Not taking any pressure of the match against the opponent will try to win in all the matches.
He said that in the Asia Cup as a whole team could not perform well but individually and as a team have learned from their mistakes, both the tournaments are completely different so will plan accordingly.
When asked about reaching the semi-finals, Babar Azam said that top four is a small target for us, we want to come back as winners. We didn’t have enough time to camp before the World Cup because we had been playing continuously for too long.
He said that with reference to Naseem Shah, we will definitely miss Naseem Shah because the duo of Shaheen and Naseem gave us a lot of advantage in bowling. It was not easy to choose his replacement. He added that he has the experience of playing in the World Cup.
