Pakistan’s cricket team captain Shoaib Malik said that Australia have come at the back of a series win in India, so their morale will be high but we have taken a good initiative to check our bench strength and I am sure the conditions in UAE will favour us.
“Look, every series is a tough series so this is another tough series for us,” said Malik at the trophy unveiling ceremony. “They play the game in an aggressive style, so we have to match that aggression,” said Malik, who also led Pakistan between 2007 and 2009. “They are a strong team and have everything from fast bowling to spin, so we have to be at our best.”
“This is a good opportunity for the youngsters to not only make their name but also vie for the available World Cup spots,” said Malik. “The decision to rest the players, who deserved the rest after playing continuous cricket, was unanimous and a wise one”.
The one-day international (ODI) series between Pakistan and Australia will kick off on Friday (today) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
