T20 World Cup 2024 Match 2: Pakistan vs Canada| Captains’ Corner

“Good for us, we need this win. We started well with the bowling, in the first six overs we know we had to be up to the mark. [On winning quicker to go level with USA’s NRR] It was in our mind, to win before 14 overs but the pitch made it difficult. [On getting angry when getting out] Because I’m out with the same shot twice (against India)! This is my shot but sometimes you need success. I’ll try my best.”

Babar Azam(Pakistan Captain) said post-match

Definitely, it was a bit disappointing. We wanted to play a positive brand of cricket and I think the wicket was not very helpful. It was difficult to bat early on – not a good toss to lose. We were about 25 to 30 runs short.”

Saad Zafar(Canada Captain) said post-match
