Was looking forward to taking advantage of this chance: Shadab Khan on batting at No.4 Srinagar:

Shadab Khan, an all-rounder for Pakistan, moved up in the batting order following his team’s T20 encounter against New Zealand, which took place on Saturday in Christchurch, and performed an important knock, helping the side to a six-wicket victory against the home team.

During the chase for 148, Shadab was given the position of No. 4 and scored 34 runs off of 22 balls, assisting Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistani team, who hit an unbeaten 79 to give Pakistan their second victory of the series.

In a video that was uploaded by the PCB, Shadab said that he had been waiting for this opportunity since he had done the same thing for his Pakistan Super League side Islamabad United.

“Without a doubt, I was looking forward to taking advantage of this chance. I had experience playing in the PSL, and as a result, I was confident in my abilities. “My strategy is straightforward, and that is to exert pressure on the bowlers,” Shadab said.

“When you become a professional, you want greater responsibility, pressure, and expectations because you want to become a player that both the team and the nation depends on. I am thrilled by the constructive pressure, and I do my best to do well in all three areas,” he continued.

In the same video, Babar Azam said that moving Shadab and Mohammad Mohammad Nawaz up the order was a good idea since both of them put pressure on the bowlers.

“We had the plan to employ Shadab and Nawaz and send them up the order since we are aware of their ability and the manner that they execute things,” Babar stated in the video. “We had the plan to send them up the order since we are aware of their ability and the way that they execute things.”

It’s an important thing to emphasise that both of them put pressure back on the bowlers. Because Shadab generally doesn’t receive a lot of at-bats, this was the idea that we came up with. Therefore, the plan was to take advantage of him and the way that he attacked the bowlers, which allowed us to gain momentum.
