Although Pakistan were recently swept away by a domineering performance from England in the 5-match ODI series, the Green Shirts’ exuberant displays with the bat ensured they are well prepared ahead of the World Cup.
Constantly churning out 300+ totals on the board, the often criticized Pakistani batting lineup gave the English bowlers a run for their money. Confident about his team’s newfound aggressive approach to batting, head coach Mickey Arthur has claimed that Pakistan possess the firepower to chase down huge targets.
“Working hard is the key and we're working on our fielding. With the improvement in batting, I'm confident we can chase,” he said in a brief interview.
Pakistan will surely be seeking inspiration from their tremendous batting effort in the 2nd ODI versus England, where they fell just short of chasing the towering 374 target.
