Azhar concluded that hitters and bowlers initially struggled due to the COVID-19 pandemic that caused a long break from cricket, but are now returning to their own pace.
“The hitters are in good shape, their balance is excellent in the nets and in the practice games we play. At the beginning of the tour, we felt rust among the players, especially the bowlers, but they are gradually improving their pace and workload. “
It should be noted here that Pakistan and England will play three tests against England in a bio-secure environment. The test series will be followed by the T20Is series consisting of the highest number of matches.
