After the match, Babar Azam said: “After losing a couple of early wickets, we thought 170 was a good score. Maybe we were 10 runs or so short, but the way Salt batted in the first 4-5 overs, they took the game away from us. The way they used the powerplay was the turnaround today. I think the middle-order needs to step up, they need to take responsibility. As openers, we need to build partnerships to not put the pressure on them.”
Moeen Ali said: “Very happy, the way we batted in particular was outstanding. We killed the game straight away, shows that if we stick to the processes, we can win. The seamers were very good today. There was also no slogging today, just some good shots off-side and leg-side by our batters. It’s been a good series, 3-3 heading into the final and all to play for. (On Jos Buttler) He’s training a lot more now, we don’t know though if we may risk him with the World Cup so close. There are games to play in Australia as well. But you never know, he may turn up day after.”
