Pakistan vs UAE
The sixth match of the Micromax Asia Cup will be played against the two bottom teams of the group who still haven’t opened their account Pakistan and UAE. Pakistan have lost their match against arch rivals India and UAE have lost their matches against Bangladesh and UAE so a victory for any of the team will give a big boost. Pakistan is currently at 4th spot while UAE is at 5th spot in the points table.
Coming toward the Pakistani side the way they batted against India it was really shameful. Their batsmen just threw their wickets to part timers and none of their batsmen played sensibly to complete the 20 overs. It was looking as they were in a sort of hurry to get out. Pakistani batsmen have to play responsibly otherwise they have no chance of qualifying for the finals. Pakistan is playing with 2 new openers who both are making a comeback after a lot of time so it will be difficult for both of them to get set and play up to the Mark. Pakistani experience players have disappointed the most Hafeez, Umar Malik, Afridi all played irresponsibly and got out on very easy deliveries which was the reason of their defeat. The only thing after their first match defeat was their bowling. Their pace battery bowled from their heart and the way Muhammad Amir bowled in the first match it was sensational he was bowling at a pace of 150 KM/H and also other pacers Muhammad Irfan and Muhammad Sami bowled superbly well and that thing is really praising. Pakistani batsmen if somehow managed to score 150 runs on such bouncy tracks their bowlers have ability to turn the match and to get victory. Pakistan surely have to work on their batting and they need to get Anwar Ali and Muhammad Nawaz back as on such pitches Anwar Ali can be really handy for them.
oming toward the UAE team they have lost their first 2 matches but their performance wasn’t as much as they restricted the 2 top teams of this format below 140 and bowled from their heart. Their bowlers showed their class and they were not as bad as some were expecting. UAE biggest problem is their batting as their batsmen couldn’t chased the small target and got out by playing some rash shots. Their senior and experienced players like Shaiman Anwar have to take responsibility and have to play sensibly and if they continue to do so they surely can beat any top team of the tournament as they have ability to play like that. But now their match is against the big boys of the tournament who have some really classy fast bowlers who can turn the match at any time so if they continued to survive against their bowlers they surely have a chance to make an upset in the tournament.
Match will be on that bowling track so captain who will win the toss surely go for the bowl and try to restrict the opposition up to a low total.
