    Abid Ali deserves more chances. It was unjust for a man who scored a ton against Australia on debut and then to be treated like the way he did was quite frankly disgraceful. He was only given 3 ODIs before the WC. I'm not saying he's definitely good enough to make the XI but he deserves a proper chance.

    Another potential replacement is Sharjeel Khan who was an asset for Pakistan (prior to his ban).

    Are we just assuming Babar can keep because he has Akmal blood?

    Babar needs to open for PAK. Modern LO game is built on momentum at the top and his game is perfectly suited for power play, it makes a left-right combo as well. Today PAK is failing to post 300+ only because of the slow start in PP. also, openers need to convert, which Babar can do. On 300 per tracks, and in current playing condition many openers can manage a 40/75 sort of stats - need more punch at the top.

    Not a bad score. Pakistan should defend this comfortably.

    This is what I have been saying since this year's PSL that Iftikhar should be in the LOI squads of Pakistan, one of the few big hitters we have.

    No he is terrible. Any decent side would not have bowled those rubbish slower deliveries in his arc.

    Not a big fan of Akmal, but him or Asif should be the number 6 for us. With Haris and Babar, we have much needed stability now in the batting.

    Masterclass batting performance by PAK. SL will struggle to 200 here.

    306 - should be enough, unless it feed heavily. These type of wickets gets ideal for batting with a little sprinkling. PAK need to cash on new ball, otherwise under dew two semi old balls will come nicely on bat. Ifthekhar looks to be settled for 2023 WC - need to bowl lot then.

    Now that is a complete middle order batsman that can finish. I think he's the best one we have at no. 5.

    Pradeep is the mainstream Srilankan pacer in ODIs. Iftikhar hit some pretty good bowlers in PSL for sixes as well, highlights are easily available.

    Iftikhar can bowl as well and can play as a innings builder as well (He has got 11 FC 100s for a reason). Asif Ali cant provide inning stabilization when required and doesnt ball as well however he should be in the radar and should play T20s.
