KARACHI: Pakistan’s middle-order batsman Fawad Alam, who was not given a chance to showcase his skills in the 2015 World Cup, addressed a press conference on Wednesday saying that the new-face national team supports the new ODI captain Azhar Ali.

"We will try to perform as good as we can in the series against Bangladesh,” said Fawad.

“All the players support the new captain. A captain cannot do anything without players’ help and we are here to support him completely.

“I have been focusing hard on my fitness after I was left out of the team for the World Cup and I am in a good shape for the upcoming series.”

While commenting on Pakistan's opening options he said, “It is difficult to open with a middle-order batsman so we would be going with proper openers.”
