I agree with you. But i look at it bit different way.
1. We need a solid opening partnership desperately , 'cause we don't want to expose our middle order in first couple of overs. Hannan is more like a grafter and if he religiously tries to stay at the crease then with Rana it's possible to build a decent opening partnership.
2. Kaps should be out of the team without any question. he needs to do justice to his talent by scoring runs consistantly - first in domestic cricket and then international level. Faisal is a remarkably consistant batsman. If he manages to translate his talent to international level then that would pay divident in years to come.
Our batsmen let us down today. With this change i feel we can look forward to a win tomorrow.
