    Australia is the team to beat this time. I expect India VS Australia and Pakistan VS South Africa semifinals. Australia will be tough to beat for India and Pakistan will beat South Africa. Beating Australia will take some doing!!

    Hafeez ka role as opener buhat important hai @SwingNSeam he will have to do an Azhar Ali in the World Cup final similar to what Azhar did in CT final that is Fakhar ko batting karwayi strike apne pass rakh kar jab Fakhar nervous tha!!

    Ill have Hafeez opening cus I want Harris Sohail and Shoaib Malik in that middle order!! Only way to get Hafeez in that middle order is to have Harris Sohail opening with Fakhar Zaman which I dont think is the right idea as Hafeez has opened for majority of his career therefore he must open and Harris should bat in the middle order at that crucial Mohd Yousuf No. 4 position!!

    Power hitters ke chakar mein Pakistan saare World Cup haarte aaya hai while most teams rely on their top order to give them a good safe start without losing wickets and then they pile on big runs in the last 15- 20 overs. What you need is a good start and then to build from there with extended batting lineup!!

    Exactly your point. Pakistan at any moment can be 30-2 at that point you want to get to 270, with power hitter you won't cross even 200. If the power hitter was of Jos' calibre or could bowl ten overs then that's perfect the Asif Ali types which Pak fans vouch for are a waste of time. It's best to develop Imad or Faheem.

    This is a perfect bowling graph:

    1-9 Amir Shaheen
    10-17 Fahim Hassan
    18-30 Harris Sohail (7 overs) Hafeez (4 overs) Malik (2 overs)
    31-36 Amir Shaheen
    37-42 Fahim Hassan
    43-50 Amir Shaheen Fahim Hassan

    Amir 10, Shaheen 9, Hassan 9, Fahim 9.
    Harris Sohail 7, Hafeez 4, Malik 2.

    Hafeez off spinner hai he can be taken for runs cus he does not have a doosra whereas Harris Sohail left arm spin is not easy to get away! Harris Sohail's bowling is very underrated in my opinion! He is your Aamir Sohail type left arm spinner!!

    Younus Khan or Mohd Yousuf in odis? Younus Khan's avg in 30s is very low for a player of his caliber but Younus batted at No. 3 for most part of his career in odis whereas he could have easily batted at 4. Also, Michael Vaughan had a similar average as Younus in odis and Vaughan was a class player too. I dont think that average reflects the kind of class player Younus was even in odis. When Younus would bat, he would bat through the innings and steer the team home with a big century. I dont think Younus fulfilled his potential in odis. Specially in 2015 WC, he was wasted in my opinion! Younus could have won us 2015 WC on his own had he been allowed to play in his own manner!!
    I loved Mohd Yousuf's style and grace too and Yousuf alongwith Saeed Anwar and Mark Waugh were the classiest batsmen to play cricket!!

    I wanted to have Mark Waugh in my ROW 11. There was no place for him at No. 4 otherwise Lara and Steve Waugh would have been disturbed and dont want to put him at No. 6 either so could only find opening good for him as other openers like Hayden are not as great as younger Waugh!!

    Its just down to which pacer you exclude! Can Hassan Ali be considered as an allrounder in place of Fahim Ashraf?
    @SwingNSeam
    Mujhe lag raha hai agar Amir fit hogaya to Fahim Ashraf drop hoga aur Asif Ali jaga banayega kisi batsman ki jaga dont know whom - Malik or Harris Sohail?

    There will be one change in next match i believe ie Hasnain in place of Shaheen. If Amir is fit, he will play in place of Hassan or Junaid.

    Junaid will get an axe if Amir gets fit cus when we decide to play 4 fast bowlers according to pitch and conditions, Fahim will be needed then and you cant play 4 specialist fast bowlers in that case.
