|Venue:||National Stadium, Karachi|
|Toss:||Pakistan, Bat 1st|
Pitch Report: The surface at the National Bank Cricket Arena will once again be expected to assist the batters and they will be able to score runs easily once they are well set at the crease. Nonetheless, it is also expected to be a dry wicket which will provide a lot of help for the spinners.
Babar Azam: We started well and it went according to plan. Agha took back to back wickets and that kept us in the game but Phillips took the game away for us. I think we were 10-15 runs short. The way Rizwan was battting was good but we had quite some soft dismissals in the middle. Spinners bowled well and kept the batters in check and we executed our plans too but Phillips took the game away from us. When your teammates perform, especially the way Zaman and Rizwan did, was really good.
Kane Williamson: He wasn’t feeling great either but he came out and played an incredible innings. At the halfway stage, we were in the game. We were curious how the pitch would play but it play decently. Credit to Pakistan for bowling well and for the fight they put up in the series. (On Phillips) He had one thing in mind and he hit the ball beautifully. It was one of those knocks, he came out and took us to victory. The surfaces have been really competitive, our bowlers have bowled well, we have taken wickets at the back-end. Last game it turned a lot but today it didn’t turn much. A great series, a lot of good contributions together. It’s absolutely great to be here. as a team, we have really enjoyed our time, on and off the field. It has a been a special experience to play in Pakistan.
