Before leaving for London, Pakistan’s cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmad on Monday (April 22) while addressing a joint press conference along with Head coach Mickey Arthur, said that the team will give its best and play quality cricket during the World Cup.
“We are heading to England with complete preparations and [dedication] to win the [World Cup]. Our players are ready to play their best cricket,” said the captain. Asked about Pakistan’s opening options, Sarfaraz said Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq would be preferred as openers, while the newly selected Abid Ali could be a good choice for No. 3.
Meanwhile head coach Mickey Arthur said “We have worked really hard over the past two years. We are as prepared as we can be [for the World Cup]. We have to bring [out] all our capabilities to produce results in our favour,” the coach said. “Shadab Khan is a wonderful cricketer. As the buzz word nowadays goes, he’s ‘three-dimensional’. He plays a key role for us just outside the power play. However, we have tried to cover [for him] with another wrist spinner Yasir Shah. We are replacing him [Shadab] with like for like.
