Shadab Khan rues Pakistan's poor powerplay batting, lauds 'very good' Jacob Duffy


Pakistan lost their top four in the first six overs, with debutant Duffy taking three of those wickets

Pakistan captain Shadab Khan bemoaned the loss of wickets in the powerplay, blaming the poor start for their defeat in the opening T20I of the three-match series. Pakistan suffered a horror start on what was considered such a good batting pitch that the visitors won the toss and opted to bat.

“If we lose the first powerplay it’s difficult to come back,” Shadab said. “We went down to 20 for 4 and then we did exceptionally well to get to where we did. But if you get into that position it is difficult to come back. We were a bit rusty, and the conditions here are different to Pakistan. They are young players who will learn quick.”
