Pakistan to make three changes

JAMSHEDPUR, APRIL 7. Pakistan will make three changes for the third One-day International against India to be played at Jamshedpur on Saturday.

Pakistan, which trails 0-2 in the six-match series, has decided to drop paceman Mohammad Sami, off-spinner Arshad Khan and all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez.

``The three will be replaced by Danish Kaneria, fast bowler Rao Iftikhar Anjum and middle-order batsman Younis Khan,'' Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq said.

The Pakistan skipper said Sami was being rested because of the tough playing conditions while Younis Khan was an automatic selection after he recovered from viral fever that kept him away from the first two games.

Regarding Arshad Khan, who has taken six wickets in two games, Inzamam said the strategy of playing a finger spinner was not working for Pakistan.

``We want someone who can bowl in the middle of the innings. Besides, Danish is a specialist wrist spinner who has the ability to take wickets. We want someone who can not only bowl in the middle of the innings but can also get wickets for us,'' he said.

Kaneria has so far played 10 one-dayers in which he has taken nine wickets at 42.44. — PTI
