He said that Pakistani captain Babar Azam and wicketkeeper-batsman Muhammad Rizwan are world-class players. A plan has been prepared against them. Let’s see how the bowlers act on it.
The head coach of the Afghan cricket team said that the mistakes made in the previous match will not be repeated.
He said that there will be a good match against Pakistan, there is a lot of enthusiasm in Sharjah, there are many fans of Afghanistan team in Sharjah, hopefully fans will come to the cricket stadium.
Umar Gul said that he will forget the match that happened in the T20 World Cup and enter the field, focus will be on the new match.
He said that every player should know his role, when I used to play, it was my role to do death overs.
Regarding Pakistani pacer Naseem Shah, Umar Gul said that he has been with Naseem in Quetta Gladiators, he has improved, best wishes are with Naseem Shah.
Umar Gul said that winning and losing is part of the game, I will say to the fans of both countries that they should take the match, we are both neighboring countries and we are Muslim countries, we should support each other.
He said that like the batters, a plan has also been made for the bowlers in the match against Pakistan.
Umar Gul said that Pakistan team is missing Shaheen Afridi, he is an experienced bowler of Pakistan.
He also said that apart from Shaheen Afridi, the bowlers are talented and are bowling fast, but Naseem Shah, Shahnawaz Durmani and Hasnain are still young and it would be premature to call them replacements.
Talking about the drop of catch, he said that being dropped is a part of the game, I was not angry when I was caught dropped on my bowling.
The bowling coach of Afghan cricket team said that Babar Azam is an important player of Pakistan team, batting revolves around him, wish him to score runs, it is not difficult to return to form.
However, he also said that Babar Azam not scoring runs can be good for the Afghanistan team.
