Elton Chigumbura (Zimbabwe all-rounder): “It’s important that we have to play to win, not to just compete. So all those mindsets are things that we have spoken about in training and everyone is aware of what we need to do as a team and as individuals when it comes to these international games. Hopefully we start on a good note.”

Babar Azam (Pakistan captain): “It’s a great honour for me to be able to captain Pakistan in ODI cricket. The ICC league gives every series context, with seven qualifying berths up for grabs. So, we want to put as many points on the board as possible so when we get to the World Cup, people talk about us seriously. In 2011, we qualified for the semi-finals and in 2019, we couldn’t get through. I don’t think the rankings matter but I want us to start well and I fully trust my team to perform well and qualify.”
