Pakistan vs Scotland, ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Highlights: PAK extend unbeaten run with 72-run victory over SCO
  • Well that brings us to the end of our coverage for today. New Zealand sealed the final semifinal spot with a dominant win over Afghanistan and then Pakistan extended their unbeaten run with another strong performance against Scotland. 

    Join us again tomorrow as India round up the Super 12 stage as they take on Namibia at 7:30 PM IST. Till then it’s goodbye and goodnight. 

  • Babar Azam (Pakistan Captain): We are confident about each other's ability. We are playing as a unit and hence playing consistent cricket. We wanted to bat first. We couldn't play well in the Powerplay. Hafeez played well and so did Malik. He used his experience and played well towards the end. We have been confident. We would want to continue with the same momentum. Dubai is one of the best stadiums. We love the fans over here and there as well. The way they come and cheer for us is amazing.

  • Kyle Coetzer (Scotland Captain): I thought we really bowled well. Specially in the Powerplay. When you know the kind of quality Pakistan has in the batting department, they will get hold of you. It is a huge occasion for associate nations. Going home, we hope we have inspired people back home. If you play hard enough, you can be a part of the competition like this. We have got some fantastic players in our group. Playing in these conditions was challenging for us. And then we will assess what would be the challenges when we play the World Cup in Australia.

  • Shoaib Malik (54* off 18 balls) - Player of the Match: As we saw in the previous games if we don't lose wickets early then there's a chance of putting a good total in the end and that's been the talk in the dressing room, to get to 150 and not give any early wickets. If you're playing on a good track, then you take a couple of balls to get your eye in before you start attacking, but on these tracks, you might take 6-8 balls assess the conditions and then start playing your shots. Win is a big thing, you take a lot of confidence going deep into the tournament. For myself, I'm in good form and I want to be more consistent which can help the team, still fit and it's going to be a big game (Semis) and we are going to give our best shot.
