Test Skipper Azhar Ali is hopeful to observe ‘bio-secure environment’ cricket during England vs West Indies’ first Test on July 18.
While speaking to reporters via teleconference on Saturday, Ali said that it will take some time to adjust with new rules applied while playing cricket for example ‘ban on applying saliva to the ball’.
“We all are curious about how cricket in the ‘bio-secure bubble’ will look. I am pretty sure that West Indies vs England Test series in July will help us know more about the bio-secure environment,” said Azhar Ali.
While talking the cricketer said the Pakistani team will miss the crowd in the grounds, especially Pakistani supporters, who cheer for the players every time.
“We will definitely miss the crowd there but we have to adjust ourselves. I hope fans will enjoy cricket after a long period of time on TV.”
When asked about preparations for the England tour, the captain replied he hopes to lead the side from the front.
“My priority will be to lead my team from the front and give match-winning performances.”
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan cricket team will leave for England tour to play three Tests on June 28.
