The wicketkeeper-batsmen scored 7 runs from eight deliveries
Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is unsure about opening the batting in the upcoming matches, after his experiment in the opening match against Karachi Kings failed miserably.
The wicketkeeper-batsmen scored seven runs from eight deliveries before edging the ball behind to the Kings’ keeper.
“Although I opened today, but I will re-evaluate where the team requires me to bat in future matches. Our middle-order also struggled today so I will sit down with the management and prepare the strategy for upcoming matches,” said Sarfaraz in the post-match presentation.
The Quetta captain is hoping for a better show from his batting unit in the upcoming matches.
“Our target was to reach 170-180, but unfortunately we lost early wickets due to which we were unable to make a comeback in the match. I am confident that we will do better as a batting unit in future matches,” he said.
Sarfaraz also revealed the rationale behind opening the bowling with pacers and holding back left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz.
“The target wasn’t much today, so we decided to attack with the fast-bowlers inorder to pick early wickets. Once we have enough runs on the board, I am confident that bowlers will perform better,” he concluded.
