    Will Inzi ever play for Pakistan again?

    He was not offered a central contract. One wonders if they will ever pick him again and risk his mere presence having a negative impact on the fresh captain.


    So, what do you think? IMO, it is a bit of a shame that once again one of the best players in a cricketing country is not picked because of factors other than his batting/bowling skills.

    There is a rumour that some senior players are not interested in having him in the team.

    The poll options don't cater to my needs, I'm afraid. I don't think he'll play again, but he most certainly should, so I don't want to vote for "They need to move on."

    I legitimately do not understand why he wasn't given a contract, though. As the cricinfo article explained, they said they wanted to go for youth - but they gave a contract to Misbah-ul-Haq for crying out loud, who hasn't played for Pakistan in three years and is 33.

    I don't rate Inzy nearly as highly as a lot of people here do, but it seems like complete madness not to pick him in the test team. All indications to say they won't, though.

    They wanted a like for like replacement, so thats why they replaced an Ul-Haq with another Ul-Haq.

    That could be the only logical explanation.

    Not really, everyone knows now that Woolmer had a natural death and that issue is as good as over now.

    Quite a lot of people believe that Inzi had turned in to a dictator in the latter half of his captaincy period he is also blamed for Ovalgate and there is a thinking that if he stays in the team then he will undermine Shoaib Mailk authority.

    it would be dreadful and horrible move to leave inzi behind.. inzi averaged over fifty in his latest years as captain and batsman in test cricket. with preasure of being captain he was doing this good.. here is his record as a captain
    31 test matches with average of 52.10 with 7 centuries and 14 half centuries..

    he could play much better now that he won't be playing as a captain in the team

    well, i suppose there's precedence of leaving your best player out of the team for other then cricketing reasons?

    it's a crying shame.
