While praising Kohli following the loss the Pakistani skipper said, “In the first ten overs, our bowlers were excellent. Virat and Hardik deserve credit for how they closed the game.” While further explaining the impact of the knock on Kohli’s form, Babar said, “Winning a pressure game will help Kohli’s psyche following a three-year slump. Pakistan vs India is always an extra-pressure game; the more quickly you can overcome it, the better. That’s why he is a big player, there was pressure on him, and he overcame it and built his innings. The way they built partnership was the turning point.”

On the other hand while justifying his decision to delay Mohd. Nawaz’s last over the 28 year old said, “When the (Kohli-Pandya) partnership was building, we needed to get wickets, and I thought of bringing my main bowler and building pressure. But the plan didn’t work out as I would have thought. Nawaz will learn from this and realize what he needs to do next time he faces this kind of situation. We remain confident. We will learn from this defeat. Some good things happened, and some mistakes happened. We will deliberate, and it’s just the start of the tournament, and we have a lot of games left.”
