    Just to please you?

    Glad he thought about the team first instead of pleasing you.

    Happy to see that batting display.

    What is notable is that new-ball bowling is just dead. Not many, if any, are taking wickets first up! I mean well played Pak but even we're seeing out the first 10 overs regularly more often than not lately.

    He was leading by example by recognizing his inability to hit long sixes and by sending six hitters in front of him. Excellent captaincy.

    What logic.
    Point is whats his role? When imam got out team needed coltrol freaks for batting..if he doesnt come at 6-7 for slog means he must be playing control but he sent hafeez,if u cant slog cant runa ball whats the point in being part of the team? Pak can do a lot better if thry drop sarfaraz and play bowler or allrounder instead he is just waste of a spot

    Haris has cemented his place in the team for next few years as Malik is already retiring. After WC Sarfaraz will also be removed from the captaincy and most likely from the team as well. Probably Rizwan is gonna replace him after WC. I am more concerned about Hafeez, I dont think he is in a mood to retire. Even if he retires, I don't see anyone in the domestic circuit who can replace him as a permanent option for future years.

    If he thought about the team, he would announce his retirement. It is a complete joke that a rubbish player like him is captain.

    He can very effectively rotate strike. He is the best rotator of strike in the team. However, today match situation required for six hitting when his turn came and therefore he sent six hitters in his place. Do not show your lack of knowledge of cricket its making you look stupid.

    He is captain if he thinks he is good to rotate strike..when pak team was in pickle after imam got out ,he woulf have walked out instead sent hafeez who wasted balls.

    Truth is he himself knows he cant bat

    Solid but I would prefer Sharjeel over Shan of he is available or will keep Imam as an opener. Also If Babar can open we can include Khushdil Shah ot Iftikhar Ahmed in the middle, both are one of the best hitters we have and are proper batsmen and bowl really well as well for a 6th bolwer.

    Today his decisions have been good.

    I see people from a certain region have a go at Sarf even if its his fault or not and then they push for Akmals selection further proves why they are bashing Sarf. Carry on

    Does anyone here think the total can be chased? I think it is extremely unlikely. QDK or Miller will have to tee off for Saffers to have a chance.

    Sarfaraz pulls a reverse Imran by having full faith in his lack of ability & leading the team from the rear... And it was also the right option- at least he recognises how little he offers the ODI team.

    Good last over bowled by SA.

    No. But I am not the chief selector.

    As a captain his decisions have been correct uptill now.

    And how does Shan Masood merit his place in your lineup? He was given his chances
    Atleast we are making some sort of partnership with Fakhar and Imam at the top
