New Zealand is all set to clash against Pakistan for a 5 T20I Series commencing on 14th April (*Friday). The likes of Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult & Tim Southee won’t be present due to IPL commitments. Babar Azam will be leading the side after taking a break against Afghanistan T20I Series. Azam would be keen to make a statement that he is not done yet.

The Men in Green can’t take New Zealand lightly as they still have the services of James Neesham & Daryl Mitchell who have the knack of playing match-winning knocks for the team. It would be interesting to see how Ish Sodhi fares, he will have to lead the spin attack.

Living in Pakistan is like living in jail – Simon Doull

Simon Doull was having an interaction with Geo News. Simon Doull stated that it was quite a dangerous situation when he criticised Babar Azam during PSL 2023. Simon Doull also pointed out that he was quite grateful to come out of Pakistan.

“Living in Pakistan is like living in jail. I was not allowed to go out as Babar Azam fans were waiting for me. And I stayed without food for many days. Even I was mentally tortured, but by the grace of God, I somehow escaped,” said Simon Doull.

“Rather than putting the team first… the last little while, that’s all that been happening. Rather than looking for boundaries, still, so much firepower to come. Hundreds are brilliant, stats are great, but it has to be team first,” said Simon Doull.
