Pakistan’s first three batsmen in batting order are Khurram Manzoor, Imran Farhat and Fawad Alam. Bet you’ve been following their careers all your life. Khurram and Fawad have played 9 tests between them, both made their debut this summer.
Imran Farhat has played 28 tests across 8 years. After Afridi, he’s the first proper T20 batsman to play test cricket.
In 6 test innings in the Dunedin test, these three batsmen had a bumper harvest of 67 runs between them.
In the absence of Younis Khan, none of the so called seniors cared to bat up the order. Instead they were scattered all over the place, waiting for the older ball.
Captain MoYo at four. Former captain Malik at six after that nineteen year old kid on debut, Umar Akmal.
Wait and watch, if Mohammad Aamer shows any more promise as a batsman, he could be earn himself a double promotion.
In the meantime, MoYo will lead from the middle.
