    Icon5 Should Pakistan be allowed to borrow batsman from other nations?

    The only way they can maintain their test status and compete with other nations is by having decent batsmen in their team who can atleast collectively put up a score of 250 +. The current batch of Pakistani batsmen are hopeless at best, and there isn't much talent in the country .As such i think club cricketers from other nation who aren't required by national team should be allowed to ply for Pakistan side.That will not only give some respectibility to Pakistan team, but will also allow them to compete to a certain extend with other nations.

    WHY???????????????


    There are a lot of batsmen in Australia and India who are not required for national duties and they happen to be playing club/county cricket in foreign country ( S law and Kambli being few example).

    If they can play county cricket for other nation, then they can certainly play cricket for Pakistan team too.

    No one is going to play for any other nations.

    It defeats the purpose of international cricket. It would be a disaster

    It is a serious question, you say that noone will play for other nation, BUT there are examples of cricketers who actually did play for other nations. Infact some played for two nations in their career.

    Yeah, they emigrated, through choice (Like Hicky, Kepler Wessels).. They weren't "hired"

    It's quite clearly not serious. It's beyond doubt that the weakest sides in International cricket are Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, and the concept of International sport is it's between nations.

    Dual internationals have come from choice and/or emigration in the past, not transfers. It's a ridiculous idea and is solely aimed at riling Pakistanis.

    My point is if someone like say Vinod Kambli can play club cricket for South Africa, then why can't he play for Pakistan?
