India's Batting Was Exceptional: Pakistan Captain
“The pitch was good, and we didn't put enough runs on the board. (On winning the toss) I think Haider and I had a great partnership, we were at a good position at the 25-over mark, but Haider got out at a crucial point, and the rest of the batsmen weren't able to take enough responsibility,” said Pakistan captain Rohail Nazir.
“I think they (India) were brilliant in the field, and their batting was exceptional. They took good catches, and took wickets whenever we were looking at getting a partnership going on,”said Nazir.
Want to Treat the Finals Like Just Another Game: Priyam Garg
“Happy here. It is just one step closer to what we want to achieve. I think our bowling attack is the best in this tournament. Our quicks bowl 140+ and our spinners do complement them really well. It isn't the first time that the openers are playing like this.” said an elated Indian captain Priyam Garg.
“They have been doing it for the last one year, they come from the same state, they understand each other and have good understand while running between the wickets. I would like to focus on the same processes and treat the finals like just another game,” added Garg.
