Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, on Friday said that they can’t think too much about disappoiting opening match against West Indies as they have got further matches to play.
“We have 8 matches left and I have full faith in my team’s ability to perform better. We’ll try to forget this match and come back strongly in the next one”
Pakistan was handed a seven-wicket thrashing by the West Indies after being bowled out for 105 in a dismal display of batting. It was Pakistan’s 11th ODI loss in a row.
“First of all the start is very crucial here. You know, with the 10:30 start, as I told you before in the last press conference, the start is very crucial for our team. That is why we wanted to bowl first. I think at the start we lost too many wickets. That’s why we didn’t come back into the game,” Sarfaraz said at the post-match press conference.
“We expected a hard game but we knew we have what it takes to play and win. But we lost so many wickets up front when we were batting because of those couple of short balls.”
