#PakvsWI: Babar Azam Praises Khushdil Shah
Babar Azam who scored 103 runs yesterday during Pakistan’s five wickets victory was all praise for Khushdil Shah. Talking to media after the match the skipper said, “Cricket has changed and we have to play proactively and with planning and intent. The plans were made, and we executed them well. The way Khushdil finished, it was great. The partnerships are important and that is what we wanted to do, to help the finishers end the game.”
On the other hand, Khushdil Shah who scored 41 of 23 balls (with the help of four sixes and one four) said, “My game plan was to take the game deep. No matter what happened, I wanted to give my 100% to the team. The last two years I have been working on my power hitting. Earlier, I used to play on the leg stump, now I am working on my off stump game. In the 10-12 days camps we had, the coaches helped me improve my batting. Not just the power-hitting but also accumulating the singles and doubles. I just wanted to hit the balls in my zone, else accumulate the ones and twos.”
