    At the moment, yes. Having a poor PSL, where even the likes of Faheem made it count, doesn't help his cause at all.

    The fact of the matter is that he doesn't have any skill! He can run in and bowl at decent pace . . no skill, no game awareness, can't swing the ball, no bounce . . nothing!

    He is going to get absolutely WALLOPED in England if we take him!

    I dont see him better than the 9 names mentioned. This list excludes experienced bowlers such as Irfan and Sami who might still be better than him.
    You forgot Junaid Khan.

    I think Shinwari needs to rediscover the swing which made him deadly in his opening season in domestic cricket

    I don’t know. I like something about him. I was sick of watching unmotivated trundlers like Rahat ali fr so long. Shinwari has passion and a fast bowlers aggression. He runs in hard and is lively with the ball.

    However, he can always bowl an over which loses his team the match or bowl an over which wins his team the match. He blows hot and cold.

    Not hitting the good length often and when he does his line is off more often than not. For any movement to be generated and be effective you need to be bowling in an area of uncertainty. Whatever little swing he produces is going to be ineffective as a short ball or half volley.

    I actually forgot to add Rumman Raees Also.

    Shinwari is sol fortunate to to still be selected for the series against Australia. Although as argued 11-12 names should be considered before him.

    Good for Pakistan really, looks like the Pace factory is back

    Shinwari needs work with the coaches. Plenty of examples of bowlers who were initially hot and cold in the early part of their careers before they became more consistent with more experience. If he can rediscover the swing he had in his first season and the pace he bowls at he will be lethal.

    I wonder if him striving for extra pace is the problem which hurts his length

    This thread is like saying that other cricketer's don't have that big hearts compared to Shinwari and aren't trying hard enough.

    Poster is just supporting one of their favourite bowlers by using this mediocre justification.

    I agree that Usman has the potential to blow line ups away but he is extremely inconsistent and the risk isn't worth it unless he improves.

    You can judge these things by looking at a bowlers body language in general and especially when the going gets tough. Seeing Amir operate at 127-128 km/hr on unsupportive pitches or when the overs pile is another example. Even Imran Khan used to like cricketers who had temprament rather than ability alone. This is the reason why he picked Mushtaq Ahmed in the 1992 WC squad.

    Agree .....I don't get how shinwari is a better bowler than Wahab to get picked again and again for Pakistan .. the latter should have been picked atleast for the Australia series .he was by far our best bower at the last world cup and has been performing well and bowling at pace in current PSL !

    Shinwari has ability no doubt but when the stakes are high, unfortunately he crumbles as we saw yesterday. Should be kept away from the Pakistan squad. Need players who can keep their cool under pressure.

    Don't think its the pressure, just gets his execution wrong. Players under pressure dont race in every delivery

    He's always crumbles under the slightest pressure.

    Yes he gives 100% but he's not good enough at international level. He will choke in the WC - no doubt about it!

    Also there is no way does he have the edge on Amir, who not only has an intelligent cricketing brain but knows how to keep his calm on the big stage as evident by his excellent track record in ICC LOI tournaments and his excellent economy at the death + in T20Is.

    Picking Shinwari and making him bowl at the death is a recipe for disaster my friend!

    He has no game awareness. Just runs in and tries to bowl quick.

    And, he's not that quick either

    I don't doubt he's an honest trier, but he lacks bowling intelligence and fails to bowl to set fields.
