Pakistan is under huge pressure after losing the Lord’s test. The retirement of captain Shahid Afridi following their 150-run defeat did not help them in this cause either. Salman Butt, the new captain, is now left with a huge task to carry on, and so with a young inexperienced side.

In the absence of Afridi, Shoaib Malik is going to come in, while there is a possibility off spinner Saeed Ajmal could replace experienced leg spinner Danish Kaneria. Kaneria’s performance was not up to the mark at Lord’s, but he is the most experienced member of the squad with 59 test matches to his credit. Ajmal, on the other hand, is severely inexperienced with only 5 test matches to his name.

Moreover, Kaneria’s leg spin along with Shoaib Malik’s off spin could provide much-needed variety to their spin attack. So, playing Kaneria seems to be more justifiable.

Australia, on the other hand, is worried about two injury problems. Pacer Ben Hilfenhaus and batsman Marcus North are currently racing against time to recover from shoulder injury and illness respectively. However, Ponting indicated that both of them would be fit in time to take part in the match. Pacer Peter George and batsman Usman Khawaja could be their probable replacement, if they fail to get over their physical problems in time.

Overall, Pakistan has an inexperienced batting line up, but their pace attack featuring Umar Gul, Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif is their main hope. Australia has a balanced squad, but their batsmen could face some tough challenges from the Pakistani bowlers.
