    Which one of these in your opinion can trouble AUS in Test series.

    Also, given FOUR pacers (Abbas, Shaheen, Musa & Naseem) we have in our Test squad, what type of bowling attack would you opt for first Test at Brisbane, keeping the fact in mind that it is the same ground on which last time in 2016 Pakistan was lost with 40 runs, while chasing 490 runs in 4th innings.

    I'd say Shaheen most likely.

    Abbas and Shaheen would be the part of starting 11 for sure... 3rd pacer should be Musa and Yasir Shah will be the spinner!!

    Both Musa and Naseem are not tall, like Shaheen and Hasnain, so the height advantage is missing.

    I can understand that Naseem shah was very successful against U-19 SA, but this is a different ball game. However, Musa is too short, I believe and I am also not convinced that he possesses express pace, which would trouble AUS, unless I am missing a point here ...

    Naseem, they need a 3rd pacer. Naseem is good with bouncers. We need short spells from him. Abbas, Shaheen, Naseem & Yasir Shah

    Abid Ali, Imam, Azher Ali, Asad Shafiq, Babar Azam, Haris, Rizwan, Abbas, Naseem Shah, Shaheen, Yasir Shah

    I will play Shan ahead of Abid, who played really well in SA.

    Also, wouldnt change the batting order to safe Azhar. He should continue to open along with Imam and Shan should come at no.3, followed by Harris, Asad and Babar.

    Doable but the problem is Azher's reflexes are slow now, Pace will get him, Its best he comes 1 down. I still think Abid is better playing back foot on bouncy tracks. Shan is still not able to decide whether he wants to be a wrist or stroke player. However its a catch 22 situation.

    Babar must bat at 3 in test series the way he is batting right now~~ It wont be easy for Azhar to bat in the top order as he is also coming after such a long time!! New ball wont help Azhar either! Older ball he will be able to see!!

    Start Babar off at 6 and if he makes a century or If he looks good move him to 4.

    Is waqt puri team mein Babar se acha kisi ko ball nazar nahi araha its very important for Babar as well as team that he bats at 3 and gets a big 100 straightaway!! It will lift the confidence of entire team!!
