First things first! Pakistan generally wins when their bowlers deliver. In Australia however, the green caps suffer because their bowlers fail to adjust. So, it is absolutely imperative for the coaching staff to ensure that the bowling unit is well settled and that everyone involved knows what line and length would suit them during the entire trip.

Steven Smith is a class act and hence, there is no need to explain why Pakistani bowlers need to dismiss him early. David Warner on the other hand hasn’t done too well at the Test level ever since making a comeback following a 12 month ban. Nevertheless, he was brilliant against the Sri Lankans the other day and therefore, would be a real threat for the Pakistani bowlers to deal with. So, they are bound to hurt the green caps if they allow them to settle and if they don’t get rid of them early in the innings.

Both Waqar and Misbah it seems over-worked the entire unit during practice sessions against Sri Lanka. The end results then was disastrous. So let’s just hope that they learn and don’t repeat their mistakes again. Also, lets remain hopeful that the Misbah-ul-Haq led Pakistan enters both the T20 and the Test series while their minds and bodies are still fresh.
