He has been giving more attention to tennis than to cricket for the last two years. He should now try his luck in tennis. He can’t do anything big in cricket now. He should start taking tennis lessons from his wife and become a professional tennis player.
He is finished as a bowler. Look at his bowling figures from the Friday match. He could not get a wicket against the minnows Afghanistan. What will he do against England?
As a batsman, I repeat, he has been failing of late. We played against weak teams in the last few months. And he failed against them. What will he do against England?
And we don’t need him. We already have an off spin all rounder in Mohammad Hafeez who has been consistent with both bat and ball. Our middle order is full with Misbah, Younis, Asad and Umar. The lower middle order has Shahid Afridi and Hammad Azam. Where will he fit? He can only sit out.
It is injustice with the fellow to separate him from his wife when he cannot make the final cut. If he is not to play, let him remain with his wife. He will be of better use with his wife.
