Pakistan and Australian teams both are in the most renowned teams in T20 cricket. Pakistan is not in good touch as they faced a white wash from Sri lanka recently but now its a very different game here in Australia. Australian team is also in very good form as they defeated srilanka by 3-0 .Moreover Pakistani team is all ready to face Australian side by making slight changes in bowling department.
Pakistani cricket team bowling attack including M.Irfan ,M.Amir and Wahab Riaz ,full capable of blowing away any team with their experience and quality bowling. Babar Azam a new captain,with a new mindset ,let see how he cops with problems which will have to face during captaining Pakistani team.
The squad composition whispers rhetoric like “faith in youngsters” and “we’re young and confident” yada yada, But if you happen to be listening closely it could also scream real talk like “we’ve already thrown in the towel” and “there is no hope”.
Factor in the recent shellacking received at the hands of Sri Lanka, which itself received a shellacking at the home of their inhospitable hosts, and the pessimism makes total sense.
Don’t forget the rookie leadership angle as well.
So on paper, perception and everything, this young, inexperienced, helpless and hapless Pakistan side should not and does not logically stand a chance against the mighty Aussies in Australialand — even without Glenn Maxwell.
Then take a look at the line-up that dominated a Cricket Australia XI on Thursday. Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Rizwan (has two ODI centuries against Australia), Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Khushdil Shah, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Irfan and Wahab Riaz.
Apart from Khushdil, which player looks out of place for the format? The inexperience may have been overplayed a little because the roster has enough to cobble together an XI of people who know what they’re doing. Any youth would only be sprinkled rather than mixed. When put that way, the situation doesn’t sound as hopeless. The Qadirs and Musas probably won’t be seen front and centre, and with their roles limited and managed, the team actually is not half bad.
