I think that the No.6 batting spot deserves a vote all on its lonesome because it's pivotal to the make-up and balance of the team.
There are some great players to choose from. Here are some suggestions;
Will our team favour batting or bowling? Please choose a No.6 'batsman'......

Wouldn't it be better to do number 6 last, once the make-up of the bowling attack is known?
Tangy raises a fair point though.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Zaheer Abbas played his best cricket at 6 IIRC, so him for me
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Yeah, weird to choose #6 now IMO. We should pick the four bowlers, keeper and the openers first.. Imran will definitely get picked as one of the bowlers, then we can ask people to choose their 11th player - that could either be another bowler to send Imran up to 6 or another batsman to send him down to 7. That'd give better more control over what they were actually voting for IMO.
Anyway, Mushtaq Mohammed if we're going to do it like this.

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
Imran, Wasim & Waqar are auto picks. Imran I will pick for 7 as we have never produced a keeper who could match batting wise AT XI keepers from other sides and our best gloveman Bari was a genuine # 10.
For # 6 Salim Malik imo a better bat of quality bowling then both Mo Yo and Abbas was a dirty prick but then we all have our faults.
This is what we are doing right now, rather than at the very end during the 11th pick. Either way the outcome is exactly the same. It's just a matter of timing.
At least that's the way I see it because Imran is 100% guaranteed to get selected no matter what, but I could be wrong.

In a Pakistan ATG team, the batting needs to be strengthened due to the fact that our greatest keepers were weak batsmen. Imran should come in at 7. I think 4 bowlers are fine for the team considering the talent we have to chose from. Therefore, I want to pick a genuine batsmen at 6 to bolster the batting as much as possible.
Yousaf at 6.
