Pakistan captain Babar Azam believes that if their opener Fakhar Zaman stays not out until the 20th to 30th overs against England in their upcoming game, there is a good chance of Pakistan putting a big total on the board.
Notably, the Men in Green have a mountain to climb, needing to outscore England by more than 300 runs at the iconic Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Saturday to stay in the semis race, especially with New Zealand already securing a solid spot in the top four.
“If Fakhar Zaman stays till 20-30 overs, we can achieve big scores tomorrow.”
Fakhar Zaman, back in action as Pakistan’s opener, pulled off an epic comeback, smashing 81 against Bangladesh and an unbeaten 126 versus New Zealand in the ongoing tournament. He’s the secret sauce behind Pakistan winning their last two games.
