Experienced member of the Pakistan side Mohammad Hafeez is all set to out perform the English side in upcoming T20s. He is confident that Pakistan will put up a better show the series because they have a well oiled unit in T20s and their track record in recent times shows just that (quotes via Sport 360)
“We have been winning in the Twenty20 format, like we have been winning in Test matches,”
“I believe this team has got more skills in Twenty20 (than ODIs), because we have been playing with each other in this format over the last couple of years. I feel we will put up a better show.”
The professor was glad to see the way team performed in the test matches and he considered that as a special achievement.
“We beat England comprehensively in the Tests and that is something very special for us,”
He added that the tour will be decided on the outcome of the T20 series because both teams have won one series each in this series and that makes the 20 over matches even more important for both sides.
“Now it is the Twenty20s, it is 1-1 in the series so this is the decider.”
Hafeez considers the Dubai stadium as the best one for T20 matches and also because it has hosted the most number of T20 matches.
“It is the best ground for Twenty20s,”
Pakistan have played 17 matches at this venue in Dubai and have won 9 matches in total. Both, England and Pakistan, teams have played 4 matches here and have have shared honors with 2 wins each.
Pakistan will be lead by their explosive all-rounder Shahid Afridi who plays just T20 cricket these days after having retired other formats. He would also be looking to form some sort of a combination before the T20 World Cup in India because Pakistan dont’t have many international T20 matches coming up before the mega event.
