Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has reinforced his side’s chances for the upcoming World Cup which will be played in England. Sarfraz believes that the side does indeed have a good side and a blend of seniors and youngsters in the side. With the likes of Shoaib Malik and Haris Sohail, the Pakistanis also boast of the likes of Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan who have been impressive in recent times.
“We have a good blend of seniors and youngsters in the squad who are performing well. We are trying to rely on the same group of players for the World Cup,” he said.
“We have fine young players such as Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan and Babar Azam and now with Haris Sohail in the team plus the experienced Shoaib Malik, we will try to rely on them in the lead-up to the World Cup,” Sarfraz said.
Decent preparation for Zimbabwe tour
Shedding light on the upcoming Zimbabwe tour, Sarfraz said that the squad is indeed ready to face up to the might of Australia as well in the upcoming tri-nation series.“We are going to Zimbabwe after decent preparations with this short camp here in Lahore. We will have three more days to prepare in Zimbabwe before the tri-series begins. Insha’Allah we are pretty confident of coming back victorious,” Sarfraz added.
He also added that the team spirit was indeed something that the Pakistan team management has worked hard to build. He added that the side has been performing quite well in recent times as well. “But in our case, the team is performing extremely well in both bowling and batting. We will use the better option in case of winning the toss,” he said.
