Azhar Ali Talks About Pakistan Preparing for the Return of Cricket

Captain Azhar Ali talks about...

We started the 2019-20 Test programmes with a series in Australia. After some disappointing results we are very happy with the present Test squad the way they performed against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

We are looking forward to resumption of cricket but no one is sure when it will take place. The whole of world cricket is suffering.

We are trying our best to keep ourselves mentally and physically in good shape but with the threat of covid-19 cricketers are unable to get out of their houses and play even in a small group. We are trying to engage our family members for gentle practice but it is not the same.

We would have been playing the Test match with BD right now but .......
If England tour in July-August go ahead, we will need a training camp and trial matches for preparation.

Justin Langer has suggested on resumption we might have to play behind close doors for few months. The cricket Boards, ICC will have to rely on health advice before making any decision.
