Babar Azam promises better performance in this year’s Test championship


Babar Azam, the 27-year-old Pakistani skipper, has promised that team Pakistan will perform better in this year’s Test championship, as the Green Shirts get ready to take on Bangladesh starting tomorrow (Friday) in Chittagong.

Speaking to the media Thursday, one day before Pakistan and Bangladesh collided in the first Test match at Chittagong, Babar Azam said his team was an impressive one.

He said Pakistan cricket team had many experienced players in the squad, adding that some of the players play spin very well. However, Babar Azam said that the Men in Green will not take Bangladesh lightly, despite defeating them 3-0 in the recent T20 series.

Babar Azam said the team got less time to prepare for Test cricket after the T20 World Cup. However, he said the cricketers are professionals and will have to adjust to Test cricket soon.

“We have been playing white-ball cricket for many months now we have to adapt to red-ball cricket as soon as possible, we have top spinners in the team,” he said.

When asked about his below-par performance during the recently concluded T20 series against Tigers, Babar Azam said it is not necessary for him to perform well in every series. Other team members will also have to step up, he added.

“It is good that other batsmen took responsibility and scored runs,” he said.
