Pakistan Beats Australia In Last ODI

Pakistan has just beaten Australia in the last out of the 5 ODI series, out of which Pakistan won 2 [including this one] and Australia won 3. Although the win didn't effect the series but it showed once again that if Pakistan wants it can beat any team in the world, but all we have to do is try! Anyway back to the match, Kamran Akmal [Pakistani wicket keeper] scored 116 to make his team win. He went as the 4th batsman, but i still can't figure out why he isn't opening with Salman Butt? He is a terrific batsman and when he opened, him and Salman Butt used to do wonders. On the scorecard; The openers [Salman Butt and Ahmed Shehzad] did barely anything as Salman got out in the first over and Shehzad only scored 19 runs off of 52 balls [for a opener for ODI that's bad], Our captain Younis Khan came and smashed the aussies with 27 runs off of 37 balls but took a stupid shot a got out with a catch. Then came the game savers Misbah-Ul-Haq [76 runs] and Kamran Akmal [116 runs] who killed the aussies with their terrific batting and partnership. Pakistan won this match but has to be smarter with it's batting lineup [clue: CHANGE THE DAMN OPENERS]. Our bowling was not that bad with Shahid Afridi doing his thing [only gave away 36 runs from 10 overs]. Pakistan should mix the mistakes they made and get ready for their upcoming Twenty 20 match with Australia and get prepared for the T20 World Cup [this june].
