HAMPSHIRE: Pakistan’s team manager for England tour, Intikhab Alam has stated that all the players including Mohammad Amir is eager to put up an impressive show against England.

Talking to Dawn News, Intikhab Alam told that the team is playing three-day matches for preparation during their camp in Hampshire featuring some of the local cricketers as well.

It has been learnt that Mohammad Hafeez is doing good and he batted for 85 runs during the first of the three-day matches. Apart from Hafeez, the experienced duo of Misbah Ul Haq and Younis Khan are also looking decent with the bat.

Rain is disturbing the Men in Green a bit during their practice session, however, players are dedicated and giving that time to the gym.

According to Intikhab Alam, the young left-arm pacer Amir is anxious to make his mark once again and other players are also motivated to face the opposition.

The newly appointed fielding coach Steve Rixon and the bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed is likely to join the troop before they leave to face Somerset in a practice game on June 29.

Pakistan is scheduled to play four-match test series, five-match one day international series and a T20 international on the English shore.

The first test match of the tour will commence from July 14 at Lord’s, the same venue where Amir bowled those two daunting no-balls.
