    Shadab Khan ruled out from further participation on the South Africa and Zimbabwe tours

    Shadab Khan has been ruled out from further participation on the South Africa and Zimbabwe tours after suffering a left toe injury while batting during the second One-Day International that has sidelined him for up to four weeks.

    X-rays conducted following the match revealed an “intra articular communicated fracture” though there is neither any displacement nor angulation. The injury will be treated conservatively and Shadab will undergo a four-week rehab.

    Wish him a quick recovery. He shouldn't have played the second ODI after his performance in first ODI and would probably have avoided the injury, but what is bound to happen will happen.

    Thats bad news for shadab Hope he recovers quick

    On the plus side this is an opportunity for someone else who hopefully can come in and perform well

    We desperately need the squad players to put their hands up and push the likes of shadab to perform better than they are

    PSL did give a decent insight into the players. Shadab has been struggling and was poor during the PSL. But he was still fast tracked into the side being VC.

    The expert panel of medical staff of PCB always doing great work.
    This is what happens when you have incompetent doctors or lack of actual doctors and take physiotherapist's word for granted.

    Shadab's been tripe for over a year now, needs to be sent back to NHPC considering there's no domestic cricket going on.

    Well finally we might have a leg spinner who actually takes wickets in Qadir. Shadab needs to follow his mate's Hassan Ali's example and do the hard yards in domestics to get his bowling form back.

    This guy is made of glass.

    Keeps breaking down, and hes what 22 years old in fake records.

    The guy shatters just by playing a match.


    Anyways, lets see if usman qadir spins it on these pitches.

    So shadab is out.

    Danish aziz would also be out.

    Now question is woukd asif ali play or not.

    Pakistan would be going in with one less batsmen.

    Itd either going to be haider ali and abdullah shafiq. Or haider ali and sarfraz ahmed.

    But than there is also the bowling dilemma. I think hassan ali isnt fit due to covid effect on lungs.

    So will pakistan go with 4 changes?

    Zahid mehmood should replace him for t20s and zimbabwe.

    Now for the last odi. Pakistan could be forced to make 4 changes. Would be quite interesting if they do it.

    Possible changes:
    Shadab=usman qadir
    Asif ali= sarfraz ahmed
    Danish aziz= haider ali
    M. Hasnain= hasan ali

    Or maybe pakistan goes with 3 chnages with shadab being replaced with hassan ali

    So basically the necessary changes are Shadab Khan and Danish Aziz, both need to be dropped. Both need to be replaced with bowling options, so Nawaz is one person who is guaranteed to play. Usman Qadir could play, but this is where we needed someone like Haris Sohail, good enough to bowl a few overs when needed.

    Now, it means that Asif Ali needs to be replaced with either Sarfaraz Ahmed or Haider Ali. The goal would be to give us deep batting, so Hasan Ali comes in for Hasnain.

    Therefore, one option is to go with:

    Fakhar Zaman (can bowl 1-2 overs if needed)
    Imam-ul-Haq
    Babar Azam (c)
    Mohammad Rizwan/Sarfaraz Ahmed
    Haider Ali
    Faheem Ashraf
    Mohammad Nawaz
    Usman Qadir
    Hasan Ali
    Shaheen Shah Afridi
    Haris Rauf

    A more risky option is to swap Nawaz with Sarfaraz, and make Fakhar bowl the extra overs if needed.

    It pains me to say it, but the guy has become a terrible bowler. He has still offers alot in the team as batsman in the lower order and a really good fielder but 1st and foremost he is a spinner and he doesn't spin the ball.

    Good news for Pakistan. I was recommending dropping him for Qadir and Hasnain for Hassan to compensate for the batting loss. With his action, I can't see him get a lot of purchase or spin off the wicket, he used to bowl a good google, don't see that now. He is comfortable with the bat and of course is a live wire on the field, in the long run I can see him forsaking the bowling to become a better batter.


    If he bowls with a full sleeve and is an off-spinner, rest assured he chucks. Amen

    There is no point in calling a replacement. Considering the visa collection, flying time into South Africa and quarantine before joining the bubble it will take at least 10 days. By that time the series will be almost over. Thats teh reason tourung teams nowadays travel with an extended squad to cover any injuries on tour.

    Never nice to see a player injured, but it gives Shadab a chance to take a break, reassess his game and where he is going and then work on his bowling with the likes of Mushtaq Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq.

    He needs to play First-class cricket if he is to improve his bowling. He won't improve as a bowler from bowling 4 over spell after 4 over spell.

    They were both excellent bowlers but He has worked with both and its not made any difference, comparatively he spun the ball more at the U19 level.
    His problem is a technical one, he releases the ball from underneath the hand without enough side spin, and if you compare that with a classic Leg Spinner like Warne, who releases the ball from the side of the hand( or at creates the perception), you see why it's spinning so much more.

    Maybe we could bring in Nawaz to keep in tight with the ball and add some helpful runs at No.6 or 7 or they could bring in Usman Qadir to maybe get some wickets but with the pitches not offering much spin and making spinners non threatening.

    Team management failure to pay attention to detail was exposed again, Hasnain should've batted ahead of Shaheen and Rauf who could barely get bat on ball.

    Seriously, you would think these highly paid "professional" coaches and team strategists, and Think Tanks must have noted this in net sessions but mind boggling to see their inability and incompetence. Something that we ordinary fans can easily see is not perceivable by them?

    Good spot. A bowler like Warne had exceptionally strong wrists, it's going to be improbable that other bowlers can impart that much side-spin on the ball. It's also a very Australian way of spinning the ball, whereas in countries with softer pitches one would see people using the seam and imparting more top-spin.

    Shadab's pretty much lost to the game as a bowler, it's unlikely he can get back to the level he was at even 4 years ago without taking a hiatus from white ball cricket and working on mastering the leg-break in domestic cricket.

    Blessing in disguise. He is neither a bowler, not a batsman at the moment. Just a fielder who runs fast at times and may take catches.

    I understand no PCT fan would wish one of their players to get injured but good to see a collective sigh of relief on Shadab missing out on the rest of the tournament. Agree with many here that he needs to go back to domestic and massively improve his game to claim a spot in the team.

    All these posters saying this could be a blessing in disguise as Shadab can work on his game. He has been injured in the last year a couple of times. When he has returned from his injury, he hasn’t changed anything significant. Doubt he will change anything anytime soon.

    What he needs to do is play first class cricket. It’s absolutely shocking he has played so few first class cricket. @Saj can you ask Shadab or someone in the management why he has hardly played any first class cricket?

    Blessing in disguise because someone else could do better and potentially grab his spot. That’s the only way you can replace Shadab after Misbah and co. appointed him VC which was one of the many stupid decisions.

    As you mentioned he is the vice captain, Misbah also likes him. He is not getting dropped. Misbah and co will say he was out injured and he did nothing to lose his place.

    Looking back making him the vice captain was not a great move.

    Fair. Knowing Misbah I won't be surprised if this happens.

    Well I don't think Shane Warne will go to Lahore in the coming weeks so I reckon he'll have to work with Mushy and Saqlain again.

    Another technical issue is what I mentioned in another thread, he is not getting through his action. He is literally stopping straight after bowling, there is hardly any rotation, drive with his body or follow through.

    I agree.

    Main issue I foresee is that every time he gets half-fit, he rushes back to play white ball cricket. He'll never be able to sort out those technical issues playing short-form cricket as it necessarily hampers consistently repeatable bowling actions.

    I have given images of extremes but it shows how much work has in front of him. The sad fact is that some leg spin bowlers arent even aware of this big technical problem. As I said my lad had the problem and as much as I worked with him, we never solved it. It becomes an instinctive part of the makeup.
    @Saj
    Can you pass on these 2 images to him to make him aware. With so many pro coaches around, I am sure one can help him.

    This issue you mention actually is part of the ball being released from under the hand which effectively means that you are spinning the ball with 2 fingers. My lad had exactly the same problem and when I asked Mushy to have a look at him in 2016, he immediately said the lad has to follow through towards the target.

    The one thing Pakistan aren't struggling for is spinners or spin all rounders. I don't know why we rush to bring Shadab back in every series like he's some A grade match winner. He's still young, he needs a break back to the drawing board to become a force over the long term. At the moment he's destined to remain mediocre at international level where he hasn't got the confidence to try anything new.

    Too heavy - will slow down batsman whilst they are batting / running..

    A composite toe is just a piece of hard plastic. I have worn many different kinds of cricket shoes and sneakers with a composite toe. Perhaps for ultra high level professionals, an ounce up or down may matter a lot for personally, I didn't find much of a difference.
    I mean they are already used to wearing those heavy pads, gloves etc, why not protect a very delicate part of your body, you toe fingers that is?

    Anyway, I see you are located in Peoria IL, do you guys drive to St. Louis sometimes to play?

    I think one reason could be the make-up of the arms and shoulder. As a kid and even now, I couldn't help but release the ball from the side of my hand when bowling leg-spin. I could bowl a googly but it was very obvious from the action and it wasn't very effective.

    One of my friends, on the other hand, could only bowl googlies and top spinners. He basically couldn't bowl a legspinner which I thought was very odd. He probably could have trained himself to bowl it but it certainly wasn't easy for him.

    I also spun the ball sharply and didn't know why I could and my son couldn't. I then filmed my action and realised that I was releasing the ball from the side of the hand and he wasn't. But as you say it's a natural thing and its very difficult to change. We worked for hours in the nets and had some success but not enough to kick his bowling onto the next level.

    Don't pontificate to me please.

    It's unfortunate but seemingly the only way an underperforming player (for at least a couple of years now) will be dropped from the team - it might be unpopular with you but his unavailability for the moment is welcomed.

    On any level, naturally I wish him well in his recovery.

    I don’t disagree that he wasn’t performing and needed to go. But let’s be honest, there were a thousand other ways you could have put it. It’s one thing to not like him as a player, I think he needs to go back and earn his place as well, but rejoicing another person’s injury like that is extremely low and people are going to call you out for it and rightfully so.

    He is rubbish with both bat and ball and he is always injured these days. Why do we keep selecting him and why is he vice-captain?

    This injury is most likely a made up one

    Bowlers back in the days used to smash batsmen toecaps shoaib waqar , batsmen played with broken toes , dislocated fingers etc.

    Why do u need 4 weeks recovery for something that isn't even fractured or broken. Shoaib used to bowl with his whole body in pain.

    Seems a lame excuse to cover up shadab being dropped, management making a.cock and bull story of fitness injury issue

    Imad would have been a perfect replacement. Both would have been wicket less but Imad would have bought more value with his batting.

    I thought he is , that is why he is preferred over Imad Wasim.

    Hope Shadab have a quick and proper recovery.. he should be playing only if he is fit.

    Shouldn’t be fast tracked with half fitness or 80% fit.

    Zahid Mahmood replaces Shadab Khan for Zimbabwe tour

    Pretoria, 7 April 2021:

    Wrist spinner Zahid Mahmood has been named as Shadab Khan’s replacement for the three-match T20I series against Zimbabwe, which will be played from 21-25 April in Harare, while Fakhar Zaman will stay with the side for the T20Is in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

    Zahid was originally named in the two-Test squad against Zimbabwe, while Fakhar was initially named for the ODIs.

    Both the changes were approved by the national selection committee on the request of the team management.


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)
