“We want to win this event so that we may put a smile back on the faces of those devastated by the flood.” We were confident after losing the first match of the tournament against India. And so we emerged. Rizwan performed admirably against Hong Kong, followed by a complete bowling performance that enabled us to secure a confidence-boosting victory.”

Shadab Khan appreciated the leadership of Babar Azam :

“Babar Azam has taught us a lot, and aside from the amazing team culture he has built, I believe the best aspect of his leadership is that he has instilled in us the never-say-die mindset.” Even if we find ourselves in hopeless situations, we will battle to the last ball.”
