During the presentation, player of the match Harry Brook says: “I tried to learn from my mistake in the first innings. I wanted to put the pressure on the spinners and it worked.

We knew before coming into the game that it is going to be a turner, they have been asking for it and there was a lot of talk in the dressing room as well, so wasn’t surprised. We just tried to go out there and play our band of cricket, happy that it came off”.

The final Test match of the series will be played on December 17 – December 21 in National Stadium, Karachi.
