After the defeat in this T20 series, Pakistani team captain Shaheen Afridi cited poor bowling as the biggest reason for this. Shaheen said after the match that in the history of this ground, whether it is international or domestic cricket, chasing the target here has been a very easy task, we had also decided to bowl first only after discussing it in the team. However, we were not able to bowl well during the power play. So far, we have not been able to bowl well at all in all three matches of this series. Despite this, keeping the big event in mind, we need to give time to this team.
