Second Test, Day 4
To win the series, everyone gave it their all. Although there wasn’t much on the pitch for the pacers in addition, they bowled really effectively in both Test matches. We checked all the boxes, worked hard on batting and fielding. This is a team effort, as Abdullah and Saud both played outstandingly in the first Test. We are taking it one series at a time and will do all in our power to succeed. It’s not easy to win here, but I believe we dominated them in both games. We had a strategy, we choose to play positive cricket and Stood to our strengths, and we want an improvement of at least 5-10%.
