Babar Azam Pakistan Captain
It’s a team game. Cricket is a funny game. Appreciate all my team the way they played all matches. Pitch wasn’t easy to bat on. Little bit two-paced. Me and Rizwan decided to go long, but unfortunately didn’t work out. Haris showed aggression, good to see him play. Looking forward to the semifinals. All of us are excited to play.
Shakib Al Hasan Bangladesh Captain
At the halfway stage we were 70/1. Wanted to get somewhere around 145-150 – would’ve been a reasonable total on that pitch. Knew it was going to be difficult for the new batters so wanted set batters to carry through to the end which didn’t happen. In terms of results, this is the best performance we had in T20 World Cups. Could’ve done better. But having said that, with the new guys coming in, with the changes, this is the best we could expect. On my own performance – I could’ve done better. As long as I’m fit and performing, I’d love to play.
Shaheen Shah Afridi is the man of the Match
I am improving day by day. Not easy to bowl at 140 after coming back from injury. We have played good cricket in the last few games. Team needed me to bowl well. We are looking forward to the final actually.

Wins always give you confidence. Harris set the momentum then Iftikhar and Shadab finished it off. We are looking forward to this match. We have the same team.
Shakib Al Hasan
We will bat first. Looks a dry wicket. Put the runs on the board and defend. We know the importance of the game. We will have to play well. We are all calm. We have three changes.
