Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has revealed that he has been working on his batting ahead of the Asia Cup, which will be held in the United Arab Emirates.
Sarfraz has been criticised over the past few months for his disappointing performances with the bat.
However, he is confident of turning his fortunes around in the upcoming tournament, where Pakistan will kick things off against Hong Kong on September 16 in Dubai.
“I’m working hard on my batting. Recently whenever I got the opportunity, I have performed,” he was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.
Meanwhile, Sarfraz pointed out that should Pakistan need a back-up wicketkeeper during the Asia Cup, it is likely that Mohammad Rizwan will be called up.
“As far as a reserve wicketkeeper is concerned, we haven’t played a big series [of] four to five Test matches. So, we haven’t picked anyone yet. But, if we need, we have a good back-up available in the shape of Mohammad Rizwan.”
