    Asif probably has senior powers in Misbah's eyes.


    I don't know why anyone is surprised.

    Misbah will always priorities seniority, I'm pretty sure he has more or less admitted that in the past (he calls it experience but we know what he is talking about)

    I have never seen such a miserable planning by the team management in last 30 years.
    Asif for Haider Ali
    Shadab for Usman Qadir

    Should never happened. It totally defies common sense and logic even to arm chair expert like me.

    Why is he not part of the ODI squad? He hasn't retired from ODIs or has he? Makes no sense to exclude someone who is in the form of his life.

    Forget Haider Ali, even Hasan Ali is much better batsman than Asif Ali..

    Just like Misbah and Waqar,,, Asif has some really serious connections

    Rizwan
    Haider Ali

    Having a feeling Asif will get the nod again for the 3rd ODI. Imo, Haider needs to play at 5 and work from there and if he can develop consistency and runs, then he'll slowly make his way up the order and cement a top order slot by WC 2023.

    This is what Misbah is known for. He is known for to select his friends and other players from Islamabad united, as he has some affiliation with them i feel. During his captaincy (and coaching days), he selected a garbage combination in first 2 games of a bilateral series, only for him to select a winning combination in the third one. For example, this happened in NZ where in first 2 T20s, Misbah selected an unchanged team, a losing combination. In the third one, he selected a winning combination that all the fans and critics were suggesting, and Pakistan won.

    Seems like Misbah didn't learn the lesson and yet again selected the losing and unchanged combination (just look at the middle order). Expect this incompetence from Misbah.

    Very convenient. Shadab is out because of toe, Haider is in because of tooth. What next? Asif out because of wrong haircut?

    Not a single batsman apart from the top 3 had a good series, yet Haider canít even get one game. Appalling team selection.

    The management need a reminder of what a middle order batsmen means.

    To note, it does not mean specialist wicket keepers or bowlers in this position.

    Sit deep in crease hit ball from outside off to leg. That is all that he has to offer, why not hit a cover drive. This guy is a joke. Lets also not forget his drop against AUS in the WC.

    I would still prefer Haider in that scenario. Asif has serious mentality issues.


    Full credit to Micky Arthur for realizing Babar Azam was born to bat at 3 in all formats.

    Haider Ali is an Opener. He opened for Pak U-19 Team in 2020 U-19 WC. Why people want him to bat at 5/6.

    We have already destroyed a top-order player "Umar Akmal" by making him bat at 6 in ODIs.

    Haider can bat @4 in T20Is just like Baristow bats @4 in T20I & open in ODIs.

    I hope Asif does not play in T20s.There are plenty of options available so there is no need to play Asif.

    Our evaluation of players in Pakistan is very poor. We have no idea what Asif Ali is good at it and what he isn't. I would say the same thing about Haider.

    Babar started his career at 5,6 so did R Sharma and many others who went on to play in the top order after establishing themselves.

    Umar Akmal was destroyed by dropping him from tests (same with Afridi). A mistake that we are committing with Haider as well.
