I am speechless at this moment. It was difficult.

The thing was that after the bowling innings we went back and everyone was confident. Unluckily, they got Babar Azam early but we got good partnerships after that. It’s a good track and was supportive to us. I told Shafique to take it step by step. Sometimes cramps and sometimes I was okay (chuckles),” he concluded.
