    My point is Imam is trying hard to justify his uncle's decision of including him in ODIs by trying to play a type of game which is not natural to him.

    I do. I think his foundation is very good and he should be given a long rope to see if he can build on it. It is not as if we are loaded with options. All this talk of Sharjeel coming back is fiction.

    The signs are not looking good, and usually, bottlers do not get better with experience. The capacity perform under pressure is a trait - you either have it or you don't. No amount of coaching or experience will help you on those fronts, and players who had/have the ability to absorb pressure usually show it at a very young age.

    You just contradicted yourself, calling him a bottler, and then expecting him to chase this down. They don't go hand in hand.

    Rather than trying non openers. Babar/fakhar should open. I would give Imam/Harris 1 down position.

    Where is the contradiction? You have to a very special kind of bottler to bottle a 50 runs head start in a 200 run chase.

    However, 9/10 times, he will let the team down in a big chase. That is why he is a bottler.

    He meant bottler in big chases and under pressure. This is supposed to be an easy one.

    His foundation is very good for Test match opener, not LO. Playing him in ODI forcefully will only dilute his focus and he might end up losing both - kid has 15 years left in carer & his uncle won't be CS for good.

    This is the same mistake done with Taufique Umar, who should have been breathing YK's Test numbers by now, if not crossing that already but for being forced to open in ODI, which cost him his Test spot at 23. He was destined to play 150+ Tests, for 10K+ runs at 40+ average and may be 25 Test hundreds, guy was a brilliant slip fielder as well.

    @Mamoon

    He might be solid as a test batsman but no way he is a limited overs player.

    Look at his bat speed, reflexes and shot array.

    You need these to be a successful limited overs player.

    Surely there are better players than Imam who himself had a List A average of 32 as he made his international debut.

    Edit: Please have a look over @MMHS 's post above as well.

    Haris Sohail will strengthen this lineup somewhat, but let's be honest - he is not going to be a big factor in turning our fortunes against quality teams.

    At his best, more often than not, he will huff and puff his way to a 50 at a strike rate of 85. In order to compete with the top teams in the world, Babar, Fakhar and one more batsman will have to main 45+ averages at a 90+ strike rate against the top teams in the world.

    I don't see that happening. We do not have the capacity to produce batsmen of that class.

    Imam's injury (wishing quick recovery) actually exposes once again what UAE wicket has done to PAK batsmen. Long back, I saw an archive, where without helmet, Mazid smashed a similar ball through mid-on like a tennis double handed forehand ... off Mike Holding.

    Doubt so. It is one of those you either have it or you don't qualities.

    When an 18 year old decides to save a first-class game for his team and ends up scoring a hundred hours after his father's death, you know that he is not going to go down without fighting.

    Babar has a very similar vibe to Amla, and I have been waiting for Amla to prove me wrong for a decade now, and so has our friend Bilal7.

    How else would people like to describe this win? And why does everyone expect me to wax lyrical about this team that does and will continue to lose more than half of its matches against the top half teams?

    People did not like the word fluke, and they seem to have a problem with the Law of Averages phenomenon as well. If they expect me to celebrate and rejoice at lowering the losing percentage from 100% to 90%, it is not going to happen. I am not going to ignore the true capabilities of this mediocre team because they had a good day.
    Maybe the problem is your expectations. You keep telling us that Pakistan Cricket is finished, in which case a 25% success rate against teams which are not 'finished' along with an ODI tournament win (no matter how fluky) is absolutely fine. So what if this gives fans of a 'minnow' level team choti choti khusiyaan?

    He found a way around it today. Good strategy to carress it than to bludgeon balls on the on side. As the commies said, the way his bat comes down at an angle means it is very difficult for him to hit good length and full balls at pace to mid wicket or long on. Better to carress it to square leg or fine leg and that's what he did. Good players always find a way. He will only improve from here.

    I'd expect Hafeez and Fakhar to open with Azhar at 3. Allows Pakistan to go with 4 specialist bowlers and have an extra batsmen.

Better to carress it to square leg or fine leg and that's what he did. Good players always find a way. He will only improve from here.
    I can see this guy cares about his game and feels working hard is the way rather than giving interviews like other "talented players"

    Now, I am not liking Fakhar - mentally he is an aggressive batsman who likes to dominate spinners; making an uncharacteristic hundred might be good for stats (and prove a point), but it won't change his situation much. He should be aggressive and attack Sodhi - if he gets out, so it be but one of the biggest mistake in cricket is to believe that stats would be better if an aggressive batsman curbs his basic instincts.

    Once someone (Roubuck may be), asked Viv if he had gone for a SR of 60 (instead of 75) could his average gone higher? Viv said that, it would have reduced my average because I would have blocked about 2500 balls unnecessarily.

    FZ is good as an aggressor, not steady operator - PAK has at least half a dozen to out perform him in that role.

    With all due respect to Imam, good player and good guy but i think Babar needs to open regularly in ODIs with Fakhar.

    And only 10 ODI 100s.

    Out of those 83 ODI 50s he should have converted at least 20 of those to centuries.

    Used to come in at number 4 or 5.

    And since he did play for Pakistan that meant coming out pretty early due to the openers sucking.

    True. Conversion rate is an issue but he batted at 5 mostly

    Inzamam would have scored 30+ ODI hundred, had he focused on his fitness and batted at three or even opened.

    For a player of his capabilities, 10 ODI hundreds is nothing. Even Hafeez has surpassed his tally and Babar will surpass it in a couple of years.
