Fakhar Zaman has no complaints against batting No.6 vs New Zealand

Srinagar: Pakistan opening batter Fakhar Zaman hs said that he has no complaints against being asked to bat down the order in T20 series vs New Zealand.

“I don’t view it as a sacrifice. If the team management doesn’t see me fitting into the opening position, it suggests they believe I can contribute to winning matches batting lower in the order. Given the competition for spots in the national team, I consider myself fortunate to secure a place in the playing XI, especially with the impressive performances from players like Babar, Rizwan, and Saim,” Fakhar Zaman said in medi interaction on Tuesday.

“If Babar or Rizwan come at one down, then I can come at two down. I will be happy to play at number six or seven even,” he added.

Rizwan and Saim are likely to start as the opening pair, with Babar following at one-down. Fakhar is expected to take the fourth position.

“You can create a backup for Babar and Rizwan but it is difficult to take their place. Since we have 15 to 20 matches before the World Cup, we can try new players and senior players can be given rest in some matches,” Fakhar said.
