    Indian fans trolling us now haha.

    Anyone who’s watched the innings closely will note how many there were several edges and ‘lapaaru’ shots which he wants in control of.

    Great character and lot of bravery but to have expectations of a world class all rounder is foolhardy

    Babar, Rizwan, Shadab, Faheem and Shaheen Shah.. The Core.
    Add Naseem and Hasnain.. just find one more young spinner under 25 to replace yasir.
    Pakistan will dominate 2020-2030.. good times.

    Why would Indian fans troll when they just suffered 36 AO humiliation and just came from a thrashing from this New Zealand side? Not to forget both Windies and England have suffered innings defeat against this same team. New Zealand at home is an absolute BEAST in test cricket. Faheem Ashraf has played an innings which will be remembered by the cricketing world in a long time. The Faheem Ashraf era has ARRIVED! The future captain of Pakistan team

    Tell me, do you honestly think Misbah would have told Faheem to go out there play with this type of positive mindset? If yes, why didn't he tell the same thing to other batsmen who were just tuk tuking until they get out?

    I have been saying this again and again, Babar Azam should NEVER have been given captaincy in any format. I am afraid we will lose Babar Azam the batsman due to captaincy pressure. We all know the history of how captains are treated in Pakistan after losing a match or a series.

    It’s more that Indians are anxious and insecure to see a young Pakistani doing well. So trolling is a coping mechanism.

    Did you watch the ATG Williamson’s innings? Even he had a couple of edges / chances.

    Faheem played against a higher quality attack, after a top order collapse, with scoreboard pressure. Yet you’re begrudging him getting a few edges in his innings.

    He hit 15 fours. Dude had McCullum impressed with his strokeplay. Pull-shot and cover drive was working.

    I think it ends now too.

    Showed too much faith in Shaheen by taking a single on the first ball of the over, thus leaving shaheen vulnerable to face 5 deliveries.
    Shaheen crapped out on the third ball and everything fell apart in the next two overs.

    Lack of basic game awareness

    Shades of Ricky Ponting in that pull shot

    Seriously, well done Faheem for playing a brilliant knock under extreme pressure and saving face with Rizwaan. Thoroughly deserved a century but oh well, it was a great knock regardless.

    If can maintain some sort of consistency with the bat, he will be an asset to Team Pakistan no doubt.

    I wonder what the expert coach Younis scribbled in his book.

    ‘Dear diary.

    An amazing turn of events today when Faheem started going against the strategy and actually played shots. We managed to get some runs. Note for the next training session - let’s get the boys practising shots. I wonder if the camera is still on me.’

    In all likelihood he wont replicate such performances in the future. At least not consistently. There are glaring issues in his technique. Massive holes there to be exploited by smart bowlers.

    However i want to be pleasantly surprised.

    Faheem averages better in test cricket than pandya with both bat and ball.
    Faheem 32 and 26 with bat and ball respectively
    Pandya 31 with bat and ball.

    You updated his batting but not his bowling. Faheem averages 32 with both bat and ball and not 26 with ball as you mentioned. So Faheem 1 run better in batting but one run worse than Pandya in bowling as Pandya averages 31 with ball.

    Tbh sample size is really small, you can’t do any statistics on such a small sample size

    Faheem is not a tailender the way people treat him. This comparison could be very close unlike in white ball cricket. Will be interesting to see this in 5 years

    One good innings and people think he’s the next Imran Khan.

    He is still a hopeless bowler and even worse batsmen. This one innings will keep him in the tram for years but he is definitely not worthy of wearing a Pakistan shirt. Saying that most of that batting line up isn’t

    I remember the same threads for zulqarnain haider when he played a similar type of innings
    And obviously abid ali with his centuries

    He does look in good form and has just carried on from his heroics in the t20
    Does a very similar role to jamieson who had a briliant game for new zealand and Colin de grandhomme who also performs for nz

    Yeah definitely a reactionary thread. Reactionary comments from YK also who should be nowhere near the Pak team setup. Not sure Faheem deserves a place in the current Pak team let alone the fact that Ammad Butt looks like the better all rounder. Well done to him though. Hopefully teaches the other batters a thing or two about positive thiking.

    Mohammed Yousuf should be batting coach, Wasim Akram bowling coach, Micky Arthur head coach and Gary Kirsten as chief selector

    Wasim flick of the wrist Akram knows nothing about coaching. He can is a good manager and mentor, but he will never be a good technical coach.

    On a serious note, if he can bat like this all the time, he's gonna be a lock for all overseas tests. Probably home tests too when we prepare dustbowls.

    But in fairness Faheem has been a a very useful player for us in SENA. Same for Shadab. Nothing extraordinary but they have provided us with good utility.

    I think if he can average 30 with both bat and ball it'll be a decent enough career for him.

    But after looking at some stats, it's not that hard to compete with them 2. Their stats aren't Earth shattering. Stokes averages 38 with the bat and 31 with the ball. Holder averages 32 with the bat and 28 with the ball. Still though I don't think Faheem will have a batting average of 38 or a bowling average of 28. 30 average in both is acceptable.

    Well pacy can answer for himself but Wasim doesn't even understand how and why the ball swings, why certain styles, techniques and conditions produce the results that they do. One example, according to him the ball reverses because one side is heavier than the other, if weight would produce horizontal motion then a ball placed on the table would keep moving sideways. Coaching isn't about telling a player do this and that and you will get this and that. You have to know how to teach and every student is different, you need to have proper knowledge first in order to relay it effectively. Then there is the analysis part of the game, do you think Wasim can break down a young student's action and explain where he is losing pace, what are the points of stress on his body and what possible adjustments he can make to avoid injury and add pace?

    He can always tell how to flick the wrist to get that sweet swing

    Talent is there but no game awareness. He was batting well but when fielders were on boundaries it was just a matter of time before he was out. Technically batting is lacking. He's good enough for red ball for our mid table team. Pandya is different class and stokes is to pandya what pandya is to faheem, a tier above

    Faheem is better than Hasan Mohsin. Ammad Butt is a number 9 with the bat, Faheem is a number 8. Similar bowling.

    Faheem’s competition is actually Hassan Ali. Better bowler, not as good of a batsman. But as an all round package, both have similar utility (or maybe an edge to Hassan because he’s a genuine bowler)

    Batting at 7/8 dont really neee to work on the technical stuff his job is to really put bat to ball and provide lower order runs

    hes good enough to bat at 8 maybe 7 in future and good enough as 3rd 4th seemer

    Trolling aside, whether it's apparent or not, it's only been one innings. It was a very good one in terms of the context of the game considering Pak batting was in dire straits, but at the very least for the time being it's shown that Faheem should be persisted with in test cricket.

    Faheem should have been a number six in white-ball cricket , the management should have used him as a batting all rounder.

    He had numerous opportunities in limited overs cricket previously and consistently failed. It was only in test cricket last season after working with M Yousaf at the NCA that he finally improved his batting and actually scored some runs.

    Faheem has already stated he is a bowling All rounder even tho it's clear he has more batting ability, a natural batsman

    He needs to start batting in the top 5 for his domestic teams, FC and List A

    Open in T20s

    His bowling is not yet that level that he can be a bowling all rounder.

    As you said his batting is a stronger suit. And I agree he needs to bat up the order , Pakistan can have a very deep batting in white ball cricket if players are properly developed. No specialist all rounders but good utility players like Shadab , Nawaz , faheem , Imad etc.
