So Imad Wasim has also been dropped...  Replaced by Nawaz.  Haider Ali & Chachu Ifti in Middle order. 

Iftikhar is solely picked coz he bats well against pace. Heard misbah he suggested this move to them last yr when t20 Wc was going on in UAE that pick someone like Asif ali in subcontinent n Ahmed overseas . They did exactly that.........they are picking players on conditions . He also bowls Off spin which is a plus sinze nawaz, khusdil are SLA and Shadab leggie

We are backing iyer before Australia :giggle:

Shaheen, Naseem and Rauf is a wicket taking attack.

can be expensive on days but will get wickets if the ball moves a little.

 

Happy for Naseem, he was the most impressive pacer in the last PSL.

 

Asian spinners will trouble that middle order but guys like Iftikhar, Asif and khushdil can really get stuck in against pacers.

 

fakhar has a massive role in that lineup against leg spin and left arm spin.

Nawaz gives better returns with bat and his bowling is also good 

Seeing how Akeal is going against us we are in desperate need of a leftie to tackle Shadab & Nawaz.  Pant may become more crucial. 

SKY vs Shadab & Rauf would be  a favorable match up for us.

Predicted XI vs India 

 

 

Babar

Rizwan

Fakhar

Haider

Chachu Ifti

Asif Ali

Shadab

Nawaz

Naseem

Rauf

Shaheen 

 

Strong squad....  But I think India should target Naseem & the spinner...  Once we survive new ball burst of Shaheen...  This attack can be taken to cleaners..  Either way a strong Pakistani squad for UAE conditions.

Very strong squad indeed. With Babar Azam, they also have a calm and composed leader and not obnoxious ones of the past like Afridi, Sarfraz etc.

 

India should play this line up against them (subject to fitness):

 

Rohit

SKY

Kohli

KL

Pant

Pandya

Bhuvi

Bishnoi/Chahar

Chahal

Bumrah

Harshal/Arshdeep

Pant at 4 to take on Shadab/Nawaz.  Rahul vs wrist spin is a bad idea...  S/R wise.  Bat him like he does at 5 in ODIs.

Naseem has more experience with the new ball so will definitely start, dahani will get his chance later in the tournament too.

Both are unproven at the death but Naseem will get first dibs because of his performances in white ball tournaments.

That pakistani middle order is a real worry against Rashid, Chahal and Hasaranga.

esp Rashid and the srilankan spinners.

chahal will trouble those guys but Fakhar might fancy that matchup , Rashid and Hasaranga will feast.

asif ali isnt even in squad and surely they wont drop a 2nd leftie, its great if teams have mix right-left

Asif Ali is in the squad...  I forgot to add his name. He literally carried them in WT20..  Ifti & Khushdil won't play together
