We're ready for 2-0 win: Hafeez
Pakistan captain Mohd Hafeez confident of beating India in the second Twenty20 today
Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez sounded confident of winning the second T20 to be played at the Motera stadium today.
“The way we played the last match, our morale is quite high. The way the entire team bounced back in both batting and bowling, that was morale boosting for us. We will try to continue that tomorrow as well,” Hafeez said.
“We have the opportunity to win the series. We are all ready for this. Not just tomorrow’s match, we are positive about the entire series. We are united in this series and we want to play good cricket,” he added.
According to the Pakistan skipper, bowling is their strength as they have a lot of variety in their attack. “India were 70 for no loss and after that we came back.
Bowling has always been our strength and in the last match even after a bad start, the comeback was outstanding. As a captain, I am very pleased with that.
Most of our players — Shahid Afridi, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul, recently included Mohammad Irfan — have proved at the international level that they are match winners. Shoaib Malik is the only one who hasn’t bowled but he is good enough to play his role in any format. We always believe that as a bowling unit, we can come back. We have got enough experience. We can dominate with our bowling,” he said. Hafeez, however, is not worried about Akmal brothers’ (Kamran and Umar) poor show. “Not every player can perform each day. We have faith in them,” he added.
