T20 World Cup can be organized in a bio-secured environment
The Pakistan cricket team has been in England for more than two months. Babar Azam’s team is about to start the T20 series after successfully completing the three-match Test series in a bio-secured environment. At the moment Babar Azam is realizing next year if the coronavirus situation does not come under control. However, if necessary, the T20 World Cup can be organized in a bio-secured environment.
Is it possible to organize a global tournament with ten to twelve teams? When asked, Babar Azam said, “It is possible. Because we’ve been in the bio-secure environment for about two months. They gave us a hotel that was connected to the stadium and we had no problems. The boys did not receive any complaints from anyone. We have a lot of time to think about cricket, to sit down and talk to each other. ”
As the coronavirus situation is out of control, the ICC wants to host the T20 World Cup in 2022 instead of 2020. In between, there is also T20 World Cup in 2021. Which is to be held in India. Babar said that after more than a year. (Teams) “Can use this time for preparation and planning, can also think about what kind of team to choose on the basis of conditions.”
The T20 series is going to start from today after the three-match Test series against England. Having been in England for almost two months, Pakistan has been able to adapt to the conditions. As a result, Babar Azam is optimistic about winning the series. “After playing red-ball cricket, when we play white-ball cricket, there is less time for practice,” Babar said.
Then it becomes a mental game. The players of the T20 team are practicing in a bio-protected environment. And we (those who played Test series against England) also practiced. White ball cricket needs some change in mentality. I want to play T20 cricket with as much positive attitude as possible.
“I said earlier about winning the series. We have a balanced team for T20. There is Shoaib (owner), there is Hafiz. And if you look at bowling, there are Shaheen (Shah Afridi) and Wahab Riaz. There is also Mohammad Amir, there is Harris Rauf. There is a pretty good mix between seniors and juniors. So I’m hopeful we can win the series. “
Shadab Khan played in the first Test of the series but spent the next two Tests on the bench. He thinks that Shadab Khan of the T20 series will be more effective than Test series. “The way Shadab Khan batted and the way he bowled in the PSL is amazing,” Babar told Cricketer. So our thinking is to use him as much as possible when the situation is like that. If necessary, he may be considered for batting in the top order. ”
