In the group stage of the Asia Cup, India spoiled the bowling plan of Pakistan by promoting Ravindra Jadeja in the batting order, then in the Super Four stage, the green shirts surprised and disturbed the opponent by sending Mohammad Nawaz to the fourth position. He had to score 115 runs off 68 balls.
At that time, the set batsman Muhammad Rizwan was also finding it difficult to play strokes to the spinners, he was also in pain due to an injury while capping.
Mohammad Nawaz paved the way for victory with an innings of 42 off 20 balls, other batsmen found it easy to complete the mission.
Talking about his performance, Muhammad Nawaz said that it was the team’s plan to play with a right-left combination, it was decided that if Fakhr Zaman gets out, I will go to bat, my thinking was clear in this situation at the crease.
What to do going forward, there was pressure in the match but it was positive, not negative, knew I could do it, just kept my composure and used my skills, my effort was successful, and confidence from good innings under intense pressure.
I have improved tremendously, even while bowling I tried to put the batsmen in doubt with one or two balls in every over, this strategy was also successful, and the expectations of the fans increased, and I will work hard to fulfill them. Want to perform as a reliable all-rounder?
Mohammad Rizwan has said that I did what Hardik Pandya did in the last match. Targeting maximum scores, our plan was to take the match to the end as we have an idea of the strength and depth of the batting, and were sure to score 40 to 45 runs in the last 4 overs.
Captain Babar Azam says that the Indian team took full advantage of the power play, but the bowlers restricted them by coming back, the fast bowlers and spinners bowled well, if my bat did not work, then for the third wicket, Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Rizwan’s brilliant partnership paved the way for victory, the leg-spinners were in action, Muhammad Nawaz was sure to perform.
Babar Azam said on social media that the team of champions won the sensational competition, the victory is for the flood victims in Pakistan.
It should be remembered that Pakistan’s next test will be against Afghanistan on Wednesday. The Afghan team was defeated by Sri Lanka in the first match of the Super Four stage
. Both Pakistan and Afghanistan have hired aggressive batsmen and excellent spinners. Yes, the Green Shirts have more options in fast bowling, a win will ensure Pakistan’s entry into the final.
