Pakistan is going into this first crucial game of WC 2019 with the worst possible position. Having lost 10 ODIs and 1 Warm up game consecutively. They are not assured of their playing XI. The bowlers are struggling big time to strike in the first 10 overs with new balls. WI had historically beaten us on most occasions in World Cups. Out of 10 times we had played against WI we had lost 7 times to them. They are no pushovers this time as well. They have very explosive batsman in their ranks and also their pace bowling is good as well. Their only weakness is this WC seems to be spin bowling. WI have 5-6 left handers in their batting lineup so playing Hafeez is a must in my opinion. Pakistan had to decide to go with Shoaib Malik or Asif Ali? Play Imad or Haris? Which pacers to play? Some really big questions ahead of this game. What should be the playing XI in your opinion? My playing XI would be: Fakhar Imam Babar Haris Sarfaraz Hafeez Asif Shadab Wahab Hassan Amir Imad should not play as their are so many left handers in WI squad. Discuss!
