Sarfraz Ahmed: Very good win this, the bowlers bowled very well early on and the way both Hafeez and Malik batted, was excellent. When you are chasing, it is always tough, and with three wickets down it was not easy. It is a very important series, as this is very important for the qualification. The way we lost after the first match, I didn’t want to slack off, and the way the guys played it was very heartening,. They are all excellent.

Shoaib Malik, Mom & MoS: I am very happy, being a senior cricketer you have to take the extra responsibility. I must also congratulate Hafeez, he played very well, and took the pressure off me totally. The total was what I always had in my mind. I kept saying it to myself that if we keep rotating the strike, we would get closer. If you are chasing 231, and you play 50 overs, you are bound to win. I would like to congratulate Sarfraz, he has led the side extremely well. We have the Champions trophy in mind as well,and that is why winning this series was all the more important to us.
