Northern’s skipper is looking forward to continuing winning streak


Northern’s skipper Nauman Ali is satisfied with his team’s preparation as they take on Central Punjab (CP) in the final of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2019 from December 27 at National Stadium Karachi (NSK).

While talking to the reporters before the all-important contest, Nauman expressed confidence in his team’s strength which won the last three consecutive matches to qualify for the final.

“We have a strong winning combination and I am really looking forward to planning things accordingly while continuing with the winning combination,” he said.

Nauman, 33, thinks that a gap of almost two weeks won’t affect their game as they have been training for the last six days. “Our plan will remain to play positively. I think the gap in between is an advantage for us as we got more time before the match,” he maintained.

The highest wicket-taker with 52 wickets so far in the tournament, Nauman when asked about his wish to be a part of the national team against Bangladesh, said that his job is to perform and rest depends on the selection.

“My job is to perform well and I am doing that. My performance with the bowl in the last two QeA Trophy seasons has remained on top,” Nauman highlighted. “Selecting me or not is the selection committee’s decision, I am waiting for my time,” he concluded.
