Pakistan is the first team to land in the United Kingdom over a month ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019. A perfect opportunity for the Men in Green to acclimatize to the alien conditions, this will afford the squad plenty of time to outsmart other teams.
Pleased with the progress of the team across the practice games played thus far, opening batsman Fakhar Zaman shared his positivity following an explosive performance versus Northamptonshire.
With Pakistan’s traditionally frail batting lineup under the spotlight, Fakhar discarded the doubts and claimed that the players were effectively adapting to the conditions.
“We adapted well. It's a good thing that our batsmen are all among the runs. Irrespective of the opposition, when you make runs, it's good for the mindset,” Fakhar stated after his emphatic century against Northamptonshire.
