Former Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur believes that three bowlers could “have made a difference” if they were picked for the recently concluded Test series against Australia.

Arthur feels that Pakistan should have selected Rahat Ali for his experience and the fact that he has toured Australia before.

The other two bowlers Arthur wanted in the team were Faheem Ashraf, who he thinks bring “balance”, and Usman Khan Shinwari, who he described as a “wildcard”.

“The three I can think of who might have made a difference: Rahat Ali has some experience and toured Australia, not sure about his form. Then Faheem Ashraf, I’ve been an advocate of the balance he brings to the team and then a wildcard in Usman Khan Shinwari,” Arthur was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Pakistan lost the Test series against Australia 2-0, set an embarrassing world record and slipped down to eighth on the Test rankings.

  1. Actually the Pakistan team selection does not deserve for win, however selector should go to hell. Can we imagine, this is the best team. Azhar ali should go for domestic, and also the major question is that , can he deserve for test captain and what is the average of him after younus khan.

  2. PCB has decided to whole management as their rubbish think, we have a lot of player in quene such as like fawad alam, kamran akmal, and other in bowling side usman, wahab, but they have made as a team at zero, even we had in first rank in t20 but now you can see, ahsan mani doesn’t deserve for chairman PCB.

    • Wahab Riaz has retired from Tests is seems. But I think you’re right that Fawad and Kamran are both doing well and deserve chances in Test cricket. Rahat Ali and Usman Shinwari should be given a chance also.
