Abid Ali confident to feature in Sri Lanka Tests

After the World Cup exit, Pakistan is scheduled to host Sri Lanka for a two-match Test series which would be fully or partially played on Pakistan’s home soil. The boys in green will have a lot of questions to answer as the longest format of the game has recently tested them a lot.

Wicket-keeper batsman Abid Ali was one of the unfortunate players to get dropped from the national team for the mega-event. However, he is supremely confident of making his way to the red-ball team of Pakistan. Recently, the 31-year old added that he has worked on his fitness and technical flaws which improved his batting arsenal.

Scoring 6700 runs in 102 first-class games at 38.28, Abid is hopeful to get a chance against Sri Lanka. Imam-ul-Haq’s Test cricket struggles also goes in Abid’s favor as he looks a strong candidate to take up the opening role. The Lahore born further added that he wants to fulfill his dream of playing a Test at home soil and for that, he is working extremely hard. Pakistan’s two-game series against Sri Lanka is likely to take place in October.
