Pakistan is set to face Afghanistan on Saturday in Leeds. Sohail made it clear in the pre-match conference that his team won’t be taking anything for granted.
“We won’t be taking Afghanistan lightly,” he said.
The left-handed middle-order batsman stressed that Pakistan’s World Cup mantra is to keep things simple. Afghanistan has a good spin attack and we have seen a lot of videos to try and work out their variations. We will see good cricket hopefully. He added.
“We have kept it very simple. We are taking the World Cup match-by-match,” he said.
On being asked about Afghanistan’s proposal for the betterment of Pakistan cricket Haris said he is not the right person talk about it, the board is responsible for such affairs, we will fight in the ground and try to win.
The rising star showed no negative vibes over being dropped after the first match against West Indies.
“As a sportsman, I believe that whatever is best for the team should happen,” Sohail said. “I was confident that whenever I will get a chance I will give 100 per cent.”
I was in good form when I was batting against Australia. I have a slightly different role for the World Cup, I’m batting at five, but wherever you bat the basics should be simple and based on the requirement of the situation.” He said.
Haris Sohail clearly said he is not taking any pressure to the play the role of Muhammad Yousuf, Younus Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq in the middle order, but will keep things simple as it’s easy for him to play in simple mindset.
