  1. First of all M Irfan cannot be compared with Wasim Akram’s class and secondly our middle order or should i say the entire batting line up is much weaker compared to 1992’s. In 1992 we had the likes of Miandad, Saleem Malik, Ijaz Ahmed, Imran Khan. This time our batting sucks seriously and the bowling is not that good too.
