Everyone put in their efforts for us to win the series: Babar Azam
Following white-washing Sri Lanka on their own turf, Babar Azam lauded the team for putting in extraordinary efforts to win the match. He also went on to add that the bowlers were fantastic in both matches as the Lankan batters failed to create any sort of impact.
“Very proud to win the series, all credit to the boys and the coaching staff who've worked hard from the last 3-4 months. Everyone put in their efforts for us to win the series. We ticked all the boxes, worked hard on batting and fielding. Not a lot of it on the pitch for the pacers but they bowled really well in both Tests. This is a team game, Saud in the first Test and Abdullah here were outstanding.
“We are taking it series by series and will try to perform at our best. We decided to play positive cricket and play up to our strengths. We want an improvement of at least 5-10%. It's not easy to win here, but we dominated them in both matches,” Babar said in the post-match presentation.
