Srinagar: Pakistan cricket team head coach Azhar Mahmood has made it clear that even skipper Babar Azam can rested against New Zealand as part of rotation policy.

The first match of the series is scheduled for April 18 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

“Our squad is balanced and we have tried to cover every aspect of the game. With the return of Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim, we can use them any time which is an edge,” Azhar said during a press conference.

“On the other hand, the batting line has the best available talent,” he said.

“The date suggests they have a wealth of experience in domestic cricket. They are their best talent and in T20, no team is weak. I listen about B team and other stuff but this is the New Zealand team and they will play against Pakistan,” he added.

About the rotation policy of the senior players, Azhar said that Babar could also sit out.

“It is possible Babar Azam can rest but it will depend on the situation. We will view all aspects while making the decision”.

“Well Shaheen Afridi is completely fit. I have heard this news that he may skip the first two games against New Zealand. But this has come from the media and certainly not from us,” he added.
