    BARBADOS: A few changes will be made in the Pakistan cricket team for the remaining matches of the one-day international series.

    Captain Shahid Afridi said that he wanted to provide chances to young players while faults in batting line have to be removed.

    Talking with Geo News from Barbados, Afridi said that in the upcoming matches, fast bowler Wahab Riaz would be replaced by Tanveer Ahmed while opener Taufiq Umar would be played in place of Mohammad Hafeez.

    Regarding fast bowler Junaid Khan, the skipper said that the young pacer has begun his international career just now and he wanted to give him more chances.

    He said that middle-order batsman Usman Salahuddin may be included in the final eleven of the last match of the series.

    Afridi said that he was glad the national team has won two consecutive series under his captaincy and it shows that the team’s performance is being improved day-by-day.

    Rather than resting Hafeez and Wahab he may aswell rest himself along with Misbah....play Sadaf and Salahuddin!

    Well with the series already in the bag and WI not looking to put up challenges, its time Pakistan tested its bench strength. Not too sure about playing Taufeeq Umar. His natural game is Test Cricket as is Azhar Ali's. It isn't a wise move imo.

    Time has arrived that we separate Test Players from the ODI squad.

    With Hafeez rested it should mean Hammad gets a few more overs to bowl. Maybe as a 1st change bowler?
    But I dont see why they are trying Tanvir out now, surely he is too old for a fast bowler if your looking to build a team for the future.
    Also Taufeeq maybe a good a selection for his solidity but I have no clue as to how he will make runs in the shorter version, unless he has a totally different game plan compared to his test matches
