Pakistan’s explosive opening batter Fakhar Zaman, ahead of the impending T20I series against New Zealand, expressed his adaptability to bat at any position. He emphasized the trust the team management has placed in his versatility, indicating his readiness to contribute from any position on the field.

Fakhar Zaman’s reaction came after the reports indicated a demotion in his batting order, with Babar and Zaman making way for young opener Saim Ayub at the top.

“I don’t see it as sacrificing my role. It’s about contributing to our victories wherever I’m placed in the batting order. With the team’s competitive edge, I feel lucky to secure a spot among standout performers like Babar, Rizwan, and Saim,” Fakhar explained during a media session.

Even if top-order slots are occupied by Babar or Rizwan, Fakhar remains flexible. “If they bat at one down, I’m open to stepping in at two down or even at positions six or seven,” he shared.

Anticipated to slot in at fourth, Fakhar aligns with the proposed batting order, with Rizwan and Saim expected to open, followed by Babar at one-down.

Looking forward to the 2024 T20 World Cup, Fakhar suggested a strategy of experimenting with newer talents in around 15 to 20 matches. This tactical move would provide the team’s key players with occasional rests while nurturing potential backups for Babar and Rizwan.

“While it’s challenging to replace Babar and Rizwan, these upcoming matches offer a chance to try out fresh talent,” Fakhar noted.

This approach could prove vital in reinforcing the team’s bench strength while maintaining a competitive edge in the run-up to the major tournament.
