Must Give Haider Ali, Mohd. Nawaz And Mohd. Waseem A Go
Pakistan are almost certain to proceed to the semi-finals and so, it would be a good idea to try youngsters Haider Ali, Mohd. Nawaz and Mohd. Wasim during the match to ensure that all of them have good match practice ahead of the knockout stage because for one reason or the other the men in green might as well need their services down the lane.

Mustn’t Drop Mohd. Hafeez And Hasan Ali
While Pakistan must try its bench strength; it won’t be a good idea to drop out of form players like Mohd. Hafeez and Hasan Ali. Instead both of them should be given a chance to reclaim their confidence against a relatively weak side. Imad Wasim, Shaheen Afridi and Fakhar Zaman on the other hand should be rested to facilitate those sitting on the bench.

Must Bat First
