Simon Doull, the ex-New Zealand seamer, said Pakistan captain Babar Azam needs to stop being afraid to get out when he is batting.
Azam is seen as the backbone of the Pakistan batting line-up as he has repeatedly won games for the men in green single-handedly.
That said, Doull noted that the 28-year-old needs to play his natural game and not worry if he gets dismissed doing so.
“You, at times, are afraid to get out, but you shouldn’t ever be afraid to get out. At some point in your innings, that shows, and that was kind of the gist of my whole chat with him,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Next up for Azam and the Pakistan team will be a tour of Sri Lanka, which will consist of two Test matches that will be held in Galle and Colombo from July 16 to 28.
