Looking forward for Test series against Australia, says Azhar Ali
PERTH: Pakistan Test skipper Azhar Ali said that Pakistan have the ability to win Test series in Australia as the Men in Green take on the hosts in a two-match series starting from November 21 at Gabba, Brisbane.
While addressing a presser, the Pakistan captain said that he is looking forward for the Test series and is optimistic about Pakistan’s chances against Australia.
“All the guys are very excited and our biggest motivation is that we have never won a series here before, so we are excited because we have a chance of writing our names in history books,” said Azhar.
Azhar Ali was satisfied with the work out his bowling attack got and particularly held 16-year-old rookie pacer Naseem Shah in high regard after the latter’s impressive spell, on the final day of the practice match, despite his mother passing away less than 24 hours earlier.
The 34-year-old also reiterated the importance of scoring runs and getting used to the conditions in Australia.
“Babar Azam’s batting on the first day is a great sign for the Pakistan side and also in second innings, Shan also got important runs,” he said. “In side games such things are important that your players perform and get used to conditions”
