These players are responsible for the defeat

Pakistan captain Babar Azam said after the match, “It hurts us. We had a good score. We are not doing well in bowling because we are not taking wickets in the middle overs. In the World Cup, if you are not good in one department, you will lose the match. We did not stop the boundaries in the field, due to which we had to suffer the consequences.

scolded the bowlers

Blaming the bowlers for this defeat, the Pakistan captain said, “Bowling – we started well, we needed wickets in the middle overs but we could not take any wickets. Full credit goes to Afghanistan for the way they played in all three departments. Because of this they won. We are not playing well in bowling and fielding. We will give our best performance in the next match. We did not bowl the length in the middle overs, especially our spinners. We could not put pressure on the batsmen.
