Pakistan team is not much strongest team but it is capable to beat international best cricket team Australia, South Africa, England, India and also Sri Lanka. The team had become an ICC world cup champions in 1992 against England team. It won only one ICC world cup series out of 2 final appearances. It is not fully prepared for 2011 ICC World cup series. This time it is in Group A and will play the cricket against Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Canada. Currently, Australia, Zimbabwe, Canada and Kenya are considered as week teams, so it is not a big challenge for Pakistan to defeat these teams. Batting part of the teams will depend on their openers Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Younus Khan, Misbah Ul Haq and Afridi. Asad Shafiq is also the best batsman of the Pakistani Team, who is included in 15-men squads. Brothers of Akmal, Kamran and Umar will also include strength to their batting. Pakistani team will play in 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup without their key players Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer who were all conditionally suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on charges of spot-fixing. Pakistani team is strong in bowling so World cup responsibility will depend on their bowlers like Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Abdul Razzaq, Sohail Tanvir and Saeed Ajmal. Pakistani team all rounder Shoaib Malik and leg-spinner Danish Kaneria are also removed from the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. Past performance of Pakistani team in ICC world cup is little poor, it won only one time but this time we hope that pakistani players will come back with their dangerous cricket form.
Pakistani Squads: Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Kamran Akmal, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Asad Shafiq, Abdur Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, and Sohail Tanvir.
