Pakistan will be going to Australia to participate in the 5 match one day series starting from Jan 13, 2017. It will be a wonderful contest capturing the attention of the TV audiences around the world. One can watch the great Mohammad Amir in action along with Wahab Riaz. Both of them have the capability to put any batting line up to sword with their capability to generate pace and bounce under any condition.
The only weak chink in the Pakistan batting lineup is the absence of experienced cricketers. Ahmed Shehzad is the key at the top and he needs to fire to provide solidity to the tourists batting department. Mickey Arthur has his job cut out if Pakistan wants to make a powerful statement in the upcoming Australian one day series.
Aussies are sitting pretty with their top of the line bowlers having enough firepower to trouble even the best batting line up in the world. Pakistan openers would have to contend with the likes of Starc who can take early wickets and dent their morale. The trick is not to allow early wickets to fall or else the Aussies will be on a rampage in the blink of an eyelid.
In the middle order, Sarfaraz Ahmed, the wicket keeper might have to play the sheet anchor role in order to boost the chances of Pakistan in test series. More often than not, the tourist side is blamed for losing wickets top rash shot. The attacking instinct has to be curbed and controlled aggression needs to be the mantra of the Pakistan cricket team.
Rahat Ali can prove to be a surprise package because he has the capability to bowl tight line and length not only to block the scoring rate but take crucial wickets to pull the tourists back into the game.
