    Azhar should replace Waqar

    I don't think it is healthy to have Wasim and Waqar sharing the new ball. On Sunday they wasted it on a helpful track whereas Shoaib immediately came on and shook the Aussies. Both Wasim and Waqar have lost a yard of pace and we can only afford to have one of them in the side. Wasim is the better bowler and he can bat as well. Waqar has done ok in Australia but he was never a great one day bowler.

    Azhar is in my opinion a more dangerous bowler now (he had a good world cup) and he is also a good batsman. We need Shoaib opening the bowling as he always got us early wickts in the world cup.

    I would prefer for Azhar to play rather than Waqar as he hasn't lost his bowling touch like Waqar. Waqar still gets many useful wickets but he isn't good enough for Azhar.
    As you said he is a dagerous bowler!

      Oh yes! I absolutely agree with you. Azhar Mahmood is not only a reliable Bowler but also a strong Batsman.We can't rely on Waqar everytime. I also think that Ijaz shall be excluded from the team now.Ijaz hasn't been performing well since early last year.When ever the PCB decides to kick him, he scores a century and thats so funny . But something needs to be done here..

        Too right. Also, Wasti is not a back foot player and was always going to struggle in Australia. Mohammed Wasim is the player to open alongside Saeed. Afridi would be next choice but his style is more suited to the sub-continent.

        For any player to succeed in Aus they have to be able to play off the back foot. Aamir Sohail would have been a good choice but he is too disruptive.

          Ijaz needs to be dropped along with Inzamam.
          These guys are very inconsistent. They get one or two decent scores in every 20 games and Wasim keeps playing them because they`re his buddies. Mohd Wasim is a far better player in terms on technique, age, and ability. However, Akram has been messing around with him since day one. Sending him as an opener or one down..when he is known to be an excellent Number 4 player. Also, Wasti...plain and simple..sucks. He has no feet movement..he moves around in the crease as if he cannot read the movement of the ball at all. If you look at his dismissals in all the games he`s played..99% of the time he's been out caught behind by the keeper. The guy is supposed to have a good technique..but quite frankly...Saqlain can probably play better than him. So, Wasti should be history along with Ijaz and Haq. Aamir Sohail needs to be brought back. The Pakistan team does not belong to Wasim or Aamir for that matter...they need to forget about their differences and play for the country. Also..Afridi needs to be in the team. He just failed in one game and Wasim dropped him whereas his buddies Ijaz and Inzamam are in the team despite having gotten low scores for ages. Sohail should open with Saeed and Afridi can come in at number 3 followed by Mohd Wasim, Youhana, Mahmood, Razzaq, Moin, etc. Pakistan's best batsmen is Saeed Anwar
          however he has not been getting the runs he usually does and this has shown what a weak batting side we have when Saeed is not
          getting runs. I think with Aamir back to open with him...Saeed would have less preassure on him and he would be back to his best.

            Yes, Azhar should replace Waqar in the *team as a whole*. But considering the SCG still to come, as well as aus wickets genrally, I think Waqar should still be chosen (as long as he's bowling well) ahead of Azhar for the remainder of the C&U series. After the Aus tour, it should be back to Azhar.

              I believe Waqar, who was second highest scorer today can stay in the team as specialist batsman.

                I really think Waseem should be replaced as the Captain. This dude hasn;t learned from the June fiasco and can't seem to get his batsmen to act sensibly in testing situations. The mantra for the top order paki batting has been to be gung-ho right from the beginning. This has failed the team miserably!!
