Ten reasons for bafflement

The Multan one-day international was a baffling experience

The Multan one-day international was a baffling experience. Here are ten reasons for bafflement:

1 Shahid Afridi opening the batting instead of coming in down the order. 2 Mohammad Hafeez not opening the batting with Imran Farhat. 3 Shoaib Malik's form. 4 Rao Iftikhar's selection. 5 Umar Gul's absence and Abdur Rehman's absence. 6 Some Pakistan fans being unable to appreciate anything Faisal Iqbal ever does. 7 Yasir Hameed's eternity away from the international scene. 8 Kamran Akmal's inability to find some form. 9 Abdul Razzaq's decision not to bowl Rana more. 10 Abdul Razzaq's captaincy in general.
