Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has held the team’s bowling department accountable for the loss against England in the second T20I at Headingley on Sunday.
The 26-year-old batsman reflected on the team’s performance after the hosts claimed the second match by 45 runs.
“We gave away too many runs, perhaps 30 too many, and weren’t able to carry through the momentum we built at the top,” he said in the post-match presentation ceremony.
“Happy with our spinners but the fast bowlers leaked too many runs and we’ll look to rectify that in the next game. Hope for an improved performance. It was disappointing that I lost my wicket at a crucial time,” he said.
“We will bring back our ability to chase down a total because we’ve done it in the past,” he added.
