    Pakistani batting lineup

    Discuss pakistani batting line up

    Now since Kamran is most likely going to kicked out, this should be the lineup in my opinion

    Asad Shafiq
    Ahmed Shehzad
    Misbah ul Haq
    Younis Khan
    Umar Akmal (wicket keeper)
    Abdul Razzaq
    Mohammed Hafeez
    Shahid Afridi
    Umar Gul
    Wahab Riaz
    Junaid Khan or Shoaib Akhtar

    you opinions??

    Whatever made you think that Asad Shafiq is a good opener.

    My line up would be

    Seaming Conditions

    Kamran
    Hafeez/Shehzad
    Younis
    Umar (wk)
    Misbah
    Shafiq
    Razzaq
    Afridi
    Abdul Rahman
    Gul
    Akhtar

    Flat pitch

    Kamran
    Hafeez/Shehzad
    Younis
    Umar (wk)
    Misbah
    Razzaq
    Afridi
    Gul
    Abdul Rahman
    Wahab

    Opnening partnerships of 11,28,6 and 5 in this World Cup so far does suggest a change at the top needs to be made, and while Kamran Akmal's keeping may be shot to pieces, he could be a useful opening option. I don't think Misbah is the answer at three personally, I think at 5 he gets the opportunity to resurrect the innings or help build on the foundations laid.

    Umar may be more effective promoted up the order, and the depth of the batting required would be dependant on the pitch they are to play on. Shahid and Razzaq at 7 and 8 gives excellent depth, but on a flat deck perhaps they could go six and seven.

    I think regardless of the configuration of the batting order, Misbah and Younis remain hugely influential figures on the batting front, and will be key in dictating how far Pakistan progress. They are the more reliable sources of substantial runs, and need to muster enough runs for their generally impressive bowling attack to take them home.

    Hafeez
    Umar (wk)
    Asad
    Younis
    Misbah
    Afridi
    Razzaq
    Wahab
    Ajmal
    Gul
    Shoaib

    That would be the lineup i'd want,but i think Afridi and Waqar have clearly stated that that they won't be playing an extra bowler.Plus there are also rumours of Umar Akmal opening the innings,so i think the team could end up like this:

    Hafeez
    Umar (wk)
    Kamran
    Asad
    Younis
    Misbah
    Afridi
    Razzaq
    Gul
    Ajmal
    Shoaib

    sez who?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Pakistan's batting = meh
    opening partnership is fragile
    middle order average
    A captain batting in the lower order who comes good once every 10 innings. The other times he biffs and bashes 20 runs or less then gets bowled or caught trying to clear the boundary.
    Pak batting 5/10

    The middle order is anything but everage.Misbah,Younis and Umar have been very good recently.And no,'recently' does not include the NZ game alone.

    0RI0N - that is because the captain is a bowler who bats a little. Hardly fair to expect bowlers to make significant contributions with the bat.

    who said asad shafiq is bad??? also i still wonder why they didn't select Azhar Ali for the worldcup, he is a solid test batsmen, could have used him in the middle overs

    If Razzaq is being kept in the team for his batting there's no way he should be down at 8. With the opening partnership not working out it may be a good idea to let Razzaq attack from the top of the order. Dropping Kamran for Shafique would add some stability to the batting and Umar is hardly going to be a worse keeper.

    This also lets you play the extra bowler in Riaz, who adds more variety to the bowling, would reprieve Gul from opening and Akhtar from death bowling. Him and Rehman make a perfectly competent 8-9.

    Mohammed Hafeez / Ahmed Shehzad
    Abdul Razzaq
    Asad Shafique
    Younis Khan
    Misbah-Ul-Haq
    Umar Akmal
    Shahid Afridi
    Abdur Rehman
    Wahab Riaz
    Umar Gul
    Shoaib Akhtar
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Kamran won't get the drop.I'm almost certain that barring any injuries,Shahzad will be dropped for the next game and Umar Akmal will replace him.Kamran will open the batting,and Asad coming in at no.3.I expect the rest of the team to be the same.

    So :

    Hafeez
    Kamran (wk)
    Asad
    Younis
    Misbah
    Umar
    Afridi
    Razzaq
    Rehman
    Riaz
    Gul

    Not saying this is the lineup i would want,but that's the one i think will be fielded against Australia.
