"Our plan was to continue with the Champions Trophy squad, but unfortunately Azhar Ali has a knee problem so we needed one opener at the top. Imam's selection is being questioned just because he is the nephew of Inzamam, but if you see his domestic record, you would see that he deserves a chance, and this is the best time to test him", explained Yousuf. His performance was good in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. Considering Pakistan's fragile and inexperienced batting lineup, one hopes that Pakistan doesn't lose the toss in Dubai; otherwise batting on fifth day may generate the similar results for Pakistan as what was witnessed on October 2. Then he scored two hundreds for the Under-23 team in the triangular tournament in Bangladesh. Even Mickey (Arthur) and Sarfraz (Ahmed) gave (their) opinions.

The other surprise was the omission of opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka, who averages 42.41 in 12 ODIs this year. Fawad is a seasoned campaigner no doubt, he has scored runs in previous seasons. We have been taking Usman Salahuddin and Haris Sohail in the middle order.

"We don't want to use all the energy during the practice session", said the team's captain.
