After winning the series, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, “It is not an easy task to chase a target, but credit goes to Abid Ali on the way he started. All the batsmen put their hands up, and that’s why we chased the target down. The fielding was not up to the mark, and if we field like that, we would not win many matches. I am honoured to play in Pakistan. They are a strong team and T20 is a format where anything can happen on that particular day.”
After losing the series, Sri Lanka captain Lahiru Thirimanne, “I am really proud because they (the boys) fought really hard. It was a good total, but we did not execute our plans in the first ten overs. But really proud of the boys. In the first ODI, Dasun (Shanaka) and Shehan (Jayasuriya) batted really well, and in this game, Danushka (Gunathilaka) took his opportunity. It is very exciting as it was my first time in Pakistan and I enjoyed my experience. I would encourage other teams to come here and play.”
