Shaheen Afridi led side has already lost the first two T20s of the #PAKvsNZ five-match series and so, here is a look at why Pakistan is not doing well and what is there that they need to do in order to stage a comeback.
#PAKvsNZ: Shaheen Afridi Needs To Ensure That He Plays The Right Playing XI
Pakistan during the last two years or so has developed this horrible habit of selecting the wrong playing XI. Shaheen Afridi alongside the new team management, it seems is repeating the same mistake for reasons that defy logic. Players like Mohd. Nawaz and Mohd. Wasim merit an opportunity however, the team management seems bent upon playing under performers like Usama Mir etc.
Hence, it is imperative for Shaheen Afridi to put his foot down and ensure that the right playing XI plays the remaining matches because otherwise Pakistan might as well suffer another white-wash.
Make Use Of The Sixth Bowler
Shaheen Afridi for whatever reason has only tried five bowlers during the first two T20. It is strange because generally all teams employ a sixth bowler to unsettle oppositions. Hence, it is important for Afridi to identify his best sixth bowler and then ensure that he is fully utilized during the ongoing series.
Lead With Example
Frankly, Shaheen’s own performance is not very encouraging. He needs to find a way to get back to his best asap because in Pakistan only performing skippers are able to survive.
