Former Pakistan all-rounder Intikhab Alam said captain Babar Azam will have his work cut out for him during the upcoming tour of New Zealand.
Pakistan will travel to New Zealand to play three T20 Internationals and two Tests from December 18 to January 7.
However, in addition to being under pressure to lead by example with the bat and score runs, Alam noted that Azam will also have to deliver the right results as captain.
It should be noted that Azam recently replaced Azhar Ali as Test captain and his first assignment will be the Test series against the Black Caps.
“No doubt it will be a great challenge for Babar as the tour of New Zealand is tough and Pakistan have to win the Test series there to make their position strong in the ICC Test Championship,” Alam told Dawn.
