    Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2022-23 season

    After the successful completion of the National T20 and Cricket Associations T20, the 2022-23 season enters into next phase with two red-ball tournaments – the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and Cricket Associations Championship – beginning from Tuesday, 27 September.

    The squads for both tournaments have been finalised by national men’s chief selector, Muhammad Wasim, in consultation with the six Cricket Associations.

    Yasir Shah, Azhar Ali, Khalid Usman, Umar Amin, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Hasan Ali will lead Balochistan, Central Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Northern, Sindh and Southern Punjab in the two-month Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, in which each team will play the other twice in the 10-round group stage.

    The first five round matches will be played at the Abbottabad Cricket Stadium, Abbottabad, Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi’s Pindi Cricket Stadium. Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium and Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan along with Abbottabad’s and Rawalpindi’s stadiums will be part of the remaining five round matches. The final of the tournament will be played from 26 to 30 November. The venue for the final will be announced in due course.

    The PCB that has recently increased the match fees for its players featuring in the domestic cricket as part of its efforts to incentivise and reward top-performing cricketers, has put PKR17million on offer for the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy with the champion side grabbing PKR10million and runner-up bagging PKR5million. The top-performers – player of the tournament, best batter, best bowler and best wicketkeeper – will pocket PKR500,000 each. The player of the final will be awarded PKR50,000.

    The first eight-round matches from Pindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi will be captured by nine High-Definition cameras and beamed across the globe through PCB’s official YouTube channel. The live-stream schedule for the last two rounds will be shared in due course, while the final will be televised on PTV Sports.

    The squads of all six Cricket Associations are available here. The defending champions Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will take on Balochistan at the Abbottabad Cricket Stadium, Abbottabad in their opening match of the tournament.

    Meanwhile, Cricket Associations Championship, in which the second XI sides of the six Cricket Associations feature, will also begin from 27 September and will be played on the double round robin basis. In order to bring more competitiveness, the PCB, has introduced four-day matches instead of the usual three-day for the tournament.

    The matches will be played from 27 September to 23 November at different venues of Karachi, while Bugti Stadium in Quetta will host three matches from sixth to eight round. Sindh – the defending champions will take on Central Punjab at the UBL Sports Complex, Karachi in their opening round match.

    Where is Zeeshan Zameer? Doesn’t seem to be in either Sindh squad.

    As ever, if you’re interested in talented youth doing well, Northern is the team, followed by Sindh

    Unless Zeeshan Zameer is unfit, there is no justification to not have him playing QAE or Cricket Associations Championship.

    Other than that some good selections and player development to look forward to with quite a few young batsmen, pacers and spinners.

    Scribbled down on my notepad some possible XIs:

    Balochistan: Butt, Banglazai, Haris, Shafiq, Talat, Haseebullah (wk), Amad, Yasir, Bhatti, Shehzad, Wali.

    Verdict: Sadly another wooden spoon beckons. Can't see how they'll take 20 wickets consistently or get enough runs on board without Imam and Shan. Hope Akif bounces back, he's struggled post ACL injury.

    CP: Abdullah, Abid, Azhar, Tahir, Saad, Qasim, Shan (wk), Yamin/Mir, Maqsood, Ali, Hunain.

    Verdict: Tayyab Tahir will bolster their batting and provide attacking impetus. As last season, my concern is taking 20 wickets against the top sides. Making Usama Mir your frontline spinner is a gamble with a FC avg of 41. Safi Abdullah is demoted to 2nds. Ahmed Daniyal and Hunain Shah haven't played FC cricket but offer pace - the latter looked decent in National T20.

    KPK - Farhan, Ashfaq, Nabi, Kamran, Adil, Rehan (wk), Usman, Sajid, Arshad, Irfanullah, Ihsanullah.

    Verdict: Very strong and balanced squad. Gritty batsmen and terrific seam attack. Favourites again but they've lost two finals this year. Waqar Ahmed is promoted - he averaged 45 for KPK 2nd XI.

    Northern - Huraira, Faseeh, Amin, Faizan, Sarmad, Mubasir, Rohail, Mehran, Kashif, Waqas, Mahmood.

    Verdict: No real changes. Plenty of exciting youngsters with spotlight on Huraira after topping the runchart last year. Abdul Faseeh will look to build a good FC debut. Hope Mehran and Mubasir get plenty of overs under their belt, PAK lack good Test spinners. Can they finally win the big prize after two final defeats ?

    Sindh - Saim, Bin Yousuf, Saud, Saad, Fawad, Sarfraz (wk), Faraz, Hamza, Umar, Abrar, Asghar/Mudassar.

    Verdict: Strong batting as ever. All eyes on Saim Ayub after an excellent National T20. Bin Yousuf and Saad Khan are decent young batsmen too. However, the seam attack is very weak. Only Mir Hamza is proven. Mohammad Umar is rated but hasn't played FC cricket since 2020. Ghulam Mudassar averaged 41 in 2nd XI tournament last season. Where's Sohail Khan ?

    SP - Zain, Salahuddin, Rafiq, Salman, Babar, Siddiq (wk), Randhawa, Hasan, Usman, Bashir, Gul.

    Verdict: SP have bolstered their seam attack and with last season's leading QEA wicket-taker Ali Usman, they finally look capable of taking 20 wickets regularly. The opening pair of Zain Abbas and Tayyab Tahir is broken, but they've plenty of runs in them. Yousuf Babar made a nice start to his FC career so intrigued to see how he gets on.

    Should be another cracking season but some surprising omissions with no Imam-ul-Haq (perhaps as he abruptly left Somerset after his father had a heart attack - IA he recovers), Zafar Gohar, Sohail Khan and Mohammad Abbas (resting after his Hampshire stint ?)

    @Titan24 @KingOfPakBreakfast @shamaan would you go differently with your lineups and how do you rate the squads ?

    They really should extend out the window for FC & domestic in general. It seems like everything is crammed within a 4 months so everything wraps up prior to PSL but I think they should simply make FC into 3 months and pickup with List A matches after PSL.

    Or just have FC matches running with PSL too. It's not like anyone is going to watches these matches lol.

    Either way, they need to extend the domestic calendar a bit for the development of these players because I don't know if most of these players will be getting any sort of professional cricket for a very long time until next season once domestic season ends around December/January.

    @Titan24 @KingOfPakBreakfast @shamaan would you go differently with your lineups and how do you rate the squads ?
    All your line ups are very much on point. The only one which I’d think will be different is Northern, as they will play Nauman Ali over Mehran. They could play both, but Mubasir, Nauman and Mehran is overkill. It also wouldn’t be right to drop Nauman given how incredible he has been for Northern.

    I also think, along with all the relevant factors you’ve raised, it’ll be who puts there hand up and forces their way into the QEA squad from the second XI. I realise that KPK’s batting line up is fairly set, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Maaz Sadaqat force his way in. I’m also not sure if the Zeeshan on the KPK 2nds is the 7’ foot young lad.

    Also, if Mohammad Asghar does kick on, I would not be surprised to see Arish Ali Khan given a go as the SLAO for Sindh. Arish was very good for the 2nds T20 cup.

    My xi for Qaid E Azam

    Bolochistan
    Abdul Wahid Bangalzai
    Imran Butt
    Haseebullah
    Haris Sohail
    Asad Shafiq
    Husain Talat
    Kashif Bhatti
    Yasir Shah
    Khurram Shehzad
    Taj Wali
    Akif Javed

    I think they will do well If Yasir Shah is on form they have a decent pace attack.I hope Abdul Wahid,and Haseebullah bat in the top 5.

    Central Punjab
    Abid Ali
    Abdullah Shafiq
    Ahmed Shahzad
    Azhar Ali
    Tayyab Tahir
    Qasim Akram
    Ali Shan
    Waqas Maqsood
    Usama Mir
    Hunain Shah
    Muhammad Ali

    I think they will struggle they only have Usama Mir and he hasn't got good stats but it will give opportunity to be the main man in this year.
    Hunain hasn't got much experience but he has got the pace.they have a decent batting line up thou.

    Must say I am disappointing not seeing Azam Khan and Hasan Nawaz listed here. Maybe Azam Khan didn't want to do it but I think he should try to really hone his skills in FC.

    32 AVG in FC with a 80 SR. Decent average and has destructive abilities in FC. Maybe he'll be included once his CPL stint is up and I think really he should be. More talent in FC the better. Should make it a priority to make FC super competitive, especially with big matches coming up vs England & NZ.

    Hasan Nawaz not in second XI either. Disappointing to see because I think he is a pretty great talent.

    This season is a big season for Saud & Kamran with Azhar & Fawad spots being up in the air.

    My favourite team due to giving alot of youngsters a chance.They have a good young opening pair and a decent all rounder but they may go for runs due to having little FC experience.

    Balochistan: Butt, Banglazai, Haris, Shafiq, Talat, Haseebullah (wk), Amad, Yasir, Bhatti, Shehzad, Wali.

    Verdict: Sadly another wooden spoon beckons. Can't see how they'll take 20 wickets consistently or get enough runs on board without Imam and Shan. Hope Akif bounces back, he's struggled post ACL injury.

    CP: Abdullah, Abid, Azhar, Tahir, Saad, Qasim, Shan (wk), Yamin/Mir, Maqsood, Ali, Hunain.

    Verdict: Tayyab Tahir will bolster their batting and provide attacking impetus. As last season, my concern is taking 20 wickets against the top sides. Making Usama Mir your frontline spinner is a gamble with a FC avg of 41. Safi Abdullah is demoted to 2nds. Ahmed Daniyal and Hunain Shah haven't played FC cricket but offer pace - the latter looked decent in National T20.

    KPK - Farhan, Ashfaq, Nabi, Kamran, Adil, Rehan (wk), Usman, Sajid, Arshad, Irfanullah, Ihsanullah.

    Verdict: Very strong and balanced squad. Gritty batsmen and terrific seam attack. Favourites again but they've lost two finals this year. Waqar Ahmed is promoted - he averaged 45 for KPK 2nd XI.

    Northern - Huraira, Faseeh, Amin, Faizan, Sarmad, Mubasir, Rohail, Mehran, Kashif, Waqas, Mahmood.

    Verdict: No real changes. Plenty of exciting youngsters with spotlight on Huraira after topping the runchart last year. Abdul Faseeh will look to build a good FC debut. Hope Mehran and Mubasir get plenty of overs under their belt, PAK lack good Test spinners. Can they finally win the big prize after two final defeats ?

    Sindh - Saim, Bin Yousuf, Saud, Saad, Fawad, Sarfraz (wk), Faraz, Hamza, Umar, Abrar, Asghar/Mudassar.

    Verdict: Strong batting as ever. All eyes on Saim Ayub after an excellent National T20. Bin Yousuf and Saad Khan are decent young batsmen too. However, the seam attack is very weak. Only Mir Hamza is proven. Mohammad Umar is rated but hasn't played FC cricket since 2020. Ghulam Mudassar averaged 41 in 2nd XI tournament last season. Where's Sohail Khan ?

    SP - Zain, Salahuddin, Rafiq, Salman, Babar, Siddiq (wk), Randhawa, Hasan, Usman, Bashir, Gul.

    Verdict: SP have bolstered their seam attack and with last season's leading QEA wicket-taker Ali Usman, they finally look capable of taking 20 wickets regularly. The opening pair of Zain Abbas and Tayyab Tahir is broken, but they've plenty of runs in them. Yousuf Babar made a nice start to his FC career so intrigued to see how he gets on.

    Should be another cracking season but some surprising omissions with no Imam-ul-Haq (perhaps as he abruptly left Somerset after his father had a heart attack - IA he recovers), Zafar Gohar, Sohail Khan and Mohammad Abbas (resting after his Hampshire stint ?)

    @Titan24 @KingOfPakBreakfast @shamaan would you go differently with your lineups and how do you rate the squads ?
    I think my line up is slightly different for example I have gone with Haseebullah at the top order as that's were he normally bats and I have also gone for Akif Javed instead of butt as I believe their more potent and need genuine bowlers.

    Only 1 different with the central team I have gone with Shehzad instead of Saad.

    For the Kyhber squad I will put kamran at 3 your best batter normally bats at this position.

    All the best of the xi are pretty much the same

    I also think, along with all the relevant factors you’ve raised, it’ll be who puts there hand up and forces their way into the QEA squad from the second XI. I realise that KPK’s batting line up is fairly set, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Maaz Sadaqat force his way in. I’m also not sure if the Zeeshan on the KPK 2nds is the 7’ foot young lad.

    Also, if Mohammad Asghar does kick on, I would not be surprised to see Arish Ali Khan given a go as the SLAO for Sindh. Arish was very good for the 2nds T20 cup.
    Would you not give pick Akif Javed ?

    Overall your squad is similar to mine with the exception of a couple players and we both picked youngsters such as Mehran.

    I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come, But based on those scores, looks like we have more roads being played on this year. It really makes it difficult for selectors to appraise actual ability of batsmen with the amount of runs being scored. If you recall from a couple of seasons ago, Hussain Talat was batting like Bradman on these pitches.

    Mubasir ends unbeaten on 74 as well, at a very healthy s/r of 75. The bowling attack were no mugs either, with Hassan Ali and Ilyas in there. I really like Mubasir, he’s one who makes the most of his opportunities. Not so much a stylistic similarity, but he’s share that trait with Nawaz. Hope he gets a 100 tomorrow.

    That’s good to hear. Hopefully he has an excellent tournament so can be in reckoning for tests. Can’t be much worse then Sajid with the ball and far better bat. Mubasir is a solid prospect for test cricket.

    Lahore, 27 September 2022: Teenager Abdul Faseeh’s first-class season was off to a dream start as the Northern opener scored his maiden century on the first day of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2022-23.

    The 19-year-old left-hander made a sparkling 151 at almost run-a-ball, smashing 24 boundaries (20 fours and four sixes) in 158 balls against Southern Punjab in what is his only second match.

    Faseeh added 188 runs for the second wicket with his captain Umar Amin, who missed a century by 11 runs, scoring 89 in 151 balls (11 fours and a six).

    Northern finished the day at 379 for four – having already secured four batting points.Adding 21 more to the total in the next eight overs will get them maximum batting points.

    All-rounder Mubasir Khan, player of the tournament of the last season, was unbeaten on 74 off 98 (10 fours) and had the company of Sarmad Bhatti (35 not out) when stumps were drawn at Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad.

    Southern Punjab all-rounder Hassan Khan took three wickets for 68. He bowled Faseeh, Umar and Faizan Riaz.

    Abdullah Shafique was nearing his maiden double-century in Central Punjab’s fixture against Sindh at the Pindi Cricket Stadium. The star of Pakistan’s famous Test win at Galle in which they recorded the highest run chase at the venue this summer was not out on 189 (23 fours and three sixes), scored at a strike rate of 82. This is his highest first-class score.

    All-rounder Aamer Yamin unbeaten on 61, struck off just 66 balls (six fours and two sixes) was his partner in the undefeated stand of 120.

    Sindh’s right-arm medium fast Asif Mehmood, who was a touch expensive, leaking 109 in 18 overs, took three wickets on his debut as Central Punjab were 358 for six at the close of play.

    Balochistan were 324 for five in 89 overs against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa at the Abbottabad Cricket Stadium as Azeem Ghumman top-scored with 78 off 144. Abdul Wahid Bangalzai continued to impress as he made 69 in 83 and Ali Waqas was not out on 55 off 117.

    After the fall of Imran Butt, Azeem and Bangalzai added 133 runs for the second wicket.

    Scores in brief:

    Northern choose to bat against Southern Punjab at Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad

    Northern 379-4, 92 overs (Abdul Faseeh 151, Umar Amin 89, Mubasir Khan 74 not out, Sarmad Bhatti 35 not out; Hassan Khan 3-68)

    Innings points – Northern (four), Southern Punjab (one)

    Toss uncontested – Sindh opt to bowl against Central Punjab at Pindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi

    Central Punjab 358-6, 90 overs (Abdullah Shafique 189 not out, Aamer Yamin 61 not out, Qasim Akram 31; Asif Mehmood 3-109)

    Innings points – Central Punjab (four), Sindh (two)

    Toss uncontested - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa opt to bowl against Balochistan at Abbottabad Cricket Stadium

    Balochistan 324-5, 89 overs (Azeem Ghumman 78, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai 69, Ali Waqas 55 not out, Asad Shafiq 34, Haseebullah 32 not out)

    Innings points – Balochistan (three), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (one)

    Wow Abdullah Shafique with an unbeaten 189 to end the day. Playing at a very quick 81 SR too.

    Excellent to see. He will need to be in top form when England & NZ come.

    Sajid is leagues better than Mubasir as a bowler. But Mubasir is still developing, and really is a batting all rounder anyway,

    Sajid might be leagues better according to you but Mubasir has a far better off spinning action then Sajid. While I agree Mubasir is a batting all rounder but looking at the the pathetic off spin spinning options we have I am sure he can put up his hand too.

    Sajida currently just runs through domestic batsmen. Which is why I’m surprised that he hast been more effective at international level. Mubasir, whilst currently doing well for his level of experience, is still not the same threat as an offie. InshAllah he can develop more, and lets hope he does.

    What he can become though is a reliable no 7 for Pak, I.e. a reliable batsmen who can get the occasional wicket, or at the very least hold up an end, whilst the quicks attack from the other end. He’s not that guy yet, as his batting still needs to improve. However if he continues his trajectory, what I’ve described is the floor for his abilities. If his off spin truly develops, then his ceiling is impressive.

    Players like Abdullah Shafiq who are rated as the top batsmen in domestic cricket should be bossing the domestic stats i.e. reaching an avg of 50 with plenty of 200 plus scores.

    Am concerned by his inability to translate his potential in the ODI and T-20 format. Pakistan badly needs elite players with multiple gears in all three formats of the game.

    Seems too orthodox to be a succes in the T20 and ODI game. Has more of a chance in the ODI than T20. He needs to let him self go and learn to stand and hit if he is to develop as s T20 player

If you recall from a couple of seasons ago, Hussain Talat was batting like Bradman on these pitches.
    But then you look at strike rates and other stuff.

    I think he should focus on tests becouse that's were he's most likely going to succeed and given a longer run.

    His game will translate well for ODI's. For T20's, probably not, at least especially not right now in the near term with Babar/Rizwan opening. Struggled in National T20 this year but he was pretty well the year before.

    Looked at the highlights of the match. I'm not sure what other pitches looked like but this one didn't seem as flat as the score suggests. Had some swing & turn. Most of the batters got out making around 20 too. Abdullah just made really well especially after a missed chance by the opposition early on.

    All three decks are complete roads. From all the matches, of the 21 batsman to have batted so far, only 1 failed to get to double figures (1 runout).

    You can't expect players these days to only focus on one format especially when they're young. Abdullah at 22 has far more power game as compared to Babar at 28. Pakistan should definitely give Abdullah a chance in middle order in T20I's after the WC he can't be worse than Shan, Khusdil & Iftikhar.

    Big things are expected from this lad & his 1st inns in this season QEA trophy shows that it was a logical descion from the management to give him his test cap, now we must indulge him in LOI's as well whether as opener or in middle order.

    With Sindh, it looked like all the batsmen gave their wickets away. It looks like we may get a result for this game.

    Great to see Balochistan doing well. Hope they can force the follow on.

    The Northern-SP game looks like a certain draw. It looks like Faisalabad is going to be a road this year.

    Maaz Sadaqat continues to do extremely well in second XI. 114 runs with a 84 SR. Dominated during the T20 tournament too. Gotta think he'll get the call up from KPK pretty soon.

    It's been a struggle for most of the 2nd XI players to score runs.

    Lahore, 28 September 2022: Pindi Cricket Stadium will always be dear to Abdullah Shafique as it is where he scored his maiden first-class double-century today. The 22-year-old smashed 232 - a knock embellished with 28 fours and four sixes – at a remarkable strike rate of 89.

    His innings played a crucial role in Central Punjab pocketing maximum batting points (five) for being at 411 for eight at 100-over-mark before they were bowled out for 428 by Sindh on the second day of what is the opening round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2022-23.

    Abdullah began the day at 189 and had the company of all-rounder Aamer Yamin, who scored a 77-ball 70. The pair added 135 for the seventh wicket.

    The fact that Aamer’s 70 was the second best score in the innings underscores the magnitude of Abdullah’s knock and sheds light on how he anchored Central Punjab’s innings.

    Sindh, in reply, had managed 270 for five by the close of play - after being reduced to 94 for three – thanks to an unbeaten 86-run stand between Fawad Alam (75 not out) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (42 not out).

    Twenty-year-old Saim Ayub – whose extraordinary batting at the top of the order helped Sindh to maiden National T20 title this month – showed his class on first-class debut with a solid 71 off 96 (nine fours and a six).

    At the Abbottabad Cricket Stadium, Kashif Bhatti’s lower-order blitz helped Balochistan finish at 473 all out after they began the day on 324 for five. Kashif smashed 11 fours and two sixes in his 84-ball 71 and was duly supported by number 10 batter Khurram Shahzad who made 47 in 69 balls (eight fours).

    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had lost five batters for 151 before stumps. Kamran Ghulam, with his unbeaten 64 off 105 (nine fours and a six) held Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s innings together after they were three down for 34 and added 67 runs with Adil Amin (39 off 60). Kamran will begin the proceedings on Thursday with Rehan Afridi, who is not out on 20.

    Northern posted a mammoth 529 for five against Southern Punjab at Faisalabad’s Iqbal Stadium, courtesy an extraordinary 170 not out off 236 balls from Mubasir Khan, the last season’s player of the tournament. Mubasir smashed 22 fours and a six after starting the day on 74.

    Southern Punjab were two wickets down for 128. Opener Zain Abbas made a half-century and was batting at 69. Salman Ali Agha (35 not out) joined him at the other end.

    Scores in brief:

    Toss uncontested – Sindh opt to bowl against Central Punjab at Pindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi

    Central Punjab 428 all out, 102.2 overs (Abdullah Shafique 232, Aamer Yamin 70; Mir Hamza 3-72, Asif Mehmood 3-128)

    Sindh 270-5, 66 overs (Fawad Alam 75 not out, Saim Ayub 71, Sarfaraz Ahmed 42 not out; Aamer Yamin 2-50)

    Innings points – Central Punjab (six), Sindh (five)

    Northern choose to bat against Southern Punjab at Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad

    Northern 529-5d, 133 overs (Mubasir Khan 170 not out, Abdul Faseeh 151, Umar Amin 89, Sarmad Bhatti 81; Hassan Khan 3-94, Ali Usman 2-143)

    Southern Punjab 128-2, 47 overs (Zain Abbas 69 not out, Salman Ali Agha 35 not out)

    Innings points – Northern (five), Southern Punjab (one)

    Toss uncontested - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa opt to bowl against Balochistan at Abbottabad Cricket Stadium

    Balochistan 473 all out, 123 overs (Azeem Ghumman 78, Kashif Bhatti 71, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai 69, Ali Waqas 59, Haseebullah 53, Khurram Shahzad 47; Arshad Iqbal 4-114, Mohammad Sarwar Afrid 2-55, Ihsanullah 2-104)

    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 151-5, 45 overs (Kamran Ghulam 64 not out, Adil Amin 39, Rehan Afridi 20 not out; Khurram Shahzad 2-37)

    Innings points – Balochistan (five), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (two)

    Balochistan: Butt, Banglazai, Haris, Shafiq, Talat, Haseebullah (wk), Amad, Yasir, Bhatti, Shehzad, Wali.

    Verdict: Sadly another wooden spoon beckons. Can't see how they'll take 20 wickets consistently or get enough runs on board without Imam and Shan. Hope Akif bounces back, he's struggled post ACL injury.

    CP: Abdullah, Abid, Azhar, Tahir, Saad, Qasim, Shan (wk), Yamin/Mir, Maqsood, Ali, Hunain.

    Verdict: Tayyab Tahir will bolster their batting and provide attacking impetus. As last season, my concern is taking 20 wickets against the top sides. Making Usama Mir your frontline spinner is a gamble with a FC avg of 41. Safi Abdullah is demoted to 2nds. Ahmed Daniyal and Hunain Shah haven't played FC cricket but offer pace - the latter looked decent in National T20.

    KPK - Farhan, Ashfaq, Nabi, Kamran, Adil, Rehan (wk), Usman, Sajid, Arshad, Irfanullah, Ihsanullah.

    Verdict: Very strong and balanced squad. Gritty batsmen and terrific seam attack. Favourites again but they've lost two finals this year. Waqar Ahmed is promoted - he averaged 45 for KPK 2nd XI.

    Northern - Huraira, Faseeh, Amin, Faizan, Sarmad, Mubasir, Rohail, Mehran, Kashif, Waqas, Mahmood.

    Verdict: No real changes. Plenty of exciting youngsters with spotlight on Huraira after topping the runchart last year. Abdul Faseeh will look to build a good FC debut. Hope Mehran and Mubasir get plenty of overs under their belt, PAK lack good Test spinners. Can they finally win the big prize after two final defeats ?

    Sindh - Saim, Bin Yousuf, Saud, Saad, Fawad, Sarfraz (wk), Faraz, Hamza, Umar, Abrar, Asghar/Mudassar.

    Verdict: Strong batting as ever. All eyes on Saim Ayub after an excellent National T20. Bin Yousuf and Saad Khan are decent young batsmen too. However, the seam attack is very weak. Only Mir Hamza is proven. Mohammad Umar is rated but hasn't played FC cricket since 2020. Ghulam Mudassar averaged 41 in 2nd XI tournament last season. Where's Sohail Khan ?

    SP - Zain, Salahuddin, Rafiq, Salman, Babar, Siddiq (wk), Randhawa, Hasan, Usman, Bashir, Gul.

    Verdict: SP have bolstered their seam attack and with last season's leading QEA wicket-taker Ali Usman, they finally look capable of taking 20 wickets regularly. The opening pair of Zain Abbas and Tayyab Tahir is broken, but they've plenty of runs in them. Yousuf Babar made a nice start to his FC career so intrigued to see how he gets on.

    Should be another cracking season but some surprising omissions with no Imam-ul-Haq (perhaps as he abruptly left Somerset after his father had a heart attack - IA he recovers), Zafar Gohar, Sohail Khan and Mohammad Abbas (resting after his Hampshire stint ?)

    @Titan24 @KingOfPakBreakfast @shamaan would you go differently with your lineups and how do you rate the squads ?
    Solid squads.

    I wont change much;

    Balochistan; As you said Akif have been struggling but, at the same time we know his ceiling so would personally like him to play as much cricket as possible. Ofcourse team will have to look from winning perspective as well but, I believe as he plays more he should be able to get his normal rhythm back.

    CP; Ahmed Daniyal was good in terms of pace and thinking in recent National T20. I agree with your lineup but should be in the mix as backup to Hunain or vice versa as they both offer that extra pace which is always handy on surfaces we have to offer.

    Northern; Despite his struggles so far after initial hype in Pakistan circle during U19 days, Musa still offers that extra pace and would be a good option in the XI. Would be pretty easy to adjust him with decent batting depth available in the form of Nauman, Mehran who can be the spinners.
