‘Kookaburra in domestic cricket will make players competent’ Asad Shafiq


Pakistan’s Test batsman Asad Shafiq believes that using Kookaburra ball in domestic cricket will help national team players compete strongly in the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Test Championship fixture against Australia.

“It was a good step by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to introduce Kookaburra ball in domestic cricket. Players got aware of Kookaburra which will surely help them compete strongly when the national team tours Australia next month to play a Test series,” Shafiq highlighted while talking to the media at UBL Sports Complex (UBL).

The right-handed middle-order batsman, who is leading Sindh in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season 2019-20, is confident to win the match this time around as the first-class tournament is all set to enter fourth round from October 5.

“In the last match, we were in a good position to win the match but unfortunately bad weather abandoned that contest. Our aim remains to win the match and we will try our best to achieve strong results,

“Southern Punjab is a potent opponent and we need to remain strong against them. They have a competitive batting line with the likes of Shan Masood and Sami Aslam,” he concluded.

It is pertinent to mention here that Sindh stands on the second spot at the points table with 30 points after three rounds. All of their three matches got drawn.
