“First of all, I want to thank everyone from the (team) management. Everyone is pained and is thinking about where we went wrong and where we could have done better. Nobody will tell us this, we all know it. We have to learn from it. This unit of ours should not be broken. No one should point fingers at others. We have to accept that we haven’t played well as a team. There should be no finger-pointing. Everyone should look at the positives. We have lost, that is fine. It happens. We will learn from this and not repeat the mistakes in the future. I am requesting all of you that this bond of ours should not break. This does not happen overnight and we should maintain this unity and not let one loss bother us.
“As a captain, I received a great response from the team. It was a great environment, like that of a family. Everyone put in a lot of effort and no one shied away from taking responsibility. This is what is expected from a team. The effort is in our hands and the result isn’t. No one should feel sad or deflated. We should think about where we went wrong and how we can improve.
“These are the times when you should support each other and not pull anyone down. I shouldn’t hear about anyone pulling a teammate down. Learn from this and enjoy. The pain will stay for a while but we have to overcome it. Wish you all the best,”Babar said.
Pakistan had set a total of 176 after the end of their innings. Rizwan and Fakhar played some watchful innings and both scored their half-centuries. Then, Shaheen Afridi start very well with the ball and took the first wicket by removing Finch in the first over of the inning.
At one moment, Australia was in a good stand and the match was going in Australia’s favor then, Shadab got the four wickets and tried to give some hope to the team but Hassan Ali’s dropped a catch in the crucial moment was a turning point of the game and after dropped this catch Wade hits three consecutively sixes to the Shaheen and seal the match for the Aussies with an over to spare.
