    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.

    Must start on a winning note v WI. Need to pick up Gayle early otherwise it will be carnage.

    Want to see Asif in the side, so Malik should be benched. Haris should play.

    MUST win game.

    Play Asif, no need for Malik.

    Amir, Wahab, Hasan, Shadab, Hafeez, Imad. Bowling attack.

    If we bat first and score min 275 I'm confident.

    Inn Shaa Allah we will win.

    Pakistan isn't that bad that they should be losing to Afghanistan. They need to work on three things. Game awareness, fielding and planning. The batting is good enough, the bowlers need to set plans and play accordingly. Them plans could be regarding field placing, lines and lengths or even planing targets to restrict opposition.

    Need a spin heavy attack, especially Hafeez and Malik for the lefties.

    I would go for

    Imam
    Fakhar
    Babar
    Sarfraz
    Malik
    Hafeez
    Asif
    Imad
    Shadab
    Hasan
    Amir

    Only going with 2 pacers and getting Hafeez + Malik to complete 10 ovs as the game is at Trent Bridge

    Pakistan opening will be key, openers should look for a consolidation stand and rotate strike

    I think we might be in trouble with 10 overs of Hafeez and Malik. Either they will make crucial breakthroughs of lefties or they will be plundered. Might as well go with this:

    1. Imam
    2. Fakhar
    3. Babar
    4. Sarfraz
    5. Hafeez
    6. Asif
    7. Shadab
    8. Amir
    9. Hassan
    10. Wahab
    11. Hasnain

    It would be pretty incredible to watch us completely dismantle WI by 8+ wickets or 100+ runs and have the team be like "lolz you all thought we'd suck"

    Mind blowing analysis as usual and I must admit your optimism is a great inspiration in these challenging world cup times for us Pakistanis.

    If I could, I would replace Sarfaraz with Shoaib Malik.

    Sarfaraz is more of a liability on the team rather than an intelligent captain or a keeper.

    Asif should play over Haris.

    Best possible team that can play tomorrow. Right to drop Malik, Hasnain and Shaheen.
