Plsu there are tones of examples of that ...Alex Steward was again one of the most prolific run getter ...Pkaistan it self had Tasleem Arif who has also scored double century against Australia
gilly has only once in his life opened in tests and tht too in an emergency situation. u cannot expect akmal to open the innings and stand behind the stumps all day.
