Dubai, Nov 19: Pakistan captain Azhar Ali promised his wounded team would fight hard in their must-win fourth and final one-day against England in Dubai on Friday, saying he was ready to face the music in case of a series loss.
Pakistan won the first one-dayer by six wickets but lost the next two and were left facing the must-win match to avoid a series defeat.
Ali said his players realised the importance of the match.
"It's a must-win game for us but it won't be easy because England played well in the last two games and won," said Ali of England's 95-run and six-wicket wins.
"But we all realise the importance of this game so we will do our hardest work to win and I am confident that if we play to our ability then we can definitely win this game."
Ali, who took over as captain after Misbah-ul-Haq retired following the 2015 World Cup in March, said he would accept being replaced as captain.
"I don't have control on future," said Ali. "Things which are not in your control, you can't control, so I think the best thing is to focus on what you have in your hands.    ?AFP
