Bengaluru, Nov 4: Pakistan Fakhar Zaman has revealed that the team was ‘praying’ for no resumption after the second rain break as Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 21 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis Stern method (DLS) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday.
Receiving ‘Player of the Match’ for his inspiring innings of 126 off 83 deliveries, hitting eight boundaries and 11 sixes, Zaman in the post-match presentation said it was his day.
“To be honest, I was lucky a few times but really enjoyed this inning. We know every game is a do or die for us and we have decided to play aggressively and we are playing with that mind so everybody is just trying to score runs,” said Zaman.
“We were also praying that we don’t want any more game to happen because it was already 9 and half hours and we knew that DLS would come into the equation,” Zaman added. (PTI)
