So after the retirement of Misbah ul Haq and Shahid Afrdid from One day internationals (ODI), the green shirts seem to lose their track under the New ODI Captain Azhar Ali, who was unable to gel the team together. The Bengal tiger’s hunted down Paki-Eagles as they clean swept the ODI series with 3-0. Reasons of defeat were all the same, bad fielding, bad bowling and even worst batting.
The returning King of Spin was crushed by the Bangladeshi batting line up; as he only captured one wicket in the two matches combined,
The Bangladeshi batting found their way through the labyrinth of Wahab Riaz, yes the same Wahab who bowled a magical spell against Aussies in the Quarter finals of world cup 2015.
Professor Hafeez, who cleared his bowling test but somehow forgot his batting class scored only 8 runs in the ODI Series, there is no sign of confidence.
A hurdle lies in the way of Pakistani team as they will be playing a T-20 against the confident Bangladeshi team. The Captain for the Pakistani T-20 squad is Shahid Khan Afridi. A player who is known for his aggressive batting and cunning bowling with a touch of exquisite fielding, the man has his grey areas but still there is no better option than him, he can pull this team together but only for a day. Anticipating the only T-20 match we hope that Pakistan crushes the Bangladeshi team. Let’s wait and see if Shahid Khan Afridi matters or not …
