    Pakistan Super League - Pakistani batsmen watch

    Or lack thereof!

    Seems like apart from Umar Aknal - not too many big performances in the PSL when it comes to batting - is that a reflection of what we see at the international level also?

    Pakistani batters @PSL

    It seems like without the overseas players, a lot of the Pakistani players dont have it in them to chase big totals.

    For example, just look at the Karachi v Quetta match, the overseas players are doing it for the Karachi and I can bet none of the Pakistani players have it in them to even come close to the Quetta total, let alone hit so many sixes as Colin Ingram.

    Also most of the upcoming batsmen like Ali Imran, Saud Shakeel, Khushdil Shah, Nabi Gul, Saad Ali, Nasir Nawaz are yet to get a single game.

    PSL franchises are only selecting Pakistani players with big hitting hacking abilities, selecting the top Pakistani domestic performing batsmen like Abid Ali is not a priority.

    Maybe if there was a 50 over PSL tournament will those guys get a chance

    Ingram 127
    The next highest score was 19,
    is this the biggest gap ever?

    Some very ordinary performances from Pakistani batsmen so far.

    Am I surprised? No.

    Priority should be talent production. Other than that few marketing techniques such as advertising similar to the one we see before PSL, cheaper tickets, held in stadiums all over Pakistan so people in all cities get chance to watch, etc.

    In that way you make the money you need and also give some younger guys a chance.

    Could any of our current batsmen have played an innings like Colin Ingram did against Quetta?

    No chance!

    Umar Akmal is good for 60/70, but I won't expect anywhere near a 127* from him. That was such a phenomenal innings, we may not see an innings like that for another 5 years.

    Don't forget, Umar Akmal has 1 T20 century in 247 games. Its unfair to expect another from him in this PSL, no matter how good the form

    Just imagine, Akmal opening the innings, Quetta makes 200+ Akmal 100+*!

    Except for Akmal, the rest have been mediocre.

    Zaman did play a good knock in that 200 chase, but not much else to talk about.

    Umar started as an opener at U19 level, surprising that he hasnt been tried at opening slot at international level as technically he is pretty decent.

    Opening the innings was a game changer for Rohitís careet.

    pakistani think tank isn't that smart enough to think of something like that..

    we have the talent in the ranks but these people just do such a horrendous job at making the most of it.

    Should be sent out to open at least once this season I reckon, because with the form he is in it is now or never to test him there.

    Name one Pakistani batsmen in the current PSL...

    ...that you'd pick in the next squad call-up?

    I genuinely didn't find one player that I'd pick, and that says a lot about where we are as a batting nation.

    I can pick 3-4 players that I can point at and say they have a bright future, but those players aren't batsmen.

    Which Pakistani player will get century in PSL 4

    So far in this PSL we have had 2 centuries one coming from colin Ingram and the other from Cameron deport with only 4 games left in the PSL can a Pakistani batsmen join the club, I feel the pitch in Karachi is the perfect place to do it , questions is who will it be , or will it happen that this PSL edition not a single Pakistani batsmen will get a century


    I feel if someone is to get it from Pak it will be a opener

    My gut feeling is telling me it will be babar Azam

    What do you guys think

    for that babar will need to play at least 14-15 overs out of the total 20 overs. Kami might do it again.

    Kami will get a chance again as his team will play the winner of Karachi vs Islamabad , I feel if Karachi bat first than babar will have a good chance to hit it.

    Watching today's game, I must say that its shocking to see how the Pakistani players in general struggle to clear the ropes. No real zing in their shots the way I see the overseas players clearing standard length balls out of the ground.

    The stats are hardly earth-shattering if we were looking for some new T20 talent:

    Top scorer Kamran Akmal with 357 in 13 innings
    Then Imam-ul-Haq with 341 runs in 12 innings
    Then Babar Azam with 335 runs in 11 innings

    The next few are:

    Ahmed Shehzad
    Fakhar Zaman
    Asif Ali
    Umar Akmal
    Shoaib Malik

    Gym won't really make that much difference, what makes a little bit of difference is practicing hard in the nets. England hired a baseball coach to help with their power hitting and it made a difference. I wonder why doesn't the PCB think about this?
