Azhar Ali names one thing that will help his squad for the series against England

Pakistan Test captain Azhar Ali says he cant wait to watch cricket action resume when hosts England take on West Indies in the first Test on July 8.

During a teleconference with reporters on Saturday, Azhar Ali said that it could take some time to get used to the new rules amid the coronavirus crisis.

“We all are curious about how cricket in the ‘bio-secure bubble’ will look,” said Azhar.

“I am pretty sure that West Indies vs England Test series in July will help us know more about the bio-secure environment,” he added.

The opening batsman also went on to say that the fans will be dearly missed at the venues, especially Pakistani supporters who had always shown their full support.

“We will definitely miss the crowd there but we have to adjust ourselves. I hope fans will enjoy cricket after a long period of time on TV,” he said.

Answering a question about personal preparations for tough England tour, the right-handed batsman expressed hopes to lead the side from the front.

“My priority will be to lead my team from the front and give match-winning performances,” he concluded.

The Pakistan squad left for England on June 28 to play 3 Tests and as many T20Is between August and September.
