Pakistan Cricket Team would be in a state of shock. The Men in Green weren’t able to defend a competitive total of 160 runs. The team was all set to register a thumping victory against the Men in Blue. Skipper Babar Azam would be wondering how the team lost after being in a dominant position.
Pakistan would be utterly disappointed as their pacers couldn’t wrap up the match. The Men in Green were waiting for Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya to make mistakes which proved to be costly in the end.
Babar Azam would be aware that they can’t just weep about the loss. The team quickly needs to regroup and make sure that they are ready for their next match, In a short tournament, a couple of losses can end their journey.
Babar Azam would be wary of his form, as the batter was dismissed for a first-ball duck by Arshdeep Singh. It was quite rare to see him get out without troubling the scorers. His dismissal gave India a psychological advantage.
Our bowlers bowled really well – Babar Azam
During the post-match presentation, Babar Azam was asked about the performance of the team. Our bowlers bowled really well. All credit to Kohli and Pandya. It wasn’t easy with the new ball. We had partnerships after 10 overs,” said Babar.
We had a chance – Babar Azam
“We had a chance. We tried to stick to our plans. But credit to Virat Kohli. In the middle, we decided we wanted a wicket and held the spinner back. We had a lot of positives. The way Iftikhar played and the way Shan played,” added Babar.
