Iftikhar Ahmed Speculates About His Position on the Pakistan Cricket Team

Last Sunday, October 23, at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Pakistan and India played their opening match of the T20 World Cup 2022 tournament. The Men in Blue prevailed by four wickets in an exciting conclusion.

With 15 runs on the board and Pakistan batting first, the Green Shirts lost both of their openers, but Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed put together a 76-run partnership, enabling Pakistan to score 159 runs.

Before losing to India’s right-arm pacer Mohammad Shami, Shan hit 52* runs off 42 balls, while Iftikhar hammered 51 runs off 34 balls, including four maximums and two boundaries.

Iftikhar Ahmed stated that his responsibility in the national setup is to extend the innings. He concentrates on forming partnerships if the team loses early wickets, and when the team needs runs, he turns to hitting.

“Our captain and management have given me the duty to stay on the crease until the end if the team loses wickets early and then go for an attacking game towards the end,” he stated in response to a question during a post-match news conference.

When Misbah-ul-Haq, the former captain of Pakistan, was compared to his batting style, he said, “Misbah bhai is my favourite cricketer. We both worked together for a while, and I constantly follow him.
