The 30-year-old made 115-ball 101 not out in his comeback match after returning home from the South Africa tour with a knee injury last year, lifting Pakistan to a fighting total in their 50 overs.
However, the visitors have been struck with the stomach bug across their squad ahead of the five-match ODI series which is set to commence on March 22. I think Pakistan will also perform well in the World Cup looking at the way they have been performing. I guess taking it one series at a time - it's a bit of a cliché, but that's how it is. "Apart from us I think all the other teams are really strong", Kuldeep was quoted as saying by Sports Tak.
Zampa's inconsistent use in the ODI team since 2016, where he was picked and dropped nearly irrespective of how he was performing, led to the attitude come January a year ago that he was quite simply a conditions-based selection.
Legspinner Adam Zampa, fresh from the most prolific series of his career in which he regularly got the better of Virat Kohli, predicted another tough challenge for him and his team. "So I do back myself in any conditions".
Pakistan's stand-in skipper Malik is confident the conditions in the UAE - where Pakistan have been playing their home matches since the 2009 attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore - will favour his team.
"That's the way I see it, with the strength of our fast bowling that we have too, I am going to miss games".
"Whereas the Pakistani guys go quite hard. they'll choose a period during the game when they'll take me on, so that's something I'm up for. He's going to be a big part of this team moving forward".
Haris, who reached 1,000 runs in his 27th one-day worldwide when on 40, added 98 for the third wicket with Umar Akmal who made 50-ball 49 in his first global match for two years.
