The crucial partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya helped India defeat arch-rivals Pakistan by five wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
“He did very well in bowling and in batting as he finished off the game was great. According to me, he is a very good all-rounder,” said Babar Azam said in a post-match press conference.
“Our only game plan was to take the game as deep as possible. Naseem Shah bowled very well and took crucial wickets for the team. Unfortunately, we couldn’t finish but I think Nawaz should be given credit for performing well in the pressure game. The shortfall remained with our partnership. The toss doesn’t matter, the team’s efforts matter. And my team performed very well. It was a big match for Naseem Shah but still, he did very well. It was his confidence, the way he has shown his advance,” he added.
