Pakistan’s Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq rates Pakistan’s batting ahead of the Test series against Australia. The former Pakistani captain feels that Pakistan’s batting has the capability to deliver in the hostile conditions of Australia.
"For Asian teams in Australia, it's always difficult. But overall, the best thing for us is that our batting line-up is experienced," Misbah said in Perth. "Our boys who have toured previously scored runs here. Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, and Shan Masood had a good time on the bouncy tracks in South Africa in 2018-19, so looking forward, we have a good mature team. We have got good, young fast bowlers and Yasir Shah was there with us last time. When you have such an ambitious team, you expect good results. The fast bowlers are energetic, and all the players are expected to play well in the conditions."
"It's important for us to take 20 wickets because you can't win without it. I feel our batting line-up is capable enough to put up 400-450 runs on the board, so it will also help our bowlers.". he further added.
The batting has always been the real concern for Pakistan in Australia. In the previous 3 series in Australia, Pakistan’s batting has struggled significantly. But Misbah is quite keen that the results will be different this time around.
