Pakistan have never beaten India in the World Cup. That one statistic carries insurmountable pressure with it.
Pakistan must amplify their bowling strength against Australia and in the upcoming quarter and semi-finals.
Catches win matches, but calling Umar Akmal to take over behind the stumps shows the team is panicking.
Hafeez shouldn't be removed but I'd like to see Saeed Ajmal play in Pakistan's match against Sri Lanka.
There should no weak links in the bowling attack which can be exploited by tougher opponents.
Both Afridi and Ajmal are wicket-taking spinners which is vital for a team aspiring for the top.
