    England vs Pakistan | 1st T20I | Manchester | Aug 28, 2020 | Pre-Match Discussion Thread

    Pakistan shortlist 17 players for England T20Is

    Southampton, 21 August 2020:

    Teenage pace sensation Naseem Shah was amongst 17 players Pakistan shortlisted for the three T20Is against England.

    The Babar Azam-led team will play Eoin Morgan’s England at Old Trafford, Manchester, from 28 August to 1 September.

    Pakistan squad for England T20Is: Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, Naseem Shah, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz.

    Pakistan Head Coach and Chief Selector Misbah-ul-Haq: “This is mostly the same team which has been featuring in the shortest format for us. Besides retaining the core, we have inducted youngsters like Haider Ali, who has performed well in the HBL PSL, U19 and first-class cricket, and Naseem Shah as we had an opportunity to keep a bigger pool due to Covid-19 pandemic, which also increases our options. Our two experienced bowlers in Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz have also returned to the side, along with Fakhar Zaman and Sarfaraz Ahmed.

    “Usually, the T20I team comes together for a brief period but due to the current situation most of the players have been here with us for more than a month and it has provided us a good opportunity to work on the development of the team and the young players. So, even the players who might not get an opportunity to play will benefit from the experience they are getting here.

    “It is going to be a competitive series as England are a strong side. We are looking forward to play good cricket and win the series.”

    Hope Shadab plays at top 5. He has proven himself in PSL. Fakhar the hack still gets a place, i would rather have Imam ul Haq in T20 in place of him

    Lets see what Haris Rauf could do here

    Will saifi merit playing time ahead of rizwan.

    Will both Hafeez and malik continue to take spot up in the middle

    How are we shaping our t20 team ahead of b2b world cups. Looks like a real Russe for places atm.

    My preferred team for the world cup would ideally totally different looking at current form I see a core of batting from these players

    Babar will be relied on heavily upon
    Safraz
    Rizwan
    Fakhar can’t be hit and miss
    Imad
    Haider Ali needs to transfer domestic from to international

    Shadab only t20 type batsmen we have

    In dire need of new young blood 🩸 ... too many serial offenders are around.

    A little surprised they went with Wahab over Faheem, but really shouldn't be given Wahab's seniority.

    Bowling attack should be some combination of Husnain, Amir, Shaheen, Rauf, Shadab, Imad and Hafeez.
    Wahab will look good on the bench.

    T20 is a young players game and should be used to scout out talented players and give them a flavour of international cricket and see how they adapt. This is what teams use T20Is for all over the world. Except Pakistan we are continuing to keep has-been players like Malik, Hafeez, Sarfraz and Wahab in the squad.

    Seeing 40-year-olds, mediocre players like Hafeez and Malik in every T20 squad is so disappointing. Now you can add the 35-year-old has been Wahab to that list as well

    I was of the same opinion, but we all saw the way we lost to sri lanka when we didnt have experience. Pakistan will need to play malika and hafeez in t20 cricket. Experience does matter here

    You kidding?

    This squad can potentially field the following team:

    1. Babar Azam (c)
    2. Haider Ali
    3. Shadab Khan
    4. Iftikhar Ahmed
    5. Khushdil Shah
    6. Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk)
    7. Imad Wasim
    8. Wahab Riaz
    9. Mohammad Amir
    10. Haris Rauf
    11. Shaheen Afridi

    The squad is fantastic, the real issue will be the playing XI if Hafeez, Malik, and Fakhar play! Otherwise the squad has an excellent combination of XI mostly young players.

    The lineup you posted is the best that can be extracted from this squad (apart from Fakhar 's exclusion) but we all know what sort of lineup Misbah will field.

    T20 is a batsman's game and there are only 3 batsmen in the current squad that deserve to be selected.

    Babar
    Haider
    Fakhar.

    The rest are all trash and will be horribly exposed in upcoming series. I repeat again, this is the worst T20 squad among top 8 playing nations.

    i don't agree tell me 1 batsman that made debut none.

    you lost because of Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Almal.

    had it been khushdil and any other young batsman their 20-30 runs would have even done the job.

    Babar is the most reliable T20 batsman in the world which allows to insert ultra aggressive batsmen around him. A top 7 of

    Sharjeel
    Babar
    Zeeshan Malik
    Haider Ali
    Shadab/Iftikhar
    Zeeshan Ashraf
    Imad

    will give us a chance at T20 world cup in Aus but misbah's lineup will most certainly be knocked out in first round.

    Did they really need to keep 17 players for 3 t20s??
    They could have at least let Shaheen go back for rest, he has had enough workload, especially now that we dont have a world cup this year.

    Shan showed he can clear the boundary during that long test innings so he's probably got a pretty good point.

    I also note he's one of the only legit captaincy candidates that we have, so we should really be getting him into our teams wherever possible.

    Yep i think Shan is a definite candidate for all 3 formats. Sohail Akhtar was one i liked as a potential opener but i think for a no. 4 i would've liked Umar Amin who i feel has been pushed aside.

    Shan did really well in the PSL. But that was PSL...I'm a huge Shan fan but he should not be playing T20's for Pakistan. His game is just not made for it. He can stick to franchise cricket.

    I would like to see him play ODI's though. I think he would do well there. He is really good with stealing singles & his running between the wickets is excellent. Once he is set, he can smash the ball around as well like we saw in the PSL.

    With misbah the old and senior lover will make sure the seniors are unmoved.

    He was good in his first series by dropping Hafeez and Malik but at the same time gave chances to shehzad and u.akmal which are appalling. Where pak ended losing the series 3-0 to a second string lanka side at their home despite being the number 1 t20 for a year. From there onwards it was clear he is not cut for the job but yet he continues to do the job.

    From this sqaud and with his lover for seniors i feel Haider wouldnt get a chance.

    The 11 probably would be

    Babar
    Fakhar
    Hafeez
    Malik
    Ifthikar
    Rizwan
    Imad
    Shadab
    Amir

    Babar is the best opener in T20 cricket, why would you ever want to move him down. He's the catalyst for this batting line up
    I'd rather Rizwan play at 3, with Khushdil and Ifti lower down the order

    Unfortunately, have to find a place to play 'seniors' Malik and Hafeez

    Both Mohammad Rizwan and Sarfraz Ahmed are not T20 players. Pakistan should select Bismillah Khan as T20 WK

    It seems like you havent been watching Shadab Khan all laughters in the dug out in the current test match. Disgraceful really when the team is on the verge of an innings defeat.

    I would kick out Shadab, the wanna be super star.

    We struggled to defeat 2nd String Sri Lanka at home without Malik and Hafeez.

    Probably would have lost to Bangladesh as well

    so he can't laugh?

    he should sit their and cry for the cameras?

    Why do you guys have problem with people who act natural. WHat difference would it make him sitting in the dugout with tears in his eyes?

    Every team has 2-3 traditional batsmen even in the T20 team. Rizwan and Babar can play that role for Pakistan, Babar to stabilize the top order and Rizwan for the middle order.

    The problem is PCT have to forcefully find positions for 'seniors' Hafeez and Malik, which means you have 4+ accumulators. Thats the real issue. Get rid of Hafeez and Malik, then surround Babar and Rizwan with stroke makers and power hitters. Batting lineup looks a lot better then

    Those 2 should have been sent back home after the Tests. They must be mentally exhausted, having been in the bubble for 3 months now.

    I don't even understand why they were selected. Especially when you have fresh bowlers like Amir, Husnain, Rauf, Wahab, Faheem around.

    An average squad. I really don't see us challenging top teams or doing well in LO with Misbah as coach and selector.

    Just look at how horrible we were under him in LO. We did compete in certain series and win games but the overall style of play and development of players was awful.

    FTP was designed keeping World T20 in mind which was gonna happen later this year. Could it have been changed once ICC knew World T20 isn’t happening, i cant say for sure as number of things are involved including broadcasters, logistics etc.

    Babar
    Haider
    Malik
    Shadab
    Khushdil/ Iftikhar
    Rizwan
    Imad
    Amir
    Shaheen/ Wahab (Considering Shaheen’s fitness post tests)
    Haris Rauf/ Mohammad Hasnain

    If 4 pacers are required, Faheem can play over Khushdil and get moved to no 8. That can give 6 bowling options which can come in handy considering Pak’s spin bowling form.

    This is what I think but, I wont be surprised if Hafeez plays over Khushdil/ Ifti considering his performances against BD in T20s.

    Haider should play all 3 matches in my opinion so only one of Malik and Hafeez can play as you also wanna keep atleast one of Khushdil and Iftikhar as these two are probably the best hitter of the ball lower down the order.

    Both sides are evenly matched. It is 50-50.

    Even though England are resting some main players, they still have Morgan, Billings, Roy, Moeen, Bairstow, and Adil.

    It's 2020 and MoHa and ShoMa are still playing international cricket for Pakistan.

    Are there anyone currently in world cricket who have made their debuts before these two and are still playing ?
