“Winning the series against South Africa has given us immense confidence. We will try to continue winning in the future. There is more pressure when you face sides like Zimbabwe. The expectations are really high. There are different conditions and oppositions. Zimbabwe have nothing to lose. The host team is comfortable in their own conditions and would be looking for opportunities. A mistake can cost us badly. The conditions here will be different and we expect some extra bounce,” Misbah said.
The head coach believed that the upcoming series was a chance for performing players and youngsters alike to make their mark.
“It is an opportunity for performing players to stamp their authority while it is a chance for youngsters to make their mark. We cannot make all the changes in one go. We have made a rotation policy. People should stop worrying about Shaheen Shah’s workload. We are looking into it and will rest him wherever necessary,” he said.
