After registering victory over Netherlands, Babar said, ‘I am very happy about this victory. The team has performed well with both the ball and the bat. I think the length with which the bowlers bowled in this match proved to be important. There was bounce on the pitch. In such a situation, it was necessary for the bowlers to bowl at good length to take advantage of the pitch. He was successful in doing so. All the bowlers bowled according to the plan. We could have chased better runs. Winning always boosts your confidence. We will take good things forward from this match.
It was a do or die match for Pakistan. Pakistan has at least done its share of work by defeating the Netherlands. However, his road to the semi-finals is still not easy. He will also have to depend on the results of other teams.
