Cricket is higly professional game with lot of prize money. Selection should be on pure merit. I can tell for sure that Pakistani have lot of talents and we can beat any team with no problem but if selection is done properly. Also we should have better policy by organizing tournamaent on schools levels regional levels, distric level and city levels, state level and than picking the best from each tournament.

We must protest this great injustice. Now is the time to sign a petition to bring back Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar to the U-19 team. Every one knows that they are both 16 years old, and they will stay 16 till the next world cup.

I don't know what went wrong to them after the India-Pakistan match. I was expecting the Asia Cup joint-winners to put up a better show than this!

Good job Bangladesh,you are doing great.And Pakistani team should not be disappointed,they lost to better team.Work hard.

Clearly a case of selection bias - in a country with such tremendous talent this is unacceptable. All of the players who did not perform should be dumped and should never be selected in any team again. Also all individuals who selected this team should be discarded too.

Sabih Azhar should be made coach of men 's team if that job is not available he can be appointed Hocky coach...it seems we love losers and now all he needs a medal for his great contribution achieving the worst result of any U19 team in the history.

Surely, one cant blame Pakistan for losing this game.There was no incentive to win a contest for 7th place.
