    They are not weak in any field but just need to improve thier mental toughness and physical fitness.

    Fielding quite easily IMO, they are an incredibly poor fielding outfield and that includes Kamran Akmal behind the stumps. I don't think they'll have too many problems with their openers in Test cricket (Butt and Malik would be my selections) but in ODI cricket they are just as likely to chuck Afridi or Akmal up the order than to select a proper specialist. Malik is going to be a good captain, so that area looks good. Discipline is pretty vague and relates back to the fielding side of it and how some players seem unwilling to give their best effort.

    How so? They have some pretty good openers in the country although they seem hesitant to pick them. Why do you think that this aspect is Pakistan's biggest weakness?

    haha !!!
    I remember my weakness for sure that was the cheesy and self centered avatar of mine when I started ...
    Anyways for me it gotta be discipline , jealousy towards the main strikers , illiterate captaincy ( pretty much solved now) and physical and mental fitness . Dietary habits of almost all the players bar Shoaib / Asif and Malik are pretty weired and as we have read about that marriage food thing then thats it !!!!

    Because they chop and change their openers every series, show no faith in them and hence never establish a combination. This creates constant undue pressure on them and results in continued failures there. Take your selections for example - Butt and Malik. In the last test series they played, they used Hafeez and Farhat. Hafeez averaged nearly 50 before the South Africa series - dropping him now would be making the same mistake they've made so many times before.

    And your talk of manufactured openers... well what is Malik then? He probably has it in him to become a good opener if he focuses on it, however with the added captaincy pressures and the fact that he still considers himself a genuine allrounder, doing so might not be the best idea.

    Opening is a grave concern at the moment - whether it be talent, coaching, selection or whatever, it's a serious problem. Much more than their fielding which is meh to me.

    I confess I actually forgot about Mohammad Hafeez, mainly due to how dire he is in ODI cricket which Pakistan have been playing a bit of recently. In my ideal side I would have Butt and Hafeez opening with Malik coming in down the order a bit more. I can't help that the selectors chop and change, although I do suppose that this adds to the opening dilemna.
