- Poor form of Abdul Razzaq with the bat and his lethargic approach to the context of the game as well as towards the ground fielding. Need to bring Shoaib Mailk in the side.
- Umar Akmal's Mojo Jojo thinking, not a batsman on this planet can hit each and every ball, then how could you young Akmal? Need to focus more.
- Utilization of batting powerplay: so far in the ODI series Pakistan has been pathetic in powerplay overs. Trying to many different things and losing lots of wickets meanwhile has been a routine for Pakistan. Team Green must learn how to rotate the strike on regular basis during the powerplay and that is all what is required. Milk singles and doubles every ball, put bad balls away to the boundary and 40-45 runs can easily be scored of those 5 overs.
No need to take extra risks and play brainless aerial shots.
- Sarfaraz Ahmad has a very good domestic batting record, Pakistan has failed to utilize him properly. In my book Sarfaraz is a perfect number 6. Send him up the order. Afridi to bat at number 7.
