Inclusion of One Bowler Destroys English Batting at Oval

First three test matches were real test for Pakistani team in the field. They were always missing some some passionate bowling and impressive fielding. Three main bowlers Asif, Rana and Shoaib are no doubt key to success for Pakistan.

English team which was performing extraordinarily against a poor bowling attack just collapsed when only one of above three mentioned came back. Muhammad Asif, who was the star bowler against India and Sri Lanka earlier this year, was really awaited to perform against England at English pitches. Though Pakistan has already lost the series but this win will give them confidence for one day series but still a lot of cricket is to be played in this match.

Also its a good decision to give a chance to those who have performed at some certain level. Muhammad Hafeez had never been in good opener for Pakistan but in previous matches he was in form and had scored against Australia, India and South Africa at Australia in first class cricket. Even i would condemn the decision of sending Taufeeq Umer to England after failure of Salman But. Now in this match unfortunately Hafeez got retired hurt other wise he was confident and his technique was batter. At least we as viewers have no fear that next ball would go to slips.
