    I will never go to watch them in stadium even if playing a mile from my home unless I see some lads in the team who care & feel pride in playing for Pakistan.

    Hey everyone,

    When I saw the world cup squad announced by Inzimam and the obsession of Mickey Arthur with Bits and Pieces players as well as 'Phaast' bowlers, I knew this world cup would be one of the most embarrassing outings we will have.

    Mickey Arthur and his management has completely taken over the Captains role and even though Sarfaraz hasn't played well recently, he has never been this bad a captain. Sarfaraz's PSLs teams are an evidence of his grit and Captain's mindset but we haven't been able to see that Sarfaraz since the CT time. It might be grouping from Hafeez and Malik or it might be a psychological reason but I am sure that there's something wrong.

    Sarfaraz never plays with non-specialist spinners (I don't consider Shadab a specialist spinner) and he doesn't have this unhealthy obsession with part timers so I am pretty sure Mickey has completely taken over every decision that Sarfaraz makes. However, that is no excuse for the bad performances that Sarfaraz has been giving so I guess he has to leave as well but that wouldn't solve the problem.

    Sack Inzimam and Sack Mickey Arthur

    From 2015 I have seeking replacement of grant flower and since end of 2017 hope that azhar gets dropped but nothing happen.

    I said it in WC2015 that I was scared to watch pakistan play n this time i have surely didn't watch them play once they opted to bowl first.

    Now is a time to make sure that malik,hafeez and even sarfraz don't play match in remaining WC2019.

    The problem is, we really don't have a good Captain aside from Sarfaraz (When given his natural style).

    Imad? Joke. Babar? Too young and unproven. Aamir? Maybe, but he has a tainted past.

    Sarfraz is darpok. He said English team is darpok. I don't care about wining or losing. I want to have a smart, intelligent, good looking captain. Pakistan will not catch up India but they can play more competitive cricket. Sarfraz is a joker. Not great tactics, he's got a backwards mentality/mindset, his fitness is poor, his body language is weak and he cannot inspire anyone, his tactics are rubbish. He has no ettiquite as well. Yawning on the field, screaming like a donkey, he's short, cannot speak properly.

    Someone like Fakhar or Shaan Masood.

    India were missing their gun opener, one of their strike bowlers got injured after a couple of overs and their captain gave himself out. And they still whipped us lol

    I am no fan of mediocre Malik/Hafeez but the blame for playing them for decades lies with the establishment, coaches, captains, selection committees and everyone who enabled them at the PCB. A person will back themselves, that is natural, so hard to blame a person themselves for wanting something. There is not much honor in Pakistan cricket where players select themselves out.

    Don't forget that Afridi and Razzaq failed game after game as well, it was very frustrating to see them not finish so many games when they were needed but the good thing was that Afridi and Razzaq (early on) could play just as bowlers with the batting as a bonus.

    No, just sit out Sarfraz, Malik, Hafeez, Hasan and other seniors and let youngsters have a go. May be even send some of them home and let some other youngsters have this experience. Sending these failures to the WC is an opportunity cost and a catch 22 when it comes to providing youngsters experience so they are ready for the next big tournament.

    Yeah that’s what I mean in a role like Shadab. They can bowl and bat when needed but the difference is does anyone really expect Shadab to win it for us from here if rain stops? Was it Afridi, the hope would remain.

    Ironic how we bowled first but in the end rain has ruined us. Would have required 124 from 60.

    It is evident that Sarfaraz is behaving like a dummy captain. His body language shows he is least bothered, Noone to back him up, not a single player coming to tap each other. Team is divided

    if we're looking for culprits, first place to look would be Inzamam and Micky Arthur. the pre tournament selection debacle was strange and couldn't have been good for team morale. recalling Wahab screamed of desperation and an admission of guilt too. Shoaib Malik and Hassan Ali have been in horrific form too, why play them today? also 100% agree about the lack of specialists . i took our spin production line for granted, we've had ****all since Ajmal

    I don’t even blame the players. Blame is on the incompetent board, selectors, coach and captain. We’ve had 4 years to prepare for this tournament yet we only have 3 players (Amir, Babar & Shadab to an extent) that can compete on this level.

    Worst part about it is that this will never change in Pakistan cricket and having any hopes on Pakistan cricket is pointless.
