    Zimbabwe vs Pakistan | Tri-Series: 1st T20I | Harare | Jul 1, 2018 | Pakistan innings

    This should be a good game. Interesting to see what combination Pakistan goes with. Needless to say, Pakistan should really be winning this game as it's important to start off well in such a small series. The match is only a couple of hours away!

    Zimbabwe Squad: Cephas Zhuwao, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Wellington Masakadza, Brian Chari, Blessing Muzarabani, Solomon Mire, Tarisai Musakanda, Elton Chigumbura, Malcolm Waller, Peter Moor, Tendai Chisoro, Brandon Mavuta, Chris Mpofu, Ryan Burl, Ryan Murray, Kyle Jarvis.

    Pakistan Squad: Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Usman Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Sahibzada Farhan.

    I sure hope so too but knowing the team management I doubt it ... Suspecting them to go with the usual squad

    Hope that Harris and Shaheen will get a game or two in this tournament. We should (hopefully!) have 5 games so there is no reason why we can't try a few different combinations

    Lecture notes from Prof Hafeez's first over:

    1. play and miss the first ball to give the opposition hope
    2. top edge sweep the next ball for 6
    3. Back foot defensive shot straight to the fielder
    4. Play and miss to re-engage the bowler
    5. Straight foot defence straight to the fielder
    6. Go for another sweep but this time miss the ball and give the opposition hope again

    A true masterclass

    This is Hussain Talat guy is a proper batsmen who can rotate strike easily, but at this stage his power game is not good enough vs big teams and it will hurt us big time in T20s, He can hit big shots but may be he himself doesn't trust his power game enough, strike rotation is good but this only can't cut it for t20s specially on putches where 200 is Par and vs better team,,, Period.

    @Mamoon Talat isn't mediocre but he is strike rotator not dasher,,, which is must have quality for these T20 slog fests.

    What's up with this outfield?

    We either see those flat phattas or these dusty pitches with bad outfields, where ball just doesn't want to reach the boundary

    Fakhar is a type of player who needs considerable luck to get going, a lot of things have to go his way for him to get a good score, but you have to commend his mentality and desire to get on top of the bowling.

    We will see what he does in Tests and ODIs. I have no faith in our batsmen.

    Lol, three innings where Talat hasn’t scored and the knives are out. There’s no denying he has a couple of technical issues. But as we all know there’s no point pinnings our hopes on the domestic system to produce refined players. Talat’s issues need to be sorted out by a professional- something you won’t find at the domestic level in Pakistan.

    That is true, but once your learning curve is over, you are done. You cannot teach old dogs new tricks, and that is why people like Azhar and Shafiq are mediocre after nearly a decade at the top level.

    Talat is a look busy do nothing guy... im not writing him off but he's clearly playing the wrong format.. more suited to the longer version of the game I feel. Just need to play simple cricket really , always looks like he's trying too hard..
