Pakistan closing in on Australia in ODI cricket

In the last year or so, Pakistan has been very consistent in the one-day version of the game. Right from the tri-series they played in Australia last year they have showed immense fighting spirit and team unity. They were horribly inexperienced then, but showed some remarkable fighting guts and were in a winning position in both the finals before losing to Aus in both. There recent record in ODI indicates that they have won 9 out of the last 10 ODIs, and thats damn good.

Pak has a host of genuine all-rounders: Malik, Afridi, Razzq, Akmal and maybe Arafat as well now (who was fast enough to clock 140 k's on a couple occassions and produced that scorching yorker to get rid of Freddie Flintoff). And these all-rounders have been pivotal in most wins. The onus is on Pakistan now to continue playing with professionalism and discipline, and if they can do that then there is no doubt in my mind that they will soon become second only to Australia. Pakistan's future definitely looks bright and hopefully they will continue to be as good. Its great for us Pakistani fans and also great for world cricket to have a good Pakistan team.
