Pakistani skipper Mohammad Rizwan is positive that the team will come back strong in the next test match against the Kiwis.
The second test match between Green Shirts and Black Caps starting from 3rd January.
Mohammad Rizwan while talking to the media said,
“The team will make a strong comeback in the next match. “Our focus is now on the victory in the second Test, we have to come back strongly.”
“I think we are in a position to play the best cricket. All those batsmen who have not contributed yet would make their mark positively,” Rizwan added.
Pakistan team lost the first match of the two-Test series against New Zealand by 101 runs on Wednesday in a highly-thrilling contest after just 27 balls were spared to a draw.
The skipper further added to his statement,
“We have taken the game to the last five overs. Despite losing Azhar early on, together with Fawad Alam, we almost reached a point where at least draw looked inevitable.”
“I think New Zealand played a better brand of cricket so they deserved the victory. Still, I believe we did well, managing to take the fight to the last,”
“When we were playing well, New Zealand kept on piling the pressure on the tourists. We must respect and praise their game,” Rizwan added.
