Babar Azam, Pakistan's captain, is sure that his team would win the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates. Pakistan's campaign will be off on October 24 at the Dubai International Stadium against top competitors India.
The Pakistani captain expressed his joy and pride at being able to represent his country in such a prestigious event. He acknowledged the tournament's strain, particularly against India. Babar Azam, on the other hand, is optimistic about his team's chances at the upcoming World Cup T20 live match.
“I am very happy and proud to go to the T20 World Cup as a captain. We know the pressure and the high intensity of each game, especially the first one. Hopefully, we can win the match and carry the momentum forward.”
“We’ve been playing cricket in UAE for the past 3-4 years and we know the conditions really well. We know how the wicket will behave and the adjustments batters will have to make. On the day who plays the better cricket, wins the match. If you ask me, we will win,” Babar Azam added as stated by the ICC.
In the Pakistani squad, there is a good balance of experience and young. Shoaib Malik, Mohammed Hafeez, and Sarfaraz Ahmed are among the 15-man team. Babar Azam feels that these seasoned players can teach the team a lot. He went on to say that having a combination of experienced and young players is crucial to winning the ICC T20 World Cup for the second time.
“All the players have entered the side after a good domestic performance. We have a lot to learn from the senior players in the side because they have so much experience, they have played the World Cup and leagues before. 7-8 players in our squad have also played the Champions Trophy before which brings out different confidence.”
