“Turkish Epic Diriliş: Ertuğrul is the Pakistan Cricket Team’s Motivator,” says Azhar Ali

The cricket players are confined to a bio-secure bubble and are cut off from the public.

Diriliş: Ertuğrul, the renowned Turkish drama, never fails to win the hearts of Pakistanis. Among other things, the series has recently become the Pakistan cricket team\\’s major motivator.

Despite the loss the team suffered, from a winning position in the first test match and the disappointment the players faced due to rain and bad light in the second test match, the players\\’ spirits are still on fire ahead of their third encounter against England.

How is Ertugrul motivating Pakistan\\’s cricket team?

The cricket players are confined to a bio-secure bubble and are cut off from the public. Alongside this restriction, the incidents of the first two test matches against England also damaged the team\\’s confidence. In all this, the historical Turkish series keeps the performers in a good state of mind.

At a press conference on the eve of the third and final test match at Southampton, Azhar Ali, the Pakistan cricket team captain said:

There is hardly any player in the Pakistan cricket squad who is not watching Diriliş: Ertuğrul. The series is serving as a diversion for cricketers to lift themselves.

The captain further added:

It\\’s tough to lift the side after losing a winning match, but we have done well to elevate ourselves. We will continue to do our best. The team will work hard to win this test and level the series despite being 1-0 down.

It is to be noted that Pakistan\\’s cricket team has not lost a series in England since the ill-fated tour in 2010. The men in green will return home on the 2nd of September after playing the third test match followed by a three-match T20I series.

We wish the Pakistan cricket team good luck!
