Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has revealed that he is brimming with confidence ahead of his side’s World Cup clash against South Africa at Lord’s on Sunday.
Pakistan were given two days off after their loss to arch-rivals India, but Sarfraz noted that the men in green have been practicing hard for three days and morale within the team is really high.
The match against the Proteas is a pivotal one for Pakistan as if they don’t come out on top, their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup semi-finals will virtually be over.
“Definitely it [was] a tough thing for us, but after the match, we [were] given two days rest,” Sarfraz was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “But [the past] three days, we [have been] practicing hard, so morale is very high for us. The tournament is now open, so we have a chance. We are focusing match by match, so hopefully we will win tomorrow’s match.”
