BIRMINGHAM: Cricket fans and experts were surprised to see Pakistan’s improvement in the fielding department against South Africa, where they were agile and grabbed all the catches unlike their performance against India where they misfielded and dropped some sitters that cost them dearly.
During the post-match press conference, a reporter asked Sarfraz Ahmed that what Pakistan did to improve their fielding in particular.
The newly appointed Pakistani skipper replied that they did not get a chance to do fielding drills as it was raining outside and the team had an indoor practice session.
“Actually we did no fielding at all, we had rain the other day,” he replied. “So actually we did nothing,” he added with a smile.
He further told that Pakistan did well in the field because his players were quite motivated for the game and every piece fell right in the place.
“Our players were already boost up from yesterday’s meeting I think, so everything fell right in the place,” he concluded.
Pakistan won the all important match by 19 runs with D/L method in the equation.
