A five-match ODI series between Pakistan and New Zealand is currently ongoing. Pakistan has a 2-0 series advantage because of several remarkable performances that worked in the host team’s favor.
Haris Sohail’s shoulder injury caused him to withdraw before starting the start of the first ODI at the Pindi Cricket Stadium, which allowed Iftikhar Ahmed to be called up to the team. The right-handed batter discussed his goals and his batting position with a local news outlet.
“I am prepared to bat at any number and take on whatever role essential to the team’s success. When I play in the middle order, which I do regularly, I occasionally get to bat for two, three, or even five overs. But most importantly, whether I play two or three balls as a professional, I firmly believe to play two or three balls as a professional, I firmly believe that it should always be in the team’s best interest. Currently, this is my only and primary focus, Iftikhar said.
When discussing his comeback, the 32-year-old appears intent on using all of his talents to help the team win.
I won’t call this a comeback as far as returning is concerned. We pursued 365 against Australia in the most recent game we played, in which I participated. Then, despite being a member of the team, I was benched against the West Indies. Therefore, in my opinion, all of this is a dynamic aspect of a cricketer’s life. The player continued, I aim to help the squad succeed and win is to help the team succeed to win, the player continued.
On May 3, Pakistan will play its third one-day international (ODI) against the Kiwis at Karachi’s National Bank Cricket Arena in to an effort to win the series.
