Colin Munro is the player of the match: “It was a beautiful wicket to bat one. I wanted to keep the momentum going after the flyer we had got earlier on. I backed my strengths and tried to hit the ball hard. Azam Khan was outstanding, he is a wonderful ball-striker and it’s great to have him on our side from this year’s PSL.”
Sarfraz Ahmed: “We made a lot of mistakes in the powerplay and we couldn’t hold onto the catches earlier. There are definite positives for us: Naseem Shah made an excellent comeback in the last two overs and Mohammad Nawaz played excellent innings, too.”
Shadab Khan: “There are still some things to learn for us despite this performance tonight. We are leaking a lot of runs at the death which is something we need to ponder over. I am extremely happy for Colin and Azam for their performances tonight. I am also very pleased with my own performance too. I want to lead from the front and chip into the team’s good to inspire others. I hope I can continue this form throughout the tournament.”
