The Batting Dilemma OF pak Batting failure

Mohammad Hafeez was bowled for 55
The batting has never been their strength since many years,as they are the side which often fails to deliver on troublesome pitches.If you critically analyse the main performers of past some years,you can count them on fingure tips as they are just a few names and most of them are bowlers.None of the pakistani batsman has been able to perform consistently since many years which is an alarming aspect of pak cricket side.
The recent world cup losses from NEW ZEALAND and INDIA are the most considerable failures.
Many question could be asked on current pakistani batting squad of ODIs and tests from slection committe specially from the chief selector Mohsin Hassan Khan,tough he is often called rubber-stamp chief selector which is another teasing aspect of
pak cricket.They have been giving chances to same faces like Imran farhat,Taufiq umar,Ahmed Shehzad etc.The exclusion of players like Adnan akmal,Azhar ALi(the consistent performer in tests) ,Danish kaneria and the Mohsin hassan khan's protest against interference form top officials of PCB tells the exact story.The political selections in the teams must have to be stopped if any positives have to been seen in upcoming years.
Now coming to the current ODI series,the issues dont seem to be resolved.In the opening 3 matches,the pakistani spinners kept them quiet and caused their batting order stumble on crucial times.The batting skills of Pak batting order were tested twice in the last matches of series,but they delievred nothing more than despair and disappointment with their irresponsible shots,tough Muhammad Hafeez's performance is some thing to cheer about for pakistani spectators.The weak West Indies side showed great fight with their much inexpericenced side,given their main expericenced players have been jettisoned from the side.
The last ODI was the great opportunity for pak to achieve a great land mark by winning their 400th ODI,thus becoming the 2nd country to mark the history,but they are on the verge of loosing the spree.Its a pity that the captain Shahid afridi has not been able to make any considerable statement neither with bowling nor with batting...The future will ask many questions,if these kind of disappointing performances continued ...
