Pak dream combo

After watching the first ODI, IMHO that Pak team for the second ODI be as follows in batting order:

Hafeez (very steady bat and can bowl too, I believe he is an opener)
Afridi (Can give Pak a solid start by unsettling the India bowlers)
Younis (In great form)
Inzy (In great form)
Youhana (struggling but an asset nevertheless)
Malik (useful bat, unfortunately his bowling is not an option at present)
Razack (super all rounder)
Kamran (good keeper, useful bat)
Sami (good second fiddle to Shoaib)
Naved (very deceptive, effective seamer)
Shoaib Akthar (he is available and fit)

Sooner or later I think Pak will settle for this line up. Look at the bowling options!! Shoaib, Naved, Sami, Razack, Afridi + Hafeez! (Man, these guys have a heck of a team, at least on paper).
