i know zia is on the fringes of the national team and closer to it than alauddin but i really think alauddin is a better pick than him, he's got more potential and he's also a better performer. if they pick zia they may as well pick a specialist batsman because at most he'll probably bowl only a couple of overs which can basically be made up from spinners anyway. abul as an allrounder would be a better pick than zia.
