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.

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.

Pakistan is yet to bat first in the tournament and hence, it is imperative for them to do that prior to the semi-final stage. The men in green then must look to bat first if they win the toss.

Regardless of their status in the cricket world, Pakistan must not underestimate Namibia. They seem like a pretty decent group that can surprise any team on their day. The green shirts don’t want an unwanted surprise just before the knockout stage and so, must guard against complacency.
