Mohammad Hafeez is the Player of the Match: “It’s my first MoM award as a bowler. We knew the conditions were tough for the batsmen against spinners. Shadab bowled really well, and Shaheen’s last over, he nailed his yorkers.”
Pollard says: “I thought the way the bowlers bounced back shows we’re consistent with the ball. I don’t think the pitch changed much but it dried out a bit. Pakistan bowled wicket-to-wicket, but the way we fought, in the end, was impressive.
“At the end of the day we could have taken a few more singles, but you can come up with lots of ideas, but this is a learning curve for us. There are things we continue to look at, and it’s all about improvement as the games go on. We were on the losing end today but all hope isn’t lost.”
Babar says: “I was very impressed with the boys. We were 10-15 runs short, but our bowlers bowled very well, and I think we should give them credit. We were looking for 170-180, but we lost too many wickets at that time.”
Pays tribute to Hafeez too. “He showed his experience in the PP. As captain, it pleased me tremendously.”
