Post Match Presentation
Pat Cummins is Player of the Match and Usman Khawaja is Player of the Series: “We’ve had a lot of fun,” says Khawaja. “Just want to thank Pakistan and the fans. We’ve had a great time. Everyone has been really welcoming. To win this game is the icing on the gate. I think 350 with four sessions was a good target. I didn’t really think they could that score. There was enough in that wicket. Was the hardest wicket I’d batted on. Felt like the hardest hundred I’d got.”Pat Cummins “In the first innings, the way we batted and got ahead of the game was fantastic.
Thought 350, if they batted really well they were in the game but thought if we bowled to our potential it was a long way away. Glad we got there in the end. The trend of the game was the first couple of wickets were really hard to get them the run rate came down and wickets came up. Through the way we applied ourselves today, everyone was up for it. The really great thing about the whole is we played well in the Ashes, and each individual’s game can be transferred anywhere in the world. Even more than the 15 days, we’ve been so well looked after. We didn’t really know what to expect but it’s been an amazing experience. The whole spirit has been fantastic. A lot of fun. It’s been even more important than just the result.”
