    End of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik's international careers?

    A small comment in the PCB release regarding the T20I squad:

    Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik were not considered as part of the selectors’ forward-looking strategy.

    That's it for their careers then...?

    You never know with the PCB.

    A disaster of a Australian tour and you might see them back.

    Can't be sure of that. If Pakistan go on a losing streak in T20Is, then I wouldn't rule out a recall just before the World T20.

    Agreed, it is a terrible indictment of our system and selection that these 2 have got a decade extra than would be the case anywhere else in the World

    Hafeez took 4/24 today so there is something there.

    Hafeez only needs two back to back scores passing the quarter-century
    mark in domestic cricket and he will be brought straight back into the team and be full of confidence again.

    Malik was actually one of the top performers in this years CPL.

    Not that it should mean a recall for him, far from it, more that you should base your argument on facts.

    please check Malik's performance in the last few game against some very good bowling when the pressure was on. He did have some good performances but we need to look at the whole picture when the pressure was on because those performances matter the most.

    Never say never in Pakistan cricket.

    Anything is possible, nobody is totally out of contention.

    It's quite possible that one of these 2 could be the next ODI skipper.

    I’m waiting for the odds to go to 200 to 1 before I place a small wager on Malik coming back as captain for the T20 World Cup.

    These guys have a had decade long rope for their mediocrity. They should not be recalled in any circumstance.

    Yes, forward-looking strategy is selecting Irfan and Imran Sr.

    Brilliant.

    They already cost Pakistan the World Cup, so it’s a good way to bow out and fully representative of their career.

    Unless they retire they are not going anywhere. I see this tour as a way for Misbah to say we got no talent in Pakistan.

    Mickey Arthur speaking on TV:

    "If Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik are performing, they could be brought back. Certainly room for one of them, if you look at how 3-5 are playing. Hafeez did well for us in UAE against AUS/NZ and then we had Malik at 5 to finish innings with experience. He ran hard and had enough power to hit balls out of the ground so he played an important role. I'm sure those names will be discussed"

    Seems Likely. There are too many holes in Pakistan Batting line up, like Asif Ali.
