Post Match Presentation.
Mahmudullah: Batters from both sides struggled. You need to spend some time on the crease before you can capitalise. Naim batted well, I think. [On the last over] I really appreciate the way Taskin came back after injuring his bowling hand. Great character is shown by him.
Haider Ali is the Player of the Match: The pitch was a difficult. Rizi Bhai supported me and told me we want to play till the end. It became close towards the end but thankfully, we ended up on the winning side.
Mohammad Rizwan is the Player of the Series: When you play for the country, you are obviously happy and you cannot put that into words. The pitch was a tricky one. And whenever you play away, you get to play on different kinds of pitches. But we try to stick to our process. I have built some momentum in my batting and keeping over the last one year. I would like to thank the fans, it seems as if we are playing in Pakistan.
Babar Azam: The way everyone has put in the efforts, credit goes to the players. You can always improve. Like our fielding has improved, our middle order has won games for us. Whatever mistakes we made, we want to make sure we don’t repeat them in the upcoming games. We want to carry this momentum into the Test matches. I want to thank the fans here.
