Spirited Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka tomorrow in the final fixture of the Super-4 of the ACC Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium (DICS). Both sides have already qualified for the final of the tournament which will take place at the same venue on Sunday, 11 September.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka have both remained unbeaten in the Super-4 stage, beating the other two sides Afghanistan and India – who are yet to open their account in this stage. Pakistan defeated arch rivals India by five wickets on Sunday, while held their nerves to beat Afghanistan in yesterday’s encounter by one wicket courtesy two sixes from number 10 batter Naseem Shah in the final over while chasing 130 to win.

Mohammad Yousuf while talking to PCB Digital on the eve of match against Sri Lanka said, “The players are hungry to lift the Asia Cup on Sunday. The players are responding well and they are eager to do well on the field.”

Reflecting on Naseem Shah’s batting heroics, Yousuf said, “I have worked a bit on his batting, he has played a great innings last evening. After Javed Miandad’s six, Naseem sixes will be remembered for a long time.”

On Babar Azam’s form, Yousuf was confident that Babar will score big soon. “See, Babar is a world class player, it happens that you try to play good shots but you get out. Babar is trying and he will start scoring runs soon.”

The batting coach was delighted that the players’ efforts were reflecting on the field. He said, “It is really heartedly to see players are executing the plans well on the field given to them by the management and players’ know their roles in the team. The likes of Asif, Rizwan, Shadab, Nawaz, Naseem, Haris have stepped up and performed when they are required by the team.”
