    Time to drop Hasan Ali?

    The inevitable question - needs to be asked based upon his last few performances.

    No the bowling coach needs to fill him with confidence and remind him that when he came initially, he attached the top of off stumps more and now he doesn't. It's very simple honestly for any fast bowler, hit the top of the stumps and search for that length and batsman will struggle

    A very thick logic and you do that quite often here.

    First of all, Azhar was a decent bowler and could bowl economically. He was a useful alrounder which
    Was his job. Besides, where is a rquirement for a coach to be a good player himself? As far as I know, most coaches have been below par players in their lives majority of the time in ALL sports.

    Coming back to the subject, It is Hassan's confidence hurting in the worst part of the cricket world. He is trying too many tricks instead of keeping it simpler. I am sure he will regain confidence and will be a much better bowler in SA.

    This. The bowling coach needs to held accountable. What is he getting paid for when all our bowlers are struggling. When the bowling coach himself doesn't know the intricacies of fast bowling, how can he help other bowlers?

    You could see today after his first wicket his ball was zipping about and did bowl much better. Giving him a rest is the easy way out, he's young and should be played so he can learn and become stronger mentally and physically to the demands of international cricket.

    Nope. Sure heís had a string of poor performances. However he is still a vital cog in the pace battery and is vital for the Asia cup. I recon allow him to play the final ODI against NZ. Then go back and prep for SA and the World Cup like Amir.

    I don't know why he was giving short balls today and was hit with boundaries and next over he showed batman the way to the pavilion with a length bowl yorker.

    The key should be He should be persisted with his line and lenght and wickets will fall.

    You ignored the essence of his statement completely. The fast bowlers are struggling and with the World Cup coming up we need them in form. A change in a more qualified bowling coach might be the solution.

    We should look for a bowling coach who has vast experience of both Pakistani cricket and English conditions. It would also be a bonus if they had helped a low ranked international side win a major trophy within the last 1.5 years.

    Like football coaches you're only as good as your last game and you have to adapt to the current standards. If Amir, Hasan Ali and co continue to struggle a more qualified coach might bring the best out of them. Azhar may have done wonders in the past but is he doing enough for these pacers to hit their potential?

    I don't know if you follow football but Claudio Ranieri led Leicester City to a title against all odds but next season he was a shambles, so the solution was to change managers as he had lost the dressing roomand as a result the team was back in form again. Have you wondered perhaps Azhar has muddled the minds of these bowlers and perhaps they don't agree with his methods?

    Not calling for his head but something will have to change if it continues whether it be dropping players, remove Sarfraz as captain or change in coach(es).

    Hasan's problem is mental. He is still running in hard and bowling fast and very fit to last longer in this format of the game, but success went in to his head and ever since that he has been struggling. When you focus too much on celebrating a wicket and wearing silly things around your neck, then you are going to fail for sure. Cricket is a cruel game and demands too much of mental attention and does not let you take it easy. You must respect this game, otherwise you will be done and dusted very soon.
    Should be dropped, just so he can come back to earth.

    Every player goes through a bad phase. Not so long ago Shadab admitted to the media that he fears batsmen have identified his strength - but he's comeback strong.

    Remember Smith in 2010-11 period? He struggled for Australia big time. But they stood by him and gave him the time to settle in. Same method should be applied with Hasan - he's going through a phase. Needs to rest, as he has played ALOT of cricket.

    This is also a reality check that Hasan is not as good as PP'ers make out - and for Hasan that he is a cricket player, not celebrity.

    Was poor early on, but once he got a wicket he seemed to find his zip again and was getting the ball to tail.

    He needs to show more intelligence at the death though; he has a lethal yorker but insists on over-using his slower balls. Tail enders should not be hitting him for six!

    Well we can either rest him or let him play on till he hits form. Going by Fakhar's scenario I think the team management are going to persist with him till he finds form again. There may be a dozen problems with the current team management but they give a very long run to any youngster which they have identified as a future prospect. Babar hasn't been dropped from Tests, Fakhar was persisted with despite a string of failures and now they are showing a lot of confidence in Hassan to come good.

    NZ's tail is capable of smashing pretty much any bowling lineup. They've done it to pretty much every lineup.

    LOL. Before advocating, add some sense. A coach can only do so much. EVERY player goes thru ups and downs. Who was the bowling coach when he performed so well previously. Use your head instead of being Jazbati kind. You I guess like to blame a teacher for failed students?

    The first thing he needs to do is get rid of that stupid celebration, learn to bowl a good leg cutter or outswinger when the ball is still a bit new.. his incutter is good but he needs to take them away feom right handers as well.. and a few slow ball variations like someone else pointed out..

    we have enough fast bowlers in reserve to rotate and rest, not necessarily drop. Pakistans problem in the past has been persisting too long with players who aren't performing and giving them a sense of false confidence. Competition for places is a good thing and should be utilized to motivate and pressure players to perform better.

    He's been just superb after an indifferent first spell. Put a lie to the idea that one needed Wahab Riaz for reverse swing in the UAE. Both Abbas and Hasan reversing it at will. Riaz is barely a bowler compared to them.

    Wahab will go down as an AIMLESS hard-working individual for Pak cricket. The guy lacked plan to setup a bat. He was gifted with pace but never knew how to utilize it. Bowling short was his idea I guess to get a bat out which only worked on rear occasions on helpful wickets.

    Tests will be his best format stick
    With him he is the ideal 3rd seamer to back up Abbas and a left armer Amir/Shaheen

    Hassan is an attacking fast bowler and should be used as such in ODIs. Should bowl with the new ball and than complete his quota of 10 overs until 44th over. No point wasting him during death overs.

    Over last few months, I see most fans here are busy to curse PAK bowlers - Amir can't take wicket, Hasan is too loose, Yasir is fat, Bilal is useless........ had this guy Abbas not won couple of series, by now he would have been tundler as well.

    But, everyone is missing the big elephant in the room - PAK is carrying few fossil as batsmen and it's the bowlers that have kept them some what at decent level. T20 is a game where blowers dominate and you don't need proper batsmen to put a total over 20 overs course - hence bowlers have lifted team to rank 1....

    I don't think that's true. Actually apart from Wahab's debut at The Oval, he never delivered on helpful wickets.

    I had reservations about Hasan Ali for UAE tests but he has proven a lot of people wrong including me. His late inswingers have been beautiful to watch. Hopefully he can get some more wickets and help Pakistan have a small total to chase.

    I am not in disagreement. As I said, he had no plan but I appreciate his hard work.

    Agree, heís a really good first change, his pace is up too.

    Abbas, Shaheen, Hassan would be terrific for SA - I know Shaheenís young, but if he gets at least one test against NZ, donít see him letting anyone down. His height along with his ability is such an asset.

    Yeah I don't know why the excuse of inexperience comes up for Shaheen, you build experience by playing not watching.

    Look at Rabada. He was fast tracked from U19 squad and is now vital in all 3 formats for SA.

    At this point, I will second Abbas, Hasan and Afridi for Sa tour. We need guys who can bowl sides out. Amir isnít going todo that.

    Amir is as capable as any if he goes back to the basics. He no longer attack stumps and I hardly see him bowl yorkers. Once he starts bowling closer from the stumps again, he will be the best we have - better than Abbas even.

    I think he has been superb in this match against New Zealand.

    Good speed, control, reversed it and troubled the batsmen.

    Most importantly he has thought about his bowling.

    He bowled beautifully throughout the test. His pace was good throughout and bowled tight. It's between him and Yasir for the MOM award.

    Bowling with the new ball is what got Hasan to the national team as he was phenomenal for the Peshawar Zalmi's. But for some reason he does't get the new ball anymore.

    This match he got the new ball and did his magic. He got pace and swings the ball so should always get a sight of the new ball. Starting with guys like Faheem is a defensive option.

    See this is the part of Pakistan cricket I don't understand.

    This is a 24 year old young bowler who has a Golden Ball trophy, had a superb test series against NZL in the UAE on dead wickets yet gets absolutely obliterated in South Africa.

    Why the extremes?

    5 wickets in 3 innings so far and people are getting so upset acting like he’s useless. Our fans can’t stick with players through tough times and it is so embarrasing.

    On the other hand 28 year old Abbas has 4 wickets in 3 innings and everyone is silent.

    Hassan is a good third seamer Abbas is the metronome and doing the job well though his fitness is troubling him in this series. The big problem is the attack lease Aamer who never bowls a match winning spell. Both Hassan and Abbas will look better once we have an attack leader in steam of Amir most likely it will be Shaheen but that is already 2 years away.
