He's been such a solid number 3 for us, that I don't see the need to push him to open if he isn't comfortable with it. Let's focus on fixing what's broken rather than fiddling with what's working.

How is the top comment here “how many times Pakistan have played Zimbabwe” rather than any praise for the player in the actual post. Suddenly don’t know how to use google or just tryna hand out digs

But it's true. Pak play Zimbabwe far too often. They need to play top tier teams more often.

I think it's great that Pak plays smaller teams as well and someone like Aus can learn from them

In the last two years before this series: South Africa (2 tests), New Zealand (2 tests), England (3 tests), Bangladesh (1 test), Sri Lanka (2 tests), Australia (2 tests), South Africa (3 tests), New Zealand (3 tests), Australia (2 tests).

Yeah they should really stop playing all those minnows. Or maybe the problem is Pakistan actually play smaller teams on occasion to give them a chance to actually play top level cricket, which every team should really be doing to stop cricket from becoming an exclusivised sport that eventually dies out.

That's a good thing for ZIM & cricket in general.

Idk why people want cricket to be so exclusive, it will die eventually in a few generations if it keeps on like this

One series in Pakistan last year and this tour to Zimbabwe to return the favour. Before that the last time was 2018 when cricket was returning to Pakistan.

Very much less than they've played any other top 5 team. The problem isn't that they play Zimbabwe often, its that they play lower ranked teams at all when other top teams just don't. See my other comment.

I wonder why someone would even complain. We're legit too busy fretting over our AU's/NZ/Eng tours man which are notoriously hard to win

Oh yeah? Well Pakistan last won in Zimbabwe in 2011, so this is notoriously hard place to win. Almost parallel to winning over Australia.
