T20 World Cup Want to carry momentum into semifinals: Babar Azam

Confident Pakistan captain Babar Azam, after registering a fifth win in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup, said he would look to continue the same momentum in the semi-final against Australia on November 11.

After registering a massive 72-run win over Scotland on Sunday, skipper Azam said, “We are playing as a unit and everyone has full faith in everyone. The kind of cricket we are playing has boosted our confidence. Has happened.”

Azam scored a half-century of 66 runs while the experienced Shoaib Malik finally scored 189 runs for four wickets in 18 balls with six sixes and a four. I could make it. Mohammad Hafeez also supported Azam at the crucial juncture and contributed 31 runs.

Azam said, “Our plan was to make good use of the powerplay by batting first but we could not do that. But then I partnered with Hafeez and Shoaib. The way Shoaib ended the innings, his experience shows for which he is famous.”

He said of taking on Australia in the semi-finals, “We will try to continue the momentum we are in. Dubai is definitely one of the best stadiums. As a player, when you play in front of an audience that is Cheer for you, it boosts your confidence.”

Malik was adjudged ‘man of the match’, who said, “In previous matches we saw that if we don’t lose early wickets, we have a chance to score big in the end. I am in good form but I have been doing good consistently and helping the team.” Want to help. Feeling fit. We have to do our best (in the semifinals).”

Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer said, “We bowled well in the powerplay today but when there is a batting line-up like Pakistan, they will hit boundaries at some stage or the other. It’s a big opportunity for any team but for an associate member.” It’s very important. Let’s hope we inspire a lot of people in Scotland.”
