Fakhar Zaman, quite deservedly, is the player of the match: “I try to think of it as one ball at a time and I don’t try anything significantly different. The pitch was taking some turn for their spinners so I had to carefully take the chance against them. With time, I am becoming more aware of my role at the top of the order.”
Babar Azam: “I felt we got a good score on the board after playing well in the powerplay. I want to credit Fakhar Zaman for his outstanding innings. Our pacers didn’t execute the variations at the dying overs and I feel we need to field well too.”
Shaheen Afridi: “We wanted to play positive, aggressive cricket from the get-go and look for wickets early on. Rashid Khan through the middle phases was excellent. Haris Rauf made a good comeback following yesterday’s game. The senior members of the team are assisting me in captaincy-related decisions and they are always there to guide me. I hope Fakhar can keep batting like this for Lahore and Pakistan, he was quite brilliant.”
