    Moin khan should just go!

    What is the guy doing in the team? Can't manage a catch, nor can he bat, the guy is simply past his best.


    Doesn't Pak has any young promissing WK comming up? is the situation so grim? (btw Kamran Akmal is CRAP) I suggest In such a case Pak should just ask Younis Khan to keep wickets.He's not much of a batsman but if he comes good behind the stumps, he might just be able to maintain his place in the team.

    I Just follow cricket irrespective of the nationality of the teams.


    As far as supporting the team is concerned, i can tell you as 2 which team i don't really support, but i'm pretty much sure that you knows that already!

    *cheers*

    Younis Khan is IMO nowhere near good enough to play ODI cricket especially.
    Moin Khan is only 33, not many people have become substandard at that age.
    I've not personally heard of any crucial chances he's fluffed.

    I guess by the same token Waqar and Anwar should also have been playing cricket.

    AS for the dropped chances, better stop hearing things and start watching cricket!

    Well, I'm very sorry for having TV stations that don't show every Pakistan Test and ODI! I watch what I can but I can't watch what isn't on. However, I do keep my eyes and ears open and usually wicketkeepers receive biting criticism that transcends the cricket World when they make pivotal mistakes.
    Waqar's economy had been very poor for the 2 year period before he was dropped. Anwar, meanwhile, would almost certainly still be playing if he hadn't had all the problems with injury that he did, plus the tragic death of his daughter.

    As much as I have loved Moin Khan for the past decade, I really do think its time for Pakistan to try out new WK to replace him. The match against India in Asia Cup, he had the chance to send their last batsman back to the pavillion twice in the last over, but he missed the potential run outs both times, allowing India to obtain the bonus point. That game made me wonder about him.

    As for the reason he is still playing for the team, Pakistan has only one real experienced player in their at the moment, namely Inzi. But they could always use him as a coach or something.

    BTW, how has Latif's performance been in the last games that he played in?

    surely your decision should be based on more than one incident?

    The incident was a very costly one, no doubt. Which should make Pakistan aware of the fact that they need to try out newer WKs. But you misunderstood me. I didn't mean to say that he should be replaced right away, but there should be a replacement ready to fill in for Khan that is god enough to fill his shoes. From before WC 92, all Ive ever seen is Lateef and Khan, nobody else really gets a chance in ODIs, except for when one of those were unable to play.

    BTW: Nobody answered my Lateef question, he was, IMO, a better WK than Khan, although a worse batsman.

    i would like to see kamran akmal be given a shot, hes a decent keeper and although his batting leaves a lot to be desired - im sure he'll improve with experience.
