    [VIDEOS] Saim Ayub in PSL 2021 Performance Watch

    Highly-rated 18 year old Saim Ayub getting his first taste of PSL today.

    Batting at 4 for Quetta, and with 2 early wickets he's into the innings in the 3rd over.

    Lot of eyes will be on him to see how he does.

    Wasted a lot of deliveries, very poor innings.

    Could hardly hit it off the square.

    You have a guy like Gayle batting with you, yet you don't give him the strike.

    Ayub tries to accelerate and pulls it straight into the hands of deep square leg.

    Unsuccessful PSL debut for him, just 8 runs from 14 balls

    He should open the innings for QG in my opinion or max at no 3. Slotting a young top order batsmen in middle order is not the best way to groom one. Looked stylish though in the end it was a non impactful knock but, then again his first match at such a stage so would have been nervous as well.

    If he is to be played then opening is the spot for him.

    There isn't any place apart from that really especially if he's paired with an aggressive guy at the top like Banton.

    He is picked from emerging category and one emerging player has to play. Abdullah Shafique was in gold since he has already debuted for Pakistan in T20s.

    Saim is yet to debut in FC cricket for his region. Though he was the highest scorer in U19 3 day tournament and QG must have seen something in him which made them pick him. There were few options from emerging category which have made their debut for their regions this year or last year who would have possibly find it easier to adapt but, Saim comes with a decent reputation from junior cricket so lets see if he can adapt to this level directly without any domestic cricket before this.

    Nothing wrong with his innings yesterday. As a commentator added above, he seemed to be showing signs of a strong foundation (playing under his eyes etc). T20 is just an extension of the foundational cricket. All he really needs to do is open up a bit more.

    Definitely one for the future

    When the likes of Naseem get hammered, people say that we shouldn't rush to decisions so quickly.

    Why does that not apply for Saim Ayub?

    Doesn't look like a T20 player but you never know what confidence can do. The example of Rizwan is in front of you.

    Compact isn't exactly one of the assets a batsman really needs in T20s though is it.

    By that logic, Babar Azam and Kane Williamson should have given up at the start of their t20 career.

    Showed decent technique and looked like he could time the ball well but overall the vibe was that he has been thrust into the game too soon. Looked like club cricketer making a straight jump to FC, yes there's some potential there but the
    sudden difference in level was apparent.

    Saim Ayub shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as Babar Azam and Kane Williamson.

    There is compact and there is brilliant.

    Babar Azam and Kane Williamson were on a different level to Ayub.

    Once again, surprised by that statement Saj. I'd much rather take a batsman who's compact and fundamentally strong over a noncompact player. Sure there are your exceptions (Fawad, Chanderpaul, Smith) but as I said earlier, T20 cricket is an extension of the basics.

    It's obvious, not sure what's surprising. Being compact doesn't get you the match-winning knocks in T20s. A compact batsman in the shorter formats will at best be ok at times in a supporting role.

    If T20 batting was about being compact then the likes of Azhar Ali would be playing in the PSL.

    He is 18 and should be given many more chances, the more he plays with Gayle and co the more he will learn. I also read in a thread here yesterday that Gayle was praising him, so he is doing something good.

    Already looking more comfortable opening. Though last game he came in at 2.4 overs and batting most of the powerplay, is it that much different? I never really understood why it's different for the opener compared to the #3 coming in the first over, for example.

    Not a T20 player for sure. He really needs to work with a proper batting coach if he wants to be national team either ODI or Test. He failed to grab the 2 chances, most likely he will be dropped from next matches.

    Mentality is very different. There can be a mental block if there are two wickets already down so quickly and a second mental block if youíre playing out of position (even if itís not so different). Then thereís the fact that he was debuting, and the fact that it was the opening match of the tournament. Wasnít surprised at all to see him nervous and eventually give his wicket away.

    Gets out right now as well, I was hoping he would stay in a bit and learn from Gayle at the other end. He should be given a sustained run for Quetta as opener and given the Babar anchor role while Gayle and Banton play around him. No need for these hacky shots.

    That's wishful thinking I'm afraid. It's very hard to succeed in this format without hacky shots, and if you're not good at them you inevitably succumb to the pressure building up dot balls as you try to drop and run with Chris Gayle, as he has done. Babar only succeeds in the anchor role because he is so talented and gets scores so consistently, and even while anchoring he finds the boundary on a regular basis.

    I don't think Quetta have the time nor patience to give him this role for an extended period and hope he can do it like Babar, because if he can't then it's a waste of a spot in a T20 team in 2021.

    He looks wonderful playing proper cricket shots. I just think he should focus on formats that will hone that.

    I applaud that a franchise took a chance on a batsman in the emerging catagory as all we normally see is bowlers. It's just sad that Ayub is the cream of the crop at that level.

    I’d stick with him. Early days for him. If he starts performing then the same people who are now criticising him will start singing his praises. Not much of an expert, but I think there is still value in having faith in youngsters when you know what they are capable of.
    Besides, Gayle will be leaving soon so QG are definitely going to need an opener, so maybe it’s worth sticking with him.

    Iíll stick with him too. Iíll bring Steyn in for Shinwari and Delport in for Gayle, no other changes to the playing XI.

    Tough ask that for the young lad today. Facing Rauf and Shaheen with the new ball.

    Great learning experience for him this.

    But I wonder if QG management are handling him how they should.

    He is yet to debut in first class cricket and his first PSL match was his first domestic T20 match so naturally isnt easy for him to adapt to the stage straight away. Definitely a very valuable experience for him which would be extremely valuable for him at this stage of his career.

    Obviously not a T20 in his early career days but looks like an extremely promising prospect for Tests and ODI. He looks aesthetically pleasing on the eye.

    I mentioed it in an earlier post as well that he looks like a better test prospect indeed

    Could be, but might just be early nerves. I like his technique, looks like a proper batsman, he might look a different player once he's got some runs under his belt. Never wise to write someone off after a couple of innings, that's what happened to Saeed Anwar and Mo Yousuf early on in their careers. Both came back into the side after disappointing early on.

    He is a proper bateman and more suited to the longer format. I hope they give him a few more opportunities.

    Quetta have stuck with him for the opening slot vs Peshawar. And he starts off 2 boundaries in a row.

    I'm afraid not (at the moment anyway). Was a cut through point followed by a cover drive. He has struggled since those 2 shots however.

    He looked much better today. Very difficult for me to know how good a player is at the age of 18 by simply looking at his first few T20 innings. Need to see more of him. For now, I would like to just support him and hope that he gets better every game and learns as much as possible from his senior players and then use that experience to become a better player by working extremely hard. Sarfaraz should not change his batting position again and again if he wants him to have any success in this tournament.

    Ayub goes for another underwhelming low score, succumbing to Hassan Ali on the 5th ball of the match.

    Not even ready for FC level yet. Typical Pakistani mindset of rushing a youngster's development prematurely.

    Should be playing 2nd XI cricket for a couple of seasons first.

    Looks a real softie. His technique and style are for show only. He is going to be another mid 30s averaging FC player like Amin.

    Reminds me of young M.Hafeez , so much style and flair and zero substance , I hope he turns around like Hafeez but early in his career instead of passing 32 birthday.

    Such an ordinary shot.

    I know he's a young lad, but there is so much wrong with that shot.

    I'm assuming Saim is in the emerging category for Quetta? If that's the case, he seriously needs to refine his technique more through FC cricket whether first or second XI, as should all emerging players solely to get a more solid foundation to their batting/bowling technique.

    Nothing wrong with his technique , currently he is just a pretty boy with glorious technique and zero result , T20 is not his format and he should be stay away from it on the contrary the should play FC only for now not even OD because he seriously lacks game awareness and street smartness.
