We are trying to play ‘modern-day cricket’ for the upcoming event. We will try to gain the necessary points through the series against South Africa. We will start strong. If our finishers fire, we can reach a total above 300.

“It is all about the momentum and we are working on our power-hitting. The players are learning. It is also about taking responsibility. Contributions from the top four are always vital. We will also have to rotate the strike. Fakhar Zaman, Imamul Haq and Mohammad Rizwan are in great form and we will see the difference.

“We will try to play fearless cricket. We will try certain combinations for longer which will bear results. Our bowling has the ability to restrict any side below 300. Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan bring results through their exciting batting. The coaches are working hard towards improving strike rates.”
