Champions Trophy 2017

Tough competition to warm the bench

Pakistan team is on a roll after their historical win against Arch-Rivals India. They are confident, passionate and dedicated since they played against South Africa. There has been some tough decisions taken to book their places in playing XI.

The team is on their peak when their bench is much more stronger than the actual team. This is the unfortunate case happening with Pakistan. We can’t neglect anyone’s selection on one-match basis but for the first time this kind of competition is arising between Pakistani players.

Each and every player warming the bench is capable of replacing anyone. When we talk about batting in this champions trophy squad with the likes of Haris Sohail and Ahmed Shehzad has to sit out because Hafeez, Azhar and Fakhar isn’t giving them a single chance to overcome them.

When we talk about the versatility in the players the main player which leads the way is all rounders and its very good to see how Shadab, Imad and Fahim are fighting for their spot. Shadab isn’t letting Fahim into the XI with his tremendous performance and same is the case with Imad.

Bowling depth is strong from the start. As we can see Junaid, Amir and Hassan producing some outraged spells but on the other hand bowlers like Rumman have to sit out and wait for some injuries and other technical problems to get in to there.

I must say this has been seen very unusual and I can hope this is the best thing about a new team. Well we hope that Pakistan keep their momentum high in World cup 2019.
