They got the advantage the way they used powerplay – Babar Azam
During the post-match presentation ceremony, Babar Azam said the India national cricket team took the advantage after a great performance in powerplay, but the Pakistani bowlers made a great comeback. He added that the partnership of Muhammad Radwan and Muhammad Nawaz, which spanned 73 times, was the turning point in the match. Babar Azam said:
“Our effort is to keep it simple. The ups and downs will continue to happen. They got the edge the way they used powerplay. But our rollers are back. The Radwan-Nawaz partnership was the turning point.”
Babar Azam also talked about why Muhammad Nawaz was promoted in the batting order. He said:
“I thought Nawaz could override because they had two running legs working, so we dismissed them (on his promotion). Our deer and our fast-death pioneers set the stage for us.”
