Pakistan will look to rest top bowlers in Zimbabwe series


Karachi: Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis revealed that they will look to rest their top bowlers in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe, starting from April 21.

The 49-year-old Waqar said that they will look to manage the workload of the top bowlers and will try bench strength against the Chevrons.

“We are monitoring bowlers’ workload. Players got enough rest after PSL got postponed, so there is no issue of fatigue. We will discuss where and how to give opportunities to our backup bowlers in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe,” Waqar told reporters in a virtual press conference.

On the other hand, Waqar is confident of making a pool of bowlers for upcoming assignments and the T20 World Cup in India later this year.

“We will try out other bowlers as we need to build a bunch of pacers for upcoming series and tournaments including the World T20. Our effort is to prepare the best combination for the coming World Cup,” he added.
