Azam said, “Both of us decided that it was vital to stay on the crease for long.”

“I told Fawad Alam that we will have to strike a long-term partnership to steer the team out of trouble.”

“So we set out targets session after the session while eyeing to score 300 to 350 runs in the first innings,” he added.

Azam stated that he was working hard to improve his performance in the game’s long format. He was overjoyed that his hard work was bearing fruit.
