    They have got much better chance, when Misbah doesn't play as evident from yesterday's game.

    But is Bell enough. The seemed to also heavily rely on Ronchi to start well and hope Delport delivers more often.

    You can't afford to have more than one anchor in T20's especially a team like United who bat deep with Samit patel coming at #9. Talat can also play the role of an anchor so yeah Bell and Talat should be enough to provide them some middle order stability

    Maybe Patel should bat higher. Talat at No.3, Bell No.4 and Samit Patel No.5. With Delport, Asif Ali, Faheem and Shadab to follow.

    Alan Wilkins says Ian Bell is out of the tournament due to an injury. That's a blow for IU.

    Samit finally given a chance up the order and he delivers. Not a world beater but it was quite bizarre how Islamabad played somebody who bats at three for his county side, at 9 in previous games.

    The best all round team in the tournament.

    Shocking to see Nasir and Zafar sitting on the bench.

    If Ronchi doesn't fire, their batting looks weak. They played Parnell as a batsman today! Unfairness of draft means their foreign players are poor.

    Amad is another player who deserves a game.

    Ohh Amad is in IU?

    Wow they have a strong bench.

    Regarding batting i think Ronchi, Rizwan/Nasir, Samit, Hussain Talat, Asif, Shadab/Foreigner is a strong batting line up.

    Problem is they have to play four foreigners.

    Yes. Got this clarified.

    Surprising really. Would have thought there would be a minimum/maximum rather than a fixed number.

    I say this mostly in fun.

    But you can't be too serious.

    Misbah is mostly finished against any half decent pacer and cannot score off them. Against spinners too not as effective anymore.

    hey, he has scored his runs this season, he has scored 100 plus and has played only 3 games.

    Tonight was a big game and Sami messed up big time. Today was the night his captaincy was to be tested and he just messed up. Wrong bolwing changes, getting the wrong lengths....

    This was the place where Misbah was needed and even Dean Jones showed a picture that said MIss you MIsbah

    Did he?

    I just found the picture that I think you’re talking about and it’s fake. The text is edited on to the picture and you can tell it’s an old picture because you can see the old unfinished roof of the Karachi stadium.

    Islamabad United made some poor selections and more importantly brought in some odd players such as Phil Salt. Brought in Samit Patel who you could say underutilized thanks to the introduction of Zafar Gohar and finally bringing in Wayne Parnell and not playing him enough.

    Nope.

    If IU had Misbah, they would have won PSL 4 already because the other teams would have forfeited.

    The likes of Salt and Walton were very average.

    On top of that, they were stubborn with who played. It seemed like some of the coach's favourite players were undroppable.

    Some people on twitter are alleging that Dean Jones exploited Asif's personal situation by bringing it up in the press conference to deflect IU failure to reach the final and to win sympathy
