Pak vs Eng: Babar Azam says England, not an easy opponent, Hard to swallow

“Being Pakistan’s captain is an honour for me. I am achieving goals I had set for myself.”

With a fair warning about Pakistan’s opponent England, Babar said that England is not an easy opponent. However, the Pakistan cricket captain Babar Azam has also accepted the fact that the England series will be helpful in the team’s preparation for the World Cup.

The green shirts have reached England to play a T20I and ODI series and will remain in isolation in Derby for the next three days. They start training after that.

Before leaving for Cardiff, the players will train for six days, where the first ODI will be played on July 8.

The skipper Azam said Pakistan’s performance in the previous tours had been good, however, he warned of any complacency.

“The English team will not be an easy opponent on their home ground. This is a good opportunity for World Cup preparation.”

The world’s top ODI batsman said that the middle order is stronger with the inclusion of Haris Sohil and Saud Shakil to the squad. Living in a bio-secure bubble is difficult but we have adjusted ourselves to it now, he said.

“Being Pakistan’s captain is an honor for me. I am achieving goals I had set for myself.”

Azam said the support he got from his fans is encouraging and it gives him confidence.
