IN THE sixth match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 on Wednesday, February 23 at Mahinda Rajapaksha International Cricket Stadium, Hambantota, Pakistan will take on Kenya in the group ‘A’ match.
The two teams have never played in any of the World Cup tournaments but Pakistan has won five ODI matches against Kenya on other occasions.
In an earlier match, New Zealand vanquished them by 10 wickets just in eight overs. After batting first, Kenya scored only 69 runs in 23.5 overs. Only three Kenyan batsmen were able to score in double figures.
Pakistan, the winner of the World Cup in 1992, prior to the start of world cup,  won one warm-up match against Bangladesh while it lost the other warm-up match against England.
The Pakistani team is the most unpredictable team in the World Cup 2011. However, Pakistan’s road to the quarterfinals is not very difficult because they will have to play against some weaker teams likes Kenya, Zimbabwe and Canada.
The team boasts of a number of talented youngsters as well as experienced players, who have the capacity to destroy any bowling attack as well as any batting line-up.
Given below is the probable Pakistan and Kenya squads for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011:
Pakistan: Shahid Afridi (capt), Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal (wk), Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Abdur Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Tanvir, Ahmed Shehzad.
