Pakistan’s skipper Sarfraz Ahmed said that staying calm and positive will help them show their dominance on the tour of South Africa starting from December 26.
Sarfraz, while talking to the media before his departure to South Africa from Karachi, said that the boys have been told to not think about past and just to focus on the series against South Africa which is important for them.
“Our plan is to just focus on playing our natural game and try not to repeat our mistakes,” he said.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan cricket team left for South Africa tour in the early hours of December 13 via Dubai.
The fastest bowler to reach 200 Test wickets, Yasir Shah will travel for the all-important series on December 20th because of some family commitments.
Pakistan will kick off the tour with a three-match Test series commencing from December 26th, followed by five ODI series and a three-match T20I series against the Proteas.
The last time Pakistan played South Africa with the red ball in their backyard, the contests were fairly one-sided and they were white-washed in the three-match series.
However, Pakistan became the first Asian team to beat South Africa in an ODI series in their backyard when they defeated them by 2-1 in November 2013.
