The men in Green will be playing the first T20 today at the Shere Bangla Stadium, Dhaka.

We are trying to take the world cup’s momentum into the Bangladesh series, the skipper added.

Talking about team combinations, Babar said, “We are trying to show our bench strength but we won’t tamper with the core. BD has a strong squad and we are not taking them lightly.” Talking about the pitches, he said that he was not worried about the pitches and the team would try to continue with what they’ve been doing.

When asked about the flag which is hosted on the grounds during training, the team’s media manager said, “Saqlain Mushtaq has a philosophy about the flag and the team has been doing this as part of his style ever since he has joined the squad.”

Babar was full of praises for the crowds. He said, “People have been very welcoming and I am hopeful that they will come out and cheer for Pakistan as well.”

Answering a question regarding his personal goals, he said that there was always room for improvement. “I always try to work hard on my fielding and try to adapt to the new conditions, it’s a learning process that never stops,” he added.

“It’s too early to talk for 2022 WC, we will plan and sit with selectors to discuss the philosophy which I have. I am just looking forward to the upcoming series for now,” Babar said while answering a question regarding the 2022 T20 World Cup.

“I am happy with the cohesion of the team and that is a positive sign,” said Pakistan’s skipper, adding that he was content with the team he had and the way the ‘boys’ had been performing.

Babar did not seem to be worried about the pitches, “We’ve practiced and the pitches are not that easy for batters but we will try to keep wickets in hand and try to maximise in the last overs.”

Talking about the recent World Cup campaign, he said that it was heartbreaking to lose the semi-final considering the team’s form and the results in the previous 5 matches.

He said, “But we sat together after the match and are looking to fill the gaps which require filling. I back my players and we are looking forward to carrying on the momentum we have.”
