Azhar Mehmood, head coach of Pakistan Super League team Islamabad United, says that the brand of cricket Islamabad plays makes it better than others. Make a difference.
While giving an interview to Geo News, Azhar Mehmood said that it is a pleasure that Pakistan is once again hosting a cricket festival in which top players from all over the world are participating. All the teams in the league are their own. Hopefully PSL 8 will have a great cricket festival.
Azhar Mahmood said that he is satisfied with the draft pick of the team, the players who wanted were found in the draft, on paper the team has been formed but the reality is that cricket is not on paper, it is on the ground, playing well on the ground. Yes, the plans that will be made will have to be followed.
He said that I don’t see any weakness in the Islamabad team anywhere, we have match winners, balanced side, confident that we can win the tournament.
Azhar Mehmood said that last year’s campaign was affected due to injuries, this time he has tried to have substitutes available for every player.
He said that the local players of the team are strong and the foreign players are also strong, the bench strength is also quite good, but the important thing is how the plan will be implemented.
The head coach said that there can be a good or bad day in batting or bowling but there will be no compromise on fielding because good fielding can make the difference in a match, a good catch or a good run out can change the whole match, all in the league. The teams are equal and if anything will make a difference it will be good fielding, wish Islamabad United team is a good fielding side.
About Islamabad’s aggressiveness in batting, he said that the team has enough depth in batting, even number 10 can bat, which gives Islamabad the confidence to play aggressively, if If the top order scores well in the power play, the team will be able to put up a big total on the board.
Azhar Mehmood also said that no team is light in PSL this time, any team can beat anyone on any day, there are 4 different venues, there will be different conditions, each team will have a match winner. The players are there, let’s see who plays better on the field.
