Gurbaz said,”Today, the one thing that I changed in my batting was that I also focused on some strike rotation as well before I was just trying to hit too hard and you know take some advantage from the circle but today my focus was also in some cricket good cricket shots not only power so yeah, as I mentioned that we are we had chat about it before the match me and Babar. I just said that it helped me a lot.”
He further added, “Earlier, I was trying to hit every ball but today I saw Babar Azam’s batting as well when he was in. I was just focused on how he hits the boundaries.”
Gurbaz was also asked about his favourite cricketer and for this he named two players. The Afghan batter said he loves watching Ab De Villiers but he is a big fan of Virat Kohli’s batting.
“From when I was a kid, I liked to watch him (de Villiers) bat. His energy throughout the match. His aggressive hitting. Currently, I love Virat Kohli’s batting,” Gurbaz added
