There were a few notable exclusions from the ODI squad of Pakistan against South Africa. Where people criticized the axing of the left arm pacer Junaid Khan, some also emphasized on the fact that Asif Ali should have been named in the squad as well. 

After all, if the lower middle order is analyzed deeply, there's a room for a power hitter and Pakistan seems to be lacking the force there. Asif Ali has been playing in the Mzansi Super League (MSL) throughout and he has gained significant amount of experience of the conditions in South Africa. 

However, the hard-hitter from Faisalabad has been ignored for the ODI series and it will take some extremely good performances in the domestic circuit for Asif to regain his lost spot in the national ODI setup.
