    Azhar Mahmood and Hammad Azam are in same category of all rounders. But young Hammad Azam is a furious pinch hitter like Razzaq. So in my opinion Hammad Azam will be preferred. And i feel career for Kamran Akmal is over. He is probably 29-30 right now and he never improved his wicket keeping....of course can never forget that Sydney test in which he dropped Hussy thrice... But i don't understand why they are ignoring Wahab Riaz? He is such a strong man capable of bowling over 140 km/hr and that's what we need right now. Umer Gul, Wahab Riaz, Muhammad Sami, can become a ethal combination along with Saeed Ajmal and Shahid Afridi....

    This was announced and finalized today:

    Pakistan squad for Asia Cup
    Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Umar Akmal, Hammad Azam, Asad Shafiq, Shahid Afridi, Azhar Ali, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Umar Gul, Aizaz Cheema, Wahab Riaz.
    In: Nasir Jamshed, Sarfraz Ahmed.
    Out: Shoaib Malik, Imran Farhat, Adnan Akmal.
    Reserves: Ahmed Shehzad, Rahat Ali, Bilawal Bhatti, Afaq Rahim.

    This is poor selection. Why the heck did they pick Sarfraz? This man cannot bat.
    Also i think Imran Nazir should have been included.in the squad at least and Ahmed Shehzad should be brought up as a opener.

    Junaid Khan out of Asia Cup

    [​IMG]

    Junaid Khan, the Pakistan fast bowler, who sustained a knee injury during the recently-concluded England series, will not be available for the Asia Cup when the new selection committee chaired by Iqbal Qasim sits tomorrow to pick the squad. PCB sources have indicated that Junaid is likely to be out of action for three weeks.

    ESPNcricinfo understands that Junaid picked up the injury during training ahead of the second Twenty20 in Dubai. MRI scans revealed a fracture of the patella. Junaid had played a total of three matches on the tour - one Test, one ODI and one Twenty20 - and accounted for just one wicket.

    Junaid, 21, who graduated from the same Under-19 batch that Mohammad Amir came from, is also a left-arm fast bowler but his fledgling career has been hurt by injuries in the last few months. Incidentally Junaid was picked for the England series after he had freshly recovered from the abdominal tear he picked during the ODI series against Sri Lanka last year, which ruled him out for six weeks.

    Wow we are just playing only 2-3 fast bowlers now...

    Sri Lanka is favorite in Asia cup.
    Pakistan Batting is already very weak and still they added sarfraz ahmed as wicket keeper.Very pathetic decision.:hitwall:
    This is only our Bowling which we always rely.

    We rely on Spin bowling... India and Sri Lanka play Spin very well. This is NOT needed because the pitches in Bangaldesh are not like UAE

    Fast bowling is almost none... Having seamers was important because Indian players (Tendulkar, Ghambir, Sharma, Raina, Pathans) piss when they see our average pace at 140+

    If anybody is looking for results, please see below:

    Bangladesh < Pakistan < India < Srilanka.

    This is how it will go. No need to watch and boil your blood over it.

    we need a proper wicket keeper who could also bat like a professional batsmen

    I liked the inclusion of Nasir Jamshed and hopefully he would have learnt from his earlier mistakes and become a lethal part of this team in future

    Its about time when we might need to find replacement for Asad Shafiq as well... he hasn't been consistent in his performance and we cannot rely upon him
