Pakistan made a brilliant knock against Sri Lanka and won T20I series 3-1 on Sunday (October 29).
Shoaib Malik Said– “I am blessed that my comeback also came here in Lahore. We have sent a good message across the world, the team which was attacked (came) and it’s a positive signal. The kind of hospitality they got was tremendous. Congratulations to the whole nation.”
Pakistan’s limited-overs fortunes have seen an upswing in recent times. After clinching the Champions Trophy in June, Pakistan went on to blank Sri Lanka 5-0 in the recently concluded ODI series and backed that performance up with another cleansweep in the T20Is. Malik attributed this to picking the right group of players and backing them to express themselves. “Consistency is the main thing,” Malik pointed out. “You select the right talent and then back them with consistent chances. The selection committee is giving consistent chances.
“We don’t know about tomorrow but the goal is to win and a World Cup is missing from my honour. I don’t have words to show my desire but I request to pray for me.”
