    Sorry, but what an absolute coward and chicken Ahmed is. He wanted to go off because the wicket is dangerous? Someone show him the India SA series final test. Very nice message he gave as leader to his batsmen and team mates. No wonder he dropped such a dolly! The guy needs to be sacked. I loathe Kohli the captain but I know he will not ever admit defeat or want to take his boys off the field. Disgrace to Pakistan!!

    You're whole post asks one question. Is he fit?
    Answer: Of course he is!

    Firstly, in Test cricket, you don't play on potential, you play on talent. It should be simply if the player is good enough or not presently. Unless you have a freak like Wasim Akram or something. And it is an absolutely ridiculous notion to ask for guarantees from a player prospectively. How the heck is he supposed to prove himself before the fact? If they give him a shot, and extended run, then he can either prove himself or fail. How is he supposed to do it beforehand. Perhaps by performing in domestic cricket, yes? Well, he's been doing that forever.

    I agree, Sarfaraz is not a great leader from the outside. But I think you're a bit harsh on Kohli, no?

    Harsh on Kohli? Apart from his batting and never die attitude he's a sham. I think even Sarfaraz is better than him. 27 years of watching cricket now and he's the worst captain I've seen.

    Asad Shafiq finally coming good. Proper test match player and too good of a player to fail for a longer time in test matches.

    Another useless innings, so his BFF Sarfraz will keep him in the team for another year

    Faf played one of his typical gritty knocks. I think that's the difference between the two sides. But, if you ask me, Shan Masood has been the best batsman of this series. Pure class!

    The batsman who wasn't going to play a single match if Haris was fit. And is your best batsman in this series.

    Sarfaraz: ""Our fast-bowlers haven't bowled up to the mark in this Test. Our bowlers bowled at an average pace of 130kmph while they, on the other hand, were bowling at 145kmph. If you lack pace here, you don't get wickets... I don't know what is going on. I don't know what held them back on this Cape Town wicket."

    Ok, they were bowling the same pace before, and have been bowling the same pace the whole year. A year, where they have literally been the second best attack in Test cricket statistically. But you know what for sure doesn't get you wickets, it's dropping easy catches. And not learning from your mistakes, standing the same distance back at slips and grassing another one after just having done that in the first game. It's absolutely ridiculous this from a so called captain of a team whose batting has looked like club cricketers aside from Shan Masood. Display some leadership for god's sake and focus on your true weaknesses. This is unbelievable tone deafness.
