    Pakistan opted for Shehzad over Fakhar and Umar over Haris. Big blunders.

    Also, should have batted first. They won the toss.

    SA series was quite a good one, and could have gone either way. Some freak performances from South African players were just enough to push them over the line, although Pakistan won the last T20 quite convincingly.

    I won't be surprised if this series is not a mauling though. If we keep the likes of Shehzad, Akmal, Sarfraz and Iftikhar around, we ain't going nowhere.

    Sure. India are no good in T20's but what does that have to do with the ODI format or Pakistan losing to C side of a minnow team. Same Australia C side whitewashed Pakistan in UAE so there's that.

    And here people were bashing Malik despite him consistently finishing our T20I games.

    Enjoy your Shezads, Akmals, Iftikhars and Asifs now.

    Worst T20 batting line in years. Just one proper batsman in top six.

Fakhar can be in the worst form ever but I’d still take him over a gutless Shehzad
    Shehzad has played some superb innings. His maiden hundred in New Zealand, the hundred in South Africa, the hundred against Australia and 150 against New Zealand in Tests are honestly better than Fakhar’s best innings.

    It is a mystery why he hasn’t been able to do it consistently, but he has got the basics right. Fakhar is a nightmare to work with for a batting coach. He is no spring chicken and his technical deficiencies have been hardwired into his system. He simply cannot evolve anymore as a player.

    Shehzad was pretty good before he got knocked out by Corey Anderson. That 170 odd itself was shaping into a big 200. I hope Misbah can help him recover his 2013-2014 touch again. He was no Rohit Sharma but comfortably better than today’s Fakhar.

    Rubbish selections all round. Under Misbah you lot will become minnows in white ball cricket. Arthur, for all his faults, was much better than this guy.

    We are not blessed with too many options. Can’t discard the likes of Shehzad forever.
    I'm not sure how your advanced analysis doesn't take into account the fact that Shehzad has lost it since quite a long time. Has he ever shown any application or improvement whatsoever? The same issues again and again. How long will the likes of you keep hoping against hope that these two losers (Shehzad and Akmal) make anything out of their sorry careers?

    Fakhar Zaman, with one hand and one leg broken, is twice the player Ahmed Shehzad can ever dream to be.

    Point being, these are international sides and absence of few players doesnt make any team a club team. Pak should have won but its not something impossible that Srl team is beating Pakistan in a T20.

    None of those knocks were even as good as Fakhar’s rapid ton at Southampton earlier this year lol. Shehzad getting back to ore 2014 form is extremely unlikely. He has the same problems these past few years and hasn’t improved one bit. Atleast Fakhar plays for the team.

    Oh give up your propaganda for God's sake! Shehzad is AWFUL. He has not done anything at all, AT ALL, to deserve selection and the fact that Misbah has selected him and Umer is an absolute travesty.

    Yes rankings only work and prove it for your best team in the world World.

    The T20 drama was going to blow up anyway, but Misbah will surely accelerate our decline. He has never and will never understand Limited Overs cricket.

    I understand giving Shehzad another go, but persisting with Sarfraz, Asif, Iftikhar, Shadab and Faheem is ridiculous. As a domestic veteran, Misbah should be able to identify better players.

    Check every scorecard of games that PAK won in last few series.

    Either he or Imad always finished our games.

    Apart from that everyone knows Malik is a superb T20 veteran. More reliable than all of today's top 6 (excluding Babar) combined.
