Chasing a 168-run target, the Pakistani Team was defeated by one wicket in the two-match series on Sunday.

In a video released by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the 26-year-old is seen acknowledging the bowlers' performance, explaining the low target.

“This is the beauty of Test cricket,” he said.  “We put in a good effort with the bat [first innings] and the bowlers then restricted them. Again, in the second innings, we fought with the bat and the bowlers hit back. Our bowlers were really good, especially [Mohammad] Abbas and Shaheen [Afridi]. Had we taken those dropped catches, the result could have been different.”

The captain went on and pointed that the batsmen were unable to maintain momentum in both innings.

“In first innings, me and Azhar [Ali] formed a good partnership but we got out,” he continued “The same thing happened in the second innings and we were not able to convert good starts into big scores’’, he further added.


The second and final Test of the series is expected to start from August 20 at the same venue.
