i meant as players not coaches.

and abbas might be toasted post-injury but he got them a lot of success beforehand. my point is i agree, they shouldn't feel the need to pick kids without fc wickets.

Selectors never selected them when they were at the peak of their careers. Now they have lost pace & bowl at Ellsye Perry's pace.

on the other hand, we have Haris Rauf, Musa, Hasnain & Naseem who have pace but are not Test quality.

Terrorism, corruption & Lack of International Cricket in Pakistan has badly effected our Cricket.

Lol I saw that on PP yesterday. Just disgraceful stuff and yet another indictment of the culture of Pakistan cricket.

CEO Wasim Khan :
"There should be some continuity and security in contracts. We do give contracts in good faith and this cricket committee meeting will not necessarily recommend a change. This is purely a review and assessment of the cricket we have played so far"
Misbah & Waqar also have the backings of PMIK.

To be fair Amir and Asif would have both easily been 200+, possibly even close to double that had they not been a bunch of fixers. So the issue isn't that Pakistan cricket cannot produce good fast bowlers, the issue is :

1. They were cheating fixers who got themselves banned and jailed.
2. As cnerd123 says, we don't really stick with players and get impatient with them too quickly.

Imran Butt didn't impress with batting but he is a specialist slip fielder. He took 6 imp. catches in this series. Selectors should persist with him or at least keep him in the squad as a sub fielder.

Very telling that our one performing pace bowler is the one Waqar has had no time to work with. Now, Waqar will make some adjustments to his action (just like what he did with Naseem) & he will go downhill after those adjustments.
PCB should get rid off MisQar asap.
