“Celebrate my friends, but don’t get over-excited. We are known for this, let’s change it. We are here to win the World Cup, let’s not get over-excited” – Babar Azam litterally pleaded with his team.
Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan scored half-centuries after Shaheen Shah Afridi wrecked the Indian batting order with his fiery bowling spell.
Babar addressed the team in the dressing room after the epic win and credited everyone for the victory.
“This is not anyone’s individual’s performance; we have won this as a team,” Babar said while lauding his teammates.“We must keep our team spirit intact, we need to move as a team in the tournament, and this is just the start,” the Pakistani captain said.
“Enjoy the win but don’t get over-excited, we have a long tournament, and we need to remain focused on our goal — to win the world cup,” Babar said.
“We can’t be relaxed and complacent at any time, and everyone needs to give 100%. We will enjoy today, and that’s it. I request you again that don’t fall prey to overexcitement, as the next game is as important, and we must not be relaxed for that game,” the Pakistani captain.
Pakistan will play their next match of the tournament on Tuesday against New Zealand. India’s next encounter will also be against New Zealand and will be played on 31st October.
