    Hafeez is a much better bowler than Imad - levels appart his ball spin maybe a millimeter more , but he is clever and has control

    Standards must be extremely crappy if hacks like Imad, Faheem, Akmals and hundreds more can get into a national team and play for years. I could have made it as well had I focused a bit in hacking.

    The pitches were belters but they bowled well and so did India. Australia was smashed though. Even in low scoring games, England can hold their own. The likes of Root, Morgan, Bairstow etc. can dig in. Yes they have collapsed a few times but so does every other team.

    I think they are saving Hafeez’s bowling for the wc. I want him to chuck in the wc so it can at least make us take some wickets. Cant rely on trundlers to save our behinds. Hafeez is milesss ahead of crappy Imad.

    Then prof can retire with peace.

    Fakhar is usually good, but Junaid has played enough professional cricket to be competent. He doesn't appear to work hard in the field and his fitness is poor. Shaheen though is understandable - he was playing cricket in his village until 2016, and has very little F/C experience.

    So from the ATG’s to the level of Faheem, Imad. Its been a real shame to see the decline of once a flair team with in your face personalities.

    No wonder nobody takes us serious nowadays. Last world class player that we produced was in 2005 in Asif.

    That is a legitimate dismissal to prevent batsmen from gaining an extra inch. Many batsmen got run out by an inch when they didn't get a head start.

    One thing is clear... if you bowl less than 145 on these pitches then you will go the distance.

    If i remember correctly, the ppers wanted Junaid to play and were criticising Inzi for not playing him. What has happened now?

    Terrible pitches, I sure hope WC wickets are more sporting. This will be the most boring world cup of all time if this trend continues.

    Warning is the norm.

    Otherwise you can stop your run up on every single delivery to see if you can run the batsmen out. Would you be ok with this?

    This is too easy for England. Bowling is below average and England batsmen are too good.

    They are just as guilty as the selectors for playing favorites.

    If it was up to these loonies we'd have Zeeshan Malik opening for us.

    Pace is nothing without line or length. Shinwari would also be annihilated.
