Sarfraz Ahmed: I am happy with all of the bowlers, in particular Naseem Shah who was outstanding again tonight. We tasked our pacers to use the zip off the surface and bang it in to extract more out of it. Ahsan looks like a very improved player, he has domestic performances under his belt and now he’s proving himself at the PSL stage.”
Babar Azam: The pitch wasn’t unplayable at all, we lost back-to-back wickets which didn’t help our cause. We lost most of the wickets on the back of poor strokes and we would need to ponder hard over that. Hopefully, we can learn from our mistakes and do better in tomorrow’s encounter.”
Naseem Shah is the player of the match: “I was trying in the first match too to bowl at a length and use variations. When I played at the CPL, I found a good rhythm that carried through into the National T20. I hope to carry this momentum forward. I actively discuss field placements with the skipper whilst I’m bowling.”
