Meanwhile, Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan has said that his side is gelling well in the ongoing T20 World Cup and they have ticked all the boxes. Rizwan’s remark came after Pakistan defeated Namibia.
“It was difficult to bat initially and conditions proved to be very tricky for both of us (me and Babar). Even when we tried to play normal shots or big hits, it just didn’t work out and then we decided to take it deep and attack at the end. But that said, I want to give the credit to the (Namibia) bowlers because they kept bowling in the same area at the start and bowled really well,” said Rizwan after the game.
“Hafeez’s innings gave us the momentum and he kept telling me to stay patient and in the last over I decided to go hard and got some useful runs. We are gelling well as a team and have ticked all the boxes and will see what lies ahead for us,” he added.
Pakistan creates history on their first ICC T20 World Cup 2021 match where they crushed Virat Kohli led India by a massive 10 wickets victory and broke India’s winning streak over Pakistan in World Cup tournaments.
Out of 5 group matches of ICC T20 WC 2021, Pakistan has won the first four matches played against India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Namibia. Pakistan will face Scotland on November 7 in Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
