Pakistan Wins Dubai Series vs Sri Lanka

Shahid Khan Afridi again performing and taking Pakistan to victory stand; This time it was his bowling to do the miracle. Pakistan has won the series of three ODIs by 2-0 with one game left. Salman But declared Man Of Match for his responsible batting.

Having good hopes for the future, we can see that Pakistan is again going to have a good opening pair in this Warid Cricket series being held at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Dubai. Its not the first time that we have seen some good performence from openers after departure of Aamir Sohail and then his companion Saeed Anwar. At different timings, different players have given good results as opening batsmen but dilema is that there has been no continuation in performence of opening pairs. There may be various reasons for this but keeping short, this is a big problem of Pakistan Cricket for at least 5 years if not 8.

Salman Butt and Imran Nazir again played well to provide solid opening partnership of quick 45 runs in only 4.5 overs. Imran Nazir went back to pavilion and Yasir Hameed took over the responsibility to assist Salman Butt and this pair scored at the pace of more than run a ball. Yasir Hameed has played well over some last years as opener and as one down batsman. He has scored many fifties playing some real good innings in his carrier but a big flaw and draw back in his technique rather in his patience is that when he reaches his first mile stone of 50 runs, he gets vulnerable and plays some wicket throwing strokes and he has never failed in doing so. He must be taught now to control his habit of being restless at this stage.

At the time when Yasir had departed, Muhammad Yousaf and Salman Butt played well but just after dismissal of the giant Muhammad Yousaf there happened a sort of debacle again. Afridi was not able to score something. He just made a single and went back to pavilion. Also Abdul Razaq was not able to deliver at tis stage and at one stage it looked difficult to make 300 runs while some overs ago, Pakistan was going at such a pace to cross the barrier of 350 even. It was Muhammad Sami who hit some marellous shots and made 22 runs only off 12 balls making it possible for Pakistan to make 313 runs.

Shahid Afridi who was not able to deliver with his bat came made his contribution with his bowling. He conceeded only 37 runs in his 10 overs getting 3 wickets of crucial players at critical times.
