Amir, Wahab, Fakhar and Imam are dropped and Malik and Hafeez are back, Mashallah.

If these are the players we will play T20, which is highly likely, than humiliation awaits us in the World T20.

This selected squad should be good enough reason to ask Misbah to at least resign as a Chief Selector, respectfully.

Amir should have been there. Test cricket doesn't have anything to do with t20.

Amir is rightly kicked out

If you don't want to play test cricket for Pakistan then Pakistan doesn't need you in T20 too

Aamir - selfish, lost swing, doesn't respect green shirt
Wahab - old workhorse might be retained for Wt20
Fakhar - hit or miss
Imam - selfish, parchi

Why not drop them? Only one of these guys who deserves a spot is Wahab but no problem with giving him a rest
and testing out younger bowlers. Shaheen, Haris, Hasnain are all faster than Aamir and are more respecting of the country they represent.

you cant expect a superstar and a good bowler to have the same attitude.

Did I say those 4 were hard done by? If yes, than show me.

I appreciate they are gone, but whats the point to have 2 geezers back?

Minus bowling Hafeez doesnt provide the balance, which he used to in the past. And at age of almost 40, I am not sure how he will perform in come T20. Not to mention, he flunked in the CPL, the T20 blast, so whats the rational behind is selection is beyond many (myself included).

If Misbah must had to bring back these two, than Kamran (as batter) would be better option than Hafeez, who cant bowl anymore.

Also, Usman Qadar, seriously? Based on what he is opted?

Only thing I agree with you on is Qadir selection. Malik is highest run getter for Pakistan in T20s and he recently scored an 80 in BPL. Hafeez is a decent top order batsman and I do think there are better options but his experience can't be bought. I want these 2 gone but there needs to be some experienced heads in the squad especially for a young captain like Babar. Kamran is better but he spoiled his chances and Rizwan is a better keeper than him. I do think Kamran, Umar Akmal, and Ahmed Shehzad need to be given more chances but not this close to world cup.

Check Malik and Hafeez stats in SENA, specially in AUS, where come T20 will be played and than keep your biased aside and think logically. These two have been flopped in AUS and will be flopped again, bookmark this post.

FYI - what others think about these two chuckleheads.

Ok what other options are there for experienced players? I am not biased and I am thinking logically there needs to be someone experienced to support Babar who is a very young captain with heavy burden on his shoulders. I would rather have Sarfraz come back and then you can get rid of both Malik and Hafeez since Sarfraz was very good T20 captain. Sarfraz and Babar could be like Dhoni and Kholi when Kholi was first given captaincy.

T20 World Cup is approaching and we are not even sure about which players should be in t20 teams. First we give rest to senior players and then bring them back when youngster dont perform in few matches. Make your team and stick to it instead of doing experiment after experiment ...Sahadab khan, asif ali and amir khan are good for t20 ...Wahab leak too many runs and hafeez is failure ..malik still has got some experince in playing different league

Short answer, there is nobody to support Babar atm. We had Fakhar who had been worked out and hardly do any damage at the top of the order. And same goes for Asif, who can hit big.

This leaves us with uncle Iffi and maybe Imad, who can do some firework in the latter part of the innings.

My hope is that Sharjeel will shine in come PSL-5 and make his way back to the team and same goes for Asif. These two would be much better replacements for Malik and Hackfeez.

Guess what...midget aka Mushfiqur Rahim refused to play t20 matches in Pakistan, white this mofo was part of the PSL last year. Why are we even hell bend to bring them here, they have almost zero commercial value outside their own country.
