Faheem Ashraf, who is in Islamabad United of the Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) eighth edition, feels that over-powering the fear of failure is one of the key reasons for his team’s success in the tournament.
In an internvew, Faheem said that when a player is empowered to play his natural game the way he wants, then it is very much likely that his performance will produce great results for the team.
“In United’s squad, we are not afraid of losing a match, we don’t think about any consequences of losing a match, we are only focused on winning – nothing else,” Faheem said.
“When you think about things like what will happen if I am not successful then it will not allow you to try new things or adopt anything out of the box which could have helped you,” the all-rounder said.
Islamabad United is the only team to win the PSL twice and is known for its aggressive brand of cricket. How-ever, Faheem believes that the team plays “aggressive and smart cricket”.—Agencies
