After winning the match against New Zealand, Sarfraz Ahmed said,
“Definitely crowd always supports the Pakistan team. Thank you for all the support. Fielding is important, but we didn’t field well until today and we worked hard in our practice sessions. Good to see the results today. Whenever Pakistan team is pushed to the corner, we do well. It’s a great team effort, Firstly the bowlers. The way Amir started and then Shaheen. Shadab in the middle overs and the way Babar and Haris batted. To me, Babar played one of the best innings I have seen. It’s a tricky pitch; we wanted to bat fifty overs. Credit to Haris as well for the way he handled the pressure. It was not easy to face the off-spinner. We are not thinking about the 1992 World Cup; we are taking game by game here. We are confident as a team and hopefully, we will do well.”
Pakistan will face Afghanistan in their next game of world cup 2019 on June 29. Pakistan are standing at 6th position in the points table with 7 points.
