    Can't afford another bowler breakdown mid test, add to that the squad options are poor due to mo wasims clueless selections.

    Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq wants side to 'dominate' England in birth city of Multan

    Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq is looking for his side to "dominate" England as he prepares to play his first Test in his birth city of Multan.

    England secured a famous fifth-day win in the series opener at Rawalpindi - just their third Test victory in Pakistan - in a game in which they smoked 921 runs in just 136.5 overs across their two innings, including 506 from 75 overs on the opening day.

    Imam, who hit a century in Pakistan's first knock, believes the hosts could have been more aggressive in their second innings, in which they were dismissed for 268 chasing 343 as England ran out 74-run winners on the flattest of pitches.

    Pakistan must now triumph in Multan this week to keep their hopes of a series victory alive.

    Imam told Sky Sports Cricket: "There were chances [in Rawalpindi] which we didn't collect. We didn't bat well in the last session. I feel we could have won that Test match but hats off to the England boys. Ben Stokes' captaincy was brilliant.

    "Chasing 657 you are always behind so we have to survive and dominate as well. We didn't play the second innings that well. There were times we could have attacked and won the Test match.

    "Pakistan are famous for comebacks and we are hopeful we will come back stronger."

    "The way England are playing their Test matches is exciting. We are excited but we will control what is in our control. We have to be mentally strong and have new plans and hopefully it will be our day."

    Imam's 18th Test for Pakistan will be his first in Multan. The 26-year-old played three one-day internationals at the venue against West Indies in June, hitting half-centuries in each game, but says his first Test appearance there "is a feeling I cannot describe in words".

    He added: "I wanted to score a hundred [in the ODIs] but got out because of that excitement. I was very nervous.

    "It is going to be very exciting for me in the Test match. A big team like England is playing against us so it will be very special.

    "In early childhood I saw my uncle [Inazmam-ul-Haq] playing here. He won us a Test against Bangladesh so there are lots of memories."

    Imam also has fond recollections of Pakistan's last Test win over England on home soil, in Lahore in 2005, which he attended after hotfooting it from his nearby school.

    "I had to skip school [to see the game] but my mum didn't allow me," added the batter, who has scored each of his three Test tons to date in Rawalpindi.

    "My school was very near to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. My brother came to me - I remember the words - and he said, 'Pakistan is winning so we have to hurry'.

    "He said Shoaib Akhtar was bowling some very good reverse swing and yorkers. I remember he bowled some good slower deliveries."

    This Test is going to be a bigger embarrassment than the 1st. If the pitch isn't a square turner, I'm expecting an even harder beating with England going at 7.5 RPO from the outset. And with Wood playing, it will be a disaster for the batsmen as well.

    Its laughable that the team management is even considering Hasan Ali and Mohammad Wasim Jnr for the Test match. Both of them will go at 10 RPO. Also gives a slap on the face on all the bowlers in the domestic who are toiling away in first class for years. When you bypass them and give priority to a 4 over bowler like Haris Rauf and Wasim Jnr, resentment will naturally come.

    mohammad wasim has an average of 45 in fc crick cricket ,if he plays then we should discontinue our domestic cricket and pick players from psl alone.

    Have a turning pitch and Pak should do well with that line up.

    Faheem and Nawaz will contribute as much as Agha Salman.

    So better to have more bowling options.

    Please don't play the fake A/R Wasim jnr!!

    Pakistan need to win the toss and bad big or at least bat long.

    Has not been that long since the last test.

    Anderson, Robinson and Stokes may have not had that long to recover.

    Wood will only be used in short, sharp bursts.

    Also is Azhar Ali fully fit after his finger injury? If not a good chance to look at someone else.

    Not very hopeful.

    England has Wood back.

    Pakistan is struggling with its pacers.

    If Naseem doesn't play, it could be Ali, Wasim jr and Faheem as the attack.

    Shambolic move not to draft experience pacers like Hasan Ali or Abbas in, once again our seam attack will lack experience and quality. Who ever has made this decision no to do so needs the sack.

    It's not often that you're excited to see an away team more than your home team. Excited to see England carry on with their game and see how they play batting 2nd and 4th especially if there's anything for the spinners. I hope there is something in the pitch for seamers and spinners. But definitely more excited to watch Eng than Pak.

    Reading Babar's pre match comments & the fact that Abbas or Hassan Ali have not been drafted in the squad, they expect a turning pitch. Therefore I think the 11 will be something like this:

    1. Iman
    2. Abduallah
    3. Azhar
    4. Babar
    5. Saud Shakeel
    6. Rizwan
    7. Nawaz
    8. Faheem
    9. Nouman Ali
    10. Mohammed Ali or Naseem if fit
    11. Abrar

    Hope they are right as England are playing a not threatening spinner in Leach & a part time spinner in Jacks.

    Chief Selectors is becoming a dear burden day by day.

    Some shocking selections are ruining the fun.

    Ideal place to have so many better suited bowlers given a go..

    Currently all it seems is Shaheen or bust.
