- Inzamam says hitters gain confidence when they score.
- Encourage the men in green to play positive cricket.
- Said Pakistan’s bowling attack is better than any of the Asian Cup 2022 teams.
Former Pakistani striker Inzamamul Haq advised captain Babar Azam and striker Fakhar Zaman to enter the pitch to score more instead of staying on the pitch for a long time.
To hit remains a source of concern for Pakistan, with Babar managing a tournament with only the top 30.
Inzamam said he hopes for Pakistan victory in the 2022 Asian Cup final against unbeaten Sri Lanka scheduled for today (Sunday) at 7pm.
“Pakistan’s fight against Sri Lanka was not visible in the Super 4 game between the two teams, but today we will celebrate the victory of the Men in Green inchallah,” he said.
The former cricketer said he would suggest the Pakistani team to play positive cricket.
“Battters always gain confidence when they score, not by standing at the wicket,” Inzamam said, encouraging Pakistani batters to attack Sri Lankan bowlers.
‘Pakistan bowling is better than any Asian Cup team’
He said the men in green are good in this game and the game of the opposing team is not good enough to prevent Pakistan from scoring.
“Our bowling is better than any of the teams participating in the 2022 Asian Cup,” Inzamam said, adding that Pakistan are in a position to restrain Sri Lanka in the second set if the first score 170-175 in choosing to strike first.
Sri Lanka set for unlikely Asian Cup win over favorites Pakistan in today’s final after a tournament-long killing streak despite home problems.
Friday’s Super Four closing game was a general repetition for the Dubai final – and Sri Lanka’s fourth straight victory, although Pakistan are missing two of their key players.
Both players, Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah, will extend Sri Lanka’s chances when they return for the final.
Pakistan, despite their own home troubles, shone throughout the tournament, a curtain-raiser for next month’s T20 World Cup in Australia, avenging an opening game loss to India and securing a final Afghanistan thriller.
Their latest loss to Sri Lanka may have dampened their momentum, but head coach Saqlain Mushtaq said the team will take lessons from Friday’s game into consideration.
