Pakistan batsman Asad Shafiq has admitted that new Test captain Azhar Ali and he himself will have “huge responsibilities” in the upcoming Test series against Australia.
Shafiq noted that he and Azhar will have to lead the way in helping the national team amass big totals, which has been something they have struggled to do as of late.
“Azhar and I are the most experienced batsmen in the Test side, and there are huge responsibilities on us to carry given that Pakistan have struggled to post big totals in recent times. Unfortunately, this is something we are still trying to rectify since Younis and Misbah retired,” Asad was quoted as saying by Dawn. “One only can hope to succeed if everything goes well for you. The good thing is that we will go into the [Australian] series with fair amount of competitive matches since our domestic season is in full swing since the middle of September.”
Pakistan’s two-Test series against Australia will be held from November 21 to December 3.
