    How good really is Saif Badar?

    Don't attack me, I haven't seen much of him except in the PSL a couple times but I have noticed posters on this forum rate him really highly. I am curious as to why?

    His career stats up to now don't really show anything and he's older than Shadab Khan.

    So why do you guys rate him so highly?

    In 22 List A innings Shadab has 4 50's compared to Saif's 3 in 21 innings.

    Stars don't really look good
    Another Asif Ali?

    I have also noticed some posters hyping him here but his stats arent impressive at all

    Or is he rated for his performances at the junior level?

    I mean he has potential, looked solid in the u-19 world cup. Just hasn't done anything notable yet, but he has had a few solid performances this season. Not ready for international level but definitely someone to keep an eye on

    Just another player that's been hyped up to be the savior of our batting.

    We shouldn't read too much into Pak domestic stats. In recent months, Saif Badar was seen batting at #7/8.
    He is a #4/5 batsman and if he is batting at #7/8, we can't rely on stats.

    May be this PSL, MS will give him enough chances at #4 and we can see it live.

    Before this season, he had no performances of note in domestic cricket.

    However, he had a very good QEA Cup this year and finished some tight chases. Not many young batsmen in Pakistan are known for finishing the innings and scoring in those type of situations.

    He has a little bit of hype around him, but definitely a better prospect than Sahibzada Farhan.

    Badar has batted well this season. The problem is that he bats at 7 or below in domestics which is unacceptable really. Needs to be given run in top order.

    I think that's what it is, he is a decent prospect that is being wasted at No.6/7. Needs to be batting in the middle order.

    The stat that actually matters.

    He is just 20 years of age i think and he has everything that Pakistani batting needs right now. His overall stats dont tell you the potential because he has been made to bat at 7 and 8 many times by his seniors and even from that position he scored some match winning innings.

    BUT, previously it was seen that he has tempramental issues which i hope he has worked on now. For Pakistani standards, he is still once in a generation kind of talent.

    Make him an opener. He is tall, can hit boundaries, and is right-handed. Pakistan could use that type of player.

    I can say the lad's got potential and has the ability to finish games and embark on difficult chases (something that is sorely missed in the Pakistan senior).

    That said if I pour over heaps of praise, people would probably see it as a conflict of interest. So I'll just share the above two cents of mine.

    Just see this innings of his at u19 level. Some real talent on display. Tall, strong, Talented and a powerful hitter at that.

    He can score against quality attack and talent is certainly there but needs more time to learn how to build an innings..

    Saud Shakeel is ready though!

    Excellent questions in that particular podcast. The guys gives me the impression of a player who is quite determined. Hopefully, he continues to develop.

    Right now, he's not ready for International stage. There is no history of scoring big runs, needs centuries under his belt in the top
    Order.

    He is getting better , probably will see him at his best in a couple of seasons.

    He has done well this season.

    He should play in the top order to fully realize his potential.

    Yes, definitely. He is not ready for international cricket.

    He should perform for a couple of seasons in domestics and he should play some Pakistan A matches as well.

    21 innings and his highest score is 86 on Pakistani pitches against C grade bowlers and he's supposedly the savior of our batting.

    In IPL, Schulman Gill was batting at 6/7 for KKR. We shouldn't really be deceived by his IPL stats.
    Saif Badar may not be as good as par hype but so far we have no relevant set of stats to judge it. I guess we should wait for now.
