Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has a clear goal for his team as they prepare for the 2023 World Cup. He wants them to win the tournament, not just aim for a top-four finish.
Speaking at a press conference in Lahore before departing for the World Cup, Babar stressed that their ambition is bigger than just making it to the top four teams. They are determined to become champions. He mentioned that due to their busy schedule, they couldn’t have a proper training camp before the World Cup. Instead, they gave the players a break so that they could return refreshed and motivated to succeed.
Babar also expressed his pride in representing Pakistan at the World Cup, even though they haven’t played in India before. He assured that the team doesn’t feel overwhelmed by the pressure. They have done their research and believe that the playing conditions in India are similar to those in other Asian countries. Babar concluded by expressing his hope that they will return home with the World Cup trophy.
