Naeem did not have a good World Cup (batting wise) but he showed a lot of heart while bowling (except against South Africa). For you to say he has got zero talent, I would ask you to check the following link:

Also, please check his batting stats on CricInfo (both test and one day) and compare them with other batsmen in the team.;view=innings;view=innings

Bear in mind that when you bat at number 8, you bat most of the time with the tail-enders and sometimes you come towards the end when you just have to swing the bat to get some runs.

It's a pity we never tried Naeem/Mahmudullah at number 4 (or 6) for an extended period of time. It would have allowed us to play an extra bowler. That's how we beat NZ, Zim last year!
