    In the meantime, it's probably the first time that Younis had a change of heart

    Younis had initially ruled himself out of Pakistan's tour to Bangladesh in April and May, and agreed to a deal with Yorkshire until late May. But he had a change of heart and has now declared himself available for that tour.

    Bizarre, they have dropped Shezhad from tests, had done very well against Australia and New Zealand, and I actually think its his best format. His exclusion from the ODI squad is a tricky one, but can they play Azhar and he in the same side?
    I assume it will be Babar or Sami opening instead, and still no sign of Fawad in the test squad, seems the most obvious replacement for Misbah long term.

    ODIS? Perplexed about the lack of Babar in that squad though, and the inclusion of Shafiq is insane. His record in that format is dire, hopefully he is just carrying drinks. Umar been dropped is fair enough, he needs to get his attitude adjusted.

    Although wouldn't have dropped him from t20, excluding from ODI cricket probably would have been enough to get the message across.


    Pakistan Test squad: Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sami Aslam, Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Haris Sohail, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Shah, Zulfiqar Babar, Sarfraz Ahmed, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Sohail Khan, Rahat Ali

    Pakistan ODI squad: Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Fawad Alam, Azhar Ali (capt), Mohammad Rizwan, Haris Sohail, Sohaib Maqsood, Sami Aslam, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz, Rahat Ali, Ehsan Adil, Sohail Khan

    Pakistan T20 squad: Ahmed Shehzad, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez, Mukhtar Ahmed, Sohaib Maqsood, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Rizwan, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi (capt), Sohail Tanvir, Saad Nasim, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Khan, Umar Gul, Junaid Khan

    Yeah, we'll see if he is anywhere near threatening with his new action.

    Then again, it's Bangladesh so how threatening he still is might be misleading.

    Bangladesh play spin pretty well, plus the pitches there are mostly very flat, it'll be a bit difficult to judge his performance.

    Compared to Zim, NZ maybe, in those conditions anyways. Not making them rank turners is their key to success here.

    Any spinner (or bowler for that matter) that does well in Bangladesh must have some chops, pretty hard to consistently threaten on those pitches and Bangladesh are pretty decent as a batting side on them

    Bangladesh are favourites in their conditions now especially against Non-Asians sides. They played well in the world cup in conditions they barely even play on. Do not forget in the last few ODIs between Bangladesh-Pakistan it went to the wire and Afridi was the difference. Afridi has retired from ODIs.

    Prediction:

    ODIs - 2-1 to Bangladesh
    Tests - 1-0 to Pakistan

    Dropping Shehzad from the test squad is very very strange. There've been some disciplinary issues with him but if they wanted to punish him for that, why pick him in the t20 squad?

    Pakistan logic!

    Afridi and he are very close, so maybe initially they were going to drop him from everything like they did with Umar, but he got involved?

    I think Shezhad would have got the message to behave if he had been dropped from the limited overs stuff but retained for test cricket the format which is his strongest and the format where he did very well last year.

    Babar or Aslam will open, both are very young and neither average close to 40, interesting to see how it pans out.

    A lot of reasons not to pick Ajmal, age, and worry over his action. However as he has been so awesome for them, I understand the gamble, heck they have made much more left field calls recently. Worse case scenario, he bombs and they lose, plenty more series to play afterwards and no shame in losing to this Bangladesh side.

    Test side


    Hafeez
    Babar/Aslam
    Younis
    Misbah
    Shafiq
    Sarfraz
    Riaz/Junaid/Rahat
    Rahat/Riaz/Junaid
    Ajmal
    Babar/Shah


    ODI Side

    Azhar
    Sarfraz
    Hafeez
    Shafiq (ffs)
    Fawad
    Sohail
    Maqsood
    Shah
    Wahab
    Ajmal
    Khan

    I like how you've managed 16 options but yet only named 10 players in the Test team.

    Few changes I would like to see in the team:

    ODIs
    - Soumya to open ( Anamul is injured)
    - Mushfiq to come at no. 3 position
    - Please don't pack the team with 8 batsmen. Someone like Nasir coming at no 8 is ridiculous
    - Jubair, the leggie, should play as attacking and wicket taking option

    Tests
    - Would like to see neither of Soumya, Taskin in the Test Squad. They should instead play BCL, longer domestic format, which clashes with the series and build and prepare themselves more there before playing Tests. But knowing the culture, they will probably be blooded in
    - Mominul should continue as prime no.3 in Tests
    - Mushfiq should come before Shakib at no. 5 and Mullah at no. 4

    * Khulna pitch is absolutely a belter, please grow some grass there

    Shoaib Maqsood ruled out of limited overs due to injury.

    Also Soumya has knee injury. Probably he'll not take part in the series.

    That is a big loss for Pakistan, not many hitters in the side now with that and Umar and Afridi gone, its a big call, but if Hafeez fails his test, Bangladesh are big favs for the ODI series at least.

    Azhar
    Safraz
    Hafeez
    Shafiq
    Sohail
    Fawad
    Nasim

    (4 bowlers)

    Its a very beatable side.
    No clue what order they will put 4,5,6 and 7 in tbh though.
