While shedding light on his stay in Pakistan Nasser said, “I have really loved every second of today. Honestly. We’ve had fun in the commentary box. But just generally, in and around the hotels, I cannot tell you the number of people that come up to you and say ‘thanks for coming over’. It has been great, we’ve waited 22 years. The cricket has been really good as well. So, thoroughly enjoyed and I hope we come back much more often than we have. I hope a load of countries come out here because Pakistan is a great cricketing nation.”

Explaining the weak areas in Babar’s captaincy the former middle-order batter further said, “Babar keeps his fielders out for a lot. There was a top-edge sweep when Harry Brook went from 49 to 51 and Faheem Ashraf was right on the boundary. Stokes would have had him 20 yards in and the catch would’ve been taken.”
