    Looking forward: Pakistan's next T20I squad

    Today, probably isn't the best day but I think now time has come to take tough calls. If this is not the time, then I doubt when should we discuss future. PAK's next T20 series is against us, at home (UAE), and we'll be without Shakib, probably couple others as well and BCB will try few new faces (pacers) for sure, considering the WC 2020 qualifiers in AUS and we can't go there with a plan to bowl 14 overs spin. Trying out 3.5 darters (2 of them SLAO, we have in dozens there) will be quite effective against this PAK batting talent, but for the bigger perspectives, it's a lose-lose call, BCB won't take that for sure.

    PAK, simply can't afford to lose that series, because it'll have a long term negative impact - PCB & PCT will lose major chunk of sponsors, if so. I was thinking a T20 squad for next series, majority of whom should make the WC squad in 8 months time. I have watched some parts of National T20, and most of PAK's recent heroics against SRL reserves and against Aussies as well. I don't think, the way Misbah and his selectors are thinking is going to work and PAK will struggle to win the series even against a depleted BD side, particularly in Asia ...... WC 2020 SF in AUS is a long, long .... long shot.

    For AUS WC, PAK must play 3 pacers and at least one genuine spinner, preferably a leggi, and another spinner + 5 batsmen and a WK that can bat. Excluding unpopular choices like Irfan & Kamran, this is probably what we can think of

    Openers: Babar will open, so we need couple of openers to partner him, preferably lefti. My choice are Umer Amin as 1st choice opener and other one between Imam & Ahsan Ali - I go for Ahsan. I have backed Fakher long enough, but he has stressed the elasticity beyond breaking point.

    Middle order: The bitter truth is that PAK doesn't have a single middle order to dominate game from 3-4-5. Haris isn'r fit enough physically and skill wise to bat at 4, rest are even worse and I don't want to call back Hafeez, Malik - that'll be ultimate surrender to own bankruptcy. My 4 middle orders are Iftekhar, Kushdil, Talat and Umar Akmal. I know, the last guy isn't popular enough, but he is still 29, still can make a turn around. He was poor against SRL, but after watching Haris show in AUS, can't help much. His another purpose is 2nd WK.

    All-rounder: I'll pick all-rounders on their ability to bowl 4 overs, no half measures will work. PAK can't operate with compromised 40% overs with ball. I think, if he is fit enough, Imad should be in plan till 2021 WC, his back up should be Gohar. I'll pick 1 pace bowling all-rounders - Amad Butt; options are limited and guy is performing.

    WK: It might happen that Umar Akmal keeps wicket, but still they'll need a regular keeper in squad - I'll take Bismillah.

    Spinner: Since Imad/Gohar is there, and Iftekhar can bowl Off-spin, this spot must go to a leggi. Not sure whom to pick beyond Shadab and Shadab might return back for WC, but for BD Series, I'll definitely pick a new leggi - Zahid Mehmood, his T20 stats are excellent.

    Pacer: Amir makes it easily, I'll keep Shaheen as well - which means the other 2 has to be right armers. I'll pick Sameen Gul and one of Naseem or Hasnain (Probably Naseem).

    So the squad:

    1. *Babar
    2. Amin
    3. Bismillah+
    4. Umar Akmal
    5. Kushdil/Talat
    6. Iftekhar
    7. Imad
    8. Amad
    9. Amir
    10. Zahid
    11. Shaheen/Naseem/Sameen
    ----------------------------------
    15. Ahsan
    16. Gohar

    T-20 is Mickey Mouse Cricket, yes losing sucks and does not feel good but Pakistan needs to use the format especially the billateral T-20 games to build up its bench strength like the rest of the world does.

    ODI and Test matches are the real deal

    Agree about Amin and Ahsan.

    None of the WK in Pakistan look fit for international cricket. Including Bismillah. I do not think he should be in the team let alone batting at #3.

    I have no idea about Umar Akmal.

    Iftikhar has earned a promotion to #4/5 in T20Is. #6/7 position is more for players who can score 35/40 at 200 SR. Iftikhar showed in Australia that he can score 50+ scores.

    Agree about Khushdil and Talat.

    I'm not sure about Imad. He lacks fitness and his bowling is part-time level in Australia. His batting alone is not good enough to be in the team.

    Amad Butt looks a good prospect but he should play Test cricket first. I'll pick Aamer Yamin for a fast bowling all-rounder.

    Zafar Gohar should also be tried in Test matches first. I don't want him to turn into a darter. Anyways, spinner is not so important right now.

    For pacers, I agree about Amir and Shaheen, but Sameen Gul is not a T20 bowler. His economy rate is one of the highest in PSL history. Naseem is another guy who I don't want to be ruined in T20s. I would go with two of Shinwari, Rauf and Hasnain. Haris Rauf is a complete bowler who's debut is way overdue. Apparently he isn't well-mannered enough for Misbah. Hasnain might struggle against AUS/ENG/SA, but he is in the team as the minnow-basher. And he will learn with international experience. Shinwari gives his 100% and can swing the new ball at pace. Plus, he has BBL experience.

    So I'd just change your squad slightly and make it this:

    Babar*
    Bismillah+
    Amin
    Akmal
    Iftikhar
    Khushdil
    Imad
    Leggie
    Amir
    Shaheen
    Rauf
    ------------------
    Talat
    Shinwari
    Ahsan

    I saw the name Umar Akmal....and I couldn't believe some fans can be this delusional. Fact is we will struggle for the next 10 years unless we produce good cricketers are under 16 under 19 level.

    Those countries who prepare players at the younger age will succeed in coming years. We have a machine called PSL where we see flashy player or a mediocre spinner or a 150kph bowlers and we say there... we got the player. It doesn't work that way.

    Fact is for the last 15-20 years we didn't invest in our grassroot level cricket, We didn't identify players at 14/15/16 yrs of age. We only saw Babar who is a natural talent (just like any our past stars). Unless we pick players and groom them its going to be tough ask.

    These days teams are working with analysts to figure out new shots, new deliveries, new ways to catch the ball and Pakistan on the other hand not able to play pacers as well as not able to pick a wrong one. Seriously??? How can we make the T20/ODI or test team when our players not able to play basic cricket.. I am sorry but Our team will disapoint us over an over again unless we invest now then after 10 years those players will be ready and win you matches... great example is Babar, but one person won't be able to win you matches.

    What's everyone's obsession with Amin? He's too mentally fragile. I would've been down to try him as opener in ODIs but not T20Is with the WC nearing.

    I'd go:

    Babar*
    Imam (Sharjeel/Ahsan come in for WT20 based on PSL show)
    Talat
    Rizwan (he was bound to fail against AUS in AUS - give him another chance)
    Iftikhar
    Khushdil
    Imad
    Shadab/Zafar
    Amir
    Shaheen
    Rauf

    Bench:

    Zafar/Shadab, Saif, Yamin, Hasnain

    I am ok with this current team but ideally I think we need at least fourchanges.

    Sarfaraz for Rizwan
    Amad Butt for Irfan
    Yamin for Riaz
    Zafar for Qadir

    Sarfaraz needs to be back as Captain. Make Babar vice Captain in all formats and let him develop his game. Sarfaraz as captain was working.

    Ideally I would like someone like Malik too. I know he is done in ODI, but in T20 he is still very good.
    Hasnain should be no where close to the team anymore. His time is up. Imam and Haris are not T20 material and Rizwan isn't either. If Sharjeel is fit, bring him in.

    I'm writing this post as its past high time that Pakistan takes a strong and good call with respect to its T20 squad as the next big cricket tournament is T20 WC and everyone has already started giving shape to its WC squad unlike Pakistan. I would like to see the following squad given consistent chances till world cup.

    1. Babar
    2. Amin (had a very good T20 tournament, lefty, can play accumulator too and compliment Babar well).
    3. Abid Ali (I know he is unfit and not popular, but the guy has very strong backfoot game which will be crucial in WC).
    4. Iftikhar (cemented his place after this series)
    5. Umar Akmal (has too keep wickets, if not doesn't play)
    6. Asif Ali (no matter how much I dislike him for his brainless batting, he is the cleanest striker in our domestic circuit at the moment, someone needs to talk sense to him).
    7. Imad Wasim
    8. Shadab Khan
    9. Amad Butt
    10. Mohammad Aamir
    11. Shaheen Shah

    Reserves:
    1. Rizwan (need a specialist keeper in squad)
    2. Faheem Ashraf (Again another not so popular choice but he was spearheading our pace department when Pakistan was at top of the rankings).
    3. Fakhar (keep with squad, match practice means nothing to him so can be called up and can fire, he is unpredictable)
    4. Musa (backup pacer, can replace Shadab depending on wickets)

    The above squad is the strongest that I could possibly muster for T20. Shame that our batting reserves are really running dry at the moment. I know its difficult to expect but I need this new domestic system to start churning out good players at earliest, its really the need of the hour at the moment.

    For the Bangladesh series (hopefully it is in Pakistan and not UAE), we need a lot of changes. This would be my squad

    1) Babar Azam (C)
    2) Aamer Yamin - replace him for Asif. I feel Yamin can be groomed as a proper finisher, rather than just a bowler capable of a few lusty blows
    3) Amad Butt - Musa isn't ready for internationals and Amad has been very consistent for a while - play him as a bowler
    4) Ahsan Ali - don't want to see Fakhar
    5) Awais Zia - another opening option
    6) Iftikhar Ahmed
    7) Imad Wasim
    8) Khushdil Shah - deserves a chance
    9) Mohammad Amir
    10) Mohammad Hasnain
    11) Mohammad Rizwan (WK) - may as well stick with him
    12) Shadab Khan - bowled good in the one game he bowled in
    13) Shaheen Afridi - should walk straight back in
    14) Umar Amin - he didn't do too badly in his last Pakistan game and has done well in Nat T20 - Haris had an awful Nat T20 cup and Aus Series
    15) Wahab Riaz - bowled poorly in the 2nd T20I but was good in the SL series + his batting is a bonus. He can be good for us in the WT20
    16) Zahid Mahmood - he was better than Usman Qadir in Nat T20 cup

    As with every future hypothetical squad I post, once again it's worth noting that 1-2 months is a long time so maybe one or two players would come into reckoning.

    1) Babar Azam (C)
    2) Awais Zia - can be interchanged with Ahsan, not actually sure how many T20s there will be
    3) Umar Amin - he was quite versatile position wise
    4) Mohammad Rizwan (WK)
    5) Iftikhar Ahmed
    6) Aamer Yamin - he can be useful at 6
    7) Imad Wasim
    8) Amad Butt
    9) Mohammad Amir
    10) Shaheen Afridi
    11) Zahid Mahmood - give him a go, we need to experiment ahead of the World T20

    As much as it pains me to say this, Umar Akmal should probably be back in the team. Reason? Rizwan and Sarfraz are liabilities in T20 cricket, Rohail Nazir is too young and is yet to make his mark, Bismillah Khan doesn't impress, and Kamran Akmal is too old. Who's the only viable wicketkeeper batsman left? Umar Akmal. He's not going to come in and play 10 (12) type innings, he will either go for 1 (2) or he'll get you a useful quickfire 30+ score, and he is fully capable of playing pace and bounce in Australia.

    Also need to get rid of all these players who are incapable of playing bounce, Haris, Asif, and Rizwan simply do not belong at this level. We absolutely must fast track Sharjeel Khan back into the team. He's been out for over 2 years, and need him to gain some form back as soon as possible, he can easily still serve Pakistan for another 5 years if he can bring his game back to 2017 levels. He is a must for the World T20 because he's aggressive and is brilliant on the pull and cut, perfect foil for Babar.

    Hussain Talat also makes the team, not because he's outstanding, but because he's superior to Haris Sohail in this form of the game. Amir Yamin and Amad Butt slot into the lower middle order because they're both very handy lower order bats, while Amad is a decent right arm pacer. I'd also like to see Umer Khan in as a specialist spinner, he looks tailor made for this format and was very impressive for Karachi Kings. I like Shadab Khan, but don't see a spot for him in the WT20 starting XI on current form, while Imad Wasim doesn't bring any value in Australian conditions.

    Sharjeel Khan
    Babar Azam*
    Hussain Talat
    Umar Akmal+
    Iftikhar Ahmed
    Amir Yamin
    Amad Butt
    Umer Khan
    Mohammad Amir
    Shaheen Shah Afridi
    Nasim Shah

    Bench - Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Sameen Gul, Rumman Raees, Imam ul Haq, Khushdil Shah.

    I'd go:

    Babar*
    Imam (Sharjeel/Ahsan come in for WT20 based on PSL show)
    Talat
    Umar Amin is a very good back-foot player which is needed in Australia.

    He showed this not only in PSL'19, but also the recently concluded National T20 Cup where he was the 2nd leading run scorer and played a match-winning innings in the final.

    https://youtu.be/uWbU8j_YBHs

    https://youtu.be/xwrN6Xe1FPU

    Idk what you mean by mentally fragile.

    He was also unfairly dropped from the T20I team and deserves selection on merit.

    Imam ul-Haq is not a T20I player yet. His scoring against the short stuff is very poor. Recently Jofra Archer and Lockie Ferguson have humiliated him, but today it was Kane Richardson of all people.

    Talat is similar to Imam that he does not have enough strokes vs pace to bat in the top order.

    Agree about Ahsan and Sharjeel, both are good back-foot players and should get opportunities in domestic cricket.

    Rizwan Hussain is another guy who pulls well and can loft it vs pace. A young Sharjeel.

    You need guys who can pull and cut well because WI knocked out PAK of this WC this way and it was exposed again in this series. Fakhar, Imam and Haris were all found out.

    I definitely see what you mean. But most aggressive openers or stroke players should be able to score boundaries with only 2 fielders at the fence. And if Babar comes down at 3 it gives us more choices elsewhere. As in it’s relatively easier right now for Pakistan to find an opener than a middle order batsman. If Babar goes one down, we can push the rest of the order down by one.

    We have to be honest with ourselves - Kamran is still by far our best aggressive option at the top in T20 cricket. Yes he is old, but he continuously outperforms his competition.

    Misbah needs to make a deal with him. He gets picked for the two World T20s in the next two years and then announces his retirement from international cricket and stops clamoring for a return.

    Rizwan is a good player and a clear improvement on Sarfraz, but it is not possible to accommodate him in the T20 lineup.

    Amin is a fine touch player but he wonít add anything to this lineup that it currently lacks.

    Furthermore, Kamranís keeping has rarely cost Pakistan in T20s. He has the fitness and the concentration to not make glaring errors over 20 overs on flat pitches.

    Him firing in the first 4-5 overs can be the difference between a 150 and a 180 total.

    I think they should try Haider Ali and Umair Yousuf in T20s. Both are aggressive and can play pace bowling really well.

    Umar Akmal should be trained as a keeper and tell him not to play any aerial shots till he reach a 30 score, clear cut instructions.

    Fact is for the last 15-20 years we didn't invest in our grassroot level cricket, We didn't identify players at 14/15/16 yrs of age. We only saw Babar who is a natural talent (just like any our past stars). Unless we pick players and groom them its going to be tough ask.

    These days teams are working with analysts to figure out new shots, new deliveries, new ways to catch the ball and Pakistan on the other hand not able to play pacers as well as not able to pick a wrong one. Seriously??? How can we make the T20/ODI or test team when our players not able to play basic cricket.. I am sorry but Our team will disapoint us over an over again unless we invest now then after 10 years those players will be ready and win you matches... great example is Babar, but one person won't be able to win you matches.
    Agree with you, Some People Suggesting Name Of Umar Amin, Talat And Ahsan Ali, I Think They Don't Now How To Check Players Record On Internet,

    Besides recycling of poor players in t20 , we need to select players on criteria of average and strike rate.

    Sharjeel Khan
    Babar Azam C
    Rizwan Hussain
    Iftikhar Ahmed
    Kamran Akmal WK
    Umar Akmal / Shoiab Malik
    Amir Yamin
    Zafar Goher
    Shaheen Afridi
    Hassan Ali / Haris Rauf
    Junaid Khan / M Amir

    This Squad Is Based On Criteria Not On Fluke Inning In A Life Time

    Why not Sharjeel over Kami?
