Kandy, Mar 7(ANI): Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has admitted that his team is facing some problems at the top of the batting order which New Zealand will aim to exploit in their World Cup Group A clash in Kandy tomorrow.

Afridi’s team has notched victories against Kenya, Sri Lanka and Canada, but not without a few hiccups, which have mainly come from their top order.

“We did not have good shot selection and I think it’s a very good wake-up call for us for the next game,” Stuff.co.nz quoted Afridi, as saying.

“Myself and coach Waqar Younis will definitely talk to the boys and this will not happen again.”

“We needed some partnerships and that’s what we were missing and that’s what the coach was saying. Partnerships are very important,” he added.

The Kiwis have won two out of their three matches in the tournament so far, but both wins have come against lesser opponents - Kenya and Zimbabwe. (ANI)
