Actually their bowling is not bad, Ajmal and Hafeez are extremely talented spinners but you can't expect them to always perform every match. Their batting on the other hand at the moment needs a lot of attention and fixing as it is costing them a lot of games where their bowlers set up a nice total for them to chase, or they just don't score enough for the bowlers to defend (which they try to do decently). Ajmal is single-handedly carrying the team at the moment, with decent support from Hafeez, but the batsmen throw it all away.
