      Homies, this is the way we discover talent. When I read the story, my reaction was like WOW. Nice to see PCB management willing to take as many chances as they want by inviting youngsters from all over the country. If some of our Sr. players get injured or unable to perform according to the expectations, these new guns will be use for back-up. Hopefully, those youngsters will make their way in upcoming series in Sri Lanka and England; and home-series against Bangladesh and South Africa.

      Nice goin', Aamir Bhai.

      • SOURCE - Dailytimes

        LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) national selection committee Tuesday invited 76 cricketers to appear in the two-day trials to be held at the Gaddafi Stadium here on Wednesday (today) and Thursday (tomorrow).

        Those impressing the selectors will be retained in a pool of 60 players. The players will be equally divided into five teams for matches to be played from April 18 to 24 in Lahore. The schedule of the matches is being finalized by the PCB’s cricket operations department.

        “The idea for this exercise is to identify the talent and expose them before the newly-appointed selection committee. The process would also help the selectors in picking Pakistan teams for the forthcoming assignments”, a spokesman for the PCB said.

        Pakistan will tour Sri Lanka and England in the next two months and is also scheduled to host Bangladesh and South Africa between August and November.

        Aamir Sohail, selection committee chairman, said: “Some slots are still available for grabs in the Pakistan cricket team. We want to have, at least, two to three back up players for every place so that if a top performer is not available for any reason, the replacement is equally good.”

        Aamir said the five teams for the 15 matches will be announced on Thursday evening. “We have to blend youth with experience and until we are not sure of what is available, we can’t proceed. The boys for the trials have been picked on their domestic performances and on the recommendations of match referees and umpires”.

        Aamir said some of the enterprising and talented players may also be recommended to attend coaching at the National Cricket Academy which is likely to get operative in May.

        Aamir admitted that the names of some current Test players featured in the probables invited for trials, saying: “Players like Muhammad Zahid and Naved Latif were in the team for Sharjah but they didn’t get the opportunity to play. Therefore, we just need to make sure if they are fit and how far they are technically correct. There is no element of disrespect to these players”.
      • Probables (for trials):
      • Openers: Imran Nazir (Lahore), Imran Farhat (Lahore), Babar Naeem (Rawalpindi), Salman Butt (Lahore), Kamran Sajid (Lahore), Ali Naqvi (Lahore), Khalid Latif (Karachi), Adil Nisar (Lahore).
      • Middle-order batsmen: Naved Latif (Sargodha), Qaiser Abbas (Muridke), Bilal Asad (Islamabad), Bazid Khan (Lahore), Farhan Adil (Karachi), Saeed bin Nasir (Karachi), Yasir Hameed (Peshawar), Khaqan Arsal Raja (Lahore), Muhammad Wasim (Islamabad), Hasan Raza (Karachi), Sohail Idrees (Lahore), Sufyan Munir (Lahore), Rizwan Malik (Gujranwala), Usman Tariq (Bahawalpur), Naumanullah (Karachi), Asim Kamal (Karachi), Asim Munir (Gujranwala), Fahad-ul-Haq (Lahore), Salman Ali (Sheikhupura), Salman Qadir (Lahore), Shahid Yousuf (Sialkot), Faisal Khan (Sialkot), Shah Nawaz Malik (Lahore), Asif Hussain (Faisalabad), Maisam Hasnain (Karachi)
      • All-rounders: Yasir Arafat (Islamabad), Junaid Zia (Rawalpindi), Raza Ali Dar (Lahore), Kamran Younis (Lahore), Atiq-ur-Rehman (Gujranwala).
      • Fast bowlers: Muhammad Zahid (Vehari), Jaffar Nazir (Muridke), Najaf Shah (Rawalpindi), Shabbir Ahmad (Khanewal), Abdul Rauf (Okara), Faisal Afridi (Sargodha), Tanveer Ahmad (Karachi), Waqas Ahmad (Lahore), Fazl-i-Akbar (Peshawar), Yasir Ali (Attock), Muhammad Asif (Sheikhupura), Wasim Khan (Lahore), Sardar Nawaz (Sheikhupura), Khurram Irshad (Lahore), Muhammad Irshad (Lahore), Tahir Mughal (Sialkot), Samiullah Khan (Sargodha), Fahad Masood (Lahore), Imran Ali (Lahore), Saad Altaf (Rawalpindi), Nadeem Javed (Sheikhupura), Irfan Fazil (Lahore), Omar Javed (Lahore), Wahab Riaz (Lahore)
      • Spinners: Azhar Ali (Lahore), Muhammad Aqeel (Faisalabad), Mansoor Amjad (Sialkot), Farooq Iqbal (Faisalabad), Abdul Shakoor (Azad Kashmir), Iftikhar Mahmood (Rawalpindi), Muhammad Hussain (Lahore), Yasir Shah (Swabi), Aftab Ahmad (Karachi).
      • Wicketkeepers: Atiq-uz-Zaman (Karachi), Kamran Akmal (Lahore), Zulqarnain Haider (Lahore), Humayun Farhat (Lahore), Amin-ur-Rehman (Karachi).


      P.S, if you homies find stats of these players in first-class cricket, do share with us.

      Thank you.

      I was gonna post this. good going by the PCB.

      though I wonder how much time they'll allocate to each player given that they're watching 76 players in two days. but the above guys I'd like to see involved with the Pak team somehow. Heard good things about them.

      I am very surprised to see the name of Hasan Raza in the probable's list, he did so well against Australia but still he hasn't cemented his place in the team. Why is he being screwed again?

      According to DAWN, there were close to 90 Cricketers, who showed up at trials. Teams will be named on Thursday at the conclusion of the trials.

      Oh btw, two selectors were absent. Aisa Bhi Hota Hai.

      Probably, an hour or so.

      • LAHORE, April 16: As many as 90 cricketers appeared onthe opening day of two-day trials on Wednesday to scan the talent available in the country for the national cricket team.

        Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday named 76 probables but more players turned up at Gaddafi Stadium to exhibit their talent before the national selection committee.

        Chairman of selectors, AamirSohail, with two members of the committee - Shoaib Mohammad and Shafiq Ahmed - watched theprobables. The other two selectors, Farrukh Zaman and Saleem Yousuf, were absent.

        While announcing the list of probables, the PCB's selectors as usual resorted to indulge themselves in their mischievous pastime by ignoring several deserving candidates.

        Among those to be overlooked was Shadab Kabir, who has played in Tests and One-day Internationals.

        The talented left-hander, a consistent run-getter in domestic competitions, was named in the provisional list of 30 World Cup probables in December.


        The selectors will form five teams to play trial matches from Friday to Wednesday at Gaddafi Stadium. The teams will be named at the conclusion of the trials on Thursday.

      I think this thing has been done in past too, not a new thing. But its good to see that other talent is being looked for as replacement/alternative.

      29 players are from Lahore and 11 from Karachi. 36 from other places.
      90% of 76 players is 68.4 players, not 29.

      So what is the point?

      For your information, the coach and the captain of this team are from Karachi.

      I think this is one of the stupidest issues that a Pakistani can concern himself with. I'm a Punjabi (for all the moron who are into regionalism) but I'm in love with Karachi. There's no place I'd rather be other than Karachi.

      point is get your head out of the gutter and see the sunlight.

      agreed. "nationalism" is no more a issue in Pakistani cricket, esp after departure/ban of Saleem Malik.

      This stupid Karachi/Lahore issue Jupiter, seems like you have been with Sarfraz NAwaz lately

      Anyways Moins appointment is really intersting. First of all, Moin was very effective as an opener in recently concluded domestic oneday competition, and maybe Team management thinks that trying him as an opener in oneday internationals is a good idea. I think that could be a great idea, as Hafeez and Taufiq both are relatively grafters and we need a dasher in initial overs agaisnt good sides chasing big totals. Point to be noted here that Moin is not chosen as wicket-keeper. He is chosen as a batsman/captain.
      The will of Allah will not take you where the Grace of Allah will not protect you.

      No thanks Saby baji, Rashid Latif has proved to be a worty captain, we don't need no team rifter/Wasim butt kisser Moin back, he is fine where he is.
      Rashid Latif all the way!!

      btw- main reason more punjabis play cricket than sindhis is because they are better cricketers, they have better physiques.
