Without a shadow of doubt, batting is not considered Pakistan’s strongest suit from the last few years. The emergence of the prolific batsman Babar Azam has given the country a lot of hope. However, they would need a continued and sustained supply of quality batting talent to compete at the top level against sturdy units.
Recently, former Pakistan opening batsman Aamer Sohail became a part of this debate by showing concerns over the batting future of the boys in green. He also highlighted the recall of veterans Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik to the national side in the T20I tri-series against Bangladesh to provide strength to his point.
Moreover, he advised the inclusion of more local batting talent in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) – a platform which would allow young guns to rub shoulders against the best players of the game. Hence, the cricketer turned analyst urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to look at this aspect of the national team and prepare accordingly.
