Usman Khawaja  is the Man of the Match
Sarfraz Ahmed (PAK): Credit to Usman Khawaja for the way he batted through the day; he saved the match for Australia. I knew he understands Urdu, but he played the sweep and reverse sweep very well. He hung in there, batted really well and took the team home. We need to work hard, but we keep learning through the Test. The Haris review was very close too and it would have been different had that gone in our favour, but such things happen.
Tim Paine (AUS): It was an extremely tough Test match. They had us under the pump for a long time but I am proud of the way my team played. Everyone had a plan - Uman was looking to be positive and I am very happy with the way we prepared and everyone stuck to their guns in the second innings. I was nervous; very nervous. Once you get set here it becomes a lot easier. No, I don't think it feels like a win. We were outplayed but we can take a lot out of the way we played in the second innings and take it to Abu Dhabi with the series alive.
