It has been very tough with no cricket in almost 4 months now.
We are all very excited about England tour
In the covid-19 lockdown, we could focus more on training but no playing.
No saliva rules by ICC will need to be followed.
Hope England take me lightly as a 17-year old which will work to my advantage.
I don't target a batsman because that could mean me just taking one wicket - five-wicket haul is what all bowlers aim for and that could be batsman from any position. Taking wickets and winning is our focus.
Wasim-Waqar pairing was great and now with Shaheen Afridi, a year older than me, we have played together and look forward to bowling together for a long time to come. Very exciting for us and Pakistan.We discuss and share our tactics and that helps us and our team.
I have no experience of England except watching videos of Stuart Broad and James Anderson so I will be very keen to see how West Indies bowlers manage the ball in the Test series before us.
Although England conditions will require to bowl full;er but I always see speed my main weapon and then control of line and length as well.
Listening to former greats through on-line lectures arranged by PCB were very useful.
Playing and performing in all three formats can mean more injuries but my workload will be managed by our bowling coach Waqar Younis and PCB.
Wasim Waqar faced injuries too and were always prepared to fight and make comeback.
Experts say my bowling action puts too much stress on my back and makes me more injury prone compared to Shaheen or Hasnain. I agree with them but this action comes natural to me and I cant compromise too much.
