Pakistan had to suffer a humilating defeat in the first of the two-game Test series against Australia. Recording a sturdy performance against a healthy unit of Australia A, a good show from the boys in green was expected in the opening red-ball game. However, they crublmed under pressure to receive an innings and a 5-run defeat.
Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif recently reviewed the loss and advised few changes for the Test matched scheduled to take place in Adelaide from November 29. The cricketer turned expert wants Pakistan to open with Abid Ali and Shan Masood, with Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam forming the middle-order.
Sticking with Rizwan as keeper, he went on to pick 4 pacers and Yasir Shah to establish Pakistan’s bowling attack. Rashid picked Mohammad Abbas, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi and one of Imran Khan or Musa Khan to complete the pace artillery.
The Karachi born added that the green team was short of one pacer in Brisbane which also caused trouble to Yasir Shah with the excessive load. It remains to be seen how Pakistan think tank responds to Rashid’s advice as they look to draw the two-match Test series.
