‘It was just a bad day’

Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said his side would want to forget the poor performance against West Indies as a “bad day” and make a strong comeback in matches to come.

West Indies had defeated Pakistan by seven wickets at Trent Bridge in Nottingham after Pakistan were bowled out for mere 105 runs.

Speaking at the post match press conference after Pakistan’s defeat, Sarfaraz said that there are eight more matches to go and Pakistan team will surely make a comeback.

“We lost some quick wickets in first ten overs and we couldn’t recover well from the early setback,” he said.

Three overs, one maiden, four runs and two wickets -- the figures speak volumes about how much of an impact Andre Russell had in West Indies’ seven-wicket rout of Pakistan at Trent Bridge in Nottingham yesterday. Russell started off his brief spell by removing Fakhar Zaman in his first over with a brilliant bouncer that hit the grille of the opener’s helmet before rolling back onto the stumps. However, it was a pity that the all-rounder did not get the chance to portray his batting abilities in their World Cup opener yesterday. Photo: Reuters

“It wasn’t our day, it was just a bad day, we will try to move on from here and recover before next games. I am confident that the team will bounce back in next games,” the wicket-keeper batsman hoped.
