After losing the match, Pakistan captain Babar Azam said, “The way we started was according to our plan. We also made a good total but today our bowling was not that accurate and if you drop catches on such occasions, then the match will be like this.” He will turn and that was also the turning point. The way we played the entire tournament is appreciable. We are expecting the team to do better in the days to come. Every player played the role that was assigned to him. The way people supported us was great. We thank them.”

Reaching the final, Finch said, “I thought this match was going to be out of our hands. The ball that Shaheen got me out today was a great ball. Today we dropped a lot of catches while fielding, although Wade and Stoinis did. The way he played the innings was amazing.”
