    Why is Yasir Shah selected ahead of Umer Khan?

    Such a stupid selection.

    A 30+ year old leggie who failed in PSL and has an average list A bowling stat is selected ahead of the talented young Umer.

    Disgusting stuff...I am sure Pakistan can survive without a leggie.

    Because Inzi is living in some glorious unknown past where Yasir did well in ODIs.

    Yasir has never been a good choice in ODIs.

    Mickey should have pushed for Umer Khan's selection as he is playing under him and Mickey has seen him closely.

    Cant blame everything on Inzi.

    Umer has been splendid this tournament. Should have selected him, maybe his fielding or batting is not up to scratch but should be ahead of Yasir in the pecking order.

    I don't like the idea of yasir for odis but umar khan is not the right choice .a few t20 performances shouldn't be barometer for selection. The same mistake was made with nawaz which failed miserably in the ideal world zafar gohar should be first choice spinner for odis

    It's mind boggling.

    You got Zafar Gohar

    And if you do not like Zafar you can select Nawaz or a youngster in Umer Khan.

    Yet you select Yasir Shah? I can't believe it.

    The only reason that comes to mind is that we already have a slow left arm option in Imad Wasim. So wanted a wrist spinner. Not a good reason, as Umer Khan seems way better than Yasir Shah in limited overs cricket and the kid definitely deserves a chance

    I don't know how they are going to do it but Umer Khan deserves to play in the team. That's it.

    He must be trialled against Australia in the upcoming series.

    They should also announce an A team immediately with the performers of PSL and get those guys to play alongside the main side in the ICC academy ground.

    About time that people like Haris Rauf, Musa, Hasnain are elevated above Rahat Ali, Sohail Khan etc.

    We need to invest in our youth now, and not wait for three years before all of them are done and dusted.

    He doesn't spin it big, he just has good flight and variation. The ball doesn't have to spin much when the batsmen doesn't know which way it's going.

    I'm talking about ODIs. Yadav doesn't rip it sideways like murali or others used to do in the 90s. I'm not saying it's his fault, the ball and pitches are not conducive to spin bowling. He gets wickets due to his fantastic flight and variation.

    Discrimination shown by selectors on PSL performers?

    As many know here my english sucks so the heading could be misleading. But what I wanted to say that you pick Husnain for Australia tour based on performances in PSL. Nice, I support that.

    But why do you pick Yasir Shah and not Umer Khan? Yasir hardly picked 3 wickets in 5 matches whereas Umer has 15 wickets in 11 and way better average and SR. Even Ibtisam Sheikh has bowled better than Yasir.

    Pakistani are gone way too conservative not just as a society but in Cricket too, gone are days, when youngsters were given chances. Now they have to prove repeatedly before getting a break. Politics and bureaucracy is pretty bad. Ex-players, media, management everybody has there own little bubble and agendas

    We were lot more enterprising in 80s/90s, hence more successful...

    This is a very valid point raised by OP. Umer Khan really could have gained invaluable experience in these 5 ODIs and potentially made a claim to the World cup squad. Yasir Shah is a lost cause in ODI cricket.

    Mickey Arthur seems clueless when it comes to tactics especially in UAE.

    Umer played under him all season and he didnt push for his selection rather was ok with one trick ponny like Imad and Yasir.

    I suspect Yasir is selected to make a few bucks because there’s no more test cricket for many months..

    I guess thereís no question that Umer should have been selected for this series.

    But also, in terms of the World Cup, neither of them will make the squad. Shadab and Imad will go along as the spinners/ all rounders and there just isnít space in a 15 person squad for a spinner.

    Along with the 11, Pakistan will take a backup opener, middle order batsman, all rounder (Faheem) and fast bowler.

    Yasir Shah is absolutely useless in ODI's but I guess the only reason he was selected as he is a direct switch with Shadab Khan, who is also a leg spinner. We already have one left arm spinner in Imad Wasim. That's the only logical explanation. But, is it a good decision? Probably not, as Yasir Shah is absolutely filth in white ball cricket.

    Yasir is a shocking selection in odi cricket I wouldn't be suprised if he gets hit for 100+ runs in his 10 overs soon
