Pakistan will perceive themselves as the loved in this series and will feel themselves in the dynamic seat because under motivational and authoritative leader Misbah-ul-haq, Pakistan has performed exceptionally well since ending 20 months or so. As they are still undefeated in any of the series from late 2010, so hopes and spirits are very advanced for the domestic side and they will try their level best to continue their success streak. Complimentary playing conditions will also play a essential part for the success of the Asian squad.

As Pakistani guns which permit Umer Gul, Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez are performing real well in the Asian surroundings. And this consideration will go against the men in blue because they are not use to play in difficult conditions and striking and scorching weather which will come into the informing when the both teams will arrive in arena of desserts.
