Pakistan batsman Abid Ali said that the coronavirus pandemic will make it tougher for cricketers to perform.

“It is not easy to play in England but we have to be even mentally stronger than ever because of the pandemic situation,” the batsman said in a press conference. “We cannot ignore the disease as we now have to live with it.”

He went on to say that playing the games behind closed doors won’t be a problem for Pakistan but it may affect England’s performance during the series.

“International cricket returned to Pakistan after a decade and we had been playing in the United Arab Emirates where there were nearly no spectators but we will miss our fanbase there and their support.”

He added that his side will be eager to play as they haven’t played competitive cricket since March. “We have been doing special training for the tour and will try to play our best cricket.”

The batsman said that England-West Indies series will help Pakistan in their preparations. “We will get to know about the conditions by watching them perform and will have ample time to get prepared as we are heading there more than a month ahead of time.”

He congratulated Haider Ali on being selected for the tour of England and backed him to make full use of the opportunity.
