Imad Wasim: We had it in the bag. We could not finish it off. It is unfortunate but we lacked game awareness in the end. I think the intent was really nice. In the middle overs, we slowed it down. In T20 cricket, we have to finish games. We have not been able to do that (this season). We have to sit and talk. If we lose one more, we might be out of the competition. It is just a matter of clicking and believing in ourselves.
Mohammad Rizwan is also the Player of the Match: (On the Multan leg) The crowd supported us very much and showed a lot of love. Hopefully, we will get as much support in all the other cities as well. I did not play well early on. The ball was coming onto the bat. Shan was playing well so I took my time. Shoaib bhai and Imran bhai were bowling brilliantly in the middle overs. I want to give credit to our bowlers. At the halfway stage, we thought we were 10-15 runs short. The way Abbas bowled the last over, the way Ihsanullah has been bowling this tournament, the way Ilyas bowled – they should be given credit. Cricket presents a new challenge every day and we hope that we can continue this momentum moving forward.
