    Don’t have words to show my disgust. But, again in a country like ours how can you hope for a fair selection of cricket team. The two biggest shockers are Mohammad Hafeez & Kamran Akmal. As for Mohammad Hafeez, alas….you can just bang your head on the walls and go crazy asking questions that what he has done to deserve to be in the team ????? All hopes are gone. Now the whole nation should hold special prayers when they go for Umrah and Hajj to get rid of M. Hafeez. Ahmad Shahzad, Umar Akmal, Rahat Ali and Sohail Tanveer have all got more than enough chances and their performances does not merit selection. Unlike most of them, atleast everyone know Shan Masood’s connection, that how he got into the team. He has had his chances and is just not good enough. Saad Ali, and Rumman Raees are not upto the mark and they are just a waste of space.

    After his earlier success, Kamran Akmal’s game had come spiraling down to the bottom. He has become the player responsible for most losses to his team single handedly in the entire history of cricket. From a champion wicket keeper batsman he went down to dropping the most simplest of the catches, and that is in bulk. His once prolific batting was reduced to nothing. That kind of performance is very questionable. Who can forget the Sidney test of 2010 when, like dropping tons of straight forward catches wasn’t enough, Kamran Akmal had just stood by the wickets with the ball in hands and did not run out Michael Hussey, allowing him completing the run and consequently win the match. If there is one cricketer in the history of cricket with the biggest question mark on his integrity, then it is Kamran Akmal. In 2010 spot fixing scandal his name was also heard being mentioned but somehow he got away for not having enough evidence against him (or maybe his supporters in high places have managed to save his skin). Kamran Akmal should not be even anywhere close to the Pakistan team.
    Everybody should remember the prolific stylish left handed batsman Asim Kamal whose carrier has been destroyed by Inzamam-ul-haq when he was captain. Now the unseen forces and Misbah-ul-haq has destroyed the carrier of another left handed batsman who has the best 1st class record and a very successful debut to test cricket and a very good ODI record, Fawwad Alam. Exclusion of Fawwad Alam is as mysterious as Mohammad Hafeez’s inclusion. Another mystery is the exclusion of fast bowler Sadaf Hussain, holder of the best national 1st class bowling record. Words are around that some unseen hand in PCB is keeping him away on the basis of personal dislike.
    No bright prospects in fast bowling department. Neither anyone is worrying about doing something about it. Everybody seems to be content on applying the defensive approach of MIsbah-ul-haq and depending on spinners.
