    Makes sense for him to play BPL. If he performs admirably then another blemish on Inzi's selector tenure.

    "Junaid Khan had some good performances in the Asia Cup but unfortunately during the series against New Zealand he got a very serious toe injury"

    "Even the doctor's report indicated that his injury was serious"

    "After that he worked on his fitness and also played in the National T20 Cup but we the selectors felt that as he is a fast-bowler we need to give him some time to recover"

    "So Junaid Khan will get time now [to recover]"
    ^^^ This is what Inzi said. They want to give him 'time to recover'.

    Now, PCB have given him a NOC to take part in BPL.

    Story of his treatment by the team management and PCB selectors. Gets limited chances, does well in most of them, one bad game and gets chopped while the over rated Amir gets a free pass with nothing to show for it.

    Tbf he was never that good in T20's anyway so I'm not expecting him to set the BPL on fire but I hope he does good as that will show Inzi what a stupid decision he made. Like I said on another thread, I think Junaid Khan would have been a good replacement for UKS for Melbourne Renegades in the BBL, and I'm sure playing in Australia would benefit him more than BPL, but good luck to him. Anyway, not up to him if he wanted to play for Renegades as it's up to the Franchise + his agent, I think they might have a replacement sorted anyway.

    Renegades had already announced Harry Gurney as replacement for Usman, even before BBL had started, so Junaid had no chance to play for renegades

    You have to wonder whether players take it easy in T20 leagues and don't give it their all there, either because they are injured, or because they want to prevent an injury.

    With Junaid (and maybe eve Haris) none of this really reflects poorly on the selectors. I feel he has a tendency to hide his fitness issues. We'll see how many games he plays in the BPL

    It amazing how disfunctional this organisation is.

    On one hand you have the chief selector saying that he’s not fit and he needs time to recover and on the other hand you have the PCB giving him permission to play cricket else where as if he is fit to play.

    To be fair, inzi didnít say he was injured. He said he needed time to find his rhythm back. BPL will be good for Junaid. Although, I agree he should have definitely been in our odi squad,

    This is not the first time Junaid was sidelined, he was cut out from the team between 2015 and 2016 since the 'chosen one' came back but he managed to be the top wicket taker in the 2016 BPL if I'm not mistaken.

    Finally made a comeback against Australia in 2017 in place Wahab Riaz and some of the other trundlers and has bowled exceptionally since then.

    Not to forget Mickey and Sarf didn't even think he was CT material to be included in the first game against India...

    To which he answered them by performing against all the big guns, South Africa, Srilanka and England in subsequent games.

    Again after being left out in the Asia Cup 2018 he came back with 4 wickets against Bangladesh in the semis to virtually set up a very chaseable 240 which our team couldn't.

    so amir takes 3 wickets @ 100 per wicket in the last year in 10 odis and finds his place.

    Junaid bowled well in asia cup , should have been selected.

    Exactly. Junaid has been hard done by the PCB for some reason. He is better than all bowlers we have bar Shaheen. Its very unfortunate.

    Always balls well but is so often in and out of the side. I understand if it is an injury this time round but Inzys comments are ambiguous. The way I read them, he has recovered from the injury but is not ft enough to make the squad, which begs the questions, what exactly are these new fitness tests being introduced???

    Bowled quite well today I thought. 4 overs for 24 runs and 1 wicket, including the 19th over in which he conceded only 4 runs, while the other bowlers conceded 9 and 18 runs in the 18th and 20th overs.

    Very accurate and good summary this. He's always been hard done by the selectors and team management. I still remember how in the 2013 CT Misbah played Asad Ali over him and when Junaid returned in the series against West Indies after the tournament he bowled exceptionally well.

    He's a better bowler than they think and doesn't have an ego unlike a lot of other players.

    3 wickets today. Junaid will walk into any BPL team. You just don't want to admit it. Most Pakistani players boss BPL. And the crowds also love the Pakistani players

    But but but he is injured and needs more time to recover -



    did Imam take up fast bowling? Maybe that is why Inzi didn't want to include another pacer to challenge Imam's spot in the side.




    On side note, that kit from BPL is straight fire. I do not watch the tourney because I feel it is very low quality but I've seen they don't do a bad job with the kits.

    This is a misleading post. You should do some research before posting. Yes he played in Australia but then was injured for the following tour to New Zealand. I think he got injured in UAE later also. In fact I think junaid is almost perennially injured or making comebacks or is not quite match fit. In fact whilst I think the selectors seem to make some very arbitrary selections in this particular instance it’s right that junaid plays some t20 leagues, earns money and gets match fit. He might yet make the t20 squad. And maybe he will be there for World Cup fit and raring to go. He knows England well having played for Lancashire in the past. It’s absolutely right that we have a squad of about 6 match ready seamers of which he will be one.

    I have zero reason to feel Junaid was unfairly excluded from the squad. Folks falling over themselves hooting and hollering that his 4 overs in a domestic league proves he is ready to last out a 5 match odi series.

    There is ample evidence that the selection is full of nepotism. Taking 5 injured players to the tour of SA is an evidence.. Mickey takes in his circle who he loves doesn't matter they able to serve or come back middle of the tour... Harris, Shadab, Fakhar, yasir, faheen are the examples.

    What does that have to do specifically with my opinion about Junaid never beiong fit enough to complete a series.

    This thread implies that junaid being enough to play BPL should mean he is fit enough for international cricket. And I see no definitive proof of that since he has just played one game and that 4 overs in a domestic league are not the same as 5 match series against south africa in south africa.

    I couldn't care less about the coach's favorites imagined or otherwise.

    If there indeed was any disciplinary issue, the board should come out and say it as it is.

    You started off incorrectly and then continued on that path. Inzi excluded him on the pretext that even though he has recovered from injury he needs to regain form to earn a call-up. Picking up 3 wickets in a T20 coupled with other good performances would indicate form.

    Sure, if you feel he is unfairly excluded, you have a right to feel that three wickets in one t20 game in a domestic league convincingly answers Inzamam's doubts.

    So he should have picked up 10 wickets? Or force PCB to arrange domestic matches so that he can pick up wickets?


    I'm not getting where your argument is headed. Some time people should learn to accept that they were wrong.

    whats there to get. he played one t20 game in bangladesh and you think he is good to start off against south africa in five game series. I think he has to play out the whole tournament to be even considered. . simple enouh

    Two things:

    1) Junaid Khan has been granted time to recover. If he wastes that away, the PCB and selectors should not be held responsible. The player should be. He is an adult, he can make his own decisions.

    2) Playing T20s is nowhere near as taxing as playing ODIs in South Africa. Besides, it is good that he's getting some form behind him.

    I would have loved to see Junaid bowl in South Africa again. However, if he's unfit, he shouldn't be making the team ahead of Hasan or Shaheen. Playing in the BPL is his decision and hopefully, it proves to be a good one.

    Junaid khan is a class act, his wrist position and seam is extremely tight.. I haven't followed his entire career but watched him in India in 2012 series and he looked like a terrific bowler..

    Seeing he has been doing well and then got Injured I guess the selectors are not wrong here to not select him.. He can play BPL and if he does ok he can be called for last 2ODI Vs SA or can play the next series.

    Bangladeshi local batsmen are terrible, they are making Mashrafee looking like McGrath

    Wahab will probably be the fastest bowler in this tournament.

    Only Rangpur & Dhaka looks like they are investing money on foreign players. Why are four foreign players playing, last year it was 5 right?

    Junaid Khan was dropped, plain and simple. But Inzamam came up with clever excuse that we are giving him time to recover (to avoid criticism of the press). In fact PCB has been ignoring Junaid Khan for awhile now. They only play Jk in the Odi Format. That too when all else fails like in Asia Cup, when the whole bowling line up was being destroyed by the opposition Junaid was given a single chance.

    I honestly don't know why we are making such a big deal out of this. Inzamam is not the most articulate person out there, maybe he meant Junaid wasn't match-fit? Maybe he meant he wanted Junaid to get more match practice outside of internationals. It doesn't seem like Junaid is crying a river over it but we (fans) certainly seem to be doing so.

    Also bowling 4 overs in a T20 is not the same as bowling 10 overs in a ODI, sometimes we are WAY too critical, I actually feel like theres nothing wrong with allowing Junaid to get some game time under his belt before recalling him to the national team.

    Completely agree with you regarding the selectors. It seems are fanbase is just eager to criticize the selectors and will jump all over any opportunity to do so.

    After Abbas, Junaid is the only proper seam bowler. Could have been useful in SA, especially in tests. He bowls that nagging length jacking the inwards.

    No one is above Pakistan cricket, not MA or Inzimam. If they are going to hurt Pakistan cricket's interests by keeping better players away, then having no issues with it speaks volumes.
