Shadab Khan: "To be honest, I didn't think about that (DLS par score)"

Shadab Khan confirmed his quality in the match against South Africa, in which his team won. Khan excelled, but without the help of the team, it would have been difficult. "It's good, because if you score runs in a winning cause, that's more important and right in that situation.

Especially I think credit goes to Nawaz and Iftikhar. They played brilliantly, and they put pressure on the bowlers. When I went out, it was a little bit easier," Khan said, as quoted by cricbuzz.com Mohammad Haris is another one of those who had a great performance "Haris is brilliant.

He hadn't performed in internationals, but still we carried him from last one here. We know that he has the potential to play these types of innings. So I'm happy for him. It's coming from the team, and our captain says just express yourself.

Don't worry about anybody or anything else. Because we can control the controllable things, so we just think about that," he observed. Shadab did not think about the DLS par score and wanted to show his qualities. "To be honest, I didn't think about that (DLS par score), I just bowled.

I have simple plans. I just bowl, and if the ball is gripping, if you straighten it up, it doesn't matter. To be honest, I didn't know about the weather."

Temba Bavuma on the game

Temba Bavuma, the South African player explained the main problem of South Africa and praised the game of Pakistan.

"Conditions changed a little bit with the ball going to skid. I think in terms of our awareness, in terms of adapting to that, we were very slow. We allowed them to get momentum into their innings, and they were able to get a formidable score on the board.

I think with the ball, with them coming into the field, they had momentum. They probably had the advantage on their side, and they just ran with that. I think a team like Pakistan, as you know, is very dangerous when you give them any type of momentum.

I think the hard lines with bowlers, that's been something we've spoken a lot, and that's been very successful for us as a unit. Guys using the pace, guys using their height. I think on that wicket, especially when it started sliding into the wicket and the short boundaries were in play, that is once they started being able to exploit that, and they really put us under pressure," he added.
