Shadab Khan, the skipper of Islamabad United, said on Thursday that his marriage has no bearing on how well he plays.
The star all-rounder expressed his optimism for his team’s ability to recover after being shut out for 90 runs by Lahore while chasing a 201-run mark while speaking to the media in Islamabad ahead of United’s upcoming match against Karachi Kings in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL).
According to Shadab, he anticipates his squad to play aggressive and courageous cricket. By playing this style of cricket, he noted there is always a danger of failing.
He said that if we want the athlete to play without fear of failing, we need to be patient and supportive.
The same brand has produced results for us, but when you are aggressive in your approach, you might lose your wickets as well as suffer such collapses, the captain continued. “We won’t change our brand of cricket; we will stick to what we have been doing and how we’ve been playing,” he said.
Shadab said that his side didn’t play well against Lahore but expressed optimism for a stronger performance against Karachi Kings.
The United captain said that Karachi Kings should not be underestimated despite their present poor performance.
“They have a strong franchise and have a chance to recover. Of course, it’s quite simple to beat a team when they’re having trouble or on a losing run, but we’re not complacent. If we want to defeat them, we must play our best cricket “said he.
Shadab responded to a query by stating that his goal was to record the tournament’s quickest century.
