akistan also have shown flexibility by promoting Shahid Afridi to the openers slot against Australia and the dashing all-rounder will have a role to play if Pakistan are going to do the double this year.
Kamran Akmal is not one to wait for a loose delivery to get going and Pakistan's batting lineup is one of the best in the world with Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf to follow the openers.
The talented Umar Akmal and Rana Naved's hitting down the order means that Pakistan has class as well as depth in the batting.
The bowling attack also has enjoyed the pitches in South Africa and in Saeed Ajmal Pakistan have a bowler who can squeeze the runs from one end.
