ABU DHABI: Young Pakistani opener Sami Aslam has said that Pakistan is still in the better position despite losing four wickets on the third day against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi Test.
Speaking to Geo News, Aslam said the conditions were very tough for the players at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
“I have played in Abu Dhabi previously but the weather is more harsh and hot as compared to the past years,” he added.
The left hand batsman maintained that he wanted to make more runs but unfortunately he could not judge the ball when he was given an LBW off Dilruwan Perera.
Aslam has already made six half centuries in 11 Tests and got appreciated in England after scoring three half centuries there.
While replying to a question about his comeback in the Test squad, Aslam said he intended to perform consistently in the team so the selectors do not drop him again.
“I want to perform consistently so the uncertainty of the selection is over,” he said with a smile.
Aslam has come up from the under-19 ranks. He was part of Pakistan’s under-19 team in both 2012 and 2014 world cups. In fact he was captain of the 2014 team which lost in the finals at Dubai cricket stadium.
