Despite winning the Champions Trophy warm-up match against South Africa on Monday, Pakistan's chief selector Iqbal Qasim has expressed concerns about the team's inconsistent batting line-up

“We won convincingly against South Africa in the warm-up game but I would be lying if I say I don’t have concerns about the batting line-up given our recent performances,” Qasim was quoted as saying by PTI yesterday.

“It is true that our batting might look short of experience but in reality the batting combination being tried out in the lead up matches is pretty experienced. The presence of Imran Farhat, Mohammad Hafeez, Misbah, Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal in the middle order is a big plus for the team,” he said.
