Ahmed in favor of Pakistan fielding Shadab and Shah together

Ahmed in favor of Pakistan fielding Shadab and Shah together

Twenty20 World Cup star, Carlos Brathwaite, has been dropped from the West Indies one-day global (ODI) squad to face Pakistan in a three-match series, which bowls off Friday in Guyana. "In one-day cricket if we have leg-spinners who could take wickets in the middle overs, it will be a huge advantage for us".

The talented leggie Shahdab Khan has succeeded in securing his place in the Test team as he is expected to debut along with the relevantly experienced 30-year-old Yasir Shah. The tally includes 63 wickets in 10 test matches in the United Arab Emirates, which has been Pakistan's "home" venue after foreign teams refused to tour Pakistan because of security reasons since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team bus.

In March, the PCB had announced that Misbah would lead the team during the WI Test series amid severe criticism from media following a whitewash in the Australia and New Zealand series.

India held on to the number four position in the latest ICC ODI rankings despite not playing the 50-over format for more than two months.

With the ODI series bearing a lot of importance to West Indies' hopes of gaining automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup, Law admitted that his side have to be a lot more consistent than they were in the Twenty20 series.

"I haven't spoken to Misbah-ul-Haq yet but it is understood that the West Indies tour would be Misbah's last series of his Test career", he said. "He knows whether he has the form, fitness and hunger for cricket to carry on or step down", Misbah said in a recent interview. (Sunil) Narine might be the only one (at a high standard), but if you are not surrounded by players who know what they are doing, you will find that you struggle a bit.” Davis said all the West Indies bowlers struggled to find a consistent line and length, even Narine.

West Indies are scheduled to play Pakistan in an ODI series followed by Tests, which coincides with the IPL.
