Pakistan’s middle-order batsman Asad Shafiq is confident to fill in the gaps for the national team in the batting department when they take on Australia in their first series of the ICC Test Championship next month.
“I know that there are plenty of hopes from me in Test cricket especially after the departure of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan. I always try my best to contribute worthy for my team and I hope to do it again in our upcoming Test series in ICC Test Championship,” Asad said.
Talking about the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the 33-year-old held unbalanced pitches as the culprit for batsmen’s low strike rates in the opening round. Asad believes that a balanced pitch was required to create compelling competition and improve the overall quality of the players involved.
