    Zafar Gohar vs Usman Qadir for the 1st ODI vs Zimbabwe

    Shadab has been ruled out of the 1st PAK vs ZIM ODI on Friday because of strain in his left leg, which means its an opportunity for one of these guys.

    Who do you think Pakistan should go with, do they go with a like for like replacement and get Qadir in, or do they select the guy with better performances, which would be Zafar in this format.

    List A averages:

    Zafar Gohar 27
    Usman Qadir 39

    While Usman has improved a lot, those List A stats still aren't great. Watching him in the National T20, he got good turn and has good variations, but I'm not sure he has the control for 10 overs.

    Personally think Zafar deserves a go over him in ODIs.

    Shadab and qadir are abit similar so I'd go qadir
    Imad and gohar are similar hence doesnt give variety

    Gohar is a better bowler than Imad, but Imad is a better batsman, they aren't exactly similar, Zafar gets a lot more turn.

    I want to see Gohar but I am certain they'll pick Qadir.

    Qadir has improved but neither is international class. I hope they prove me wrong.

    Zafar is arguably the biggest turner of the ball in the country.

    I am not sure if it's true but if that's the case we really are in trouble.

    I dont mind either but I think Zafar has worked really hard across the formats in last couple of years so he deserves a go despite the fact that it will make two SLAs but, Imad is slightly unconventional so they definitely wont be similar to face.

    Imad is consistent he will go at 4 4.5 this is very good in this age you also cant say hes better as gohar hasnt played limited overs.in odis you wont get much turn unless it's a spinning pitch which rarely is now. I'd stil have imad in limited overs as he can bowl in the front and in the middle and at the end.

    Should be Zafar Gohar (and should have been for a while now) but it's 99% going to be Qadir

    Well you have Imad and Hafeez.

    Is there a possibility that neither will play?

    Zafar for me. Usman already ditched Pakistan in past to play for Aus. He is back only because no one gave crap about him over there.

    They might go for Faheem as all-rounder. Hafeez hasn't bowled too much in internationals lately, but they could use Iftikhar for the same role.

    Qadir will play. If he has the contacts to get into the national side he has the contacts to get into the XI when the opportunity arises. This is Pakistan at the end of the day.

    Real shame because Zafar really could do with a few opportunities to show what he can do.

    Hafeez has retired from Odis. But yes they might pick a fast bowler instead of Shadab.

    Zafar for sure. Usman has improved and is a decent T20 bowler, but Zafar is better, especially in ODI's.

    Usman included in the 15 member side - could well play as Shadab unavailable.

    Misbah has a grudge against Gohar for the sleeping incident.

    If that was the case why is he in the squad just asking by the way?
