tests but in ODIs only as a 4th seamer and coming onto ball only after 20-25 overs old when a ball is 10-15 overs old (As their are two new balls) as with his wrist condition he cant control the new ball.
    His problem has more been his fitness. He's lost a lot of weight and his movement through the crease is now much more fluid.

    As always T20s are enough to get someone into the national side . Have posters forgotten the amount of times he has embarrassed us?
