    Nathan Lyon surely deserves more respect. Ashwin and Yasir should play in the home series only.

    Basically he is useless the minute he steps outside of Asia. At least with Ashwin he can hold down an end and be economical. Same can't be said for Yasir.

    Indian s and Pakistanis are simply expecting too much from spinners outside their home venues.

    Ashwin's away average = 31.xx
    Yasir's away average = 34.xx
    Lyons away average = 31.xx

    It's about as good as spinners have done historically away from home. Unless you are shane Keith warne or muttiah muralithran.

    You need quality batsmen and fast bowlers to win away. Only so much that spinners can do

    Of course unless you are a Warne or a Murali as a spinner you will struggle away from home. But if you compare the economy rates of the 3 above spinners away from home you will notice how Yasir cannot hold down an end unlike the other 2. Even during the recent India series in England iirc Ashwin economy rate for the entire tour never went above 3 an over. Whilst for Yasir if conditions are not in his favour he regularly goes at over 3.5 an over.

    And the less said about the Pakistan batting line up the better but I do agree to win away especially in SENA condition it is your fast bowlers and your batsmen who have a major role to play.

    Tbf though he hasnít had a great chance to bowl in the fourth innings with the batting being so poor.

    I know we are all down that yasir hasnt picked wickets but i wonder if any other spinners in the world would have taken any wickets on these pitches?

    Obviously it makes matters worse if your batting line up cant even score 200...

    May be going forward Pakistan should look for a spinner who can be a proper number 8. Someone like Zafar Gohar may be?

    Lol

    He is being tonked at 4 runs an over. Leave alone taking wickets. He should at least stop runs. Pakistan are better off with a proper batsman for the next test rather than having this pedestrian player.

    Ahswin did pick up 5 top order wickets in first test and chipped in with runs in first inning. 6 wickets at 24 a piece in the first test. Bowled 86 overs by giving less than 2 runs per over allowing pacers to be fresh from other side. Any visiting spinner will be thrilled with that.

    Easy - in the UAE he is the strike bowler while overseas Sarfaraz has used him when the pacers tire and to contain runs. You simply do not play a leggie to contain runs as he will never have the control of a finger spinner and will bowl far too many loose deliveries.

    These conditions do not warrant a specialist spinner at all, he shouldn't be even playing. Misbah made the same mistake when he was included in the 1st test vs NZ in 2016 on a green top where Pakistan's batting were blown away on the first day.

    Basically we wasted a spot in 2 matches. Now after losing 2 matches, Sarfraz will realize his mistake.

    Because he is and he was never a big turner of the ball.

    Pakistan should replace him for such away tours with Irfan Khan who is technically sound batsman aswell.

    Pakistan's FC pitches do not suit spinners hence his FC record isn't decent.

    Horrible.

    Worst spinner in the world right now particularly outside Asia.

    Mickey Arthur and Sarfraz are clueless to let him play outside Asia.
