Pakistan’s Leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who was only recently cleared to play in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, after improving from a viral infection, trusts that Pakistan will be the side to beat in the upcoming tournament. Cricket fans are waiting for thrilling performances of their favorite players in this year’s tournament. Now you can book Cricket World Cup Final tickets Online.
Shadab was ruled of the Ireland and England tours due to a virus found in his blood during a routine medical check-up. However, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed confirmed the bowler’s fitness a couple of days ago.
“Our team has 100 percent skills to do well in the World Cup. They are struggling, but so are other teams in many ways. They are playing good cricket overall,” he said.
Shadab, who has been his side’s first-choice spinner, said that Pakistan is no different from the other sides participating in the tent event. He did admit to Pakistan’s bowling not being up to the mark but discharged any concerns regarding the same or their recent results against England.
Bowlers are not doing well, they are actually not in the rhythm required, but once they start clicking, we will start winning games. When you are missing your four key players, it becomes increasingly tough. But there is a difference between pressure for a bilateral series and a World Cup.
“Nowadays, you have to take wickets because cricket has become very fast and even 350 isn’t a par score. Yes, we have been struggling with the ball in middle overs, but the way the batsmen are performing, it’s a good sign.”
The 20-year-old, who has taken 47 wickets in 34 one-day internationals at an economy rate of 4.80, has already had the experience of succeeding in a big tournament – Shadab was a part of the Pakistan squad that won the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England.
“Now, I am heading towards the World Cup. Since we are going there regularly from the last three years, it isn’t really difficult to acclimatize with the condition. All I have to do is get in my rhythm. Otherwise, you are mentally prepared for the challenge,” he said.
“I have already played in a competitive tournament – Champions trophy – which we won. Even though we lost a few games, I know how to adapt myself to a big tournament.”
