“Our goal is to create a platform for our middle order that can make their job easier. The schedule is such that we want to get 80 or 90 of the first ten overs. This is how we determine when to seize our opportunities. We talk a lot in between and that helps. We know that if we make it to the end, we can score 10-15 runs per over. When you’re done, you can finish it at the end,”Babar added
