Goal is to form a strong team for 2023 World Cup: Misbah-ul-Haq
Misbah-ul-Haq, head coach and chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team, said that the priority at the moment is to win, to qualify for the World Cup, and to form a strong combination for the mega event.
The Pakistan cricket team last played an ODI match against Sri Lanka in Karachi in October last year and will now play an ODI match against Zimbabwe on October 30, thus giving the Pakistan team more than a year to play an ODI match.
In such a situation, Babar Azam also took over the captaincy of ODIs. Although he has not captained in any ODI match so far, he will captain in the first match against Zimbabwe.
Pakistan cricket team head coach, chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq says that they will play in a positive manner in the series against Zimbabwe.
“This is a good opportunity for the new captain, the team will also benefit from playing and winning in their own country to increase confidence and with this series we have to start preparing for the future,” he said.
The head coach of the national team said that victory is always important for the team, even if it is against any rival team and a balanced and strong team will be fielded for this victory.
