    Pakistan has the opportunity to end the streak in the next year's World Cup

    I'm creating this thread from the bottom of my heart, if anyone is offended please feel free to message me and I will edit the post as needed, this thread is not being created to upset anyone, I respect all posters on this forum.

    Years and Years of being made fun of and ridiculed.

    Years and Years of being laughed at and being considers inferior in more ways than one.

    Years and Years of being considered the "beta"

    Yes, friends I'm talking about India's mindset of Pakistan.

    A lot of people were quite easily humbled last year after Pakistan's victory in the CT Final, each and every nation's goal is to be respected.

    Next year again India fights to keep it's streak alive with the World Cup being played in June coincidentally on the very same Sunday as the CT Final in 2017, coincidence you say? can't be...

    The World Cup bought next year is on Father's day.

    It's almost as if ICC purposely set India vs Pak on June, 16 2019, as if to say heh Pakistan you will never move forward as a country, we will not let you move forward, it's time for them/us to get revenge and put you back to where you belong.

    As silly as it sounds I will be honest I'm very saddened by, it's like someone is out to get us.

    With last year's victory our team moral has been high, our future is looking very bright, since that final Pakistani's have had the mindset of us being able to compete toe to toe with the best of them, we are the best team on our day.

    Big time feel obviously even though it's a year away, the baap beta thing is not fun and games for Pakistani's, I can assure you it surely isn't for me.

    Next year's result will be Huge for Pakistan history and legacy, it has the ability to humble a lot of people who have been at us since our creation, the hate certainly will not ever go away but like I said it will be a step in the right direction....a major step.

    Let me make one thing perfectly clear, this thread is not being created to start a war on the baap/beta saying, this thread is created for the sole purpose of Pakistan moving on as a country and as a nation, the saying being put to rest completely.

    This is somewhat of a serious topic, I hope everyone can respect each other and have a genuine conversation.

    Thoughts brothers?

    A lot of Pakistanis were humble in victory. Most don't bring it up and a few insecure ones disregard it as a fluke. Some of us though like to troll the Indian fans who get out of line time and again. The CT final has given bragging rights to Pakistan, and next year's WC game will be another nail in the coffin for India IMO.

    I am an Indian and I would say why should you be humble. We have been rubbing it in your faces for years and this time you got an opportunity to return the favor back. Come on, this is professional sport, not poem recital.We need some spice and some rivalry here.That makes the game exciting.
    On that note, your boys need to learn how to chase 250 and more before our next time. Because I bet Kohli wont repeat the blunder to bat second .

    Both teams have an even chance when they walk out to the Manchester ground. There is no longer this absurd gap between both sides like there used to be till 2016. The odds are 50-50 on June 16th!

    A lot depends on the batting.

    The bowling and fielding are up there. The batsmen have to deliver, and no pretty 20s and 30s at a 65-70% SR. Aggressive running, big shots and target the weaker bowlers. A positive is that, the tail is a lot smaller than compared to earlier. Even Amir is no muck with the bat.

    The bowling side is set backed by excellent fielding. The only issue is the spinners wont find it easy to keep the Indian batsmen quiet. That said if Amir has one of his days and the form Hasan is in, they should be handful enough for India.

    Our bowling won't let your lot go too far. 250 looks difficult for India against our bowling attack 2

    There have been many pakistani teams which have tonked us in non world cup games, but remember even a team as bad as ind in 1996 defeated your atg side.
    World cup pressure is 10◊ the pressure of these confederation cups.

    You were batting FIRST in the Final.And on today's pattas, you cant always stop a team under 250.We scored over 300 in the first match in CT itself and even Hassan got tonked.To beat us consistently, you need to find good batsmen who can chase well under pressure.

    Looks like you forgot what happened to the 1st encounter between India vs Pakistan in Champions Trophy when Kohli & co took on your Young guys Hasan Ali, Shadab and Imad and scored 319. Oh well! Your memory is only imprinted with only CT FInal and you are conviniently ingoring the thrashing you had in that first match with the same 'Young Guns'.

    how can a team consisting of shehzad,younis,misbah,kamran,umer,shafiq better than current team.4 of them are not ODI batsmen and 2 are akmals 😢
    that team was depending heavily on spin trio of ajmal-hafeez-afridi.

    Did they get whitewashed by any team during their rein? They hold off famed Indian 2011 batting to 260 odd in India whereas your current boys got smoked for 320.

    That team had experience, but a lot of bottlers. Hafees, Misbah, Afridi, Younis and Shafiq in an ODI team is basically committing suicide. Add to that Shehzad, who had SR issues and an inconsistent Kamran Akmal. The bowling attack was decent, since all three of Hafeez, Ajmal and Afridi were in good form. The only reason Pakistan did well in the 2011WC was because the conditions were tailor made for our team.

    This team lacks in experience, but more than makes up for it in x-factor and belligerence.

    Too much is being made of the whitewash in NZ. Yes Pakistan was poor, but NZ is very strong at home. England barely managed to beat them 3-2 , although I believe the gulf in quality between England and NZ is quite big.

    To hell with all these threads, we all have been too many times to get fooled from false hope anymore, There is as much chance if Pak beating India on 16 june next WC as I have of becoming next US President, which mean zilch, so save yourself from another emotional disappointment, and pray we win our other matches and avoid India in knock outs that's our best chance, it's curse which Wil remain forever,,, whether you believe it or not,,

The only reason Pakistan did well in the 2011WC was because the conditions were tailor made for our team.

    This team lacks in experience, but more than makes up for it in x-factor and belligerence.

    Too much is being made of the whitewash in NZ. Yes Pakistan was poor, but NZ is very strong at home. England barely managed to beat them 3-2 , although I believe the gulf in quality between England and NZ is quite big.
    What makes you think your current lot are not bottlers? Dude, they still cant chase 250 in this age of super pattas.See how they struggled against SL in CT.Look how your top order batted in NZ.Atleast Misbah had the hitting power better than your current lot.

    My Squad for WC

    Fakhar
    Sharjeel / Malik
    Babar
    Sarfaraz
    Imad
    Haris Sohail
    Shadab
    Faheem
    Amir
    Hassan
    Junaid

    Malik is far better opener than anyone available right now. And can partner with Fakhar to give a stable start. If anyone feels that he can be Dale Steyn bunny then, others can be too..
    Opening slot is the only place where I can see Malik in the team, and if he can get us beyond first 10 overs, then its job done

    Misbah had better hitting power than Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf or even the current Mohammad Hafeez? I guess you did not watch that team much. The current lot is better than the class of 2011, and they will do fine chasing anything above 250 with a bit of experience

    I've already mentioned NZ in NZ was an abberation. The same players proceeded to smash the NZ attack for two 180+ scores in the T20s. The team of 2008-2016 would have succumbed to below par scores and praying for Ajmal, Hafeez and Afridi to bail them out

    Dude, if winning T20s could win you ODIs then Windies would have been the world champions now.And that approach is exaclty your problem.Your batsmen has only two modes while under pressure.Tuk-tuking or going berserk.Second approach could win you T20s but not ODIs.And yes, Misbah was a much better hitter than your current crop.He smoked Bhajji 4 sixes an over in 2007 and also did some late over hitting in 2011 and even 2015 too.
    And its not only about NZ series.Check your recent series results against non-minnows in the last two years.Lost to Australia (1-4), lost to England(1-4),lost to Nz early in 2016 for 0-2.

    'Dude', I refuse to take you seriously if examples of Misbah's power-hitting are a rubbish spinner getting bashed for a few sixes, and 'also did some late over hitting in 2011 and 2015 '. Stop making posts just for the sake of it. No Pakistan fan here says our batting is very good, its adequate for the bowling attack.

    Also, England 2016 and Australia 2017 were very different teams, under Azhar Ali FGS. Where's Fakhar, Shadab, Faheem, even Hasan was hardly five months into international cricket. We beat South Africa and England in the CT, which are two very strong teams. India was always going to get blown away after what we did to England, didn't matter what form they were in. We've had two ODI series since the CT. One, we whitewashed Sri Lanka while we ended up getting whitewashed ourselves in New Zealand. Not a big enough sample size to label the team as rubbish. The coming few months has Pakistan face up to New Zealand, Australia and South Africa in consecutive ODI series. Then they travel to England right before the WC. We will know where this team really stands then

    I quoted Misbah's performances against us in Worldcups while chasing.Sorry for not mentioning it specifically.
    You have admitted that your batting is not good enough but got wrong in the assesment that your bowling is good enough.No bowling lineup is good enough in this age of superpattas.Even the likes of Mitchell Starc and Billy Stanlake are getting creamed.In tis era, ODIs are batsmen's game and you just dont have that strength in yours to beat ours consistantly.
    If you analyze our change of fortunes from 2003, you could see its mostly due to the strong middle order batsmen.Yuvi,Dhoni,Raina in particular .Folks who run harder and can hit even harder when the chance arrives and more importantly stable under pressure.Now kohli is carrying that mantle single handedly.
    One-off wins in tournaments doesnt make anyone worldbeaters.We had beaten Aussies in our worst 90's but those were rare and few and we all knew who was superior and more likely to win back then.
    After CT, you have won against a hapless Lankan team whom even our list A teams would beat 9 out of 10 times.And then got whitewashed against a NZ team by 5-0. Five matches, Bhaijan.Five on a trot.It is a very high amount and your top order batting performance was the worst in them.
    So in nut shell, there is no proof that your batsmen can do it while chasing against non-minnow teams yet and I dont see that quality in any of your current batsmen.

    Its always good to take a player who has better records overseas, rather than selecting some oldie like Hafeez or untested Nawaz(who has never played an innings of more than 20 balls)
    And Imad is very good against non-Asian teams

    Hasan Ali merits a place in any team right now, and I hope it remain same for next year.
    Shaheen Afridi is too young, did n't get a chance, and I dont like an idea of going with 3 left arm pacer, of almost same pace, same qualities.

    As for Imad Wasim, I dont know why people are against him. He is far better batsman than Nawaz(check stats). And bowling wise, he is more economical, always bowled in difficult situations and his wickets are almost all top batsmen of opposition team. He adds that dart bowling variety to already varied bowling attack, which is good.The only area where he lost it, is his fitness because of recent injuries.

    Nawaz played the same 7/8 number in batting as Imad, and if you exclude that one innings of 53 against Ireland, then he has 107 runs in 9 innings.

    I WILL TAKE IMAD WASIM over Hafeez and Nawaz any day.

    You can't be serious with this^

    Shaheen is a glorified trundler with Afridi name tag carrying him so far. ( young so potential to develop for sure)

    Shinwari is an absolute hit and miss player and is way behind in bowling brains that Hassan posseses to set a batsman up and outhink him. Not to mention Hassan is faster and skiddy with a huge reputation as well now being the no 1 bowler for some time

    Shinwari is more talented. He can swing the ball miles and take multiple wickets in an over unlike Amir. Give Shaheen MORE chances and he will prove to better than Hasan Ali.

    You have admitted that your batting is not good enough but got wrong in the assesment that your bowling is good enough.No bowling lineup is good enough in this age of superpattas.Even the likes of Mitchell Starc and Billy Stanlake are getting creamed.In tis era, ODIs are batsmen's game and you just dont have that strength in yours to beat ours consistantly.
    If you analyze our change of fortunes from 2003, you could see its mostly due to the strong middle order batsmen.Yuvi,Dhoni,Raina in particular .Folks who run harder and can hit even harder when the chance arrives and more importantly stable under pressure.Now kohli is carrying that mantle single handedly.
    One-off wins in tournaments doesnt make anyone worldbeaters.We had beaten Aussies in our worst 90's but those were rare and few and we all knew who was superior and more likely to win back then.
    After CT, you have won against a hapless Lankan team whom even our list A teams would beat 9 out of 10 times.And then got whitewashed against a NZ team by 5-0. Five matches, Bhaijan.Five on a trot.It is a very high amount and your top order batting performance was the worst in them.
    So in nut shell, there is no proof that your batsmen can do it while chasing against non-minnow teams yet and I dont see that quality in any of your current batsmen.
    You are thinking up way too many excuses to not rate this team. As I said, the true worth of this ODI team will show in the coming few months when they take on Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and England in a short span of time. I believe these young guys will only get better and I won't be surprised if we manage a few series wins

    How many times for Pakistan?Just once I reckon.He is a good bowler and deserves more chances too but please don’t invent false stats to prove your point.

    1)Shaheen Afridi has proved nothing so far to be included next year in the XI.
    2)How many spinners will you play in England?You have Shadab,Nawaz and Imad.
    3)Babar Azam as a wicketkeeper.Seriously?
    4)You dropped last years Champions Trophy MOTS.The next WC will also be in England around the same time period.
    5)Imad Wasim at 6 .What a batting lineup.
    6)Babar should be at 3,Asif should be at 6.
    7)You want Amir dropped at the expense of Shinwari.Ok.

    Didn't India drop an ODI to Sri Lanka at home recently? Also managed to lose a T20 to Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy I'm sure. You're telling me your list A teams are better than the national teams that played in those games?

    I dont rate anybody unless they produce actual results against non-minnows.That is why I dont even rate hacks like Pant who otherwise get great rep from Indian fans.And my comment is against your claim that your current batsmen are not bottlers for which I see no evidence to backup.

    Fair enough. I mean I consider India bottlers, given how they have choked in major ICC tournament matches in the past four years now. So I guess its a bit like that for you in terms of our batting

    The sample size for these guys is very small. Lets see if they can change perceptions in the coming few months by performing against major opposition

    Ending the streak would merely soothe their ego. Winning the World Cup is what we call an achievement.


    If there is a better batsman than Sachin then he hasnít arrived yet: Viv Richards

    Will be interesting to see how Pakistani supporters respond.

    I'm certain most Indians will choose winning the world Cup over losing to Pakistan.

    Lool. I hope you are not serious. Babar as wicket keeper, imad ,Nawaz, no amir or Hasan Ali. I hope you put this team up by mistake but then again you want Asif to open in all formats akmal brothers in test team including Shan ,Asif, butt etc.

    Anyone who says the streak is not a real fan. The streak is only good for bragging rights
