Earlier than every other team, Pakistan left for England for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. Before that, the green shirts are lined up to play a solitary T20I followed by 5 ODIs against England which would aid them in getting the familiarity with the conditions before the main event.
While there are many senior cricketers in this line-up but Pakistan would bank heavily on the prowess of the top-order batsman Babar Azam who is sitting optimistic about his team’s prospects in the forthcoming competition.
Before leaving for England, the Lahore born cricketer shared that he prepared for this competition from a long time and is eager to give his best in the 10-team tournament. The 24-year old player truly understands the toughness of the impending challenges but he feels that his team has the audacity and aptitude to counter all the top sides of the cricketing world. Pakistan would start their World Cup campaign against West Indies on May 31.
