Muhammad Waseem, star of game, said, “”It was tough bowling at the death after so long, but I was always confident. I think the way we bowled the second-last over, we got back into the game. The plan was to keep it straight as the boundaries in front of the wicket were very long. The previous two games also we were in winning positions, we could have won them. Very happy to have won a World Cup game for the first time.”
