The problem is that board has the policy of favoritism.At present thy have talent such as fawad alam, hasan raza and many more who have performed extremely well in domestic circuit but they are never selected.
Fawad Alam and Shahzab Hasan (made hundred against somerset) would make a great opening pair.
Fawad Alam has opened in test and made 160+ on debut.So why not make him open in ODI's
HEY SRI LANKANS YOU WATCHING THE SLAUGHTERING??? hahaha?
i am with you, i knew it Australia will crash srilanka and they are doin that, they will at least make 300 and today overs are less than 50 overs and to chase that big target in less than 50 overs is impossible for srilanka,
Here the news u will hear:
Australia won the world cup 2007 and made a hat-trick,
srilanka white-washed against Australia in final and couldn't make more than 100 runs.
Hayden failed to break Sachin record of scoring highest runs in world cup.
Man of the Match Adam Gilchrist for his wonderful inning of 149.
Man of the Series Glen Mcgrath, bowled very good in world cup and deserve that award.
take your pick ............................................................and explain why ?
1) Saeed Anwar Vs Matthew Hayden as a batsman.
Matches: Anwar - 55; Hayden - 102 (presently playing 103rd)
Runs per Match: Anwar - 73.67; Hayden - 83.87
Runs per Innings: Anwar - 45.53; Hayden - 50.92
Percent share of runs in series played: Anwar - 6.99; Hayden - 7.53
My rating: Anwar - 80.75 marks; Hayden - 80.5 marks.
Both are practically at the same level. But then, Hayden played more matches. Hence, I would think that Hayden is better than Anwar.
2) Stuart Broad Vs Morne Morkel as a bowler
Matches: Broad - 10; Morkel - 14 (presently playing the 15th)
Balls per Match: Broad - 217; Morkel - 172
Balls per Wicket: Broad - 83; Morkel - 52
Runs per Wicket: Broad - 45.23; Morkel - 32.50
Percent share of wicket in series played: Broad - 5.74; Morkel - 9.43
Wickets per match: Broad - 2.60; Morkel - 3.29
My rating: Broad - 50.82 marks; Morkel - 63.5 marks.
Morne Morkel is better bowler than Stuart Broad.
3) Paul Collingwood Vs Abraham de Villiers as a fielder
Matches: Collingwood - 41; de Villiers - 48
Catches per Match: Collingwood - 1.29; de Villiers - 1.42
percent share of catches in series played: Collingwood - 5.5; de Villiers - 6.83
My rating: Collingwood - 30.62 marks; de Villiers - 30.69 marks.
Both are exactly at the same level. But de Villiers played more matches and hence should be considered a better fielder.
4) Sachin Tendulkar Vs Viv Richards as a batsman
Matches: Tendulkar - 156; Richards - 121
Runs per Match: Tendulkar - 79.67; Richards - 70.58
Runs per Innings: Tendulkar - 54.3; Richards - 50.2
Percent share of runs in series played: Tendulkar - 7.65; Richards - 7.55
My rating: Tendulkar - 84.98 marks; Richards - 85.78 marks.
Vivian Richards is slightly better than Sachin. But then, Sachin played more matches. Hence I feel Sachin is better than Richards.

damien martyn,andrew symonds,
and india has and had

You are absoltely right.
Saeed Anwar caught Ganguly b. Tendulkar 194 (146 balls)
22 fours and 5 sixes.
At Chennai (Independence Cup tournament in 1997).
When he got out there were still 3 overs left. He could have scored a double hundred. Such was his domination that the second highest scorer made 39.
Pakistan won the match by 35 runs.
why did pakistan drop Yasir Hameed from its world cup squad?
May be he was not performing good. But i think he was a good choice. And may be u r right that he can be a good opener.
Actually Pakistani management has chosen a poor team. The combination is very bad. Injured and out of form players are included in team. They not even included Sami. I think Wolmer is not serious with this team any more. He wants to become coach of England team and he is trying to become England coach after World cup. You can expect his sympathy with England team. If Pakistan had to play against England in World Cup. He didn't even suceeded to bring good openers for Pakistani's.
We can only pray for Pakistani's to win World cup. And Inshallah they will.
1 - Brilliant fielder (compared to Jonty Rhodes) and high average middle order batsman
2 - hold Odi record for highest score (194) Also, he scored 2 or more successive hundreds on four separate occasions. ALso, 20 hundreds in Odis.
3 - Excellent captain; Most capped ODI Captain (218 matches)
4 - played in the 1996 World Cup Final against Australia, where he took 3 wickets for 42 runs (including Mark Taylor and Ricky Ponting), and then got 107 not out with the bat to help Sri Lanka beat Australia by 7 wickets, thereby clinching the World Cup.
Do you think that standard of cricket in Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have improved for last couple of years?
I absolutely agree that the standard of cricket has improved for Bangladesh. They'd introduced some excellent cricketers like Tamim Iqbal and Shakib-Al-Hasan, so I feel that have a lot in store for the future.
BUT I think that Zimbabwe hasn't improved but gotten worse. They didn't have proper replacements for legendary cricketers like Andy Flower, Grant Flower, Heath Streak, and I don't think they'll ever find replacements for them.
Maybe Coventry has some potential, but at the same time, I doubt he can play the same way the Flower brothers played against those big teams like India and Australia.
Why has there never been scored a double century in One day cricket?
Well, test cricket goes on for 5 days....90 overs per day...if you do the maths, you can see how cricketers manage to score double or triple centuries with ease in these cases. On the other hand, with just 50 overs, it makes it harder to get a double century.
I think someone will eventually break Anwar's record since cricket is definitely more a batsman's game. I remember Steve Waugh thought Gilly would be the first cricketer to score a double hundred and being an opening batsman, he does stand a chance. I know I"d love to see him do that, but somehow, I doubt he will because as exciting as he is...he falters before reaching that milestone. If I had to say from the present day cricketers, I'd say Gilly...but if not, I think it will be way into the future of the game that someone will score a double hundred.
Just so you know though, a double hundred has been scored in women's ODI cricket by Belinda Clark...214 n.o.
Yeah I remember that 194 knock very well....it was against India and I was so upset that day..almost started hating him :)
Long time though....when you be nostalgic, Saeed Anwar was one of the highest run-scorers in ODI cricket in his times...By the way, where is he now? Don't hear much of him anymore.
My favourite Pakistani batsmen (in that order) are:
1. Javed Miandad
2. Saeed Anwar
3. Aamir Sohail
This is the record of Anwar>
This is the record of Gangu>
Both are equally talented. Both have learned to work with honor dignity and respect. Both had caught the bowlers off guard!
do you think anyone will break saeed anwar's record of scoring 194 runs in oneday internationals?
Of course Yes - Records are meant to be broken. On a given day a batsman on a complacent pitch can achieve this record. Any good batsman - typically like Hayden, Smith, Sehwag, Tendulkar, Dhoni, Afridi, Pieterson, Gayle, or anyone can achieve this. Only it is a matter of time.
Has Saeed Anwar record 194 broken or just equalized ?
Well, to analyze the scoresheet..
Saeed Anwar scored 194 in fewer balls and was dismissed in the end by Kumble while Covertry scored playing more balls but stood there in the end.
But to be honest, in my opinion, Saeed stays on the top because
1. He was playing on away ground and the opposition was at its own soil
2. Playing against India is a very big deal for any Pakistani. We can't even imagine the pressure on Saeed. Even Coventry can't!
why it took almost 13 years for Saeed Anwar 194 to be broken? how long it'll take for sachin 200 to be broken?
I reckon that it will be broken in 2010. It's like the score of 400 in ODI's that had not been achieved until Australia got 434, but then the next innings South Africa got 438 and every few months since a team has got very close to 400 or more. It is the way T20 cricket is making ODI go. David Warner got a 50 off 18 balls the other night. At that rate he'd get a double century off 72 balls!
Will Saeed Anwar's cricket world record high score stand forever?
It will soon be broken.
Strike rates of most new batsman are pretty impressive.
There are already many scores in 180s.
So reaching 200 is seeming possible.
Even the growth of 20-20 Cricket will make batsmen more aggressive.
So i guess it ll be broken
Do You Agree with Saeed Anwar When He says 'Tendulkar is the greatest of Modern Era' and class apart?
Waugh once said when ever Tendulkar takes the stance before wicket he could actually feel 1 billion people sitting on his shoulder hoping for him to play BIG....
Lara or Pointing or Afridi or even Sehwag never feel that pressure. Bradman was greatest in test no doubt but he never faced that pressure. He never played that amount of cricket. More importantly he never played games like one-day n twenty20 which take more toil on the body.
So to sustain that hunger n continuously deliver for over 20 yrs .... makes him not just greatest of modern era but greatest of all time in my eyes.
One biggest yardstick is Bradman himself only chose Tendulkar to compare..... He was the only one who was compared to Bradman even in test not Lara or Pointing.
Why does Saeed Anwar shine above all Pakistan openers?
His innings of 194 of just 146 balls was by far the best innings ever played by any batsman in world cricket in ODI's.
He was also a well behaved guy on the field and was the backbone of the Pakistani in the 90's.
His style of playing shots was marvelous. The way he used to time the ball was impeccable. His cover drives were flawless.
He was technically a very sound batsman.
One of my favorite Pakistani players along with Inzamam Ul Haq.
who was better batsman -- saeed anwar or tendulkar?
Both have played amazing cricket for their respective teams...
However, Sachin would defntly be well ahead of Saeed in terms of comparison for the fact that he is truly dominating the cricketing arena in all forms of the game quite non-chalantly - be it the Tests or the ODIs - the records speak for itself!
And dont forget that Sachin was the only batsman whose batting strokeplay reminded the GREAT Don Bradman..reminded himself of his days!
NEED I SAY MORE - final verdict - Sachin is truly an awesome sportsperson
what pakistani users congratulate tendulker for breaking saeed anwar record?
Ya my long desire cam true. Heartily congrats to Sachin. Really a supreme knock by supreme batsman !
What is Saeed Anwar's reaction after Sachin broke his record?
"In the last one and half decade there were players like Brian Lara, Ricky Pointing, Shahid Afridi and Virender Sehwag who could have gone past the 200-run mark. But I think Tendulkar did it because he is the greatest of modern era and a class apart," Anwar
why is no team brake record now?
Take it easy Inzi,you guys just lost the top spot in the most ODI wickets.
is becos pakistan is best team ever?
Riiiiiight and Shoaib Akhtar is the fittest player ever.
who is the best of the best. Saeed anwar or Sachin tendulkar?
It's Saeed anwar,
simply because he was always the match winner4 Pakis. when India needs sachin. ?
aint do nothing,...almost.
Better to watch is... Saeed anwar.
we miss him in the cricket field ,honestly
