We'll try and maintain the same aggressive attitude against Australia: Hafeez

By Rashmi Nanda -
On Sunday (January 15), after breaking a 12-year winning streak by thrashing Australia in the Australia soil by an impressive six-wicket victory at the MCG, now the Pakistan cricket team is looking forward to taking the hosts in the third ODI on Thursday (January 19) at the WACA. 

Pakistani stand-in captain Mohammad Hafeez laughs quietly at suggestionsthat  his team had complexity coping with pace and bounce.

On Wednesday (January 18), Hafeez told reporters in Perth, "I can only laugh about it. We are very much ready for that. That pace and bounce won't make any difference."

The visitors has throttled and irritated Australia's batting through their spinners during the opening two matches but that potency could be null and void by the WACA's pitch, which has been usually a burial ground for the slower men.

The Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz prompt come out as an enticing choice because of his fondness for magic threatening bounce but Hafeez hinted that the team was possible to remain unchanged, which also means captain Azhar Ali will miss one more game after injuring his hamstring during the opening match in Brisbane.

Hafeez expected that his side could keep on Australia's top-order misery and says, "I don't know about the past but in the last two games our bowlers have done a really great job for us. They took wickets at the right time and they put the opposition under tremendous pressure. We believe we can take three or four wickets early on, which gives you more of a chance to attack.”

He further stated, "That's what our bowlers have done in the last two games and we'll try and maintain the same aggressive attitude."
