    Can Imad and Nawaz play at #6 and #7 in ODIs?

    Imad is a better batter, Nawaz a better bowler.

    And the 50 over world cup is in India where you do need more than 2 spinners.

    Keeping that in mind, I'd feel it'll be a good idea to accomodate both Imad and Nawaz (along with another spinner(


    This will be the line up

    Fakhar
    Imam/ Sharjeel
    Babar
    Rizwan
    Haris/ Saud/ Haider
    Imad
    Nawaz
    Faheem
    Hasan
    Usman / Shadab
    Shaheen

    3 seamers, 4 spinners and batting till #10.

    Imad should definitely be batting at 6. Nawaz I would prefer at 8 or 9. Behind Hasan Ali. But he has definitely improved and made a case for an inclusion in the side as a bowler.

    However he is going to have to do a whole lot more to inspire any confidence in his batting ability.

    Just some stats.

    Imad averages 43 @ 110. More than good for Pakistan standards.

    One thing Pakistan should accept is their capabilities, they'd never be a team scoring 350+ scores.

    They've to try scoring 320+ and defend it with their bowling

    Imad isn't making the 2023 WC. Nawaz is more of a long format player. Nawaz for ODIs and Imad for T20s.

    In a hypothetical lineup, 6-9 should be Imad, Faheem, Hasan and Nawaz.

    Nawaz is the weakest batsmen of the four, regardless of his QEA form. Haven't seen a single decent batting performance in international cricket from him.

    Nawaz is a solid option for Pakistan in the long formats whereas Imad is better suited for T20's, but me personally, I'm not against Imad not returning for Pakistan cricket until improvements are made.

    This seems like a good solution to me. Shadab is the one Nawaz should be replacing in the team, not Imad. I would put Faheem at 6 though, with Imad 7, Hassan 9 and Nawaz 9.


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

    You're right ...we should always go for specialists - we're just wasting talented players like iftikhar, asif, talat, khushdil, danish, sarfraz on the sidelines.

    Pity, malik has retired, otherwise here's another.

    And, of course 'Professor' ...he'll only be 43 in 2023....bacha.

    What do u mean bhai??
    Faheem can bat can bowl Highest score 26 in odi nothing special with the ball.
    Imad is yet win a match against a big team with bat or ball. Averages what 45 with the ball??
    Nawaz can bowl a bit but hasnt done anything with the bat.

    They are all similar players with limited abilities in either facets. Cant play all at the same time.
    Such players go missing in challenging situations becoz skill set is not up to the mark

    Faheem , Imad , Nawaz , shadab all are almost same level players , you can play two of them only , and Faheem can be third seamer , so he would get nod.

    I think with Harris coming in middle order he can easily give 5 - 6 overs

    In 50 over WC in India I would go with

    Fakhar
    Imam
    Babar
    Harris
    Rizwan
    Haider Ali
    Faheem
    Nawaz
    Imad / shadab
    Hassan
    Shaheen

    Imad is a decent bat but here people are overrating him.He avgs 43 becuase of the high number of not outs.He isnt as good of a batsman to be batting at 6.If he can learn how to spin the ball and learn the art if taking wickets than ill want him ahead of nawaz in odis.But in t20is he is an automatic pick
