Shaoib Malik faced 38 balls in 4 LO matches on this tour and was dismissed 4 times for just 34 runs together. He dropped catches in the field during the one day series which you'd expect him to take. He went at 7 an over with the ball when he did bowl. This too on flat pitches against a minnow side. Should he be selected for the Sri Lanka series? It's about as a horrible come back as it gets. There is competition from the likes of Hammad Azam for that no 5 or 6 spot. He has been hard done by after scoring 36 on debut and bowling a tidy spell against Ireland. Personally, I don't rate Malik too highly. He is a mediocre cricketer at best, but a brilliant outfielder.
