RAWALPINDI: Former pacer Shoaib Akhtar wants Pakistani players to showcase the late 1990s brand of cricket against England, for which Pakistan was known for, as the whole world would be watching the series and the expectations were high.
Shoaib Akhtar said, in a video, that Pakistan needed to play good cricket by making the right combinations after accessing the situation. “We should not just play to draw the Test series but to win it,” he said.
He said that he needed that type of aggression and that brand of cricket which Pakistan were known for. “I want Pakistan to play sensible innings as the whole world will be watching the series. I have a lot of expectations from Babar Azam and Haider Ali in T20,” he said.
About batting coach Younis Khan, he said Younis was a good man and needed to transfer his attitude to the youngsters. “I want to see Pakistani batsmen playing like Younis. He should transfer his courage, knowledge and experience to the youngsters”.
