Following the announcement of the schedule of T20 World cup, Babar Azam of Pakistan team warned that it will make a rank this time in world cricket. Azam asserted that he wants his team to make a rank in T20 World Cup, and this time Azam-led team will be in force, he said while warning India and other participating teams.
Azam said, “For Pakistan, the T20 World Cup is like a home event as the UAE has been our venue for more than a decade. We have not only nurtured our talent and developed our side in the UAE but have also beaten the top sides in these conditions to peak to No.1 in the ICC T20I team rankings. All the players are excited, motivated, and enthusiastic, and view this tournament as an opportunity to showcase our powers and re-establish our superiority in the shortest format of the game in conditions that suit us best.” “We will utilize the build-up period by playing in home series against New Zealand and England and will not only aim to fine-tune our final outlook but also win as many matches as possible so that we can carry that winning form and momentum to the United Arab Emirates,” Babar said while talking about Pakistan campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021.
He added, “From a personal point view, this will be my first ICC Major Event as Pakistan captain. I tasted success in 2017 and suffered disappointment in 2019 when we missed out on a semi-final spot by a fraction of a point despite beating both the finalists in league matches. I remain focused in inspiring my side with my performances so that we can become the first Pakistan side to win an ICC Major Event in Asia.”
