    When are we releasing these old TTFs? Enough of Wahab and Irfan. And no to Malik and Hafeez as well please. Stick with youngsters come what may.

    I dont believe we have fans who back him.
    Worst run-up ,action and release.
    Only good for robbing some youngsters of valuable international experience.

    Good stuff in the BPL, but I hope we never have to see him play for Pakistan again

    What exactly went bad for his bowling in Tests - only he can explain but he should have made much more out of his Test career than he ended up doing.

    I think there was some issue between 2010-2012 when he hardly played. I don’t know if it was the issue with the sun newspaper having a clip of him wearing the jacket of the fixer or simply the fact that the coach at the time, waqar didn’t like his one dimensional bowling but he lost out in crucial years.

    Anyway is and always was one dimensional which is a shame. Whole hearted player though.

    Wahab Riaz speaking at the PZ media session

    "Whoever plays cricket goes through ups and downs. I don't get scared, I take everything as a challenge. Until I have life in me and the junoon to play for Pakistan, I will make comebacks and perform when I get a chance.

    "It's good to be the leading wicket-taker, but it brings pressure too. It gives you responsibility as well. I will try to work even harder and take more wickets and take my team win."

    Please concentrate on franchise T20 leagues all around the world and leave Pakistan cricket alone and take Amir with you.

    He and Mohammad sami are quiet a mystery. Both of them used to clock 145 to 150k effortlessly something we rave about now from any bowler. But never had the smarts to use it effectively.

    This PCB mafia favorite Wahab Riaz has cost Usman Shinwari 1 and Junaid Khan 2 World Cups, as Wahab had average skills, less passion but more backing ensured he is preferred above Junaid. After sucking blood of Pakistan national side with his mediocre bowling and destroying careers, he made shameful decision to retire from Tests to play T20 leagues and continue to keep an eye on place in the ODI and T20 team of Pakistan to destroy chances of Pakistan in the next World Cup.

    Wahab has been great in T20 for last two years,I read this stats on skysports since 2018 he has got the lowest economy in the death overs(international + others).

    Pardon?

    Wahab Riaz lit up two World Cups with superb performances, which is why here in Australia he is the most admired and respected Pakistan cricketer of the last 20 years.

    In 2011 he took a 5 wicket bag in a World Cup semi-final v India in India.

    In 2015 he bowled the most electrifying World Cup spell since Shane Bond in a World Cup quarter-final v Australia in Australia.

    I think a lot of Pakistanis need to learn to show Wahab Riaz the respect he deserves. In 99% of cases he has achieved more than they ever will.

    you need to learn basics of cricket. He was the best bowler in both the 50 overs world cup.Junaid is just trash and way too mediocre with zero skills.Wahab is most passionate cricketer I have ever seen.You know nothing about cricket.

    yeah so true.He has been wonderful in t20s of late.He bowls those Yorkers regularly slower balls and everything and he has been the best pacer in PSL.He should definitely be part of world t20 this year.

    Don't know about T20. But in ODI whenever i see him he gets thrashed around. May be his record against top teams are very poor?

    Because with the big bats we have these days speed doesnít matter. Sure 150/155kph is hard to react against but 140/145kph which is express most bowlers average speed is pretty manageable on slow tracks. Plus edges fly to boundary faster takes pressure off.

    The Sami and Wahabs of this work could do with showing more control and make the batsmen play rather than fly the ball past them.
