    Didn't the low ranked side beat india in a t20 recently ?
    It's only cricket , don't cry.

    If you or others havent realized ranking system of T20 is exactly same as Tests and ODIs.

    Also winning in Aus without them having Smith and Warner wasnt fake? But Malik playing for Pakistan and Pak ranking is fake? Talk about double standards.

    There has been no struggle from the moment Malik walked out. This chase has been a breeze.

    Indian team in various format is full of 30+ players, and not long ago Dhoni was playing. Tendu also played for a long time for India. So whats your point ?

    This is a Bangladesh team playing without their 2 best players, we should not be relying on a Malik fluke to win this.

    Pakistan during the 2017-18 period was at best the fourth strongest T20 side. India was always way stronger and we were lucky not to play them. It would have been a repeat of the 2018 Asia Cup humiliation.

    India will have to drop 4-5 main players for Pakistan to compete with them over a series of matches in any format.

    England and a full-strength Australia were also better. We were probably better than New Zealand and South Africa for a brief period but it doesnít mean much.

    This notion that Misbah has ruined the T20 team is just an excuse. That Mickey and Sarfraz drama was going to be over soon. They got lucky that they were removed before the WT20 season began.

    The reality check that they were going to receive in T20Is was going to be even more brutal than the reality they received in ODIs after the Champions Trophy.

    I'm glad Misbah realizes how poor we are in T20s and the rankings were FAKE.

    We do need Kami and Umar in the side, kick out Malik, Riz, Imad too probably.

    They are both not world class players. Hafeez especially should be the first one to be shown the door after his legendary WC 2019 campaign where he kept getting out to Williamson, Finch, Pandya...

    India are moving on from Dhoni, and we are selecting and winning thanks to Malik and Hafeez.
    Do you think that Malik will perform the same way against better teams in Australian conditions during the WT20 ?

    I sense that Cricket passion among Pakistanis have dropped. In Karachi there aren't many parks, not many kids playing in streets as they were 10+ years ago, not much club Cricket either. And with the rise of mobile phone and games, children here tend to prefer that and there is no real push from many parents to play outdoor sports.

    In a short game like T20 there always one or two major contributions that wins the match. Had Malik failed Imad , Iftikhar would have played a different kind of game, and there was always Rizwan and Shadab

    (And these whining folks are also those who wanted Mickey Arthur's team back, i.e. Malik & Hafeez & Sarfraz.)
    @Titan24 , the wrist slitting circus has started. ;)


    I'm glad Misbah realizes how poor we are in T20s and the rankings were FAKE.

    We do need Kami and Umar in the side, kick out Malik, Riz, Imad too probably.
    As if we won the game around 15 overs with loss of 2-3 wickets. Let us play with better team and you see how bad we will be.

    His domestic T20 sr is 104. Pak needed someone with bit more shots at the top in T20s which management is expecting from Ahsan Alo.

    The perpetual mediocrity of Pakistan cricket will eventually take its toll on the passion of the fans. Once the euphoria and excitement over matches hosted in Pakistan wears off, we will probably see a lot of empty seats.

    Apart from Babar, there is hardly any player who is worthy of watching.

    Was this pitch purposefully made slow?!

    Hopefully the next one is more batting friendly and creates cracker of a game.

    India are moving on from Dhoni, and we are selecting and winning thanks to Malik and Hafeez.
    Do you think that Malik will perform the same way against better teams in Australian conditions during the WT20 ?
    If you can't answer my question it's useless to write paragraphs on other issues.

    I am sorry but why exactly must we be happy about your achievements? We are your arch rival, if you expect us to hold hands and sing kumbaya you will be dissapointed.

    We should give credit where it us due and that's about it.
