Babar Azam, Pakistan’s all-format captain, believes that the national team has a high chance of winning the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates because of their experience with the playing conditions in the country. The forthcoming T20 World Cup, according to Babar, would feel like yet another home event for Pakistan, who have been playing their home cricket in the United Arab Emirates for more than a decade.
Babar stated that the majority of Pakistani players, including himself, have polished their skills in the United Arab Emirates and are at ease while competing in the country. In his opinion, Pakistan would have a substantial advantage over the other teams as a result of this factor.
Babar also expressed his confidence that Pakistan will find the proper combination for their Twenty20 team in the lead-up to the World Cup and that they will be able to address the gaps in the batting order before the commencement of the competition.
“The upcoming Twenty20 International series against New Zealand and England will give the ideal platform for the team management to select the best possible combination as well as for the players to get into a rhythm in preparation for the T20 World Cup,” stated the 26-year-old.
“All of the players are ecstatic, driven, and energetic, and they see this tournament as an opportunity to demonstrate our skill and re-establish our superiority in the shortest version of the game in conditions that are most conducive to our success,” Babar said of the players.
Pakistan will open the campaign with a match against arch-rivals India, which will take place on October 24 in Dubai. It is set to take place on October 26 in Sharjah at 7 p.m. that Pakistan will play its second match against New Zealand. On the 29th of October, Pakistan will face Afghanistan in the second match of the series. On the following day, Pakistan will face the winner of Group A, followed by the winner of Group B on the following day, and so on and so forth.
