Shan Masood believes losing to England hurts Pakistan
Shan Masood, a batsman in the middle order for Pakistan, has said that your individual run total is nothing if your team loses. Pakistan lost to England by 63 runs in the third T20I despite Shan scoring 65 runs off of 40 balls.
Pakistan’s score of 198 was well short of England’s target of 222. The batsman, who was appearing in his third T20I, said that scoring runs are an advantage of being at the crease for a while and learning the tempo of the game, but that the final score wasn’t in Pakistan’s favor, so he can’t feel good about it.
The elegant hitter was asked what went wrong for the team that chased 200 the day before and remarked that England played terrific cricket. Shan was optimistic that Pakistan might come back from a 2-1 series deficit.
“We must give credit to England for the way they played. First how they batted especially Ben Duckett and Harry Brook and then their bowling in the powerplay, the way Reece Topley and Mark Wood bowled and got our top order out was outstanding,” Shan said.
“When you’re playing against a top side, a quality side then they’ll always come up with their best game. We have to learn from our mistakes and make sure that we don’t repeat them,” he said.
“World Cup is the event where everyone will have to produce results, in this series we will be trying different things so that we can be fully prepared with a combination and strategy for the World Cup and perform well there,” Shan said.
