From my limited knowledge of Pakistan cricket I believe there is enough talent but the selectors just picked the wrong squad. Bowlers selected were satisfactory and absent of Umar Gul was disappointing but young and inexperienced bowlers exceeded my expectations. Pakistan can move forward and improve their team provided they select following in the ODI squad: 1. Nasir Jamshed, 2. Ahmed Shehzad, 3. Azhar Ali (vice captain), 4. Umar Akmal, 5. Misbah Ul Haq, 6. Hammad Azam, 7. Kamran Akmal, 8. Wahab Riaz, 9. Umar Gul, 10. Saeed Ajmal, 11. Mohammed Irfan, 12. Junaid Khan. I am sure there are other youngsters who can be added to these twelve such as possibly Asad Shafiq and if they want to persist with Hafeez he should bat number 6 or 7 as he is incapable of batting against good quality new ball bowlers. The top order has to be technically excellent as now there are two new balls.

Excellent Huddle! Both classy and Practical cricketers. Good job Raunak! I really wish Rahul comes up to be on the Selection committee. He has time and again proved that he is an excellent ambassador to the game! Good job Cricinfo, i think this huddle concept is really awesome! gives a fresh perspective when compared to what the commentators speak.

Nice job! Perhaps the best huddle thus far... both from a connection/audio quality angle and from a content perspective (Rahul & Russel - nuf said). ABOVE ALL... excellent hosting by Raunak... makes me wonder why we have to suffer ramblers so often? Socialism?!
