PAK vs ZIM: Shan Masood disappointed over his performance

Pakistan cricket team’s top-order batter Shan Masood has said that he is disappointed with not being able to stand till the end and finish the match for the team after his side was beaten by Zimbabwe in the ICC T20 World Cup match here on Thursday. Shan told journalists that he takes responsibility for not being able to finish the game for his team.

“I was trying to play ball by ball. I think I was in a decent position to finish the game and take it upon myself. These are the games you should win for your country, especially when you’re the last-standing batsman. I am very disappointed. It was a funny way to get out but I take responsibility for not being able to finish the game,” he said about his innings.

Shan scored 44 runs off 38 balls before being stumped by Regis Chakabva off Sikandar Raza. The top-order batter said that losing two matches after coming so close is demoralising for the team. The only way to lift the team’s morale is to come back to the ground and give our best.

He added that each point in the tournament is very important, especially when you’re placed alongside tough teams like South Africa, India, and Bangladesh.

“The thing that we have in our hand is our next three games where we have to do well”.

Shan said that Babar and Rizwan are two important batters for Pakistan. Their runs are always important for the team.

“We shouldn’t talk about fixing things that are going well. Babar and Rizwan are the two main batters of the team and in the last two games, we all have seen how important their runs are for the squad,” he said. “Today we didn’t do well as a batting unit. We made some mistakes, we will sit back and review that and try not to repeat them,” he concluded.
