    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 .


    you really can't beat the game. If you earn anything, it's minus taxes. If you buy anything it's plus taxes.

    Okay genius! Good luck for the series against England. Hopefully england destroy this team badly. They deserve this. Dropping the best test pacer is the way to go. Well done Mr. Mickey Arthur. So so disappointed!

    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.

    EXACTLY THIS. He is just a bowling machine which can bowl fast and bouce.

    Been carrying dead wood in the team for far too long. About time, we get rid of all the TTFs. Hope we dont get to see the likes of Hafeez and Akmal back in the team either

    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

    It does not take a genius to figure out that Wahab is not a test caliber bowler. Or ODI. Or t20.

    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.

    I completely agree with not selecting Wahab but when you select Rahat, that is trash even when compared to Wahab then it defeats the whole purpose.
