Pakistan lost the opening match to India by 76 runs due to the middle order batsmen’s inability to build a partnership. Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq was the highest run scorer of his team. Playing at No. 4, he scored 76 runs. So, it is very natural that the in-form player will asked to promote his position in the batting order for the match against the West Indies. However, the 40-year-old Misbah did not agree to move himself up the order to remedy his side’s batting woes.
Pakistan will take on the West Indies in Christchurch on Saturday. It is the second match for both of them. Both teams lost their opening match. So, it is going to be a crucial match for both the teams.
