Pakistan vs Australia 2017, 2nd ODI's Heads Up

Image Credits: 

This series has been very interesting so far, apart from the test series, because that was mostly one sided. After seeing brilliant performances with the bowl in the first ODI, our expectations have gone up. Realizing the fact Mohammad Hafeez will be captaining the Pakistan side has brought in a lot of hopes. (No offence to Azhar Ali). It would be nice to see Junaid Khan bowl along with Mohammad Amir. As we all know, Junaid Khan is one of the best pace bowlers produced by Pakistan. The nation would be really delighted if he bowls today. Talking about Amir? This lad had a great start to this ODI series, a hat-trick bowl, Dismissing the captain and the vice-captain of opponents in 2 deliveries. Am I the only one expecting some fireworks today?

Honestly speaking, this is the batting lineup I wanted. Yes, the performance was not good yesterday, but the players are brilliant. Umar Akmal and Mohammad Hafeez have made some records previously. Mohammad Rizwan can bat well, Imad Wasim is a great allrounder to have in the team, and finally Sharjeel Khan. I am expecting much better batting performance from yesterdays.

The openers, however need to be changed. Mohammad Hafeez is a great opener, and I think he should stay, but Asad Shafiq is not really made for ODI cricket, and the selectors should have understood this by now. Per my cricketing experience and knowledge, I think Sharjeel Khan should be opener with Mohammad Hafeez.

Well, this is it for my 2nd ODI heads up, hope to hear from you.
