    ODIs scrapped from Pakistan's tour of Sri Lanka in July-August 2022

    From PCB:

    SLC had requested the PCB that the three ODIs be dropped so that they can begin their LPL earlier.

    As the SLC is the series host, the ODIs are not part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League and the SLC is facing financial challenges, the PCB accepted the SLC request.

    Itinerary for the Test matches is being worked out but will be played in the window that has already been agreed (5 July - 9 Aug)

    PCB wouldn't mind to play 3 T20 instead of 2 tests as well.

    I believe Sri Lanka board has financial issues. So, this move is understandable from their perspective.

    Not bowling is more dangerous than bowling.

    Its been 3 years, and i still hear fans saying oh give him rest. They just say this just for the sake of it.

    He has got coaches, multiple, which have better understanding than us. He doesnt suffer from fatigue and many times it has been said that if he stops bowling and than comes to bowl than he would be injury prone

    The guy is an athlete. All he needs is strength and conditioning.

    He's been one of the busiest bowlers in the world since his debut and doesn't seem to have affected him much. People need to stop with the "rest him" narrative, rest would likely do more harm than good to someone like Shaheen because of his supposed elbow issues.

    According to reporters, the PCB has co-operated with the SLCB and is supporting the LPL because they are hoping the SLCB will do the same for the PCB vis a vis making their players available for the PSL.

    It is easy to push around PCB as they are always desperate for some help from here and there.
    They could have pushed for 1 extra test match with SLC but I guess Rambo has other things on his mind.

    People thought T20 would kill tests, but it has killed ODIs instead. It seems that as far as shorter formats go, teams only care about T20s now.

    Literally nobody wants to see more JAMODI's. Bilateral 50 over games are an absolutely dead format by this point.

    I love ODIs, but this is the right call due to SLC's financial situation. PCB needs to helps out SLC whenever possible

    Test matches don't make any money in comparison to ODIs and T20s. If SLCB cannot afford to host Pakistan for ODIs then hosting Pakistan for an extra test match is out of the question

    Pakistan need to play a minimum of 12 Tests every year.

    OD cricket is dying a slow death , ICC needs to respond to that , but with number of 20 20 leagues around the world it is practically impossible now.

    I have no interest in bilateral ODI series featuring Pakistan these days as they always go with their first choice XI even when they play Zimbabwe. For me it's boring as they same faces mint their batting and bowling averages.

    I don't know what you're talking about, ODIs are still fun to watch and players like Babar need to play a ton of them to have a meaningful career. ODI is Babar's best format, it would be a shame if he doesn't get to play a lot of it.

    T20Is have destroyed ODIs. That's a fact.

    Earlier we had 3 tests, 5 ODIs. Now that has been changed to 3 tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20s. Tests haven't been hurt by T20s much but it is ODIs that are getting hurt.

    2019 WC was one of the best WC we've ever had.

    People want to see them but T20 is just more financially viable. It doesn't help there is T20 WC in back to back years so all teams have been scheduling last couple of years is T20 over ODI's as a result.

    The guy is an athlete. All he needs is strength and conditioning.
    Everyone needs rest, a fast bowler, specially.

    The last pacer from Pakistan to take >200 test wickets was Waqar Younis and it isn't because others were bad but they were all completely physically destroyed. Sohaib Akhtar, Umar Gul both could have easily crossed the 200 wickets barrier if they were fit (not considering Asif and Amir because of their criminal foolishness).

    Shaheen is young, careless his hormones control his brain now. Others around him need to sit him down and teach him about rest to elongate his prime and not be another 150 test wicket bowler.

    The most recent example infront of everyone is HASAN ALI, the guy was grinded to the ground. When he started he was bowling 140kph+, now his effort bowl crosses that. Injuries have cut short his peak, it took him couple of years of rehab to strengthen his back and now he has again started to find form.


    Take example of Australia, they don't hesitate to rest their prime pacers from T20 and ODI, and they are the best fast bowling unit in world cricket. Fast bowler are tough to find and tougher to maintain.

    Every human will have fatigue.

    Sorry for the incoherent rant.

    There are people who are atheletes and there there are people who are not atheletes.

    Umar gul had an action where he had to bend his back more. Akhtar didnt have a body to play or cricket or even be a bowler

    Shaheen is a pure athelete, he has been developed. The only thing he needs just strength and conditioning

    If shaheen was not atheletic than your concerns would had been justified and we would had seen injuries popping up in the last 3 years

    Australian players play alot of cricket, if its not international than domestix
