Pakistan’s ODI skipper, Azhar Ali claimed during an interview to a local TV channel that Pakistan has a strong bowling as well as a strong batting line up.
“We have good pacers and spinners in the team who are capable of taking 20 wickets in the Test matches. Batting too is very strong and our batsmen not only can post good totals on the board but also able to chase decent totals. We want to earn top position in Test rankings and soon we will achieve it,” said Azhar Ali.
Pakistan is currently ranked at no. 9 in ODI ranking, which is embarrassing and the Men in Green want to improve their ranking by any means.
Azhar stated, “I want my team to play ODI series well and perform extraordinary to improve our ODI ranking. Although the ODI series against England will be tough one, yet we will try to perform well and win the series.”
The 31-year old further said that players that are being unable to perform and are dropped from the side need to improve their performance and look to make a comeback instead of looking for a soft corner.
He said, “Instead of looking for soft corner, the players should accept the poor results, focus on their game and bring betterment in their as well as the team’s performance.”
