    Edgbaston has been flowing with runs if you look at the warm-up games & the Kiwis too set-up for 350 at one stage.

    Not much of a limited overs bowler, can't really justify picking him with Wasim and Khan about.

    Pakistan need to look at binning at least one of Shezhad and Hafeez, Zaman and Sohail the obvious replacements. I'd assume Junaid replacing Riaz is a cert.

    Sa will have a settled side so they can play the exact side as last time. Pakistan need drastic changes and I'd go with:

    Ali
    Shehzad (last chance)
    Zaman
    Azam
    Malik
    Sarfraz wk c
    Shadab
    Ashraf
    Amir
    Hassan
    Khan

    No need for Imad , especially against hard hitting sa side. Shadab gets turn and can bat just as well or bad. Ashraf looks like a decent bowler ABD can certainly strike it.

    And hafeez and riaz obviously need to be sent home.

    Malik
    Sarfraz
    Shadab
    Fahim
    Hassan

    Junaid

    I'm pretty sure I've seen Haris Sohail play before and he looked all over the place. But whetehr its keeping Shehzad or not, Pakistan need to bring in Zaman.

    This will be a another hiding for Pakistan. No matter what they do they're just 2 decades behind the rest of the world. Can't just catch up overnight.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Shehzad out, Fakhar Zaman in the squad. With Sharjeel gone, Fakhar-Azhar should be the combo to persist with in preparation for the World Cup. It's not ideal but it's the best available. Shehzad needs to be booted out right about and Fakhar needs at least 2 solid years in international cricket before the World Cup.

    I am content with Shezhad in the test squad, but enough is enough regarding limited overs cricket. I'd also agree Farkhar and Azhar opening is the way to go. I admit Azhar is not the ideal long term option, but this is not like when England decided to bin Bell and Cook because they had numerous younger guns who would likely enhance the team, Pakistan don't have those options. Azhar will have to do for now.

    Correct. And Azhar can somewhat score close to 90 SR if he gets someone like Sharjeel or Fakhar or Babar from the other end. His innings against West Indies last year was a good example. Even against India he started well, but Shehzad, Babar's wickets and then Hafeez's horrid show created pressure on him and he got bogged down.
    Again, he is a great ODI batsman and will never be, but if 2,3 and 4 are Fakhar, Babar, Haris, then you can build a top order around that.

    I don't want Shehzad in the Test squad either. There is no way I will prefer him over Sami Aslam.

    Hopefully Fakhar plays. I don't think any point in time in cricket has been so full of great names as this one. Dickwella, de Kock, Root, Willey, Ball, Fakhar.

    Pakistan beat a pretty strong SA side in 2015 and with the saffers not the best at handling tight situations, Pak have a shout but they have to select the right side.

    I'd still pick SA as faves lol

    South Africa could score as many as they want if they bat first here. 400+ if the weather stays away.
