The only time recently that Rana has looked a ODI-class bowler was that WI series. Other than that, he's been woeful (as predicted by yours-truly) for the last year.

I guess there might be a case for dropping Rana, but then we'd be a seamer short, and I'm not sure how comfortable I am with either Razzaq or Mahmood opening the bowling. Malik, on the other hand is one of our best batsmen and our best allrounder. I don't see how you can say he doesn't "offer much" and I don't see how you can replace him with a guy who doesn't offer much at all with the bat.
Razzaq and Mahmood have opened plenty before.
And in any case - they can't possibly be worse than Rana!

Rana is a mystery bowler for me,he's either a top class performer or complete rubbish, someone here has very wrongly stated that Rana only bowled well in Pak Wi series.Truth is that Rana has won man of Series awards for his One day bowling before too, one was against India.
they dont need danish. they have afridi and hafeez who can bowl a few spin overs for them. and the fact is he cant bat and he isnt really that special of a bowler. very overrated. he aint no monty
