In spite of the fact that it is currently unknown whether or not Pakistan will participate in the ICC World Cup this year, Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam is putting all of his attention on performing well in the tournament that will be held in India.
The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is officially underway, and Azam, who is the captain of Peshawar Zalmi, is eager for his team to perform well in the massive competition.
In an interview on Thursday with Geo News, Azam stated that the team’s primary emphasis is on the World Cup, which will be held in India, and that they intend to “put up a good display” during the competition.
As Mohammad Rizwan and I make a nice combination at the top of the order, I will do my best to score runs with him. Having said that, it is impossible to score in each and every innings. Because of this, it is imperative that the team not depend on only two individuals in order to be successful.
“But, we also have some other players in the team who are willing to play a role that helps the club win matches while they’re out on the field.”
“There will always be those who criticise you since it is impossible for everyone to praise what you’re doing. “Since maintaining a positive attitude helps me feel more confident, I make it a point to do so whenever I can,” he explained.
He was also pleased with Zalmi’s performance, who are now in fourth place in the points table in PSL 8 after collecting six points over the course of their first six matches.
“Up to this point, my time spent with Peshawar Zalmi has been rather enjoyable. Because of the errors that we made, we were unable to triumph in a few of the contests that we participated in. Nonetheless, in the matches that are coming up, we will make an effort to do better,” he stated.
Lahore, also hosting the play-offs, will be the location of the closing ceremony and the final match, both of which will take place on March 19.
In addition to taking home the Supernova Trophy, the victor will receive a check for Rs120 million in cash, while the runner-ups will each be given a check for Rs48 million.
