Pakistan Vs Kenya 6th Match World Cup 2011 23 Feb Live

Shoaib AkhtarKenya will play Pakistani at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Sooriyawewa, Hambantota in the sixth Cricket World Cup game of the tournament. the match will be played on February 23.

Pakistan will be playing in their first game and will be happier to play a side like Kenya first up. After all, it has been playing cricket in New Zealand for a period of almost more than a month and a half and would like to get used to pitches back in the sub-continent.

They did have a couple of warm-up games first up, but they could win only against Bangladesh while going down to England. With Kenya up next, it will make sense for them to feel good about themselves and would be favourites to win the match.

Pakistan will be led by Shahid Afridi who will play a major role with the ball, as would the likes of Abdul Razzaq and Abdur Rehman. The other bowlers in the side are Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul and Wahab Riaz and one gets the sense that it will be a toss-up between these three for two spots.

They may go for the pace of Akhtar for sure given the manner in which the Kenyans had collapsed against Hamish Bennett in the first game.

The batting will depend on the opening pair of Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Hafeez, both of who have shown good form in recent times. But more importantly, the likes of Younis Khan and Misbah ul Haq will need to ensure that they ward off any collapses in the middle order. Afridi and Razzaq could then look to play some aggressive cricket towards the end of the innings to go for the jugular.

Instead, Kenya will strive hard to prevent their previous game collapse from happening. The reason for that is that they scored only 69 in the previous game and collapsed like minnows playing in their first match - something that will hurt their chances greatly.

What the side could look to do is to ensure that they don't lose any wickets in the first 20 overs, and give up on scoring runs even. Over the time once the batsmen get used to the wicket, the run-scoring could become easier as was the case in the previous game between Australia and Zimbabwe.

Batting first will be the best option for both the sides at a ground where the dew hasn't quite been there and that would be how the sides will go.
