    "There are 7 players in this World Cup squad who will be out of this side soon" : Shoaib Akhtar

    Shoaib Akhtar speaking on his Youtube channel:



    India is a big team and it has played well and won – we should be congratulating India

    We won the Champions Trophy and gave them a drubbing and have won many ODIs against them but its unfortunate that we cant win in the World Cup against them, it doesn’t mean Pakistan is a bad team

    What saddens me is when you don’t use your captaincy, cleverness, smartness and brain

    The problem was that against a very long Indian batting line-up if we don’t bat on a good wicket then we don’t put them under pressure and give them a chance to score big totals then they will do that and you cannot chase 300+

    You do not have a history of chasing large totals

    You knew that in Champions Trophy we won the toss and batted first and so we should have done that this time also

    If Pakistan had batted first, then even we would have made 300 and India would have come under pressure as this was a big game

    We put all the blame on Sania Mirza, If you feel Shoaib Malik’s not performing then take him out of the team

    After the 1999 World Cup, 10 players played for next 10 years for Pakistan

    In contrast, there are 7 players in this World Cup squad who will be out of this side soon

    What type of planning is this? I can’t understand what the PCB is trying to do

    If the PCB is going to throw out players, the along with team officials also those in the board who selected the team should also leave as they are equally responsible

    Through social media we will give you all the intel so that we can’t be made fools of in name of rebuilding process for next 20 years – this will not work

    We will voice our opinions because we want “insaan kay bachay” in the cricket board, a committee who can get a better coach and a strategy can be made for the future

    Look India made a strategy in 2011 which looked at where they wanted to be in 2015

    England were probably the worst team in the world, but they made a strategy to become the best white-ball side, and they are that side today

    Pakistan needs to bring back the right people in order to groom the side

    If you keep on bringing in average people, then you will get average performances

    Until we come away from mediocre people, they will also bring in other mediocre people – remember that

    A mediocre person never likes an extraordinary person as he is better than the mediocre person

    Imam is strokeless. Pakistan need a more dynamic opener and not a minnow basher with limited strokes.

    I mean his job like a lot of the other jaahil ex-players is to basically do matam about team performances, its performance art and it pays well, because it gets clicks. So the more outlandish you can be in you jihalat, the more clicks you get.

    The quality of analysis from all ex-players: body language, positive intent, and intimidation. This is supposed to tell us why the the team failed. if not this, then third gossip about groupings.

    This team needs a clear out. Seeing Sarfraz, Hafeez , Malik , and Wahab out will be a good sign of ruthlessness by the PCB.

    Do you actually see Sarfraz getting dropped? We have seen no sign of it so far.

    I don't think he will be captain after the WC but it's still possible. And somehow I think they will keep him in the team for 'experience.'

    Also I don't know if Wahab will get dropped either.

    I think he will be sacked as ODI captain if we don't get to the semis. Not sure if he will be dropped yet to be honest.

    Wahab will play T20s. Not sure he will be in the ODI or test squad.

    Only seven?

    Apart from Amir, Babar & may be Fakhar (I won't have dropped him) - who should be there?

    Shaheen & Hasnain are young, gets BoD, may be Shadab as well (I won't have kept him). That's 6, at max.

    On what basis Imam, Haris (for his fitness), Malik, Hafeez, Wahab, Hasan, Imad, Asif and the Captain should continue after WC?

    People are talking about dropping players as if Kohli, Root and Morgan are lning up to joing the Pak cricket team! When we compare Fakhar and Imam opening pare with other big teams like Australia, India or England these guys are stll young and need more time to develop! I don't think there is any replacement from them, we have to learn to be a bit patient!

    Commenting like this in the middle of the tournament when he should be motivating the team. I unsubscribed his YouTube channel, he is such a hypocrite and all his viewers are Indians, when Pakistan wins he says itís exactly what he thought and compliments and when Pakistan loses because they didnít follow his tactics. This guy really is shameless.

    The openers should remain. But would you not get out under performing players like Safaraz, Hasan Ali etc out of the team and give chances to others who have proved themselves in the domestic scene? They may turn out to be not that great but i don't see the harm in revamping the squad post WC.

    All he is saying is basically a jab to Inzi without naming him...

    Am I the only one who noticed that? And seven players reference is a jab to Imam mainly... including Iím guessing Sarfaraz, hafeez, Malik, Asif, Hassan..... maybe Imad..

    came across several people especially ex-Pakistani players saddening about not batting first. can't understand the logic regard to this...Just because Pakistan batted first , would all of a sudden the bowling quality of the Indian team become so easier to handle than normal?? It is like saying in general terms that
    win the toss and bat first then Akram would become Agarkar and then match can be automatically won.
    Not saying Indian bowling line up is of the utmost quality but yet would batting first have made it a lot easier all of a sudden? If batting first is the magic to winning matches then what is the purpose of even playing then? .
    Agreed there is a bit of score board pressure but other than that it is all about planning. BAN of all teams(till a few months back they were minnows) showed that even chasing huge score at a critical point is not that difficult and the batsmen involved in that were not great category batsmen either.

    SL team under Ranatunga were masters of chasing and that is how they even won the final in 96. Indian
    team under Dhoni for a brief time period too were specialists in that. So ,all in all , can't get the logic behind this ' could have batted first' .

    Lol it could be true, why doesn't Sachin commentate? I am pretty sure any broadcasting show would love to have him commentate? I am just curious to know. I am sure Sehwag is not selected purely because of who he is as a person and his inability to stay neutral.

    I agree with this, all those whining about not batting first don't realize we did the same thing in overcast conditions against the WI and the result was 74-5. Now even some of the top teams have lost their top order in overcast conditions but still managed to make a decent total.

    Pakistan succumbed one of the worst defeats in World cup history in their first game batting first. If the team is trash you can bowl them bat them, if they are supposed to fail they will fail.

    Imam is not going anywhere.

    Imad and Sarfraz should go. Hopefully we will not do another blunder and make Imad captain of the side.

    Captaincy should go to either Babar or Fakhar.

    What?? Sehwag is always there, International feed does not have Hindi feed that is why you don't see him, Sehwag and Shoaib were always paired together by Star Sports and Shoaib was lobbying for that Hindi/Urdu panel not English.

    Sachin made his commentary debut this world cup, but it is only for few Indian games in World cup, you won't see him do this for every series. If you ask why? Sachin has made 120-150 Million USD in his playing career and still makes few million dollars every year by advertisments and all this is excluding his many business ventures like Restaurants, Gyms, Sports experience arenas etc..

    These 7 players are pretty obvious:

    Sarfraz Ahmed
    Shoaib Malik
    Mohammad Hafeez
    Imad Wasim
    Wahab Riaz
    Hasan Ali
    Asif Ali

    We should keep rest of the 8:

    Mohammad Amir
    Babar Azam
    Fakhar Zaman
    Haris Sohail
    Imam Ul Haq
    Shadab Khan
    Shaheen Afridi
    Mohammad Hasnain
