The Great Australian side compared to the Talented and Incosistent Pakistan Side
Well since australia won 2-1 in the west indies in 1995 and became the undisputed number one side in the world the haven't looked back, and frankly no team could match them at all. But if u look at the group of players pakistan had during that period the matched australia for talent. For example they opened with Aamair Sohail and Saeed Anwar which on a given day could challenge either the taylor-slater or langer-Hayden openig partnership for ability and runs but not consistency. In the middle was an abundance of top class and talented batsmen with lads such as Ijaz ahmed, saleem malik, inzamam, basit ali, asif mushtaba and youhana, they also had two top class wicket-keepers, Moin Khan and Rashid Latif when in top form where superb. Their Fast bowling attack was led by the two W's Wasim and Waqar with good bak up from Aquib javed, Ata-ur-Rehman and at that time the young exciting Shoaib Akhtar, in the spin department the had two very accomplished spinners in Saqlain Mushtaq & Mushtaq Ahmed while Arshad Khan lent handy backup. While they had the emergence of exciting all-ronders such as Afridi, Razzaq and Mahmood. If Pakistan could have had put unity and consistency together they could have had a powerful unit at that time.
