    Honestly we didn't perform half bad beat high class teams like England and New Zealand won four game in a row

    If we didn't sh#t the bed so hard against west indies and loose we would be in the semis right now

    Inzi. Mickey and Sarfraz
    They spoiled the talent.
    When you make sarfraz captain who is thick skin but not leading in any way.
    Commander is back bone of troopers.
    When commander is coward like sarfraz. Team will have popcorns in stomach while performing.
    Remember role of morgen in english team development. Leadership skills like Kane Williamson.sorry to say Sarfraz has failed with Bat and as Captain. Poor field placement.
    He lack skills...
    Aus match was in our hand.
    Untill sarfraz let bowlers to lead.
    But its over. & Digress.
    Im tired of people who say we do not have wicket keeper options.
    Atleast have a look at Rizwan.
    There are many.
    But Perchi is GoD of management.

    That was mushtaq ahmed mushi
    WestIndies coach. An insider.
    Who trained them about pak team exploit. That U gv them bounce.
    Their hands will be frozen.
    Now thats not patriotism.

    Pakistan Cricket requires domestic pitches which would not only assist the bowlers, but also get our batsmen fully used to fast and bouncy pitches. It is in the mindset, if you're used to flat pitches, then that is all you can hope to bat on.

    Speaking of batsmen, physical fitness, is atrocious. The team needs to have a good routine to hit the gym, increase muscle endurance and mass according their body type and their specialty in the game. Physically fit players means tight fielding, catches are caught and runout throws draw blood.

    In terms of bowlers, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi, Muhammad Aamir should be paired off. Pakistan has exceptional talent, the only problem is harnessing this talent effectively and successfully.

    Like it or not, the performance of this mirrored EXACTLY the 1992 WC team (the win loss sequence etc), just that in 92wc we got through with luck depending on the results of other games and here we didn't, so technically you can't say anything about this time without saying the same to the 92wc team. And with the way we finally clicked in the last 4 games, had we made the semis there WAS A good chance we could have gone all the way :(

    But that is exactly what we have to focus on now, no more going through with a little bit of luck, we have to secure our spot in the playoffs now based on our own results and not relying on other teams. The youngsters performed well (for ppl playing in their FIRST EVER WC), I mean Babar Azam becoming the highest ever run scorer for any Pak batsman that too playing in his first and only WC, this guy will become a legend InshAllah, mark my words. Then you had Amir and Afridi FINALLY clicking. Harris Sohail playing in his 2nd WC has found full form so you see, consistency in selection in one way does pay off, but smart consistency! Fakhar and Imam are decent, yes they stuttered a bit, but they have great records and consistencies leading up to this WC, and this was the first WC for them. I think this whole young squad will be awesome by the next WC. One old horse is finally gone (Malik) and Hafeez still hasn't had the shame to announce his retirement yet, yes they served Pak well in the past but when you're 37+ and harming the team with consistent bad performances, you should have the morals to own up and step down.

    Hasan Ali has all the talent, and was the No.1 bowler in the world last year with the most wickets, but obviously he has been absolute crap this year. Wasim Akram attributed his form to consistently playing T20's everywhere and in every league in the world and not ANY FIRST CLASS game at all, and this has led him to absolutely forget how to bowl yorkers and good length balls. He should only be given a chance again if he plays first class consistently and performs there as well.

    Now Sarfraz is a tricky issue, as a captain he has achieved the most in LIMITED OVERS One day and T20 cricket after IK (you cannot deny this with he fact he won 2006 U-19WC, 2017 CT, losing only one T-20 series and having the record for most and longest T20 series wins as Captain and for a nation, keeping Pak at No.1 in T20 for almost 2 straight years now, 2 time runner up in PSL and one time winner). But any Captain MUST DESERVE HIS PLACE ON THE TEAM THROUGH HIS BATTING / BOWLING as well, and Sarfraz just hasn't done that at all as of late. He did come in higher in a couple of games and scored big in the recent Aus and Eng series and we have seen in the past that the guy can bat, but that's just it, why doesn't he do it regularly? And let's not even talk about his dreaded fitness.

    Some are going to jump at me for this but hear me out. I think he should be given one more chance, atleast for the T20 world cup next year (a format where he was only one series loss as captain) and with experience both playing and captaincy wise going into the next wc, he may be much more well equipped. But all this with a MANDATORY CONDITION. He has to bat at at least 2 or 3 down, nothing lower and lead from the front, especially now that Malik is gone (and hopefully Hafeez too). And No.2, he along with everyone else has to improve their fitness. If not, Mohammad Rizwan is the obvious choice to replace Sarfraz as a player. And as for captaincy in case Sarfraz is booted, I know Imad Wasim is being touted as the next captain, and yes he does have merit, but a uniform captain across all formats is much better and Wasim hasn't even played a test yet. Babar Azam is the only player who is assured of a place in all 3 formats, and as the best player on the team he will automatically get everyone's respect on the team, whether they agree with him or not, and I think he should seriously be groomed to be the next captain!

    So I think the team to spend time on to condition and prep for the next wc should be:

    Imam
    Fakhar
    Babar
    Sarfraz (ONLY WITH those above said conditions)
    Harris
    M. Rizwan
    Imad
    Shadab
    Amir
    Afridi
    Usman Khan

    and for the squad they can train

    M. Hasnain
    Hasan Ali (again with those conditions)
    Asif Ali
    Abid Ali

    One thing is sure - the Patriotism and Nationalism of especially New Zealand and England was outstanding and totally professional, on the other hand Pakistani cricket players, PCB management, support staff and ex-players does not even come near to the professional patriotism standards of other countries. NZ, Eng, only lacked the passion which is found in Pakistan but Pakistanis lack the consistency, teamwork, professionalism and utmost nationalism if they will ever win Worldcups in coming decades.

    Pakistan Team Manager Talat Ali has issued an “all is well” report, after the Men in Green’s disappointing 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup campaign.

    According to details, Ali has termed the attitude and discipline of the cricketers exemplary while also stating that news of grouping within the side as baseless.

    The report gave a detailed account of team’s activities during the event and stated that no incident of violation of discipline occurred during the long tour, while the players fully complied with the curfew time as well.

    PCB congratulates Sana Mir on induction in ICC Women’s Committee

    About the news of grouping within the team, he said that the players had no differences and everyone played with unity. The team made a comeback after initial defeats but it was unfortunate for them to not make it to the semi-finals.

    After losing to India, Ali issued clearance to the players involved in the Sheesha Cafe scandal. He said that the pictures that were seen on the media were from two days before the match.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has stated that they are yet to receive such a report but sources have confirmed that Ali handed over the report to, one of, PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani or Managing Director Wasim Khan during a meeting in London

    New coach
    new captain
    new management
    Repeat

    This is our cricket. We will not make any meaning ful headway if we dont change our approach. Pakistan started playing desperate brand of cricket after getting real thrashing from follower after India defeat. This approach is extremely unprofessional. Some players including the captain have big tond - fat, bulging belly. Are you expecting this from a professional cricketer nowadays when fitness opportunities and facilities are abundant?

    I hoping something better. As Waseem Khan will call the shots. I hope we modernize our domestic cricket. Mental strength, which we lack and fitness that we lack too in equal measure cant be improved without improvement in domestic cricket.

    And please. PSL wont find you good Test cricketers at all and may be some ODI players at some time.
