Pakistan better win the toss and bat first..Otherwise we will see another match over before it even started! Pakistan should look to solidify their batting order and post a total between 270-280. Afridi should get some batting done in this type of pitch before the big game against Sri Lanka, I expect a powerful innings from him. Same goes to Umar Akmal we should expect him to bat before Misbah and provide a good platform. Also Younis Khan and Abdul Razzaq need to put some solid innings together for their confidence. As far as the bowling is concerned they should stick with their speedsters Shoaib, Gul & Wahab. Akhtar still has pace and will cause a lot of trouble to the Kenyans, and expect good bowling from Wahab as he would want to solidify his spot in the Pakistan XI. Just be aware of the Kenyan spinners, especially the Ngoche brothers they could be a threat.
