‘Was just a bad day for us’ Babar confident to bounce back


JOHANNESBURG: Babar Azam said it was just a bad day for his team and they will bounce back in the upcoming third T20I. 

While sharing his thoughts on the second T20I defeat, Babar said they lacked in few areas which cost them this match. “Not very much disappointed as we have been performing quite well on this tour. It was a bad day for us but well come back from this,” he said.

The skipper highlighted the weaknesses of his team and assured overcoming them in next matches. “Our top-order collapsed and failed to utilize first six overs. Middle-order lacked consistency as only I and Hafeez Bhai clicked but couldn’t continue for long,” he shared.

“South Africa bowled really well to make the most of taking early wickets. Our bowlers failed to carry the momentum and in T20Is if you don’t take wickets in the powerplay, things get out of control,” concluded Babar.
