'Pakistan needs another frontline batsman and bowler'

Carlyle Laurie

Former Pakistan batsman Aamer Sohail, writing for pakpassion.net, said that Pakistan’s selectors should consider introducing another top order batsman and fast bowler into the side for the series against Australia in September.

"The concerns for the Pakistan think-tank should revolve around the introduction of a front-line batsman for the forthcoming series against Australia, after the tour of Sri Lanka. I would suggest Asad Shafiq or Nasir Jamshed be reintroduced the T20 starting lineup," Sohail said. "Another front-line seam bowler is also required and the Pakistani selection committee, coach and captain should be considering this going forward. Pakistan must identify these resources in order to become a formidable T20 side and will need to act accordingly if they want to feel confident going into the T20 World Cup."
