Babar Azam: “Unfortunately we have lost all games so far. I will try to give the boys more confidence going ahead. We’re hoping we’ll play better in Lahore. I think we leaked some extra runs but I still felt that it was chase-able.”
Shadab Khan is the player of the match for his all-round brilliance: “I have struggled a lot in the last two years through injuries. Since I’ve regained fitness, I have found control and am glad that I am putting in the performances. These personal milestones are very important and I am extremely happy. I am very satisfied with the team combination. We wanted to win the toss and bat to put our bowlers in a different situation and they returned the trust. I want to specifically mention Azam Khan’s cameo at the very end. It gave us a lot of momentum going into the 2nd innings.”
