When India came to tour Australia everyone thought that India will smash Australia due to their immense batting lineup (Sehwag, Gambhir, Tendulkar, Kohli, Dravid, Laxman, Dhoni) but Australia uncovered that their lineup isnt strong.
A key observation i made during the series is that Australia used a lot of bouncers which got the Indians on their toes. It really messed them up because they are not used bouncers. They either got out playing a bouncer or get out to a bowl after a bouncer was bowled.
That exactly what Shahadat emulated against Pakistan. If we use this strike weapon correctly then we could win this match.
Malinga is the expert of the yorkers lets make Shahadat the expert of the bouncers? He needs to learn to ball deadly bouncers that come straight at the helmet and needs to learn to bowl good bouncers when the batsmen least expects it.
