Post Match Presentation.
Imad: I think we were 20 runs short, to be honest. It was the pressure of the wickets. The bowlers bowled really really well, according to the plan, and it came off. It’s the end of the tournament and you should peak at the right time. We have one more game and if we win, we go through. We are in the right frame of mind. We lose three games, it was really disappointing. We stood and up spoke in the team meetings.
Noor Ahmad is the Player of the Match: I’m feeling very happy. We tried hard to win the match and played out 100%.
Sohail Akhtar: I think the batting was alright. After the powerplay, for 6-7 overs, we had a bad time. Overall we were alright. But we had lapses in the field that costed about 20 runs. Noor and Imad bowled good spells. The spin overs in the middle – if we went even run-a-ball, we would’ve done this. Our bowling’s going well. Batting is where we’ve had problems. Having said that, the middle order has done slightly better in the last two matches, so we’ll take that forward.
