Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman is feeling confident ahead of the World Cup given all the practice matches the national team are currently playing.

Pakistan have already faced Kent and Northamptonshire in one-day warm-up matches, and triumphed by 100 runs and eight wickets respectively.

In those matches, Zaman scored 76 and 101 respectively, while he also took two wickets against Kent.

Pakistan will face Leicestershire in a Twenty20 game on Wednesday before going into their limited overs series against England, which will consist of a Twenty20 International and five ODIs, and run from May 5 to 19.

“We adapted well,” Zaman was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council website. “It’s a good thing that our batsmen are all among the runs. Irrespective of the opposition, when you make runs, it’s good for the mindset. Wherever you make runs, you get confidence.

“Making runs, especially in these cold conditions, we’re getting good practice. We come early and get these practice matches to adapt to conditions.”

Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
