Your top order will play good both in grassy/bouncy and flat/low slow pitches; at lower order Raina and Pollard bit of worry in grass pitches but proven performer in flat tracks. Morne and Tait will be under pressure and might take some wickets with sheer pace or might go for runs in some matches but Ajmal and Razzak are there to pull it back (Razzak might go for runs in some matches as well);
Fifth bowler option is Pollard but if Pollard goes for runs then there is Raina as no other option- Raina might go for some runs as well. FIfth bowler is a bit of worry. But you have huge batting strength to chase a big total down.
