Alam confident Pakistan to come back against Kiwis


Pakistan’s cricket team tour manager, Intikhab Alam on Wednesday expressed his disappointment after the second one-day international (ODI) was washed out due to incessant rains.

Pakistan made a breezy start to their innings, reaching 31 without loss off 4.2 overs with Ahmed Shahzad racing to 25 off 16 balls and Muhammad Hafeez on four, when rain forced them off again less than 20 minutes after play began.

Speaking to a media at Queenstown Events Center, Alam said the team is confident of making a strong comeback in the series against New Zealand.

“We will try to win the third one-dayer to level the 6-match ODI series,” he said.

All players, he said, will be given an opportunity to show their performance in order to finalize an ideal combination for the upcoming World Cup.
