Abbas backs Pakistan to win the title

“I think the Pakistani players have surprised everyone with their performances after a slow start in the tournament. If they retain their momentum they can go on to win the Cup,” former Test captain Zaheer Abbas said.

Zaheer said the batsmen must support the bowlers if they were to win the title.
“Our bowling has been superb so far and is one of the reasons we have made it to the semifinals. But our batsmen need to give more runs for the bowlers to defend against a strong side like South Africa (in the semifinal),” he said.

Zaheer said that although T20 cricket was unpredictable, it’s obvious in the ongoing tournament that teams were learning to cope with the fast nature and pressures of the format.
