hqdefault Pakistan T20 Captain spoke to the media after defeat against India in the Super 10 stage

“We couldn’t achieve the score we wanted, we were looking for 150+ especially with wickets in hand”

“Because of the 16th, 17th, and 18th over the momentum swung”

“We tried our level best but less runs on the board cost the game”

“Umar Akmal and Shaoib Malik had a good partnership but could not continue which cost us getting to the total we wanted”

“We couldn’t win this game, but there are still plenty to come in the tournament and there are some positives from this game”

“Bhatti, Akmal and Maqsood played very well”

“You have to set the tone from the start”

“The ball was not coming onto the bat, it was very spongy”

“Umar Akmal gave us some hope to score 150”

“We were ready for 3 spinners but Mishra bowled very well, credit goes to him”

“Our batting wasn’t that bad, it is hard to set a total on this kind of pitch”

“We didnt think of this as a World Cup game against India or look at the record, we just tried to play positive cricket”

“This type of pitch will give us an advantage against Australia”

“There is still a lot of cricket left to play, we have to be positive”

“Saeed Ajmal is our main bowler and we use him as our wicket taking option”

“I am bowling well opening with the ball so I decided to continue that and let Saeed Ajmal play his usual the role”
