During a press conference prior to the England tour, Misbahul Haq said that the squad for England was announced earlier due to the Covid-19 SOPs. He said that the team’s performance was much better in all the recent series.

Misbahul Haq further said there was improvement in the fielding side of the team. He said a lot of effort is put in to train the players for fielding coming from grassroot level. He said that more improvements will be brought in the overall performance of the team before the World Cup.

Misbahul Haq said that Haris Rauf’s performance was brilliant earlier, however, he is a bit down after the PSL resumed in Abu Dhabi. Hoping for Rauf’s comeback, Misbahul Haq said that every good performer will be considered for the England tour.
