    poor guy sarfraz completely axed from the team along with captaincy rizwan promoted abruptly and sarfraz not even considered for back up role in case rizwan fails again, unprecedented in Pakistani cricket history.

    should have really performed himself, but i still think that misbah and PCB are just playing favoritism politics/regional politics here.

    Sarfraz hasnt performed in a single match
    While Rizwan has ton and 50s in same time,
    Rizwan was kept getting ignored because of sarfraz.

    Its all Sarfraz fault, lost fitness , not performing, team keeps lossing you cant keep him in team just because hes captian

    can you compare the batting stats of rizwan and sarfraz to show how is rizwan remarkably better than sarfraz? sarfraz can keep better than rizwan, not to mention sarfraz has leadership qualities which rizwan hasnt. Secondly, sarfraz couldn't even make it to top 15 given he has remained captain for two years, while rizwan on many occasions was added as back up keep for sarfraz, so was sarfraz so horrible that he couldn't even make it to top 15?

    Sure my friend here you go with Stats , Will go with stats as both batsman have more than 20 international games as its enough time to prove and show the capabilities
    International ODI
    Century, Fifty Stands & Scoring rate
    Sarfraz has 2 100s & 11 50s in 116 Matches at 87.80 Average 33.85
    Rizwan has 2 100s & 3 50s in 32 Matches at 89.58 Average 33.57
    So You can see Rizwan is a much better batsman than Sarfraz with higher strike rate
    Boundaries
    Sarfraz 172 4s & 12 6s
    Rizwan 61 4s & 6S
    Here again, boundary hitting capabilities Rizwan has the lead

    In Fielding, Rizwan has 13 Catches
    In Fielding, Sarfraz has 0

    In Wicket keeping
    Sarfarz has 114
    Rizwan has 17 ( but Sarfraz was wicket keeping in many of his games )
    So cant really say anything on this.

    In the last 17 Matches, Sarfraz has made 408 Runs, Average run 24
    in Last 5 Matches Rizwan played he made 245 Runs, Average runs 49
    in 2018 Sarfraz
    Played 14 Matches he made 231 runs at Average 16.5.

    Sarfraz now is almost 33, While Rizwan is almost 28
    Who you think Pakistan should select and promote for upcoming years
    And from these Stats, no Sarfraz doesn't deserve any spot in Pakistani cricket team.

    :lol::lol:

    this portion really cracked me up

    To sum your stats, rizwan isnt anything better in anyway, sarfraz ahmed did lose his form quite recently especially after champions trophy, but the added factor of him captaining and wicket keeping at the same time, can be excused, what excuse do you think rizwan had when he was not even wicket keeping with such poor ODI stats? if you remove his recent centuries, his stats drop to 20s, his hundreds came just recently. Sarfraz was preferred over rizwan because he was a better keeper, better batsman and not to mention, he was leading the team.

    comparing rizwan and sarfraz is like comparing apples and oranges.

    I wonder after observing continuous decline in Sarfraz performance and fitness still you are accusing Misbah of favoritism. Even we are not victorious in Australia if team shows resilience then I think Misbah should be cherished instead of baseless favoritism claims. The one guy who should get chance in T20 is Saif Badar and perhaps later Ammad Butt. Meanwhile in test cricket perhaps Fawad Alam deserves a come back.

    Moreover how a captain without any performance can motivate other players. Thee doors for Srafraz have not been closed he may come back on basis of solid performance.

    You call 2 years recently? , How many ODIs ? has Pakistan won in his captaincy?
    You must be joking right lol if you remove his recent matches he didn't play a single match in 2018, Which excuse Sarfraz had? he was lazy ?.
    He was leading the Team to what? Loses upon loses.

    That Portion would crack you up , as a player who played less than 1 month in 2 years Cricket Performed better than Pakistani Captian did in 2 Year lol.

    Misbah may be right or wrong only time will tell PCB has selected him, he needs time and he has enough time.

    He is choosing the performing players on national and international circuits & he cant just simply add everyone.

    I m with you on Fawad he does deserve a chance but the problem is PCB has ruined is carrier already he may be fit but hes even older than Sarfraz and max he will do on the international stage is maybe 3 years if you push the limits 4 or 5.

    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?

    Watch out for Naseem Shah. Apparently he is by far the fastest bowler in Pakistan and bowls around the same pace as Shoaib Akhtar used to.

    Shinwari not looking fit in recent domestic matches more over Nasim Shah and Musa Khan are not lesser bowlers than Shinwari by any means.

    I dont have problem with Musa and Nasim, I have issue with M.Irfan and his downright pathetic fitness. Where will you hide him in the field?

    He is already 37 (unofficially must be even more), which means he has no future, so whats the point to select him?
