Hafeez's captaincy debut begins shortly. Will be interesting to see some new faces representing Pakistan. Could any of them become legends?
he can hit a bit in T20, but he's not really known for his batting prowess in all formats. In fact until that hundred in faysal bank he was considered pretty poor.I've never seen shakeel, does anyone know if he can bat?
Think the thinking was more to find our second pacer for the T20 world cup. Hafeez did experiment with them in the practice games, looks like he'll experiment with them in the real thing too.Should have picked Hammad over tanvir, Pakistan should have strength their batting. 4 full time bowlers+hafeez, Malik and hammad should have been enough
khalid latif and sohail tanvir ... bad choices
hammad and haris sohail should have been selected in place of them
bad bad bad
and malik shoud be replaced with raza hasan.... because batting till hammad as 7th batsman is enough for t20...with gul and sami is there to swing at the end

Not sure if he's a complete batsman, but he can give it a good whack. And his batting in T20 has improved in recent tournaments. So might do well. But he's usually used as a pinch hitter at the top, not sure how he'll play lower down.
In t20s he is an automatic selection, not in any other format though.
He can ball with variations and can hit the ball long esp. on the leg side.
I don't mind him playing in t20
