Sarfraz Ahmed (PAK): Had a slight concussion which is why I couldn't take the field. Fakhar and my partnership was crucial. The way Abbas bowled was the difference between the two teams. He (Abbas) hits his areas impeccably which makes him successful. Congrats to Fakhar for a superb debut. Credit to the boys. We have a good talent pool, just need to groom them. When your team is losing, and you're not performing, obviously there's pressure on you. Thankfully, my first innings performance was able to inspire the team. Australia is a strong T20 team. Will have to play well.
Tim Paine, Australia captain: Disappointing to let things slip from the first session in Day 1. Our bowlers toiled pretty well on that wicket. It's just our batting. Abbas tested our defense time and time again. Have to go on and improve. No sugarcoating, our batting needs to be addressed. He just challenges your defense. We weren't good enough to keep him out for long. We came today with high hopes. The last Test we showed fight and spirit that we want to be renowned for. Definite positives from this series. We debuted three guys in the top six and at some points, they all showed they belong. Lyon was good.
