Pakistan barely abstained from passing up a great opportunity for a spot at the 2017 Champions Trophy prior this year, winning arrangement against Zimbabwe (twice) and Sri Lanka to keep afloat Indies in the rankings. Yet, their aloof frame could risk programmed capability for the 2019 World Cup.
“Weight is dependably there in each arrangement and distinctive weights – we had the weight of meeting all requirements for the Champions Trophy when we were playing against Sri Lanka yet then the players reacted extremely well,” Azhar said. “So there is weight and since it’s an unquestionable requirement win diversion, you take that as positive and spotlight on cricket, on the off chance that you utilize every one of your capacities then there is doubtlessly you can do it.”
Taking after the World Cup and Misbah-ul-Haq’s retirement, Azhar was reviewed to the ODI side following a two-year nonappearance to take up the captaincy.

“I scored a great deal of runs when I began as chief, however some of the time you don’t score runs.

Around then 208 looked great and had we taken maybe a couple more wickets then the match could have been to support us.
“When it happens like this we examine everything, clearly it’s a piece of the diversion yet we were harmed in light of the fact that it was in our grasp, so we have to take full favorable position and accomplish the best. The message was that we ought to score the most extreme runs.”
There was some uplifting news for Azhar to ponder on the eve of the match, with the recommendation that Yasir Shah could be accessible again after a knee damage kept him out in Sharjah.
“Yasir, we will see his wellness today, how it goes, ideally he is fit,” he said. “He is feeling better, and we need to evaluate whether he can survive the 50 overs, you can’t make due in a 50-overs diversion half fit, so we need to survey him. We will take a gander at the pitch and after that choose what blend we play.”
