In my opinion, Pakistan need those players more who go up the order and take initiative than those who slog down the order specially in English conditions! Pakistan ke decline ki waja yehi hai ke Pakistan ne hamesha Umar Akmal jaise naehl logon ko Younus Khan jaise ehl logon per prefer kiya hai jo niche se hit lagate hein!! Uper se ja ker attack karna aur foundation daalna ziada mushkil kaam hai as compared to slogging down the order. Have a look at this lineup: Imam Fakhar Abid Ali (Keeper) (Can bat like Sachin Tendulkar, abs majestic with his strokeplay) Babar Azam Harris Sohail Hafeez Shoaib Malik Fahim Ashraf Amir Hassan Junaid / Hasnain This lineup gives more flexibility and room to top 4 to go out and play their strokes without any fear as in case of any hiccup they have experienced batsmen like Harris Sohail, Hafeez and Shoaib Malik who can help them consolidate!! This is what india usually do! They give full license to their top order to go out and play their strokes cus they know they have MS Dhoni whom they can fall back upon in case of a crisis! And what happens cus of this their top order goes out and bats aggressively and piles runs and when they lose wickets, they have MS Dhoni who can bat according to given situation and finish the game!! This is the strategy Pakistan should work with! And Sarfraz is no longer required in short format in my opinion!! Sarfraz should stick to test cricket now!!
