ISLAMABAD - Pakistan have beaten West Indies in the first One-day International at St Lucia with utmost comfort, as it was completely a different performance from the Pakistani side who bounced back in style after being outplayed by their opponents in the T20 match. This Pakistani display further enhanced their reputation of being the most unpredictable side of the world cricket. They surely can beat any topside but unfortunately they are also known for loosing matches they could have won easily. Pakistani bowling is clearly looking rusty and is desperately in need of their premier fast bowler Umar Gul to spearhead bowling attack. Wahab Riaz and young Junaid Khan have yet to come to the terms. Wahab Riaz is giving too many runs to the captains liking. He must realise he has to fill the boots of Umar Gul and his prime job as attack bowler is to take early wickets in which he has so far failed. Junaid is a bright kid and he has got the potential, which is required at this level to compete with the others but he needs matches under his belt to overcome early nerves. The West Indian players can't keep the momentum despite making reasonable starts by their openers and a superb 67 by Bravo they just throw away their wickets in trying to play big shots. It was not the Pakistani bowlers who restricted the West Indian batting but their batsmen must be blamed for not taking advantage of their good start. They spoiled all the good work done by Bravo and Simmons. West Indies could have easily scored over 250 runs, however, irresponsible batting and poor shots selection restricted them to only 221 runs in their quota of 50 overs irrespective that they lost only six wickets during the process. Saeed Ajmal once again proved his critics wrong and bowled exceptionally well and conceded just 24 runs in 10 overs. Pakistan must have to strengthen its bowling department. Wahab Riaz is by no means an express fast bowler if someone wants to restrict the opposition to a lower score they must have to take early wickets. Wahab has so far been proving himself too costly, as it was clearly witnessed in the first One-dayer as he had given 62 runs in 10 overs. West Indies could have taken advantage of Pakistan's weak bowling had they have got the services of Chris Gayle and Pollard. Pakistani top batting order clicked in this match, M Hafeez, Misbah and Asad Shafiq all made half centuries. M Hafeez has to give consistent performances, it is his duty as an opener to provide the team a solid start in which he at times failed to do so, which resulted in pressure on the batsmen to follow. Asad is performing on regular basis but he too, had to select his shots as he was seen on many occasions gifting his wicket despite playing well. Misbah is the most senior player in the side and has to share extra pressure, but he, too, played casual shots and did not played the sheet anchor role. Afridi has yet to score in three figures since being made the captain of Pakistan cricket team. His rash shots cost Pakistan dearly in a number of matches. He must have to realise that he is the skipper of the side. The team needs his batting. As long as he stays at the crease, the runs will come in bulks. He is one of the cleanest strikers of the cricket ball. The coach and manager are responsible for detecting the flaws of players and removing them, but in Pakistan's case the players repeatedly make same mistakes and no one bothers to streamline them. Waqar was a great fast bowler of his time but he has no previous experience of coaching even of a club side. Pakistan must appoint a seasoned person for this most high profile job. Winning against this under strength WI side by no way will be a great achievement.
