Interesting to note that both Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman were retired out. It's like when you are playing against kids and after scoring too many runs you say.....ok it's your turn now
Their bowling was very childish. Let's see how our batsman play against their main strike bowlers. Here are highlights of the match.

بچوں کو مار کے خوش نہیں ہونا چاہیے

ویسے بھی اگر دیکھا جایۓ تو ہمارے اوپنرز تو چلے لیکن بعد کے تین اہم بلے باز بابر اعظم، محمد حفیظ اور شعیب ملک بلکل ٹھس ہو گیے جو کہ خوش آیند بات نہیں ہے۔
اندازہ کرو کے حسن علی نے تیسرے نمبر پر سب سے زیادہ اسکور کیا ہے۔
Martin Guptil their opener is back in the squad after injury so now their batting line is strong. Pakistan bowling is no joke either so I guess he will have to score at least two fifties in ODIs otherwise it could spell trouble for them.

Their bowling is pretty decent especially on home conditions so our batsmen will have to apply some technique.
I think Hafeez won't perform on this tour as he is not a good batter on seaming/bouncy pitches. Plus he is not bowling either so I am not sure why he is in the team!
Haris Sohail would have been a better choice than him in ODI.
