  1. If Pakistan need 8 to 10 runs in last overs to win the match who will be the batsman in middle order and lower order ? Every body know Malik hafeez haris Sarfraz Rizwan are not a good hitter
    It is very ninsense selection

  2. I think according the performance of Psl and Pakistan cup kamran Akmal ,Umar Amal and Ahmed Shehza and khushdil shah should be included in the Wc team.no need to include two wks .Moreover Umar khan the young spinner should be in the team. we don’t need the old and injured Hafeez.

  3. I think according the performance the best team for Wc is following.
    Fakher zaman, kamran akmal, Ahmed Shehzad,Babar,Haris, Shoaib,Umar akmal, sarfraz, Imad, Shadab, Umar Khan, Shaeen Shah, Junaid Khan, HassanAli, Amir, Faheem, Hasnain, Asifali.
