Pakistan’s batting coach Mohammad Yousuf believes that the national men’s team has the potential to score 350 runs regularly in ODI cricket. In a video released by the PCB ahead of the three-match ODI series against West Indies, the batting great said it was the perfect platform for Pakistan openers Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman to score big scores.
The three-match ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies is starting in Multan from June 8. Before the same series, Mohammad Yousuf said, “350 is a good score in ODI cricket in modern times and given that our openers plan the innings brilliantly. Ideally we would have to score 70 runs in the first ten overs.” And most of the times our players have done that.”
“We have a good combination in the middle order, like Khushdil Shah, who can rotate the strike while playing big shots,” he added. Yusuf also praised Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Regarding him, the batting coach said, “Babar is a world-class player. He hits boundaries whenever he gets the opportunity and continues to rotate the strike. Rizwan has also done really well in the last few years. He is between the wickets. Running fast always puts the opposing team under pressure.”
