Sarfaraz Ahmed said : "When the team isn't performing then the captain is responsible," “The management did their best to help us, but ultimately it's up to the players and the captain to deliver. The management has no role to play in that, whether it's the World Cup or this series". "We didn't play well at all in this series and a young team showed us how to play. The cricket they were playing, this is the cricket we were playing in the last 30 games," he added. The 32-year-old also bemoaned the fielding lapses which ultimately helped the visitors in putting up a competitive total in the third T20Is.

Both are experienced players and once they settle in, they will perform. So I give my full backing for them as a captain. Fakhar and Harris both have been part of the team for some time now,” “When we brought back Shahzad and Umar, we intended to make them play in their own positions. Had we played Fakhar, then Shahzad would have been made to play at one down. Me and coach Misbah bhai decided to try Shahzad as an opener. With our eyes on the World Cup, if Ahmed is able to settle himself at this opening number, we can never find a better player like him. Similar with Umar. We wanted to play him in his number and hence had to drop Harris, who we have seen and have no doubt about his ability. We played six new players in the side without thinking about winning or losing. We wanted to play them and give them confidence because for any player, making a comeback isn’t really easy. You do come with performance in domestic but at the international level you take a few innings to get going” External link

Had we played Fakhar, then Shahzad would have been made to play at one down. Me and coach Misbah bhai decided to try Shahzad as an opener. With our eyes on the World Cup, if Ahmed is able to settle himself at this opening number, we can never find a better player like him. Similar with Umar. We wanted to play him in his number and hence had to drop Harris, who we have seen and have no doubt about his ability. We played six new players in the side without thinking about winning or losing. We wanted to play them and give them confidence because for any player, making a comeback isn’t really easy.
