HARARE: Azhar Ali believes that too many changes in Test cricket are not ideal due to the limited window for the longer format in the year.
Speaking to reporters via online presser, Azhar said players need some time to adjust in Test cricket and regular changes wouldn’t favor building a team. “See, Test cricket is played very limited in a year so it is impossible to make regular changes,” he said.
“I have played 87 Tests in 11 years and only 91 Test were played during that time. Average 8 Tests are played everywhere so how can we make so many changes. It will cause hurdles in building a team with making regular changes,” he stressed.
Talking about Day 1 of the second Test against Zimbabwe, Azhar said the last few overs were not good for them otherwise they dominated the whole day. “If you look at our performance, we were well set on the track. Unfortunately, in the last eight overs, we lost quick wickets as the ball was coming slowly during that time. We will try to post a big total tomorrow and restrict them earlier,” he concluded.
