Opener Saif Hassan has expressed that it has been a dream from his childhood to open with Tamim Iqbal and that chance might come in the upcoming Test against Pakistan at Rawalpindi which starts from February 7.
"Almighty willing! Everyone saw Tamim Bhai's innings. My childhood, it has been a dream to open with him," Saif told the media on Monday.
Saif also explained that he was willing to play according to the situation of the team and what the team demanded.
"Whatever the situation demands, I'm willing to do it. If early wickets fall, I will try to bat for as long as possible. The type of pitch we play on will also dictate the way I have to play," the right-hander explained.
The 21-year-old was supposed to make his Test debut against India in the second Test at Kolkata, but he picked up a hand injury while fielding as a substitute in the first Test.
"I was prepared to make my Test debut against India but I got injured. Previously we got time to prepare with the batting coach Neil Mckenzie and overall I'm feeling very ready to give it my best if I get the opportunity," Saif concluded.
