Asia Cup Finals: Azam congratulated Sri Lanka after the glorious title battle :-
Babar Azam said after the title match, “Congratulations to Sri Lanka for playing great cricket. We dominated them for the first eight overs, but the partnership that Rajapaksa got was amazing.
It was a good wicket and it’s always good to play in Dubai. We didn’t bat according to our ability. We started well but gave 15-20 extra runs and couldn’t finish well.”
Babar told positive and negative aspects for the team :-
Captain Babar Azam further said, “We got a lot of positives from which we have to learn. There are less chances of mistakes in the final. Our fielding was not perfect and we could not finish it well even in batting, but Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah and Mohammad Nawaz were positive for us. There will be ups and downs, but it would be better if we make fewer mistakes.”
