After having a reasonably better outing against Australia in the T20I series with the bat, Iftikhar Ahmed is now looking to take on the hosts in the Test series down under. He’s been named in the squad for the longest format of the game as well by the chief selector and the head coach Misbah-ul-Haq.
Iftikhar was spotted playing in the nets ahead of the Test series against Australia and his batting style and stance looked quite similar to his mentor and coach Misbah-ul-Haq.
Misbah-ul-Haq has been an ardent supporter of Iftikhar Ahmed and the explosive batsman from Peshawar also made his Test debut under the captaincy of Misbah-ul-Haq against England at the Oval in 2016. Iftikhar looked a promising prospect in the T20I series and he’s gearing up for the bigger test ahead.
