With the re-introduction of javed, mehrab and akram, it seems that there is enough "talent" in the top order for kapali to bat lower. that's where he has been successful, and I agree that players should be grromed before moving up the order. anytime someone scores a 50, he is pushed up the order or asked to open, etc.

wisden made a comment today about us not having enough talent as the only new post-WC face is tareq aziz. that's an interesting point. where are the new players from the U-19 ranks or the senior players who haven't played for the country before but are now peaking in their careers? If we don't have any of them we are in trouble.

I know the capped players were brought back as a stop gap measure to add experience. And we need to stick by the current team and not drop them after each defeat. But are there a healthy dose of players who are doing well in the local leagues, guess I don't have a got sense of individual performance in the domestic competitions.
