Rohit Sharma on IND vs PAK T20 match, “If the situation demands that it’s a shorter game, we will be ready for that, as well. A lot of the guys have played such kinds of games before, and they know how to manage themselves in a situation like that where you are getting ready for a 40-over game and then suddenly it’s a 20-over game for both sides, 10 overs each or 5 overs each. Luckily, we played one game in India against Australia which was an 8-over game.”
Babar Azam on IND vs PAK T20 match, “He’s played here and he knows the conditions here, it’s his home ground in the Big Bash League. So he’s passed on quite a bit of information to the bowlers, and to the batters too. The way he’s improved as a bowler, the way he’s leading. He didn’t let us feel the pinch of Shaheen’s absence. And he’ll be a big help.”
