Pakistan’s skipper, Babar Azam has hinted at trying new combinations during the upcoming #PAKvWI T20 series and so, here is a look at what he had to say during a virtual press conference.
Babar Azam Plans To Try New Combinations During The #PAKvWI T20 Series
While expressing the desire to try new combinations during the four match T20 series against the West Indies and while explaining his experience as the team’s captain, skipper Babar Azam said, “A captain has to support his batsmen and bowlers during bad times. I am not under any pressure as captain. I am showing better performances. The players in the side have performed in domestic and PSL matches. Keeping the World Cup in mind we will be trying different combinations. We will also test our pinch-hitting. We have to trust our middle-order batsmen. We have a good track record against West Indies. We will try to play fearless cricket.
“We did not get a lot of chances to try different combinations during the series against England. We will now try different combinations. We will try to learn from our mistakes. We will give confidence to our players. We have also worked on our fielding. Hopefully, we will see better results.
“Sharjeel Khan plays in the top order. If he gets a chance, it will be in the top order. We will have to boost the confidence of all our players including the middle order. The pitch in Barbados offers bounce. The pacers can perform better using this extra bounce. Keeping the spells bowled by Hasan Ali and Shaheen Shah in England in mind, we hope the other bowlers will also perform in similar fashion”.
