Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed addresses press conference ahead of Cape Town Test
*ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Test captain Sarfraz Ahmed, has said that his side will play with unchanged batting line including six batsmen, in the second Test match against South Africa at Cape Town on Thursday.*
“It looks like a totally different pitch from yesterday,” said Sarfraz while talking about the pitch during a press conference. The national cricket team captain said that they will go with three fast bowlers and a spinner.
Talking about Pakistan bowling line Sarfraz said that his bowlers are capable enough to control the opposition. Meanwhile, revealing that fast bowler Mohammad Abbas is fit and will play for Pakistan, whereas, Harris Sohail is out of the series due to a knee injury.
On comparison between Abbas and South Africa’s pacer Vernon Philander, Sarfraz was of the view that it is not right to compare Abbas to the veteran Proteas bowler due to the experience gap between the two.
Sarfraz further added that Asian teams face difficulty in South African conditions, however, he added that they are prepared for the second test and will look to equalize the series.
