The former skipper asked the players to show sportsmen spirit and try not to do anything which harms the country’s image. “When you are representing your country then your each and every step is under consideration,” he said.
The World Cup-winner skipper also shared tipped to Sarfraz Ahmed and men which will help them win matches in the multi-nation tournament. “Just go out on the field with a positive mindset and winning approach,” said Imran.
