Lahore: In T20 cricket, Babar Azam’s dot balls started hitting Wasim Akram.
The former captain says that the batsmen have to adapt themselves to modern requirements while constantly learning, the coach cannot go on the field and tell about the situation of the match, the player has to learn and perform with his intelligence, PSL Talking to media, Wasim Akram said that Pakistani cricketers need to improve their game to be in tune with the requirements of T20 cricket.
They should learn from the successful batsmen of the world how they are performing their innings as expected. We have in-form batsmen like Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan but the captain has to dot the ball in the first 6 overs. The rate needs to be reduced, in the presence of so much T20 cricket, the batsmen have to constantly learn and improve to adapt to the modern requirements. The former captain said that batting does not mean hitting sixes on every ball. The right strokes need to be chosen keeping in mind the situation, the opposing team and the bowler.
No coach can go on the field and tell you about the situation of the match, the player has to learn and perform with his intelligence. Wasim Akram said that 6 seasons of PSL have passed but are you one of the emerging batsmen? Haider Ali has emerged from the emerging category but his performance has not been consistent. Mohammad Hafeez is 40 years old. The all-rounder is physically very fit and part of the team. I am happy that he is playing well. However, his current form is not good, if there was a replacement for Hafeez, he would have taken his place, but it does not look like that yet.
