New Delhi: Pakistan bowlers Haris Rauf was seen taking Pakistan flag in the ground during the practise session. When asked about the reason, he has explained that it helps motivates teammates as it reminds us who we are playing for.
“The significance of the flag is that when Saqlain Mushtaq joined during last T20 World Cup, he integrated this new practice in the team. When we look at the flag, it motivates us. When we look at the flag, we also think of the 22 crore people back home, who are always backing and supporting us. We are playing for them and for the country. So, we try to keep them in front of us and do our best,” said Haris Rauf while answering query by reporter.
