World Cup Squad – Pakistan (Part 3)
Umar Akmal:
Umar Akmal is currently going through a run drought, however, he has all the potential in the world to silent his critics. Umar Akmal is a sensational product of domestic cricket and has justified his inclusion in the team with the century against New Zealand
in his debut test match. The brother of Kamran Akmal, played some brilliant knocks in the start of his career. His first One Day International century was against Sri Lanka and that was the third game of his career. Pakistan’s initial matches in the World
Cup are being hosted in and Umar Akmal will certainly cherish his past on his favourite hunting ground.
Known for his fearless and flashy batting, Umar Akmal has played 24 games for Pakistan and has scored 784 runs. His average of 37.33 is quite decent and he has scored six half centuries. He is a very good fielder and can certainly lift the team up with some
special effort in the field. He is particularly sharp in playing cut shots and pulls and his additional ability to hit the long shots with ease makes him special.
Abdul Razzaq:
Abdul Razzaq is not less than a time bomb for the opposition. On his day he is the super star with the bat and the ball. When he is off coloured, he is just an average team member. Who would know better than In the recent series against South
Africa in Abu Dhabi, Razzaq and Pakistan were having a quiet series. The time bomb was triggered and in the second One Day International he blasted 109 runs unbeaten, a winning innings off just 72 balls with a strike rate of 151.38. He smashed seven boundaries
and 10 amazing sixes. Pakistan had no hope in that match, but Abdul Razzaq plucked the win out of thin air.
Pakistan will be hoping that he produces such innings more often in the World Cup. The surfaces for the World Cup are tailor made for his liking. He can open the innings or blast decent cameos down the order while using the power plays. Abdul has
played 248 games for Pakistan and has scored 4921 runs at an average of 30.56. He has scored 22 half centuries and three tons. In the bowling department, he has bagged 259 wickets. Razzaq is quite capable of exploiting the bowling conditions and is efficient
while bowling the reverse swing.
Abdur Rehman:
A surprise inclusion in the squad is left-arm orthodox spinner and quite handy with the bat down the order. The thirty year old Abdur Rehman has played a decent amount of the first-class cricket however he is new at the international level. He played his
debut game against, the selectors gave him green signal for the World Cup
Abdur Rehman is ept at restricting the opposition to score quickly and has played 14 games for the national team. In his short spell with Pakistan, he has claimed 12 wickets at a high average of 45.50. In the batting department he just scored 69 runs in
his 11 innings and his highest score is 31. Abdur Rehman will be hoping to improve his stats if he is given chance in the playing eleven.
Saeed Ajmal:
The aggressive right-arm offbreaker started his career late with and Mushtaq Ahmed. In the meanwhile Pakistan tried few spinners but none of them proved to be as good as
Saeed Ajmal. His ability to bowl in the power plays makes him special. His line and length is generally exceptional and can bowl the “doosra”. He will very handy on the pitches that will suit his bowling style.
In his 35 One day Internationals with Pakistan, he has bagged 44 wickets at a very good economy rate of 4.63. Saeed can bat well as he has shown various times. He is a very good player as a tail ender and can smash the ball at unusual places in the ground.
