Pakistan cricket team’s captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was in an interview with Zainab while he disclosed his batting order. He was little upset about losing a warm-up match against Afghanistan and said they need improvements. All the six ODI’s they lost previously, they were close matches he said.
About his batting position, he said he would be batting at 5th number. We know he has a good history at playing on number 4th. When Zainab raised a question about why he is not hitting at number 4th, he replied that the Pakistani team has many batsmen now. Furthermore, he said batting orders is up to the 7th number that is why this decision was difficult for him.
Testing players in Warm-up matches
Sarfaraz Ahmed said he was testing many players in the warm-up match and we have 7,8 excellent batsman. That’s good news for Pakistan because mostly Pakistan loses because of the batting side. Bowling attack is very good. With Muhammad Amir coming and Wahab, Riaz Hope is up for a good spell. About Wahab Riaz, he particularly said that it’s good to see him back in the team, and he is hoping that Wahab will perform well. Sarfaraz has always been a good captain and showed some excellent results in the past. He is an aggressive and passionate guy behind the wicket, continuously transferring energy in the team. He tries to put pressure on the batsman by shouting at bowler and fielders. Overall he has done a good job as a captain, and he needs improvements as well.
