Pakistan’s victory in the Oval Test on Independence Day was nothing less than a treat for the nation. The team gave a commendable performance after two back-to-back defeats at Old Trafford and Edgbaston. The inclusion of young players like Sohail Khan and Sami Aslam and the coming back into form of Younis Khan certainly bring victories to the team.

Pakistan has a tough challenge ahead as the team has to play a test series against Australia followed by a series against New Zealand. The players have to be in good form to show consistency in their performance against the quality teams. The weak areas of the team must be worked on. The players should be trained and encouraged to improve their performance. The senior players should take more responsibility in the challenging situation. Good luck Pakistan team.
