    Disappointing that Haider and Abdullah Shafique are not in the squad. This was a great chance to get them some international experience. I doubt Hafeez and Iftikhar will be upto it in 2023 for the World Cup.

    I was really looking forward to watching Haider and Abdullah in particular. Really hope they get a chance in the second ODI.

    Chamu Chibhabha, Zimbabwe captain speaking to the media.

    "Personally for me - being in a bio-secure bubble one of the toughest things I have ever had to go go through when preparing for a tour but its time of COVID-19, and we have to do what we have to do to get some cricket"

    "Its fantastic for us [Super League] as that gives us a chance to play against bigger teams - these are teams which we wouldnt normally play against"

    "The security here is amazing; Wev've got presidential security and have nothing to worry about; The only thing we need to be focussing on is cricket; Otherwise security is amazing and I have never been looked after so well as I am being looked after in Pakistan"


    Message to the rest of the world about Pakistan

    "It's safe to play cricket here; the hospitality is amazing, and there is nothing to worry about; We've been having a good time and there hasnt been any complaints at all"

    Video from the training camp today, one of the rarest videos you’ll find. Babar Azam, Imam ul Haq, Haider Ali, and Mohammad Rizwan bowling spin to Shaheen and Rauf, who are in the nets practicing with the bat!

And like you said, you’re right that Abid should have been expected from the moment the initial squad was announced, so fair enough - but that still doesn’t explain why Abid over Haider.
    I agree. I mentioned yesterday that I would prefer Zafar over Qadir as Zafar and Imad are pretty different bowlers to face so the risk of monotonous spin attack was limited in my opinion. However, Qadir was the best young leggy in National T20 cup and is also just 26 so still there is something to gain by developing a back up leggy.

    However when it comes to Abid, he is 33 and will be around 35-36 by the next WC, he is not gonna play any of the world T20 and he hasnt shown some extraordinary skills against spin bowling (Next WC is in India) so I am not sure about his inclusion against. He is a pretty good player and it wont be surprising if he scores runs if given oppurtunities but I am not sure if he is the best investment currently.

    The only logic for Abid I can think of is that when in early 2019 there weren’t many white ball top order options available and Fakhar was rested he didn decently against Aus with a century and averages 47 in 4 matches with 1 100 and a 50. So I think it would have been bad to give an impression of dropping an older player just because he is 33 and selecting younger players who performed in domestics straight over him. So I think management has to think about signals as well which they send to other players around. Thats the only thing I can think of.

    Babar can bowl. Not sure why he doesn’t back himself and throw a few overs in? He got his action tested also so he is all clear

    Messaging is definitely important, it has a huge effect on team morale. But you can also send a message that youíre resting your top players, canít you? Iím sure if someone told Abid that look itís Zimbabwe, we want to give Haider a shot, he wouldnít have minded at all. So I can understand the logic if it were against New Zealand, but I doubt any player in their 30ís thinks itís important to get match time against Zimbabwe?

    They seem okay, to be honest, Iím not sure theyíll ever bowl internationally unless one of the other bowlers is injured mid-match. So itís good theyíre rolling their arms over. Who knows, maybe with enough practice they can even become decent part timers?

    Misbah's selections have taken me to the point that I can't even bother to start picking out the problems in the squad because it is the same cluelessness and stupidity all over again with no logic to back them.
    @Thunderbolt14 @Mueez @Square Drive have already said enough and the only thing I'll add here is... I CALLED THIS A YEAR AGO!!! MISBAH WILL DESTROY PAK LOIs CRICKET!!!

    Shaheen and Rauf to take the new ball.

    Hasnain should be the third pacer over Wahab Riaz.

    Barring a collapse, I will demote Babar down the order and let Rizwan, Shadab, and Khushdil bat first.
    I'm in with that squad. Banging choices bro!

    No Haider, no Abdullah and no Zafar. Meanwhile we get to watch Abid Ali and Faheem Ashraf. And this is Zimbabwe mind you.

    To anyone interested in our 2023 WC campaign, this should be criminal.

    Usman Qadir doesn't merit a position over Zafar under any criteria. He is the better spinner, fielder and batsman too.

    Also, what is Wahab doing there when he will be 38 come 2023?

    Abid Ali already can't lay bat on ball against any decent bowler and we think he will do okay at the age of 36 in India against the very best the world has to offer.

    Fakhar is living off one innings or let's push it and say the initial year with heavy helping from feasting on the likes of Zimbabwe. He will be 33 as will Iftikhar, who again seems to get into every squad without doing anything.

    Haris will be 34 and so will Imad. Both have woeful fitness levels today and it will only get worse. I mean can anyone really say that they see both of them making it to 2023, especially Haris? What happens when he drops out to one injury or another?

    I should also stress these are their official ages.

    And we should also keep in mind that we play around 25 ODIs before the WC as things stand now. Not a lot.

    Again this is Zimbabwe.
    Misbah never played to win in ODI'S. it was always about losing respectfully. So he's actually preparing a team which can make quarter final in 2023 and lose to one of top 4/5. Thats my reading of him at least

    But there's no reason tooo. We've ruined so many players by giving them random roles. Why was Umar Akmal made a power hitter? There is absolutely no reason to make Haider and Babar bowl in matches. None of the great batsmen bowled and there is no reason to divert their attention from batting and bring it to bowling and batting.

    They should consider opening with Rizwan so they can make room in the middle order for Khushdil Shah.

    My 11:
    1) M Rizwan
    2) Abid Ali
    3) Babar Azam
    4) Haris Sohail
    5) Iftikhar Ahmed
    6) Khushdil Shah
    7) Imad Wasim
    8) Imran Qadir
    9) Shaheen
    10) Haris Rauf
    11) Musa Khan

    Wahab will not make it to the next world cup so no point stringing him along. Really hope Abdullah, Haider play the next 2 games and Husnain/Gohar get at least a game

    I donít mind them not including Haider and Shafique for the odis given that they donít have much experience yet, but they should both play every t20 otherwise it defeats the purpose of a tour like this.

    Since Misbah became the selector IFTHIKAR plays in all formats from nowhere. Under Mickey and Inzi he was not even considered for any format.

    As I said earlier in many threads. Expect nothing from Misbah , he was a poor captain once and now a poor selector cum coach.


    He is not going to give chances to haider ali and Abdullah Shafique against second string Zimbabwe at home series. Which is well known these two are selected for eyewash. Misbah will destroy all young careers, keep this guy away from the national team as far as it can be.

    Yes that’s the culture cultivated by Misbah and Afridi

    Afridi kept Selecting shehzad
    Misbah keeps Ifthikar
    Sarfraz kept nawaz
    Babar keeps Qadir

    Ridiculous. These series are meant to try youngsters or at least the bench strength. Misbah plays a first 11 with full strength along with those dead woods. If the bench strengths are not tried then TTFs wil, stay and make comebacks.

    I mean they're even scared of Zimbabwe

    BA is saying "can't take anything for granted"

    and than the blunder with squad

    They didn't play young guys ok but atleast let them play first class

    Either go full young or full experience (for this series) but the middle b* is so annoying

    Young guys to satisfy social media, old guys cause they're scared of losing

    Yes I really think in his heart of hearts he is scared of losing his job and he thinks if he loses to zim it's over

    I can hundred percent guarantee you Pakistani first class is way tougher than zim

    If they're first class material they're good enough to play against zim
