Babar acknowledged the unfamiliarity with playing conditions in the America but expressed confidence in his team’s ability to adapt and thrive. He highlighted the experience of players like Imad Wasim, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan, who have played in the Major Cricket League (MLC) in the USA.

“USA’s team knows its conditions very well. Their players play all their cricket on these grounds. We will try to not repeat the mistakes we made in the past and our senior players have to take responsibility now,” Babar noted.
