Test team looks very new.
No Fakhar in Test team is a bit surprising.
Test 11 will be :
Or they can open with Azhar and play Iftikhar in place of Abid
We will finally lose Test with innings defeat, been a long time coming
and why no ODs
Misbah has lost the plot here!
A decent team let's be honest however I feel Ehsan Adil would have been better as compared to Imran Sr
So all those that predicted doom & gloom...that Misbah is anti-youngsters etc have gone silent...anda on your faces hehe.
‘No conspiracy behind dropping Sarfraz Ahmed’ Misbah-ul-Haq
Pakistan cricket team’s chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq reacted on the recent protests in Karachi and reports in the favor of former captain Sarfraz Ahmed.
The chief selector-cum-head coach stated that there is no conspiracy behind removing Sarfraz as captain from all three formats.
“I want to make it clear that PCB’s chairman has the constitutional right to make decision about captaincy. And as far as the decision about removing Sarfraz is concerned so it is based on just his poor form and nothing else,” Misbah told the reporters in Lahore in a presser in which he announced Test and T20I squads for Australia tour.
“Neither i have any personal issues with Sarfraz nor anyone else in the board. The only reason is his performance that ousted him from the team. Sarfraz is a good player and if he gains his performance back while playing domestic cricket, he will make comeback,” he added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the PCB removed Sarfraz from captaincy in all three formats of the game with immediate effect. Despite having won 12 T20I series out of 14 as captain he was overthrown by inexperienced Babar Azam while the Test captaincy has been given to already tested Azhar Ali.
The board’s decision was followed by immense criticism as cricket fans highly opposed the decision of removing one of the most successful captains in Pakistan’s cricket history. On Sunday, fans gathered outside Sarfraz’s residence in Karachi and demanded justice for the wicket-keeper batsman.
Its seems to me a mixed beg goodies, some are good and some are bad.
First and foremost, why is Imran Khan sr has been selected again, based on what?
Good decision to drop Faheem but 10 times worse decision to select Muhammad Irfan who is 37 (unofficially will be more ) and horribly unfit.
Usman Qadir, seriously? again why? What has he done to warrant selection?
And why Shinwari wasnt picked for T20?
Shinwari is nothing special tbh. But yea..Irfan/Imran selection makes no sense.
Imam ul Haq
Musa Khan / Imran Khan
Azhar Ali (c)
Mohammad Rizwan (wk)
Babar Azam (c)
Mohammad Rizwan (wk)
Still cannot figure out how Usman Qadir made it. He said not very long that he wants to play for Australia 100%.
Did you notice how quickly he dropped Akmal and Shehzad for the third T20 game to save his ass?
If he had a little substance, he would’ve stood behind his decision and had given them a longer run because he thought those poor guys didn’t get enough chances - but - as we all knew, it was a blunder of stupid decision. And if he continued with them, he would surely be shown the door.
So basically he is on the edge with PCB, a couple of more stupid decions and hopefully he will be out.
He included the youngsters due to presssure of being sacked. Otherwise, I am sure he would’ve included both Akmal brothers, Shehzad and who knows what else.
Well done Misbah!! Justified your 28 lac salary!! Musa Khan, Naseem Shah, Imran Khan, Mohd Irfan and Khushdil Shah - simply superb!!
Mohammad Irfan is finished.
He will do wonders on Australian pitches in t20 format with full license to bowl as quick as he can!!
Yep, and from what I know from the dumb efff mindset of Misbah, he must've thought that Irfan is tall and will be producing unplayable deliveries on the bouncy Aussie pitches. Not knowing that, Irfan can't bowl more than 3 overs straight before he breaks into pieces, PLUS there is ONLY ONE wicket in Australia that is bouncy, and that is in Perth. Do we have have a game there?
And how is he going to hide Irfan on the field? He can't run, can't bend, can't throw, can't dive.
Irfan "quick"? lol
Nah he played it sweet. Selected Akmal/Shahzad knowing they will probably fail- he himself was accused of ‘destroying’ Akmal.
Akmal lovers can see for themselves now how bakwaas Akmal is. Thanks Misbah!
So he preferred Pak to lose the T20 series in an effort to put down Akmal's lovers?
He should be sent to jail for it.
And then from what you are saying, Misbah actually LIED that these two a-holes didn't get enough chances?
Who is Musa Khan?
Nice to see new fast bowlers. Let's see what happens.
Musa Khan plays for Islamabad and is quick!! Plays for Islamabad united in psl!!
yaar jab 50 saal ka Shoaib Akhtar t20 mein itni tez bowling karata hai to 37 yr old Irfan can too!!
T20 is the shortest format where you have to bowl 4 overs just! Run in and bowl quick thats it!!
T20 mein agar quick bowling kamyaab hoti tou aaj hur taraf quick bolwers ki fouj hoti.
T20 mein slow bowling kamyaab hai.
Deykhtay hain tamasha phir, kia hota hai Irfan ki "quick bowling" k sath Australia mein?
