Will This Strategic Evolution of Pak Cricket Team Work in WI Tour?

Pakistan Cricket Team has left for West Indies. The team combination, the bowling factors and the strategy which they are going to adopt both in bowling and batting needs some special attention. Tis is because of the Induction of players like Ahmed Shehzad and Shahid Khan Afridi. But still there are questions regarding the form of players.

All the newly inducted players have not played the domestic cricket. So they carry a question mark regarding the form and fitness. Rest of the team is just back from ICC Champions Trophy so they psychologically not in a better position to form a better winning combination. The captain Misbah ul Haq refused to utter few words regarding their preparation and combination at Karachi airport. He send Nasir Jamshed who seemed determined to make a win.

The batting strategy is going to change as Muhammad Hafeez will not be opening the inning along with Nasir Jamshed. Ahmed Shahzad is expected to open. He is young, energetic, talented and more over confident enough so we can expect a good show from him. Misbah ul Haq said "As we are having three regular openers, so we can have any one from Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shahzad or Muhammad Hafeez going to open the game".

Saeed Ajmal has been quoted as being used in some unique bowling combination to tackle the strong batting line of West Indies. But all this is still vague. We have to wait for the time when they do something positive at practical grounds to make the whole nation proud.

Good Luck the cricket team, cricket fans and the whole Pakistan.
