Some horrible, vile and tasteless comments on social media with regards to Stokes and his personal reasons - mainly from the Indian fans.

Whatever it is all the best to him and his family. Will be missed by england but don’t think it’s a series changer. England have enough quality and experience to win the series

social media is honestly the worst. absolutely disgusting some of the stuff you see aimed at celebrities and sports people on there.

i was never abused but i had to take myself off social media for personal reasons and i cant even imagine what it must be like for those cyber bullied and can understand why the celebs massively get hit hard by these things. Need to better track these tissues and lock em up for life.

Stokes is a big loss for us. A14 is right I’ve seen some of the comments on Twitter, what is wrong with some people

Weakens an already very weak batting line up. Pak will be fancying their chances I feel in the next.

Think they might rest Anderson, still not sure about Archers role in Test cricket
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It shouldn’t be third choice of the new ball.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
If he plays has too take the new ball or leave him out

Might as well do Pak team for 2nd test:

1) Shan
2) Abid
3) Azhar LBW
4) Babar
5) Shafiq
6) Fawad
7) Rizwan
8) Yasir
9) Wahab
10) Abbas
11) Naseem

Agree with the extra batsman, not sure about Wahab though.

Sohail Khan performed well in the intersquad game and he's better than Wahab with the new ball.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah won't be against Sohail either. Only reason for Wahab was the reverse swing element. The youngsters were unable to generate any while we know Wahab is able to. Sohail is pretty decent too with reverse but he is 82-84 MPH while Wahab will hit 90. Both can bat a little too.

Why Imamul Haq is not in the squad? He has a healthy test match average and scored runs in last Pakistan tour to England

comment by T.J (U15973)

He'll probably come in if Abid fails again.

Kash,

Don’t be silly yaar - they not gona drop afridi. Lad bowled well. Agree about the death but that’s not where the game was last in my opinion - shocking tactics from Azhar and some loose shot selection was it.

Reckon they’ll make one change tho - fawad in shadab out.

If we are going with 4 bowlers then we will need to bring in a new bowler to keep it fresh. England are likely to bring in Wood and Curran to freshen there lineup with the short space between the tests.

England can do that kash because that was their 4th test so far, it was our first... maybe change in 3rd test depending on how they get on next game

Fair enough and good point.. but don’t think Pakistan have that kinda luxury or strength in depth when it comes to the respective squads

posted on 10/8/20

Yeah, I dunno how many bowlers you guys have flown over. We were able to call up basically all our options at the start so it's an unusual position having such a large squad at our disposal

Although that was due to the fact we had the 3 match series against Pakistan coming in straight after so we're essentially trying to keep bowlers fresh during what is a 6 match series for us just against 2 different sides.

Broad and Woakes have to be retained as they have been instrumental in us winning 3 tests in a row. Archer and Anderson are the two at risk although it wouldn't surprise me if the selectors backed both of them for the 2nd test and then brought in Curran and Wood for the final test.

West Indies bowlers were gased after 1 test. Whole reason for playing Shadab was to allow rest for the 4 bowlers but he hardly got a lookin. We picked a 20 man squad for this 3 test series and have bowlers waiting like:

Wabab
Sohail
Shenwari
Imran Khan
Fahim
Kashif (spinner)

Got to freshen it up. If England win toss and bat, it could be long day.

Shinwaru should be given opportunity.

Broad handed a demerit point for bad language towards Yashir Shah, and 15% of his match fee.

1 more point away from a suspension.

I remember him throwing the ball at batsman in his follow through in 2010 test series at zulqernain which led to fracture and he got away with suspension. Generally, English, Aussies and Indians get away with it

Is Amir injured?

It'd be good to see him in this test.

Pretty sure he's retired from test cricket.
