Talking to the media Mohammad Yousuf said: “Issues with Abid Ali’s and Imran Butt’s batting have been noted in the last few matches, due to which they were not able to score runs. It is being worked on now, not a big issue, they will be able to perform well by improving balance. Both of them understand every little thing of the game.”
