Star batsman has outlined how visitors are preparing for crucial series against hosts
Pakistan star batsman Babar Azam has given an insight of how the team is preparing for the two-Test series against England, which commences from May 24.
In an interview, Azam revealed that Pakistan are paying special attention to improving their batting and a lot of time is spent on that.
“We are all really working hard to improve our batting,” he said. “All our focus is directed towards being better with the bat and that’s what we are working on nowadays. Lord’s is a place of special significance and we will all try our best to perform for Pakistan.”
Talking about the difficult conditions in England and Ireland, Azam said: “The conditions here are really tough. Rain are quite frequent and there is a lot of grass on the wickets which makes it extremely difficult for visiting sides to perform.”
He, however, thanked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for organising the practice matches and giving time to the players to acclimatise to the surroundings.
He further added that because the conditions favour fast-bowlers as well, the pacers are putting in a lot of hard work, while separate sessions have been arranged for improvement in technique.
