The fans will now be able to listen to former Pakistan captain, Inzamam-ul-Haq and his views and analysis for the forthcoming home series against South Africa on the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) digital platforms across social media. Pakistan host the Proteas, after 14 years, for 2 Test matches followed by a 3-match T20I series.
PCB is trying to extend its digital coverage amongst fans and hence has roped in the legendary batsman. Inzamam-ul-Haq, who is Pakistan’s third-highest Test run-scorer, will be doing match previews, analysis during the game, and post-match comments on the digital platforms.
During the matches, Pakistan cricket fans will be fed ball-by-ball scoring at www.pcb.com.pk along with regular match updates at @TheRealPCB_Live. Also, hourly highlights will be posted on all PCB platforms. At the end of the day’s play, apart from the virtual press conferences, highlight packages will be also available on PCB’s YouTube Channel.
“I am pleased to be involved in this historic series, being played in Pakistan for the first time since 2007. I have no doubts this is going to be an exciting and keenly-contested series and, in this background, I am looking forward to sharing my views, analysis, and thoughts with the Pakistan cricket fans through the PCB digital platforms,” said Inzamam-ul-Haq.
Pakistan is a tough side at home: Inzamam-ul-Haq
Inzamam-ul-Haq is confident that the Babar Azam led side will play good cricket despite having recently suffered a 2-0 loss in New Zealand. The former skipper opines that the team is much better in home conditions than they are playing away.
Inzamam-ul-Haq says that there will be several impressive performers in the series against Quinton de Kock’s side which commences on 26th January. The visitors are coming off a thumping victory over Sri Lanka at home and thus the upcoming series promises to be an exciting contest.
“Despite the recent series loss in New Zealand, I still believe Pakistan will be a tough side as its players are used to playing on these surfaces. Whether they will be able to cash in on the advantage of playing in familiar conditions is to be seen, but I have a feeling we will get quality performers from this series,” the 50-year-old further added.
