Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq - Starts off saying that it was an important win for them. They are called as not good chasers. Credits Hafeez, Maqsood and Afridi for batting well. Their plan was clear with the dew around, they knew if they take it to the last over, they always had a chance. Says that they are not thinking of the final, they just want to do well in the next game.
Indian captain, Virat Kohli - Begins stating that the idea was to not let the batsmen settle down. Credits Mishra for bowling really well. Their plans were to rotate the bowlers and not let the batsmen get used to them. Admits they were 20-30 runs short. Confesses that the team played well and they will only learn with experience so he is proud of them.
Pakistan in their chase, got off to a solid start with the openers playing well. India then struck back with four quick wickets to peg them back. Hafeez however continued on his merry way to score his fifty. They lost wickets in a cluster at the end but Afridi played a blinder in the end to ensure they won the match.
India got to a decent total thanks to fifties from Rohit, Rayudu and Jadeja. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals which hampered their progress. Ajmal was the best bowler for Pakistan picking up three wickets. Their batsmen yet again threw away their starts which again cost them the match and possibly a spot in the Asia Cup Final.
