Pakistan’s Batting Line up in the quarter finals against Australia failed to score a decent score which can post a threat to the Dangerous Australian team, Pakistan opted to bat first and added only 213 runs to the total.
Team Green was unable to face the new ball as the wickets keep falling. Wasim Akram, former Captain and left arm fast bowler was disappointed and he vented by criticizing the Pakistani Batting Line Up. As he quotes, “”Plan should have scored 200 in 30overs and then have a go in the last 10overs. (But) They were losing wickets constantly and that was the end of any strategy”.
After watching the performance of Pakistan’s batting line up, one could not disagree with the analysis of Wasim Akram. Though the main problem was the selection of Team or in this case let’s says selection of batsmen. If they can select Nasir Jamshed then why left Fawad Alam who has performed on so many occasions.
Why didn’t they let Sarfaraz play against India, when Moin Khan picked Sarfaraz as a 3rd option for the opening Batsman? Only Misbah was able to conquer the bowling attacks of their opposition. The Great Shahid Afridi or Mr Boom Boom for the thousand time let the nation down with his poor short selection. They seriously need to Evolve or they will going to perish.
