Pakistan vs Zimbabwe: Sikandar Raza dreams of defeating Pakistan
“The last time we toured Pakistan we took them to the wire and the last game which was rained off we were on the track of winning it so good performances from me and the team is what I am praying and hoping for,” he said while talking to New Zimbabwe.
“The mood in the camp is fantastic and everyone feels great to be out training and being part of the national team training camp,” he added.
The government of Zimbabwe has confirmed the tour of their cricket team to Pakistan, and the team now has an authorized approval to visit the cricket-loving nation. The tour has been slated for October-November already, but the support from Zimbabwe’s government was pending. As there are no obstacles now, the tour will go ahead in a full-fledge, but there will be no spectators amidst the COVID-19 fears.
