    Each team will have to play good cricket if we wish to win this event

    Both Salman Butt and Kamran Akmal are performing well and whenever there is a place or when selectors feel it right they will be given a chance

    All the good keepers (backups) are either training in the academy or are with A team

    Our journey to the 2019 World Cup begins with this Asia Cup

    We are trying to sort problems with losing early wickets which we saw in NZ

    Our fitness is upto the mark now, our total team average used to be 17.6 or 17.7 now its 18.6

    Inzi bhai has said clearly that its not the case that Hafeez is not required any more

    Hafeez is part of our main pool of players for the 2019 World

    There is always criticism when you don't perform

    Thankfully I haven't encountered any serious criticism yet although get some bits

    We dont have a 150kph fast bowler yet but Hasan Ali is improving and his pace is improving

    We do have experienced bowlers in shape of Amir and Junaid Khan and its not just pace that matters
