The most interesting comments came from Mushtaq, who led Pakistan in the historic series against India in Pakistan in 1977, which they won.
He said that Pakistanís strong point was fast bowlers Shoaib and Mohammad Sami, capable of bowling reverse swing at over 90MPH. On Pakistani wickets reverse swing is important to win matches.
But he warned the Pakistan authorities to avoid preparing slow and turning tracks and instead take the risk of preparing pitches with some grass on them? Why?
Because : "The Indians will come from different batting conditions in Australia where the bounce and pace is consistent. In Pakistan the batting conditions are very different and the ball hardly comes above the knee."
Seems like the Pakistanis will prepare everything before the Indians come and I guess they see the bowlers tipping the balance.
