While opening up on the upcoming series Waqar said, “We shouldn’t say this but Zimbabwe will be a comparatively weaker opponent. This is the perfect time to test our youth. Misbah-ul-Haq also believes that youngsters should be tested. Right now we have Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain and Haris Rauf who are new to the side. If a player performs well during the ongoing National T20 Cup then he will surely be given a chance as well. We are all looking at the performances of the players. The Zimbabwe series would be an excellent platform for youngsters. Playing a home series and performing well is the dream of every player.”
