The Pakistan team management on Thursday said that flying the country’s flag during the practice session is nothing new for them and it has started since Saqlain Mushtaq joined the team as interim head coach.
Talking to the media here, the media management of the Pakistan team in Bangladesh said, “This is not a new thing for us. This is part of the coaching after Saqlain Mushtaq joined the team. He believes that practicing with the flag gives more motivation to the players.
Earlier, the Pakistan Cricket Board, seeing the matter getting heated, said in a clarification that for the last two months, during the practice of the team, they have been playing the country’s flag in the ground.
On this occasion, Pakistan captain Babar Azam said that his team gets a lot of support in Bangladesh. He said, ‘They support our team with their team. Whenever we go out for practice, people cheer us on seeing us in the bus. In such a situation, it is a good decision to allow 50 percent spectators to enter the field for the T20 series.
