DUBAI: Pakistan’s new batting sensation Fakhar Zaman wants to continue with the top performance that he showed at the ICC Champions Trophy in London.
“Definitely, I want to continue with that performance”, the young ODI opener added, “It is in my mind to perform well for Pakistan’s victories.”
Fakhar mentioned that he is returning to international cricket after a long break but he has been playing domestic cricket in Pakistan.
The Pakistan cricket team will face Sri Lanka in their first international cricket one day match after almost 4 months since the final of Champions Trophy in London that was played in June earlier this year.
The Man of the Match of that final in London; Fakhar Zaman believes that he is now more confident after scoring a century in the final and hopes that he will continue with that performance.
Fakhar said that senior players especially Azhar Ali, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez always guided him.
“The captain Sarfraz Ahmed also supported me to let me play my neutral game,” he added.
The left-handed opener Fakhar was a part of the Lahore Qalandars side during the 2nd edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) where the former skipper of New Zealand Brendon McCullum led the franchise and appreciated the batting skills of Fakhar Zaman.
“It was an honour for me whenever McCullum used to praise my technique during practice and matches,” said Fakhar.
Fakhar says the confidence he gained from playing with McCullum in the Lahore Qalandars side during the Pakistan Super League earlier this year has helped him to hasten his progression.
