    I didnt mind sticking with Bilal post his 6fer (Selecting him is another debate) till now but, this is the time when Mickey and Srafraz need to make the call for change in 2nd match and if they dont it will be another strategic mistake

    Which is why I would be tempted to play him in SA instead of Yasir because the Proteas are known to be vulnerable against right arm finger spin. They got mauled by Moeen Ali home and away vs England.

    Bilal gets good turn and bounce and has variations too but for my liking his pace is low and on these slow and low pitches this doesn't help.

    Ideally a full series will give him some momentum going into the SA series. I think he's bulked a bit since the U19 WC as well.

    This guy believes that Azhar is a trash coach. I would not take him seriously...Some people are capable of feeding negativity only and thrive on controversy...Now that Hassan is bowling well, which he believed Azgar is responsible fo when Hasa was not performingr, he needs to find a new bowler...Hey TOPSPIN, would you trade Shaheen for Hasan in this test?

    176 should be chased down but def not easy. There will be turn and ball is reversing.

    Surely even Pakistan cannot botch this chase on what appears to be a good batting surface. Not always do you get such conditions for a fourth innings chase.

    You are one deluded poster if you are going to get hyped over one Hasan Ali spell. Shaheen has a much higher ceiling. Unlike you I have some cricketing sense to realise Shaheen will be the key in SA (along with Abbas) because of his pace + height, but you would obviously you would pick the 5ft7 Hasan Ali over him on a bouncy wicket.

    Question should be Hasan Ali or Amir for the next series... Now as for not taking me seriously when we see your POTW accolades then talk.

    5 each.

    Perfect in between target - Kiwis would have loved a total of 200+, while PAK should have kept the target below 150 (by batting better in 1st innings - can't blame bowlers here after taking 20 wickets for 402).

    More concerned about the turn. The ball will be changed so the only question is if there will be swing for the pacers.

    Imam and Hafeez are the key to this chase. Hafeez will bat at a 60 SR if set and Imam has played very well in chases.

    Babar Azam has been Pakistan's best bat in Test cricket recently. It's criminal to send him at 6 to bat with the tail which he can't. He should be batting at 4. Haris at 5 and Shafiq at 6.

    10 overs left today - perfect for Boult as well, he'll be able to use the new ball for 10-12 overs at stress either side of night.

    PAK should win this, Kiwis don't have Herath. But it'll depend a bit on MoHa also - if he gets out quickly, Imam & Azhar are capable of turning this target to 225 easily.

    I said if the pace bowling performances in LOIs continue to rot like they have after the CT then yes something has to change whether it be the bowling coach or Sarfraz as captain.

    If Azhar Mahmood is so good why have the performances of Amir and Hasan Ali (post CT) in LOIs been mediocre?

    5'fer for both Yasir and Hasan. This doesn't happen often. Also Abbas streak of at least 1 wicket in each innings broke. First time I think he was wicketless in an innings

    Imam heard you :p. Great intent from him so far.

    P.s. you should have said it to Azhar in the first innings!

    PAK should win this, Kiwis don't have Herath. But it'll depend a bit on MoHa also - if he gets out quickly, Imam & Azhar are capable of turning this target to 225 easily.
    I don't know why you underrate Imam so much. To me he's going to be playing for the next 10 years. He's good. He will have failures but mentally he is very superior to all the rubbish openers we've seen over the past 10 years.

    Better students also need better teachers - even more so when they are going through a low phase.

    Not for Test - he is a perfect investment. He is a boundary hitter on selective balls, which is perfect for Test opener's spot. Same was Taufique Umar.

    Here good to see that he has started in a positive note - key to chase target in Test is reduce it quickly.

    So you are admitting that good students can have off days and teachers not to be blamed for it ALWAYS, right? Then you must also admit that a good or a bad student can't be JUDGED based o, one quarter/semester results. It does not make ANY sense to call for a teacher's head based on one semester result, does it...I hope you are catching the drift

    Kid has brain, and he is educated - I might like him as future Test Captain, provided that he retires (at least for the time being) from ODI - he'll loose both in that route.

    Imam is the first Pakistani opener in the last 10 years that I've seen who thinks based on match situations. He has a good match awareness about him. You just should've seen his innings against Ireland when Pakistan was chasing a similar target like today and were 14/3. Imam counter-attacked and was about 50 off 64 balls or something with 7-8 boundaries. He realized that counter attacking was the way to go then when the ball was seaming all around. He has a very good cricketing brain.

    I wouldn't advocate for Imam to be in the ODIs if we had a clone of Fakhar on the bench. But we don't. He's a good investment in ODIs as well. Pakistan needs one batsman to play out the 50 overs and when Imam does that, he invariably ends up with a 90ish SR. That is good enough. In ODIs, the ball has to be carried by Babar Azam who comes in at 3, not Imam. Babar should be the one who needs to accelerate.

    But i have to see him doing that in ODi.He is not the answer to our opening problems in ODi.

    Good call by Imam to get moving while the ball is still new and hard. Once it gets older and starts turning batting on the pitch will be much more of a challenge. Curious to see where Pakistan will be at the end of Day 3. If they somehow got to 50/0 will make tomorrow much easier.
