Shoaib Malik is the player of the match: “You have to play your shots in this format, SR has to be 140-plus, openers gave us a good start too. I assessed the conditions as soon as possible and kept backing my strokeplay. We have played on this strip before and we realized bowling those slower deliveries was the way to go.”
Babar Azam: “The pitch was on the slow side and I think we leaked some extra runs in the middle and death overs. On the batting front, we couldn’t get a partnership rolling. I tried to take it deep but we didn’t work our way. Yes, it was to take the slower deliveries on, unfortunately, we couldn’t execute tonight. We would want to learn from tonight and not repeat our mistakes from here on.”
Wahab Riaz: “Teams putting runs on the board are faring better here in recent days since batting 2nd isn’t as straightforward. Everyone is chipping in and adjusting to the conditions really well. Umar and Irshad were wonderful tonight, hats off to them, that’s the kind of performances we need as a team from them and it will boost everyone’s confidence.”
