Azam was quoted as saying by the ICC, “We have been playing cricket in the UAE for the last three years and are well aware of the situation here.” He said, ‘We know what the wickets will be like and what adjustments the batsman will have to make. Only the team that plays better on the day of the match will win. I think we will win. Since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore, teams have been refusing to tour Pakistan due to security reasons. Pakistan has played most of the cricket in the UAE. Pakistan has never beaten India in an ODI or T20 World Cup but Azam said that was a thing of the past.
“We know the pressure,” he said. Hopefully by winning this match we will create the momentum. Your confidence as a unit matters a lot before the tournament. Our confidence and morale are high. We are not thinking about the past but about the future and preparing for it.
About his team full of young and experienced players, he said, “All the players have done well in domestic cricket. We have a lot to learn from the senior players who have played the World Cup before.
Former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden has been appointed as Pakistan’s batting consultant and former South African pacer Vernon Philander has been appointed as bowling consultant.
Azam said, ‘Hayden and Philander have a lot of experience. We will try to learn from them. Our players are good at learning fast.
