The same strategy SWOT can also be applied to the Pakistani Cricket team, a team that has already seen the Highs and Lows of International Cricket in just the two months of the year 2012.
Clean Sweep Test Series win against England was a historic achievement, but getting clean swept by the same English team in the ODIs and losing the 3 match T20 series to England 2-1 just brought team Pakistan back to the World.
Anyways team Pakistan had its moments against England in the U.A.E and now the team is about to leave for Bangladesh to participate in the Asia Cup. Asia Cup has not brought pleasant memories for the Green Shirts, out of the previously played 10 editions we have won just once in 2000 in the Captaincy of Moin Khan and the place was Bangladesh.
