Pakistan Cricket Board today announced their squads for T20Is and ODIs to be played in the West Indies this month. Veteran all-rounder Shahid Afridi and busy middle order batsman Umar Akmal have been recalled to the Pakistani team.
After a sensational tie, the winner of the contest in the 2nd T20I was decided through the Super Over. Pakistan defeated Australia in the Super Over through an exciting last ball finish chasing down the target of 12 from 6 balls.
The selection of the Pakistan team for the three-match ODI series against Australia hasn’t thrown a lot of surprises. Yes, this holds true in spite of the fact that Younis Khan and Umar Gul, two seniormost members of the team, have been axed.
Pakistan have made as many as five changes to their ODI Squad which will play against Australia in a 3-match series starting this month end in the UAE. Younis Khan, who struggled to get going in the ODI Series in Sri Lanka has been axed while fast bowler Umar Gul surprisingly has been omitted.
Wayamba United led by Mahela Jayawardene opened its SLPL campaign with a thumping 9-wicket win over Uthura Rudras led by Jehan Mubarak on Sunday. Wayamba seem to be the most powerful side in the SLP especially in the batting department.
