    I would want


    1. Saud
    2. Khushdil
    3. Wahab &
    4. Haris Rauf


    to be added to the camp.



    Khushdil needs to score another fifty or two and than he will be challenging Asif Ali.
    Best thing about khushi is he is finishing matches and that too dead lost matches he is making alive

    its his SR. In 2019, a SR of 80 just isn't good enough, especially for an opener.

    That said, I think he should still be opening with Fakhar, but his SR is a concern

    Hoping they actually drop players for fitness and we give a chance to Khusdil and Iftikhar for Imad and Haris.

    Never too late selectors should look for something like:

    Fakhar
    Imam
    Babar
    Sarfraz WK
    Hafeez
    Iftikhar/Khusdil
    Asif Ali
    Faheem Ashraf
    Shadab Khan
    Hassan Ali
    Shaheen Afridi

    Malik
    Usman Shinwari
    Wahab
    M Rizwan WK

    Hafeez/Babar can play the role of backup opener.

    I expect to come a dip and loss of focus after this for some players who were wanting to make into the probables.

    They should have done this hardwork earlier instead of assuming that a couple of good performances a week before the WC squad has to be announced will be enough for them to get on the plane to England.

    That’s a valid point.

    However it is the typical Pakistani mentality...

    Top players in the competition have been performing for a while. Iftikhar, Khushdil and Wahab have been playing well for over a year. People have only seen their performance in this tournament because it's televised and their was interest due to world cup selection, can't blame the players at all. Inzimam has always done this - South Africa series chose the team then hid from reporters sent a video message, Australia series selected the team in the middle of the PSL (Ahmed Shehzad was a threat to Imams opening slot), once again calling players for the fitness test without letting the tournament finish.

    The talented all-rounder Imad Wasim suffered an injury ahead of the World Cup as he twisted his knee during a practice session.

    According to sources, the left-handed slow arm bowler and the hard-hitting batsman is currently undergoing a rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy.

    In order to book a berth in the World Cup squad, Imad Wasim will have to clear the fitness test, which will take place on April 15 and 16 in the supervision of the national selections committee.

    If he fails to clear the fitness test, he may not become a part of Pakistan’s World Cup squad, which will take place from May 30 to July 17 in England and Wales.

    While Pakistan will face off England, from May 5th, in the one-off T20I and a five-match ODI series in their backyard, which is essential for Men in Green’s preparation for the mega cricketing event.

    Pakistan’s likely World Cup Squad and Squad for Odi series vs England


    Openers :

    1. Fakhar
    2. Imam
    3. Haris


    Middle Order Batsmen :

    4. Babar
    5. Hafeez if he passes fitness test/Rizwan
    6. Malik
    7. Asif Ali


    8. Sarfraz Ahmed (wk) (C)


    Allrounders :

    9. Imad Wasim (Unless his knee injury is too serious)
    10. Faheem Ashraf
    11. Shadab Khan


    Fast Bowlers :

    12. Hasan Ali
    13. Shaheen Shah
    14. Usman Shinwari
    15. Mohammad Amir


    Reserves who will be part of Odi series vs England & WC. Will travel to UK


    16. Shan Masood
    17. Mohammad Nawaz
    18. Mohammad Hasnain



    Note :

    1. Abid Ali will most likely fail the fitness test for the second time. So He won’t be picked. But If he scores 50 odd in final of Pakistan Cup & follows keto diet for a month He could replace any injured player in WC squad before 23rd May 2019.


    2. If Wahab Riaz gives match winning performance in Pakistan Cup final than he can replace any injured pacer before 23rd May. Wahab has lost some weight Post PSL and is inform taking a fivefer in List A after 8 years and is bowling 150 kph.


    3. Iftikhar Ahmed also has an outside chance to be late entry into squad. While Khushdil chances are grim unless somehow he replaces injured Imad or Nawaz during England Odi series and clicks. Iftikhar has more chance since he has already Tasted Int Cricket.


    4. Haris Sohail will be play in middle order but incase Imam or Fakhar get injured or have 2-3 poor games than Haris will be promoted to Open.

    My only change would be to get Junaid instead of Usman Shinwari . . He offers nothing to dhte team . . at least on a cloudy day if the conditions aid swing/seam bowling, Junaid could be a decent addition . . So I would have Junaid instead of Shinwari . .

    This is just none sense, Haris and Imam are not ODI players. Shoaib Malik and Amir are a big gamble haven't done anything for 2-3 yrs, what makes them think they will randomly start performing when the competition will only get tougher. Where did Nawaz come from, he's being outplayed by Khushdil and Iftikhar much rather they come in the team - we need proper allrounders not tail enders who can bat.

    Should go with

    Imam (since he wont be dropped)
    Fakhar
    Babar
    Sarfraz WK
    Hafeez
    Iftikhar / Khushdil (try both see if any one of them perform and could be a late addition for the world cup)
    Asif Ali (7 is the best position for him, late order quick blitz)
    Faheem
    Shadab
    Hassan
    Shaheen

    These 3 should fight for 2/3 backup bowling spots
    Wahab
    Shinwari
    Hasnain

    M Rizwan WK (backup middle order spot + keeper)
    Malik (Should be benched we know he won't be dropped completely)


    Imad and Haris should be dropped due to fitness, if youre going to drop Abid Ali then make the rules fair for everyone

    So you want to drop Haris .. the player who just scored 2 centuries at a decent rate because he 'isnt an ODI player'. And then you mention that he should be dropped due to fitness even though he passed the last fitness test and will likely pass the upcoming one? (ofcourse if he fails, he is out).

    Great logic.

    Haris, Imad, Abid Ali, Yasir Shah failed the test.

    Haris is being considered as a backup opener, you can easily slot Hafeez as an opener or use Babar Azam (pretty effective in T20s and utilizing the power play). Give me one game where Haris performed and we won.

    Clearly he scored 2 centuries and we still lost, don;t question logic, you clearly are a stats man.

    He is a better bowler than Juanid, Shinwari, Amir etc etc.

    Yes, he can perform much better than Hasnain as Haris has much more control. I just don't know how Inzi can't see that.

    Though Haris is more polished but i believe Hasnain is quite good too and is a quick learner. I will select both in the WC.

    Don't select both for worldcup. Inexperience and pressure of performing at big stage will do no good for both of them.
    Hasnain is younger than Harris and quicker too. That's why they have selected him above harris. But i do feel that after world cup both will be in Pakistan team along with shaheen and hassan

    I like Hasnain as well but I doubt Inzi will go for two youngsters so I believe it'll be one or the other.

    This is judgment issue(Competence), their test performance has clouded Inzi's thinking or test stature, since these two are Pakistan's top bowlers in test. Pakistan has history of taking test stars to WC, for no reason. YK last WC was prime example...Its mixed of both, but I don't see any sign of "Corruption" ( A word over used and abused in Pakistan...

    Good to hear, this means we can drop Usman Shinwari any time we want during the England ODI series and he isn't fixed for WC yet.

    spot on..hur cheeze corruption..Inzi is a bit old school when it comes to selection in some areas like bowling. And Ive heard this from many others in the media who think the same way..the theory is that if you can bowl 20 overs consistently and take wickets in a harder form of cricket like test cricket, then clearly you have the skills to do it in a less harder form of cricket like ODI..

    I disagree because it may have been the case a decade or more ago but not now..the reason is because of the field placings and the pressure..in test cricket you can take a good 5 overs to get in some rhythm..also your captain can give you three slips and a gully for as many overs as he wants..you can bowl short deliveries knowing you have some cover around..in ODI's there is hardly any margin of error left now..and batsman can go for it knowing they dont need to worry about fielder outside of the circle..you only need to clear them..

    therefore once they get their eye in they will simply tee up Abbas..even if he is bowling good balls..you know you can get an edge and it wont go to third slip..a cover drive and a couple of edges and its 12 from the over..Abbas under pressure and sarfi having to move his field around..

    Other than Babar Azam there is hardly a batsman who has guarantee fair spot. All others are at same level and have glaring short comings... Fakhir is hack, who is failing left and right. Inam and Harris are too slow, eats up too many dot balls and don't have big short...Abid, we have seen very little to sure of his caliber...Its less of corruption issue more of lack of talent(there are structural and other issues which has to do with PCB and state of Pakistan than Corruption)...Now Pakistanis have new favorite C bucket, everything is corruption, lets wait till some body will fix with Magic Wand and then we will prosperous

    If we start picking top 6 batsmen on their strike rates, by that logic, we should be scoring 300 plus in every ODI. But that doesn’t happen. There is no combination of batsmen from Pakistan that will guaranteed give you such totals consistently. We have to look for stability and there is some give and take involved.

    You can pick 100+ SR batsmen and you will end up with people like umar akmal, Awais zia types who would score a flashy 30-40 every few games at run a ball but would fail to score even that in other games.

    all I said is a SR of 80 for a modern day opener is a concern, I am not saying SR should be the only criteria - that would be rather idiotic

    It says that 22 probables have done the test. Nawaz did it before. So doesn't that mean Imad has already done it?

    ICC World Cup 2019: Mohammad Rizwan tops yoyo test

    Preparations of Pakistan team for the ICC World Cup 2019 are at full swing, as players under went fitness test ahead of their departure for UK on April 23.

    The Sarfaraz-led unit is all set to face England in five-match One Day International (ODI) series and only T20I before the mega tournament.

    The think tank of the Men in Green along with the Head Coach Mickey Arthur are giving final touches to their squad for the tournament.

    With reports arriving from National Cricket Academy (NCA) Lahore stated that the wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan scored highest, 20 points, in the YoYo test.

    The 26-year-old proved his fitness on the first day of the two-day fitness camp and became a strong contender to travel with the team to the UK by backing his two centuries against Australia with his fitness.

    Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed and left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir have also passed their fitness test with 18 points each. Fast bowler Hasan Ali and opener Shan Masood bagged 19 points in the test as they are highly likely to travel along with the team on April 23.

    Pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi, all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, middle order batsman Asif Ali, leg-spinner Shadab Khan, all-rounder Faheem Ashraf, and pacer Usman Shinwari also cleared the test.

    On the other hand, the all-rounder Imad Wasim, leg-spinner Yasir Shah, and emerging pacer Mohammad Husnain failed to touch the fitness benchmark of 17.4, which can put their participation in next month’s tournament in jeopardy.

    Earlier, the team management made it clear that those players who fail to clear the test will not be selected for the World Cup in England and Wales.

    The chairman selection committee Inzamam-ul-Haq will announce the squad on April 18 after analysing the fitness level of the players.

    Both Micky and Inzi should be grilled about selecting Yasir in ODI series in Australia. He failed in fitness test back then and still got selected, play 5 ODI and also being probable in World Cup squad.

    This should have been done long ago, if it was the plan. No chance now, especially in England. S Malik and M Hafeez can at best be expected to bowl 10 in Asia where they can get away with it, but not here I don't think any team will respect them and these 10 overs could cost us seriously, also we should keep in mind that one of them dosen't want to bowl which was proven when he was made the captain and other is returning from and injury and a continuously remodeled bowling action.

    I don't think management would do this in a event like WC, or at best will use Haris Sohail as a bowling replacement for Imad through an experiment in the England ODI series, who still ain't that experienced and could take a beating.

    Most likely outcome would be, they will take Nawaz in place of him, who in no way is a able replacement. Gladly, Yasir has failed too at the fitness test and have reduced his chances severely. They can also pick 4 pacers, by playing Faheem who is a all-rounder by name.

    if they are series about playing in the CWC they should have shown their fitness and performances much earlier and not in 2019 PSL or pak cup... this applies to players who are looking for a comeback..

    His batting is overrated. In 2016 it seemed he could do the job at no 4 or 5 but those 2 positions are jam packed.

    He is not a finisher. With a bit more planning and insight he could have easily replaced Malik back in 2016. Starting from the ENG series 2016.

    But PAK cricket....

    He may not be the best, but looking at our AR options, if he doesn't play, then we will have a long tail as I don't think Faheem and Shadab can be trusted as all-rounders. While Hafeez with his new action and Haris Sohail can only bowl 5 overs each if our main bowler get smashed, while Malik is nothing with bowl nowadays, hence, Imad is the only safe 5th bowling option who can be trusted to bowl more overs when required and bat aswell if needed.

    What kind of a schedule is this?

    We are playing around 5 ODI matches against England,

    And 5 days later we are playing the world cup.

    I think the fitness will be exposed for a lot of the players and these 15 players might not make it through the whole schedule

    Practice matches don't count.
    The first wc match is 14 days after the 5th odi.
    Also the gap between the matches is not small so they'll get enough rest in between.

    Really difficult to tell which of these are accurate...

    This will be Paks 15.
    What exactly has shaan masood done to get into your 15? He failed miserably in 5 innings in UAE.

    It's not MY 15.

    Going by media reports and news I'm thinking that might be the 15.

    Replace Asif Ali with Malik

    Need few changes to make it far better. Abid Ali for Shan Masood, Junaid Khan for Usman Shinwari, Umar Akmal for Asif Ali and Hasnain for Shadab khan. No point to take too many spinners in England. Hafeez and Haris can easily bowls at least 7-8 overs if not a full 10 overs together.

    Imad doesn't even spin the ball.

    Mohammad Hafeez was never the same after not being able to chuck

    Haris barely bowls.
