Pakistan's U-19 captain Rohail Nazir talked to media about his team’s preparations before Pakistan’s departure for South Africa to participate in the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup. Rohail said that his team is fully prepared for the upcoming challenge and he is hopeful that Pakistan won’t disappoint its fans.
He also mentioned the fact that his team is somewhat used to the conditions in South Africa as Pakistan’s Under-19 team recently toured the country and performed really well. Pakistan’s U-19 team had a session of rigorous training under Ijaz Ahmed for one month.
The team also gained some useful insights from Pakistan’s former captain Sarfraz Ahmed, head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis. Pakistan will start their world cup campaign against Scotland from 19th January 2020.
