Pathum Nissanka:I wanted to remain there till the game was finished. Despite their greater speed, I knew what to do because I had confidence in my abilities. That came in handy in the middle. Without a doubt, this victory will give us a boost going into the championship.
Babar Azam: (Are you worried about scores around 120?) The batting after the powerplay wasn’t up to par. We were unable to expand from there. (Happened to go bowling?) Definitely. They have always been created by us. Our speed bowling group is excellent. The comeback by Hasan and the others were both excellent. (Lessons in loss) We talk about our mistakes before the big game.
Birthday boy Dasun Shanaka:Any batting lineup will be tested by the bowling combination, which includes a left-arm fast bowler, an offspinner, a legspinner, and variations from the spinners. Concerning areas before the conclusion? Extras. early in the game, quick bowler lines would form. We’ll benefit if we can take a few wickets early in the championship game.
The Player of the Match is Wanindu Hasaranga: The winning hits came after three wickets, two catches, and one run out. “(Happy space?)” he declares. When I enter the game, I strive to play in such manner. (Three wickets: Babar, Iftikhar, and Asif) I’m pretty pleased since I went for some runs in my last few games. I’m glad to have returned strongly with several wickets of high calibre. In my first few overs, I attempted to bowl dot balls, which is how the three wickets were taken.
