ISLAMABAD: Former cricketer and Pakistan team batting consultant Zaheer Abbas has said that team Pakistan was working hard in practice sessions for T-20 world cup.
Talking to PTV news, Zaheer said that team was in great form to grab the victory despite being fully aware of the fact that it was included in the tough pool.
“Pakistani team is very balanced and there are certain individuals, who are more than capable of winning matches at their own,” he said.
Zaheer added that players especially batters were aware of the fact that there was no chance of a single mistake as they would be facing strongest contenders in the tournament.
To a question he said that Umer Akmal was in good form and rythem and he will deliver for the team in this tournament as well. “I have spent time with players in the nets during the Asia Cup and I am more than satisfied with their positive response but there is still room for improvement”, said Zaheer.
To another question he said that team Pakistan was in one of the toughest pools. We have to face the likes of arch-rivals India in the very first match of the event and then other heavyweights of the cricketing world but we are better prepared and the momentum has swung in Pakistan’s favour.
Zaheer asserted that batsmen had managed to play full quota of overs in Asia Cup, which is a significant improvement.
