    Kaneria isn't good enough with the ball to justify his place in the ODI outfit considering his crud fielding and batting.

    Plus Pakistan have various spinning allrounders in the shorter form who they can use.

    Maybe because Kaneria is a rubbish ODI bowler. He's never actually done anything to suggest that he's a better OD spinner than the other options at hand for Pakistan.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I take it one of the spinning allrounders is Mr Afridi - Kaneria can't bat worse than he's done recently! I wonder how many times in the forthcoming SA ODI series Afridi will throw his wicket away by slogging it straight up in the air before he's played himself in - IMO 3 times (at least!)

    Considering Inzamam is quite possibly my second favorite player in the world, I'll go with him.

    Kaneria needs to stop whinging every time he doesn't get into the ODI squad, it just reflects poorly on his personality.

    Rehman is a great bowler plus he has a a good batting style too . For what I saw in the 20/20 competition ,Rehman proved himself to be an outstanding prospect. BUT I also have a valid point and that is that Danish already has enough international exposure plus I guess Danish hasn't played much in the ODI squad plus I guess that his bowling was not so so so so bad as compared to many many other ODI starters.It's not about the fasties or offies or overall the player value ,IMHO Kaneria may bring a good variety to the ODI squad . And also I never meant that Kaneria should be given a license to play in the Odis for like 5-6 years ,I believe that Kaneria should stay with the team tbh and he should be given some good chances to prove his worth .People often take me wrong when bar Saqlain/Murali (exceptional cases) ,I always give preference to a decent leggie to be a part of the international ODI squad . I firmly believe(as far as my playing experience is concerned) ,that in this modern day batsmen dominated ODI cricket a decent leggie is always going to be a problem for the Hammer heads !!!!

    Oh, certainly, he's a better bet than Sami anyday. But so are Shoaib, Asif, Shabbir, Gul, Shahid Naz, and hell, even Rana and Rao.

    I've seen Danish in Tests, yeah, and he sometimes looks the most accurate bowler in The World. But IMO he loses patience too easily, and patience is perhaps the single most important quality in a one-day bowler.

    You are right here but my point still stands that let him be tried at some point now . I guess it's worth it !!

    Thing is, though, the Rehmans and Arshads are deservedly ahead of him at present.

    Arshad's are a long gone stories and as far as Rehman is concerned I am pretty sure that he hasn't got any thing which we can say is way over Kaneria. And as I have mentioned earlier that look at the team , There are a few offies there and Kaneria may become a different variety . And once again I am not saying that Kaneria should be picked up right away for the WC squad ,I think that Kaneria should be given SOME chance and let him be tried for lets say hmmmm a couple of decent series .And Kaneria may not be worse than the usual failures in the team ... Like Imran said that atleast we should keep the decent players with the squad so that they keep on adjusting themselves mentally while being outside the ground ...........
