Sarfraz – captain, Pakistan: “Very tough conditions for us. Credit to New Zealand batsmen; Williamson batted very well. We’ll sit together and do better in the next game. It’s a setback for us, especially after losing 2 wickets in the first over.”
Williamson – Player of the Match | captain, NZ: “It’s nice to be on the right side of the result. It was great to get one today against a strong Pakistan side. It was important to start well in the series. Guptill and Munro set the tone at the top of the order. We had a good first half and the way these guys came and attacked, picking those key wickets was brilliant. Pakistan are different from Windies, and it’s important to adapt to that. I think we did that well today. It was a very good surface but at the same time, when we are up against Pakistan (we have to be at our best). They won the Champions Trophy on very similar surfaces.”
